Well, it only took me a few minutes to find what I needed, but I was busy with another post so this had to wait.
I’ve come to find out that the Bajan beauty has approximately 10 11 12 13 14 tattoos! It sounds like a lot, maybe even way too many, but Rihanna‘s good for placing them in spots that aren’t so “out there”. Though they’re not as noticeable, I still think she’s obsessed, and she’s even admitted it!
“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.”
Back in September [’07], Rihanna told Atlanta Peach Magazine,
“I have four tattoos. The one on my ankle is a music note. There’s a Pisces sign behind my right ear. There’s a star in my left ear, and a Sanskrit prayer going down my hip.”
Since then, Rihanna has gotten even more tatted up. So, how many tattoos does Rihanna have? Here’s the full list that I’ve concocted…
