Ow!! This has got to be the most excruciating experience to watch, or be apart of!
Rihanna is about this tattoo lifestyle! RiRi was ready, willing, and all giggles to experience pain for her newest body art. The singer suffers in silence throughout the whole unbelievable process of having a traditional Polynesian tribal tattoo put onto her tiny fingers and hand with the traditional tools — mallet & chisel.
In the two-minute video, the singer is seen at the workshop of Moko Ink tattooist Inia Taylor, who uses the handheld mallet, chisel & ink to create a pattern on the singer’s right hand. Rihanna squirms and flinches away at times, then wipes away blood from her hand along with a smirk & light laugh. (Everyone who has body art knows that laugh.. it’s painful but it’s thrilling. Or maybe she’s crazy. *Shrugs*)
