Rihanna's New Chest Tattoo: Never A Failure, Always A Lesson

Rihanna's New Chest Tattoo: Never A Failure, Always A Lesson

Rihanna got some new ink at NYC tattoo parlor East Side Ink earlier this week.

“She came in at about 2:00 A.M.,” East Side Ink owner and artist Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy tells OK!. “She told me in advance she’d be coming, and then when she got there, she told me what she wanted: ‘Never a failure, always a lesson,’ but written backwards.”

Bang Bang continues, “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.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Rihanna’s new tattoo — HOT or NOT?

    first?

  • Sammyjo

    Hate her! I wish her 15 minutes would hurry up and be over! She’s just trashy!

  • Zoe

    NOT!! This is NOT coo, itt’s ugly and it will look worse as she gets older. It’s a good motto but what is the point of tatooing it on your body or are you too stupid to remember it.

  • T

    HOT!!

  • Lilly Pie

    Can’t stand this chick and I’ve never liked her songs. She thinks she’s sooo hot but she’s freak’n ugly and looks like a alien. She must be too stupid to remember the motto to have it tatooed on.

  • baby

    Great tattoo. More celeb & Angelina tattoos on angelinajolie.forumotions.com

  • Y

    Well…the tattoo’s okay and everything, but the the photos are kinda annoying – too ‘pose-y’. Why can’t she just smile? She’d look much nicer.

  • Ice

    She is too young to be inking her body up so much.

  • Fyn

    Tatoos are so yesterday!
    Once every Tom, Dick and Harry sport a taatoo, the appeal is gone!

  • oh snap

    It’s trashy like her.

  • http://kennowen.blogspot.com/ ganymede30324

    Considering that she cannot commit to a hairstyle or color, is it really wise to invest in permanently marking her body?

  • Catalina

    She always looks so dirty.

  • MISS INDEPENDENT!!

    THIS IS UNBELIEVEABLE… I GOT THAT SAME TATTOO ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY CHEST!! I LOVE THE TATTOO ON HER CHEST TOO!! THIS IS SOOO GREAT!!

    WHY IN GODS NAME WOULD YOU SPENT YOUR TIME TO POST A REACTION ON RIHANNA’S TOPICS?? HA, TELL ME?!

    YOU JUST SAY YOU HATE HER OR THAT YOU’RE SICK AND TIRED OF HER, BUT THIS PROVES THAT Y’ALL NOT “BIG-RIHANNA-HATERS” BUT “OBSESSIVE-RIHANNA-LOVERS”!!!

    YOUR CAUGHT IN A BAD ROMANCE, BABY!!
    I WANT YOUR LOVE AND ALL YOUR LOVERS REVENGE… YOU AND ME COULD WRITE A BAD ROMANCE!! HAHA…

  • yes

    She is going to look a mess when she’s 50.
    All those ugly tats.

  • enoughalready

    Rihanna needs thereapy and not because of Chris. Rihanna cant take what she put out when she was laughing at other individuals who had actual talent and did not make it when their CD came out. They knew from the start this girls talent was limited to only looks, they got away with it with the others and GGGB and thought they had fooled everyone! Not So! Now she is getting a much needed wake up call and she wants to tat her self with that slogan, if that’s how she wants to mask a FLOP then so be it. She will regret it in the end! What the World needs now is TALENT from you not walking the streets plotting! They better stop her from doing live performances cause that’s the problem! You know it’s getting ready to get worst when the HARD video comes out looking a hot mess!

  • lol

    @MISS INDEPENDENT!!: You stans are delusional. Good luck in buying those extra CDs! lol.

  • hotlanta

    She needs to lose that silly cap.

  • kick me

    It looks good !! .. but I wrote my opinion yesterday at the other Rihanna post !! .. Even the motto doesn’t it change that much !! ..

    “I don’t fail” !! .. That’s a HARD tattoo !! ..

    @JJ .. you thinking ?! .. I wrote in a Rihanna post yesterday and today again ?! .. overexposure ?? ..

