The 'We Found Love' star unveils her new inkings on Twitter.

Rihanna has revealed that she has got a new tattoo.

The 'We Found Love' star posted pictures of herself being inked on her Twitter account early this morning (25th January).

In one picture, RiRi can be seen lying on the tattoo table as the artist gets to work, while another shows her holding her fists, which have "Thug Life" written on them, to the camera.

Although it is not clear whether the words have been permanently inked on the star's fingers, Rihanna said the message was a tribute to Tupac.

"All these b***hes screaming that 2pac back," she wrote.

The "Thug Life" slogan was famously associated with the 'Changes' rapper, who was shot dead in the 1990s, and he also had it tattooed on his torso.


Rihanna, who already has a number of tattoos, has yet to post a picture of the finished tattoo.

Meanwhile, the star announced recently that her next single will be the Jay-Z-featuring title track from her latest album 'Talk That Talk'.
