The 'Pour It Up' star flew her tattoo artist 1500 miles out to change her newest tattoo design.

Rihanna unveiled her modified hand tattoo during the 'Diamonds' world tour this week, after adapting the original Maori-inspired design.

Over the summer Rihanna had a traditional New Zealand tattoo design painstakingly inked onto her right hand and wrist, but the Bajan star has now changed the design to incorporate Henna elements.

According to Page Six, the 'Pour It Up' star flew a US-based tattoo artist 1500 miles out to the Dominican Republic over the weekend to complete work on the design.

Bang Bang tattoo artist Keith McCurdy was said to have taken 11 hours to complete the newly revamped tattoo design on Rihanna's hand.
