Rihanna Gets Traditional Maori Tattoo In New Zealand Using Chisel, Ink And Mallet

Posted: Updated:

Rihanna is in New Zealand these days as part of her "Diamonds" world tour and is set to move on to South Africa next week. To make sure she doesn't forget her visit to that part of the world, RiRi got herself inked with a traditional Maori tattoo which, instead of a needle, involves a chisel, ink pigment and a mallet.

In a video uploaded by Tiki Taane, a New Zealander musician and tattoo artist who worked on the "We Found Love" singer with tattooist Inia Taylor, Rihanna is seen grimacing as little arrows are hammered into her right hand.

The 25-year-old already has over a dozen tattoos, including the goddess Isis on her chest, music notes on her ankle, stars on her back and a gun on her rib cage.

The video below shows blood and may be difficult for some to watch:
