Where the Bajan pop star gets cut.
Pop star Rihanna has never been shy about showing off her tattoos, including a full-body spread in InStyle where she showed off ink like a scattering of stars and a Sanskrit motto. Now the Barbados native, who has been far from the limelight since being assaulted by boyfriend Chris Brown, can add the gun show with two tiny above-the-armpit tats.
Rihanna commissioned Portuguese artist BangBang to do the art, even flying him out to L.A. to do the work. But you can visit BangBang in his natural habitat of Sintra, Portugal any day of the week, where his flagship tattoo shop has been in operation since 2000. He also handles appointments at East Side Ink in New York (97 Ave. B)

Tattoo-loving pop goddess Rihanna recently stopped in at Body Electric in Hollywood to get some more ink. Last time we checked, she was getting cut on the other coast at Whatever Tattoo in New York. The singer herself says:
I like hanging out in tattoo shops. I am so intrigued by tattoos. It's an entire culture, and I study it. Sometimes I go with friends or just by myself.
Since she doesn't seem to be slowing down on the body art front, we've gone ahead and put together a Rihanna Tattoo Map for ya.
Here's a souvenir that's OK for carry-on: A tattoo! That must have been what singer Rihanna figured when she walked into Whatever Tattoo on St. Mark's Place in New York City this weekend and got some new ink. Friday night tattoos: They're not just for Britney any more!
If you're taking that thing on the plane, though, keep it covered! This is Rihanna's fifth tattoo, so she knows how to wear it. But if you're thinking of getting your first, EHow offers some tips for your new tat.
