The singer's favorite tattoo artist, Bang Bang, said she jumped up and down like a little girl whenever a new art is done.
Rihanna adds to her collection of body art, a small cross on her collarbone area. The "Birthday Cake" singer went to her favorite tattoo artist, Bang Bang, in New York City on Thursday, March 15 to get inked. Bang Bang is opening his new tattoo parlor on the Lower East Side.
"We cut the color with water, so it'll end up being light -- like the 'rebelle' tattoo on her neck," Bang Bang told Us Weekly. Rihanna's decision to have it on her collarbone, according to the artist, is so that it could be in plain sight but could be hidden with a necklace as well.
"She loved it," Bang Bang continued. "She always flips out [when it's done] and jumps up and down like a 16-year-old girl getting her first car." Bang Bang has done 12 other inks for Rihanna including the "Shhh" tattoo on her finger.
It was only late January that Rihanna had a tattoo. She got the words "Thug Life" tattooed on her knuckles.
