Rihanna’s Tramp Stamps – Meet the Tattooist

Rihanna loves her tattoos. She regularly gets new tramp stamps, although to date she has kept them pretty tasteful.

So far she has a treble clef and a 16th note on her right foot, a star which is inside her left ear, a symbol of friendship behind her right ear, a cluster of stars on the back of her neck and the sshh written on the inside of her index finger. She also has a sanskrit writing down her side, which you can see on the cover of her album.

On her recent tour of Australia and New Zealand, her and Chris Brown picked up matching New Zealand tribal tattoos.

Ever wondered who her tattooist was? Wonder no more, he is a 23 year old guy who calls himself BangBang. Bangbang is the guy shown in the photograph above with Rhianna showing off her sanskrit tat.

If you are interested in BangBang’s work on Rihanna you can see more on his Myspace page. Photos page 5 will take you to the Rhianna pics.

So what I want to know is, are they a statement of individualism or are they known as tramp stamps for a reason?
