Rihanna is channeling Tupac with her latest “Thug Life” tattoo.
Rihanna revealed the famous line sprawled across her knuckles in white ink. The thing about a tattoo is that it is permanent. Will Rihanna really want thug life on her knuckles at 57? I understand wanting to pay homage and embrace the mantra but would it have been better served on a more private portion of her body? Now she’ll drive magazine photo artist crazy as they try to Photoshop the words out of her fashion spreads.
With such a drastic measure one can only wonder was it a cry for attention. Just a few days ago Rihanna ended up at the same party as Chris Brown and his girlfriend Karrueche. Some sites even report that she got into a heated exchange of words with Karrueche. Could the new tattoo be a way for her to let out some anger and illustrate her aggression? Whatever the case may be, I doubt this is the last drastic move we see from Rihanna. This tattoo comes only a week after she was photographed smoking kush while on vacation in Hawaii. We all know she walks to the beat of her own drum, but are we seeing a return of the black-haired much darker Rihanna? It seems she’s throwing caution to the wind – even more than usual.
Whatever happens, hopefully her next move won’t be so visible.
