The 'Stay' singer posted a message to her friend Cara to congratulate her on getting her first tattoo.

Rihanna has given her approval to supermodel Cara Delevinge's new lion tattoo, after the Burberry star unveiled her first body art this week on Twitter.

The 'We Found Love' star posted on Twitter to say how much she liked good friend Cara's first ink design, as well as praising celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang for his work.

"My lover @CaraDelevingne just came over and got tagged for the first time!!" Rihanna tweeted this week. "Only by the best @bangbangnyc #Zodiackilla."

Cara is believed to have had the tattoo done during her stay in New York City this month, where she was also seen partying with her friend and fellow tattoo lover Rita Ora, who herself got a new Bang Bang tattoo design done last week.

"My first tattoo!! Lions rule! Thank you so much @BangBang," Cara tweeted alongside a snap of her new body art. "I am so happy! Thanks again @BangBang @elemags! RAWWW!"
