Rihanna showed off the newest addition to her rather large collection of tattoos on Twitter; a depiction of the Egyptian goddess Isis across her ribcage.
RiRi had been caught leaving the tattoo parlor early yesterday, but the new tattoo was hard to see considering it was still wrapped in plastic.
When Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend hit the stage with Jay-Z and Coldplay for the 2012 London Paralympics, however, Rihanna showed off her new tattoo with a shear, see-through red top.
The new ink is believed to be an allusion to the “We Found Love” singer’s late grandmother who passed away in July of this year after an ongoing battle with cancer.
“Goddess Isis – Complete Woman – Model for future generations – #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart #1love,” the VMA award winner posted on twitter along with a close up photo of the tattoo.
Although many have seemed to lose count, it is believed that the depiction of the Egyptian goddess makes tattoo number 18 for the 24-year-old beauty from Barbados.
However, not everybody was focused on RiRi’s new tattoo, some were more concerned about her new all black pixie cut hair do.
“I think @Rihanna needs to grow her hair back. Fast,” late night talk show host Piers Morgan tweeted after catching a glimpse of the do.
Of course, the feisty “Birthday Cake” singer didn’t hesitate to respond.
“Grow a d**k … FAST,” she tweeted back at Morgan.
Rihanna may have also spoken to her ex Chris Brown via Twitter in a rather poetic manner.
“Red lipstick. Rose petals. Heartbreak… I was his Marilyn Monroe… Brown eyes…. Tuxedo … Fast cars… A James Dean on the low,” the tattoo covered R&B singer tweeted before finally adding, “What’s love without tragedy?”
