Rihanna Gets Painful Maori Tattoo

Rihanna Get Traditional Maori Tattoo

While her “Diamonds” tour cruised through New Zealand  recently, Rihanna decided to go the old school route and get a Maori tattoo done the traditional way.  A local musician named Tiki Taane posted a video of Rihanna getting herself inked up with a chisel and mallet on her right hand, which left her bloody and bruised. In the footage, you can see the tattoo being created while the artist hammers little arrows into Rihanna’s right hand.

A statement on the Moko Ink website reads: “Moko Ink is the worlds first Maori Tattoo Studio specialising in the contemporary use and creation of traditional Maori and Polynesian Tatu.

“We make one off body art keeping alive the language and traditions that are unique to the art form. All our art is custom designed for each person on a consultation basis.

“The language of Ta Moko is used to design a unique piece of body art expressing aspects that relate to the wearer.”
