    This steamy GQ video got me thinking about Rihanna‘s tattoos. Did you know she has 18 of them? I had no idea! If you’ve never seen them all up close and personal, here’s your chance!

    PS. Her regular tattoo parlour is Bang Bang Tattoos on 26 Clinton Street, in the Lower East Side in New York City.

    Tattoo #1 : musical note on right her ankle

    Pronounced kṣamā satyaṃ damaḥ śamaḥ bhayaṃ cābhayam eva ca –  these words from the Gita written in Devanagari mean “Forgiveness, Honesty, Suppression and Control.” (Unfortunately whoever did RiRi’s tattoo apparently made a few mistakes!)

    Tattoo #10 : XI-IV-LXXXVI in roman numerals on her shoulder

    The date 4.11.1986 (April 11, 1986) is her best friend and assistant, Melissa Forde‘s birthday. Melissa got the same tattoo of Rhianna’s Birthday just after her.

    Tattoo #11 : Maori-inspired geometric design 

    She got this one 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!”

    Tattoo #13 : “Never A Failure, Always A Lesson” (Mirrored) On Shoulder/Clavicle

    This empowering message appears to be entirely for her own benefit because it’s been etched on back to front so she’ll be able to take read it in the mirror.

    Tattoo #14 : Rebelle Fleur her neck

    That’s French for “rebellious flower” but there’s some disagreement about whether it’s grammatically correct!

    Tattoo # 18: Goddess Isis under/between her breasts

    Rihanna’s grandmother died last July after a long battle with cancer. She dedicated her new body art to GranGranDolly on Twitter. She is said to symbolize the eternal mother, friend to slaves, sinners and the helpless.
