Rihanna's Gun Tattoo Artist Speaks!

| Filed under: RihannaChris Brown


Do you know what you do when you're young and you have too much money?

You fly your favorite tattoo artist out to tat up your friend, and then you get some dumb tattoos of your own!

According to Life & Style, Rihanna flew artist BangBang out from New York last week.

A "big advocate of guns" (in case the name didn't give it away), BangBang tells the mag he suggested a tattoo of a firearm after RiRi rejected several other sketches.

They toyed with the idea of placing the tattoo on her shoulders but eventually decided against it considering RiRi's Cover Girl status.

So the violent image ended up under her ribs.

BangBang supposed that, considering RiRi's current situation, she selected the gun because "she kicks ass and everybody supports her! She can do whatever she wants. She’s one of the nicest and sweetest people I know. She has a lot of really good friends supporting her. We didn't talk about why she specifically got it. She’s a rock. She's just thinking about having a great time now."

Maybe it's for self defense?

Chris Brown better watch himself!

    Why would someone so pretty SCAR her body.

  2. 2

    Love her…But not so classy!

  3. 3

    She is a stupid classless idiot. Get a hobby. Get some education.
    What a terrible image. What a dumb girl.
    Loves a guy that beat the crap out of her and gets tats of stupid images all over her body. Young impressionable girls of America BEWARE…

  4. 4

    That will real classy when she is wearing an evening gown at age 45.

  5. 5

    I think that's hot.

  6. 6

    who cares i mean come on she have this bad girl thing going n ways

  7. 7

    Horrible tattoo!! A mole would have look better!

  8. 8

    She'll learn to regret that one!

    Aimee Muschamp Michelle Williams Natalie Zea————-my favessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

    What a douchebag…i used to like her but she's such a twat for going back to that loser…they're both idiots!

  10. 10

    Re: barnett1214 – I know, right?! But it seems like she doesn't really care about that. She might think she's a badass now, but I agree. She'll regret this one.

  11. 11

    I really don't even think that's her. Look at her hand…does Rihanna have that huge of a tattoo on her hand? I don't think so.

  12. 12

    even though you dont have it, TMZ has a photo of her from the ront showing tw gun tattoos near both armpits

  13. 13

    so i guess everyone should surf over there and check it out . . .

  14. 14

    Regardless, the 'artist' has done it so small, it's gonna look like complete shit in a year or two anyway.

  15. 15

    ugly as hell

  16. 16

    Ok, there is more wrong with this girl than meets the eye… she has serious issues OTHER than her idiot boyfriend/exboyfriend… not cool at all and not a great role model she is turning out to be. Covergirl should fire her ass for that.

  17. Ava J says – reply to this


    Ugh. She's pathetic. And does this guy really think she wants him telling all her frickin business? You could tell he's a low life.

  18. 18

    All together now…GHETTO!!!

  19. 19

    HA! she thinks shes all HARD….she is sooo stupid….

  20. 20

    Chris Brown would've given her a tattoo for free. Right under her eye.

  21. 21

    Hate to tell this guy, but not EVERYONE supports her…. and all his tattoos did was make her look GHETTO

  22. 22

    we can't stop victims from going back but we can make it easier for victims to come forward. Go to www.rihannaslaw.com and sign the petition that will protect victims from being exploited. Rihannas Law com

  23. 23

    She can get whatever the fuck tatto she wants. Gat a life. This is hardly newsworthy.

  24. pabst says – reply to this


    She didn't even get cool lookin' Colt 45's. GAUCHE!!!

  25. 25

    "Everyone" supports her? Not me. I used to think she was a classy chick, but lately every day she reminds us what a fucked up, tacky bitch she is.

  26. 26

    She doesn't need no damned ink gun for that fucking woman beater, she needs 45 real friends. He'll only hit her once, after that, it's self defense. I just pray she's smart enough to do that and get herself some protection.

  27. 27

    I completely understand why she did it. I got out of an abusive relationship last year and the first thing I did was got a tatoo to show that I am stronger than that and I dont need it. I was a new and better person and finally could be myself again and make my own choices! Its a moving on kind of thing she needed to do. and a gun is a fucking amazing choice!

    Rihanna keep it up please! Don't do all this for nothing!

  28. 28

    Awful decision, Rihanna! You don't fight violence with violence!!! C.B. needs a lot of help but you need help too, girl!!!
    So sad…

  29. 29

    I think it's hot.

  30. 30

    it means that chris brown better watch out…he gonna get blasted on. lol

  31. 31

    specilly Ugly without make up

  32. 32

    why didn't she make HIS name instead of just simple gun?

    fashion blog www.wantandafford.com

  33. 33

    I truly hope both C.B. and Rihanna get the help they need!

  34. 34

    That isn't the kind of gun she should be packin'.

  35. 35

    she looks like shes been crying… issues!!

  36. 36

    I fucking love it….

