Rihanna has to her 19-odd tattoos by getting inked with '1988' on her ankle on Wednesday.

The Bitch Better Have My Money singer was spotted leaving a tattoo parlour in New York yesterday, before she posted a picture on her Instagram to show off the newbie to her collection.

"killz Tagged by my dear friend @bangbangnyc," RiRi wrote alongside her snap.

Bang Bang commented underneath her image: "Like I told you last night-you're my favorite person to tattoo SIC '1988'".


Bang Bang, who tattooed RiRi on her right ankle, has also worked with Cara Delevingne, Miley Cyrus, and Lady Gaga.

While inside the tattoo shop, RiRi was also hanging out with rapper Travis Scott.

RiRi's many tattoos include a tribal print covering her entire right hand she had done in 2013 and a large tattoo under breast, of an Egyptian goddess, which she got to tribute her late grandmother, Dolly.

Nice anklets Ri.

Aside from getting a new tattoo, Ri's new love fling comes in the shape of a fellow tattoed buddy, British Formula One driver, Lewis Hamilton.

Earlier this week they were spotted having dinner together in New York and now they're chilling on the same yacht.

They're having a whale of a time in Barbados and according to sources RiRi is really "falling" for the Mercedes driver, who is currently on a break before he hits the track again for the Belgium Grand Prix next weekend.

Cara Delevingne1 of 17

Cara Delevingne

This was tat no.16 for Miss Cara, who hired Los Angeles artist - Dr Whoo - to ink her. It's a coat of arms that features the letter 'D' - for 'Delevingne' we presume.

Demi Lovato2 of 17

Demi Lovato

Demi debuted a ribcage tattoo [OUCH] of five lines of roman numerals. Each line of text appaz stands for a family member's birth date.

Rita Ora3 of 17

Rita Ora

This tat is supposed to represent that Rita and childhood friend, Anda, will be ballerinas until they're 102. Sweet.

Sarah Harding4 of 17

Sarah Harding

The former Girls Aloud singer has the words 'don't be bitter - glitter' scrolled across her back. Well tatt'd, Sarah.

Lindsay Lohan

"Love, truth and power" is the definition of Li-Lo's tattoo. She wrote on her website: "Wanted you guys to see it first. Feeling good and love you

So many tatts we had to include her again. This forearm inking says, 'I restore myself when I'm alone'. Chill at home with a good book style.

Frankie Bridge7 of 17

Frankie Bridge

The footballer's wife got sentimental with her sister Victoria when they got matching dove tattoos on their ankles. Frankie tweeted: "Painful sister love by the awesome...Freddy Negrete."

Emma Stone8 of 17

Emma Stone

This one has extra sentimental value. Emma Stone got this tattoo to celebrate her mum beating cancer. It was also designed by Sir Paul McCartney himself. The design includes two black birds, which represent both her and her mum and stem from their favourite Beatles song, Blackbird.

Selena Gomez9 of 17

Selena Gomez

Selena's tattoo artist, Bang Bang, explained: "The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her." The tattoo reads "LXXVI" which is the number 76. Selena's mother Amanda Teefey was born in 1976.

Rihanna10 of 17


Aside from it being huge and under her boobs - this piece of permanent body art, represends a goddess and is in memory of her late grandmother. RiRi said: "Goddess Isis - Complete Woman - Model for future generations #GRANGRANDOLLY - always in and on my heart." Lovely and sentimental.

Lana Del Rey11 of 17

Lana Del Rey

On her right hand she has the words 'Trust no one' and on the other, the word 'Paradise'. Independent, strong, but maybe trust some people though, eh Lana?

Jessie J12 of 17

Jessie J

On her right wrist Jessie has 'Stand Up' inked with a heart. We're guessing it's something to do about standing up for what you believe/stand up and be stronge/when you're knocked down stand back up again? Either way, we like.

Tulisa Contostavlos13 of 17

Tulisa Contostavlos

To celebrate T's 27th birthday today, we've found 15 other female celebrities with strong, positive, inspiring tattoos. Here's Tulisa's 'The Female Boss' one to kickstart the occasion...

Adele14 of 17


Another mum-related tattoo here - but who doesn't love their mum? Adele has 'One Penny' tattooed on her wrist. The singer's mum's name is Penny, so it must be because of that. Aww.

Sienna Miller15 of 17

Sienna Miller

Sienna's permanent red carpet accessory comes in the shape of three little stars on her right shoulder. They are said to symbolise love, honour and trust.

Lady GaGa16 of 17

Lady GaGa

'Born This Way' is a dead giveaway and totally describes Lady GaGa. We're translating this as; celebrate who you are and don't worry about who's watching.

And this one...just because.
