It's no secret Rihanna is a fan of tattoos, but the way she inked her latest one brings new meaning to body art. Check out the details behind the "Stay" crooner's painful ink process. It's no secret Rihanna is a fan of tattoos, but the way she inked her latest one brings new meaning to body art.
The "Stay" crooner got a traditional Polynesian tattoo on his fingers, with tattoo artist Inia Taylor from Moko Ink placing the pattern on her right hand using the traditional Maori process--a chisel and hammer to ink it on, according to the New York Daily News.
As if that doesn't sound bad enough, you can actually watch Rihanna undergoing the painful process, courtesy of New Zealand musician Tiki Taane, who assisted with the tattoo and posted the video of it on YouTube.
While the singer tried to keep her cool during the tattooing, it was clear she was in pain as she rocked back and forth and shook her head as Inia pounded the tools into each finger and down her hand.
Rihanna got the tattoo in New Zealand, where she was in town to perform for her "Diamonds World Tour."
After jetting out of New Zealand Wednesday, Rihanna is headed to South Africa for another tour performance Oct. 13 after a few days off.