  37. 37

    this bitch is going off the deep end i swear

  38. 38


  39. 39

    DUMB. I can't stand when people get stupid tattoos and then try to justify them with something that happened in their life. Just admit that you want a tattoo that makes no sense.

  40. 40

    Yucky poo poo tatooo!

  41. 41

    So just because she has a gun tattooed on her it makes her stupid? Or it's a violent tattoo? My husband has a tattoo of two AKs. It's not a violent tattoo & he's not stupid. Just a supporter of the 2nd Amendment (as am I). At least it's not a tattoo of a boyfriend's name…now THAT is stupid…

  42. 42

    She sure paid him good money to say all that

  43. 43

    awful tat- sry…

  44. 44

    This is why Chris Brown will go on to beat more women. The minute they pull Rihanna into court and find out what kind of a dumb ass poser she is, Chris will go free..

    It's wrong to hit a women even if she is a bitch and probably deserved it, it is still wrong… A jury will never see it that way…

    If a woman is promiscuous and is raped, her sexual activity will come into play during a trial as to whether or not she provoked the guy into raping her… It will work the same way with Chris and Rihanna.

  45. 45

    she seems lost with out Chris. Why fake happiness when we all can clearly see she's unhappy without him. She should just stay home and wait until the love for Chris to pass away naturally on its on. Time is the key to healing somewhat.

  46. 46

    Why someone would do that to their body is mind boggling.

  47. 47

    "So the violent image ended up under her ribs."
    Grow some balls Perez, it's just a picture of a gun. It's not like she has a tattoo of someone being shot with it.

  48. 48

    I used to be a fan of her! Fortunately not anymore! She seems a little bit lost and confuse….Wishing her all the best in life..

  49. 49

    Re: popculturelover

    where have you been lol that is her and her hand. which btw is the second matching tattoo that she got with Mr. Brown

  50. 50

    Poor self-esteem…

  51. 51

    Re: bluephoenix

    oh ok so you're both stupid lmao

  52. 52

    im not at all a rihanna fan, but the tat is kinda cute.

  53. 53

    go to wwtdd(dot)com to see the TWO other guns on her shoulder/chest area - I'm a fan of tats, and have some…but those look horrible, and are going to turn into black blobs in about 10 years…

  54. 54

    What else would you expect from talentless, ghetto trash.

  55. 55

    "one of the nicest and sweetest people I know" but she "kicks ass?" Wait a minute… "everybody supports her!?"
    Everyone DID support her until she pulled the stupidest move every and went back to a man who beat her bloody.
    Now she's just showing what a fugly, ghetto, retard skank she is. The people around her are shielding her from reality. She need a little MORE CLASS, not less class.
    I bet this tatoo artist BangBang has a very nice grill. Trash!!
    She makes me SICK!!

  56. 56

    Re: bluephoenix – I support the 2nd Amendment, but I don't get guns tattooed on my body… or even own a gun. Getting something permentantly displayed on your body means that it has some significance to you. I would imagine your man hunts or was in the service. Otherwise, yes he is stupid.

  57. 57

    Are you sure that photo is Rihanna and not some crack whore?

  58. Wrenn says – reply to this


    Real Classy!

  59. 59

    Worst tattoo ever!

  60. 29 says – reply to this


    a badass, huh? more like a DUMBASS!

  61. 61

    Ok, this girl is DUMB!!
    She gets back with a beater and then a tat of a fuckin gun. GOBSHITE!!

  62. 62

    How the crap does a GUN SYMBOLIZE ANY of that?!??!?!?
    guns aren't nice and sweet. wtf?!?!

  63. 63

    She kicks ass? Dude - not from the picture I saw.

  64. 64

    She is freaking gross. What does he mean everyone supports her? Who is everyone? I look forward to reading about her next beat down the stupid b!tch

  65. 65

    Re: popculturelover – yah thats rihanna. she got that tat on her hand pretty recently.whats really fucking sad is that chris brown actually has the same one on his hand too. just plain idiots

  66. 66

    Britney wishes Rihanna a Merry X-mas, and wishes that she stop being so rebellious, because Britney understands that rebellion can ruin the things that are the most important to you, your friends, family, and career. Britney wishes that Rihanna wouldn't take these things for-granted, because once you've pushed everything and everyone away their is no point in living anymore and you become a robot in a human body.

  67. 67

    "She kicks ass": Really? I thought she was the one getting her ass kicked…
    Everybody supports her: Say that again?? As far as I read ppl are sick of her and her stupidity…
    "She can do whatever she wants": As long as CB is ok with it… if not we all know what can happen…
    "She’s one of the nicest and sweetest people I know": Dude, get new friends… there's nothing sweet and nice about her, she is just a disturbed person
    "She’s a rock. She's just thinking about having a great time now." : Really? I thought she was just trying to get her man back after all it's all that matter to her… I'm sure the "rock" is having a blast getting beat up by CB…

  68. 68

    Im losing sympathy for her more and more as time goes on. As bad as it sounds, I do believe she provoked Chris

  69. 69

    It's funny though how she is sooo naive to think that she will still be associated with Covergirl… that just speaks for itself… she is a TWAT… she thinks she still has a career to come back, people who love her even though she is a crazy bitch and be a spokesperson for other woman around her age on national tv… lol… all of that is OVER BITCH!

