AceShowbiz - %cRihanna% was spotted on Wednesday night, August 12 stopping by Bang Bang tattoo parlor in New York City. The 27-year-old "Diamonds" hit maker wore a simple white long-sleeved top, ripped sweatpants, and platform lace-up shoes. Later that day, she was spotted sporting a new body art above her right ankle.
The latest addition into her extensive body art collection was simply "1998." It was assumed that the number was meant as a reference to the year the singer was born.
Bang Bang shared on its Instagram account an image of Rihanna's new tattoo. "@badgalriri like I told you last night- you're my favorite person to tattoo "1988"" the studio wrote alongside the image. Rihanna later shared the image on her own Instagram and captioned it simply with "killz Tagged by my dear friend @bangbangnyc."
The new inking marked over 20 tattoos for Rihanna, the ten of which were inked by Bang Bang. She had most recently etched a tribal design covering her entire right hand prior to the ankle tattoo.
