Rihanna opted not to use a needle machine for her latest tattoo.
No, RiRi decided to get a permanent reminder of her recent trip to New Zealand as part of her Diamonds World Tour by having a traditional Maori tattoo etched into her skin. Tattooist Inia Taylor used a chisel, ink pigment and a mallet.
The 25-year-old decided to get a permanent reminder of her recent trip to New Zealand as part of her Diamonds world tour by having a traditional Maori tattoo etched into her skin.
A local musician named Tiki Taane posted a two-minute video on YouTube of the singer getting the elaborate designs of lines and symbols from her fingernails down to the middle of her forearm from Taylor at the Moko Ink studio in West Auckland.
In the video, RiRi is seen maintaining her composure for the majority of the video, before she starts grimacing as the process comes to an end.
