Rihanna has 21 

known tattoos all over her body – from head to ankles. She even has created a tattoo by her own – including a little umbrella on her tattooist arm. She has started her romance with ink in 2006 when her first music note was created. Her latest add to the tattoos collection is a tattoo written in reverse so she can read it in the mirror. It says "Never a failure, always a lesson" tattooed across her upper right chest –in light gray ink. She said, "It’s kind of my motto in life for everything."




"I like hanging out in tattoo shops", Rihanna has said. "I am so intrigued by tattoos. It’s an entire culture, and I study it. Sometimes I go with friends, or just by myself. I get bum-rushed, but I don’t care. I don’t take security."

The most known tattoo artist that has created her tattoos is Bang Bang. He’s the most amazing author of her most recent tattoos including starts, guns and the famous "shhh" on her forefinger.

Music Notes on her right foot Edit

This appears to be Rihanna’s first tattoo. She got it around somewhere in 2006. It was obviously inspired by her fresh music career. Rihanna has once said that music is in her D.N.A. Now everyone can easily notice that music tunes are on her foot as well.

Tribal Sign Edit

Rihanna revealed that she got the exotic-looking tat while in New Zealand during her tour. "It’s their traditional way of tattooing", she said of the Maori-inspired geometric design. "I always wanted [one]". "It represents strength and love". But even for a tattoo enthusiast like Rihanna, this particular method had one big drawback: "It hurts like hell!"

Motto in mirror writing Edit

Rihanna hit up East Side Ink at 2 AM at the morning to have her own personal motto "Never a failure, always a lesson" tattooed backwards near her right shoulder. That way she can read it in the mirror.

"I asked her why she wanted that and she said, ‘It’s kind of my motto in life for everything.’ Instead of considering things to be mistakes, considering them lessons." "She said that she wanted to do it in gray, rather than black, because she wanted it to be more subtle," explains Bang Bang. "She didn’t want it to draw too much attention."
Rihanna said, " i had it done backwards so i can read it everyday in the mirror."

Rebelle Fleur Edit

It means rebel flower in French and it was tattooed on her neck. Unfortunately it was mispelled. In French, adjectives typically follow the nouns they modify. To translate as "rebel flower", which we assume is what she intended, that tattoo should read "fleur rebelle."
