Rihanna’s Tupac tattoo causes a stirJanuary 26th, 2012 - 8:41 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Los Angeles, Jan 26 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Rihanna is a big fan of the lifestyle of late rapper Tupac Shakur. The singer tweeted a picture of her new tattoo which has the words “Thug Life.” Tupac first used that slogan and had it tattooed on his torso.
In the picture, the Barbados-born singer holds a fist on both hands revealing the new permanent tattoo which has one letter of the slogan on each finger minus the two thumbs.
This is not the first time that the image has been seen in public. Back in September, the singer was pictured having the marking on her fingers in Brazil. That inking though seemed not permanent. She however seems to have made the markings permanent now. That was not the only picture that the Only Girl In the World star showed to the world.
She tweeted another picture of her at the tattoo parlor of renowned tattoo artist Mark Mahoney. She was holding a bottle of beer as she lay on the table for the procedure.
Tupac is regarded as one of the foremost influencers of the hip hop culture. He was killed when unidentified gunmen in a car shot him four times. The incident happened in 1996.