  • Sway

    Agree, she does need therapy. She hits NY and makes a beeline to get a new tattoo and makes sure she’s photographed so it hits the pages of OK magazine. The girl is too attention-seeking. Something is not right. She probably calls the paps on herself.

  • elisa

    another tatoo??? she already looks awful whith the others
    sorry but too many tatoos looks trashy, and even moore in a girl

    what is going on whith her???
    it seems that chris brown cause her brain damage because she doesn´t seems to be the same since that incident

  • nyro

    Ugly tat.

  • MAC

    she went down south after she get beated up by chris

  • GROSS

  • GROSS

    THE TRANNY IS A TATTOO QUEEN.

  • whatever

    She seems to feel she’s tough by tatting up her body.

  • ,,,,

    Great idea for a tattoo, although I am not into them for myself.
    I too have made so many mistakes and you do need to learn from them.
    Betrayed by family
    Robbed by friends
    Backstabbed by husband
    Put too much trust into too many people.
    We all have to do damage control.
    That’s life.
    The best things in life are free:
    Sunshine, the beach, a walk in the park, the smell of fresh air, your health and mostly your children.

  • Lauren

    Nice Tattoo :)
    Random Place To Have It Tho :S

  • Kate

    Wait so she took these pics herself and leaked them? I’m guessing the tattoo artist wouldn’t do it without her consent and risk losing her as a client……….

  • dieu

    this girl is becoming nonessential by the second…

  • Luiza

    she looks like a old tranny

  • Rebecca

    is it backwards or is it just because the pic makes it backwards.please answer,i just cant figure it out! IM KINDA DUH SOMETIMES

  • Dan

    She is the type that needs a daily reminder so I think it’s a good idea. Now if she would only get her ass in therapy instead of trolling for daily photo-ops.

  • Sammyjo

    InFamouslyCool: ummmm….now anybody with common sense and a little intelligence would understand the saying “15 minutes of fame”. May I explain it for you. It’s not 15 minutes LITERALLY, it means a “short time”. Please tell me….how long has this trashy person been in the spotlight? What…she’s like 21 isn’t she? WOW! That’s a lot of years under her belt! Get a grip! Again may I say…..I can’t wait for her 15 minutes of fame to be over!!! She’ll be done by 25!

  • san

    I think it’s backwards so that she can read every time she looks in the mirror. I guess

  • tatsareoff

    Time for Rhianna to get her head examined. Tats are cheap looking, especially on women. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE SPREAD THIS INFORMATION!

  • Wow

    From a far Looks like she had shoulder surgery. Such gorgeous skin going to waste

  • http://www.crookedbrook.com/ Chef Coa

    Hopefully there’s at least one lesson she won’t need re-learning.

  • http://www.crookedbrook.com/ Chef Coa

    @Sammyjo: I agree. She’s giving 15 minutes a very bad name!

  • http://collegehookup247.com Beth Bubbles

    Wow she is so deep

  • alexis

    ummm no offense to anyone who likes her or her music but she does need therapy like a.s.a.p not cuz of cb i always thought she was crazy and she is turning even more crazier and its creepy her outfits have never been cute they have always been wiered and awkward and she should have never cut her hair cuz it gets shorter and shorter and goth and goth no offence im kool with goths :) but she is tryna be something shes not ! idk wat happen to her? she changes n changes

    &&her music WAS{USE TO BE}GOOd now its ishy?

    and BANG BANG???wtf ? y wud u put THAT quote BANG BANG? yea makes her sound like a hoe[though she is] no offense

    just my opinion

  • emmaa

    Okay this is the last tattoo she should have now lol

  • http://www.box.net/shared/i10uxhtuoj Big Pimpin’

    she needs to stop. stop trying to be edgy. just stop.

  • Whoever

    @Sammyjo:

    15 minutes is like a one hit wonder, not the female with the second most hits of the decade! Your logic sucks!
