Our girl Rihanna is bringing TuPac back with new pink tattoos on her knuckles (Although we originally weren’t sure if this was for real, Danny Trejo, who was also there and took a pic with her, below, confirmed to TMZ that she got the tats. He was there to get touch-ups on tattoos of his children on his back, and said that Rihanna repeated “Thug Life” constantly during the process.)
She’s been tweetin’ a lot with the hashtag #THUGLIFE, and yesterday she posted the photo above herself at Mark Mahoney’s tattoo parlor with this tweet:
♫ All these bitches screaming that 2pac back ♫ #THUGLIFE
Rapper Tupac Shakur, who on September 7, 1996 was gunned down in Vegas, had “Thug Life” tattooed on his abdomen.
Rihanna also posted a photo of her getting something tattooed on her back, but the only hint she offered didn’t quite make sense, unless she was gettin a girl’s named tattooed her, and wanted the same in return: “Tat my f**kin name on u girl so I know its real!!!”
Mark Mahoney is a favorite tattoo artist of Britney Spears, Brad Pitt, and other A-list stars, and Ri-Ri ran into Machete star Danny Trejo was also there.

Rihanna’s been pretty avid on Twitter this month, updating her fans about what she’s doing, including a particular Tweet that the media really ate up: “Kush rolled, glass full…I prefer the better things!” This was followed by paparazzi photos of Rihanna smoking what looked like marijuana, so it’s pretty safe to say that Rihanna smokes pot. Somebody page Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson!
Ri-Ri’s latest album Talk That Talk got rave reviews, and is really effing addictive.
