Ouch! Watch Rihanna Get A Maori Tribal Tattoo In New Zealand

09 October 2013 by

We all know Rihanna is a fan of tattooing and isn't afraid of putting them on display, err, anywhere or everywhere, but today the star has taken her inking habits to a whole other level. Rather than simply sharing a snap on Instagram, an actual video of Ri-Ri being tattoo'd has found its way onto the interwebs.

Yes, thanks to the wonder of YouTube, us mere mortals can WATCH Rihanna getting a traditional Maori Tattoo (moko) on her hand. The tattooing took place in New Zealand where Ri-Ri was staying as part of her world tour by legendary tattooist Inia Taylor of Mokoink.com and Tiki Taane.

One thing's for sure, Rihanna is mighty brave as she giggles through the process and looks surprisingly calm as the men tap away at her knuckles using a chisel and mallet. Yep, there's no needles here, people. So thumbs up to Ri-Ri for giving the local traditions a go but we'll be sticking to slightly less painful ways on our next holiday, thanks.
