Rihanna: My New Wrist Tattoo is Tribal!

Rihanna: My New Wrist Tattoo is Tribal!

Rihanna shows off the new tattoo on her right wrist at a party sponsored by Gucci called the Tattoo Heart Collection to Benefit UNICEF at NYC’s Plaza Hotel on Wednesday. (Boyfriend Chris Brown has a matching one, as well as matching clusters of stars on their necks.)

The 20-year-old Bajan beauty said she got the Maori-inspired geometric design in New Zealand and explained, “It’s tribal. It represents strength and love. It’s their traditional way of tattooing. I always wanted [one]… [But] it hurt like hell!”

Other pictures include Rihanna (red dress) at the launch of the Tattoo Heart Collection also at The Plaza Hotel.

20+ pictures inside of Rihanna‘s new tribal hand tattoo…

    Too much ink. She’s starting to look cheap.

    Both dresses are quite ugly. The coat is beautiful though.

  • Jade

    She looks beautiful

  • paws

    please Riri, STOP with the ink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • West

    that’ll look great in 20 years……

  • rosa

    She has gorgeous eyes, but the rest of her is fug.

  • tom c

    that’s UGLY!

  • gossip girl

    She’s cute but with that hair cut she looks like a guy.

  • Harlem

    It looks like somebody shit on her hand.

  • Digg

    I hate large tattoos. Not attractive at all.

  • g

    omy watch as the haters come out…she a pretty girl her hair is short becasue she probably wants no hassle

  • JMO

    I don’t like the purple dress. It makes Rihanna look like a 40 yr old woman.

  • Insider

    Pretty is a subjective term. My connections tell me her hair is not real cause she’s balding. That’s a wig, baby!

  • Yes I Can

    Why does she want to look tacky?

    She needed to stop 15 tats ago. Enough!

  • Miz

    I don’t find Rihanna “beautiful” at all. I think everything looks terrible except for her makeup. She has a nice body but the dresses are not flattering.

  • Ruben

    It doesn’t look real.

  • RM

    Her new tattoo reminds me of the one Cheryl Cole has on the side of her hand. Rihanna’s looks fake though, maybe because it’s new??

  • Vogue

    The first gown is too long and makes Rihanna look surprisingly matronly. The colour is all wrong too. I doubt she had much choice in the selection; it’s probably Gucci.

  • Bird

    looks like an ugly version of cheryl cole’s tat

  • spice

    Uh, RiRi, lavendar is NOT your color.

  • iluvjayz

    I don’t care about the ink, I can’t stop looking at that weave. Wtf they do to this child’s head??? Damn!!!

  • kiki

    she really said it hurt? looks like a temporary henna to me.

  • avionne

    She is soo pretty..and i actually love the tattoo..and would get one similar to it but im terrified of needles..and it looks like it hurt really bad.

  • anon

    That wig looks like a cat sitting on her head. Ridiculous.

  • PSA


  • t

    Bad colors. Bad hair. Bad dress. Bad style.

    Just bad all around.

  • yuck

    Yuck! She looks like Prince in a dress.

  • Jen

    I don’t like either outfit. Unfortunately when you’re a ‘spokesmodel’ you have to wear their clothes. It’s probably in her contract.

  • Stevie Wonder

    Ms. Warwick looks lovely and not a day over 50…

  • Julien

    I actually find that very pretty…but it’s not really in the most appropriate place…it’s always going to be visible…

  • boogie

    that dress color (lavender) is dreamy!

  • bonnie

    Isn’t she also wearing the cartier love handcuff bracelet? The one where you give the key to your partner and they have to unlock it to take it off?

  • reffi

    god bless frida giannini… she runs billion-$-Gucci and is still so down to earth!

  • Mandy

    I don’t know where to start on the hair. I think she looked better either with long hair or a bob. The dresses don’t suit her and when I saw the tattoo, I wasn’t really concentrating on that. Instead, I noticed the Cartier love bracelet on her hand. I never really noticed it until now but if I see one on Chris Brown too, I can’t help but say: ‘Aww!’

  • Ashley

    Oh no! The tattoos are hideous, what is she thinking? Do you really think she is going to like explaining to her children what each one is?

  • Courtney

    WOW!! She looks classy for once in a while lol

    Im used to all the black and darkness- which I LOVE TOO!

  • denise

    Rihanna is stunning.

  • rebecca

    it takes a lot to get one of those tattoos. im from nz and its cool to see she wanted to take a piece of us home. riri doesnt get simple, plain tattoos she gets interesting ones with meaning. we all know she can pull them off!!

  • AJ

    Although both tattoos and Rihanna are awesome, she just has too many now. This makes for her 11th tattoo.
    The stars on the back of her neck are my personal favorite. Glamorous and girly at the same time. :D

  • Tealeaf

    Rihanna is cute to me, that’s it. Her tattoo is ugly..I will be glad when her music career is up…she very limited in the talent dept.

  • mimi

    Rihanna’s got elvis hair……and that lilac dress washes her out.

  • kdsjdk


  • ciara

    She is soooo pretty, now this is a style star!!!!!

  • dialectic

    i love tats ,it looks weird now because its brand new ,i think its cool that shes into getting tats …she has a different style then alot of other singers

  • prncss

    bitches shut the fuck and quit fucking hatin on RIHANNA


  • Ray

    You people come here every damn day to look for a Rihanna post. Let her “LIVE HER LIFE” ! She looks great but I would expect these cheap little girls & boys to HATE !

    This is definitely a different look for her BUT I’m sure Gucci picked out both outfits for her wear. So if you think the dresses are ugly BLAME Gucci NOT Rihanna !

  • Kaiser

    Blame Gucci for the shit ugly dresses but not the awful hair. Riri needs a new stylist!

  • Jaclyn

    Th doesn’t look like a real tattoo. It looks like henna.

  • Wikitoria

    She doesn’t have the mana to wear that moko. Another stupid celebrity coming here (Aotearoa/New Zealand) and stealing taonga. You have to understand a culture before you take on its symbolism. She was here for 3 days!
