Rihanna's New Cross Tattoo
Rihanna's New Cross Tattoo, PIC: See Rihanna's New Cross Tattoo, Rihanna can't stop, won't stop when it comes to loading up on tattoos. For her latest ink, she went to her favorite NYC tattoo artist, Bang Bang, and his soon-to-be-opened tattoo parlor on the Lower East Side. While there on Thursday, the "We Found Love" singer opted for a tiny cross on the left side of her collarbone.
"We cut the color with water, so it'll end up being light -- like the "rebelle" tattoo on her neck," Bang Bang, 26, describes to Us Weekly about the star's new ink. He adds that she decided to place her tattoo on her collarbone because it's easy for her to hide with a necklace but also can be in plain sight.
"She loved it," Bang Bang, who has done around 12 of her various tattoos including the "Shhh" one on her finger, tells Us. "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, who is the man behind the ink on Katy Perry, Russell Brand, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and other stars, has been tattooing since he was 19 years old and celebrates the opening of "the largest tattoo shop in NYC" this spring.