  70. 70

    so wait one post she is stupid for doing it? And now that the artist speaks you are (with tail between legs) "maybe its for self-defense". you are a fucking twat. you should have the shit kicked out of you.

  71. 71

    RiRi should carry a real gun and use it on thugs like CB. HOLLA!!!

  72. Beej says – reply to this


    When will fucking women learn they're naturally superior to men without getting these ridiculously trashy tattoos? And really, of all the stupid shit to tattoo yourself with — Taz, Tweety, Eeyore, etc. — why the fuck would you choose a tiny pistol and stamp it under your armpits? It's not cute. It's not sexy. You look like a poster child for a troubled person crying out for attention.

  73. 73

    Re: Billflynn – It amazes me that after all of this someone will still believe that she is a victim… so far from the truth!

  74. 74

    that is the worst tattoo ever
    and goes to prove that she and chris will get back together,
    she must love the idea of violence and living in a volatile relationship probably suits her.
    she is a loser .

  75. 75

    Re: carolineyy – if you READ the tmz article it says those are sketches and she decided not to get them there due to her covergirl contract. trashy tho, either way. i used to like her but she is just a spoiled, airheaded pop star like the rest. kgbmommalove[/re] i agree, GET AN EDUCATION, youre sooo yoouuunngggg damn

  76. 76

    "he selected the gun because "she kicks ass and everybody supports her! She can do whatever she wants."

    - No, she can't. Her boyfriend beat her down and she stays with him? No she can't do that and everybody supports her!
    She should have split up with him, get an no-contact order ("Miss Fenty [Rihanna] does not request such an order") and get him in prison for beating her (instead of don't want to speak in court if asked to testify).
    But no. Hide some days, stay with him and now get a gun on your skin. Way better.
    No support again for her, thats my opinion!!

  77. 77

    whatever let her ruin herself. she is obvz one of those tattoos addicts that cant stop. i am a firm believer that a womans body is a work of art in and of itself. my boyfriend has normal tattoos like his bull symbolizing that he is a taurus (god help me, i love the stubborn bull lol) but i will probably never get a tattoo. why? because im happy with my body with no ink on it, and when she's putting on evening gowns in 10 years she will regret most of them. c'est la vie tho

  78. 78

    Why didn't she have it put on the side of her face , so her dickhead boyfriend would get shot the next time he slaps her!

  79. 79

    Let Us all worry if Rhianna can get another tattoo…..oh poor lil rich girl…with her nasty temper…didn't like her before Chris Brown ( she ain't no princess) and don't like her now….I wish we could stop talking abt her so she can go back to being Jay Z's bitch!

  80. 80

    Awesome tattoo!

  81. 81

    she kicks ass?? no…she gets her ass kicked! what a dumbass, great role model!

  82. 82

    you know I knew it wouldn't be long before she started to show her real or true colors. I remember when Britney was having a really tough time and Perez kept baggin on her and he kept comparing her and Rhi and kept saying what a wonderful artist/celeb Rhi was and how she had class and so on……….well that didn't take very long did it??? It is alway just a matter of time before shit happens that show how these people really are. She is no better than anyone else. She is doing classless crap and making an ass out of herself now and it wont make a bit of difference what anyone else says or thinks she is going to do whatever she wants anyway. She has to know that being with CB isn't good for her and that a lot of people are sincerely dissapointed in her choice to keep seeing him but she is going to make her own choices and she obviously doesn't care what people think.

  83. 83

    In a way it is a direct way for her to say "you can all screw yourselves cuz I am gonna do what I wanna do and nothing any of you say or do matters". Fine, but when you are a public figure or a celebrity that make a living off of being in the public eye, it will hurt her or her image no matter what because she has young kids looking up to her. Wether she likes it or not, its part of the package and part of what she makes big $$$$$$ off of. So she can just deal with the backlash or the negative press that she gets as well. Shes making enough money off of people to accept what they have to say about it, their paying her damit and they have a right to their opinion.

  84. 84

    I feel bad that she was a victim of domestic violence, but taking him back…umm no…maybe did more damage than thought at first. maybe she needs a brain scan…im just sayin

  85. 85

    I cant stand Ri Ri. I dont even know why she is famous. She cant sang or dance.

  86. 86

    She is sensitive, probably sweet as a dove when she is happy. But with a compound of wealth, status amongst her peers, poor self-esteem and reassurance from fans, I don't see why she would think she needs to change.?

    She appears to be ignoring her own feelings. I bet she hates being alone. It's almost like a disorder of some kind.

    Robyn is a bad-ass and is trying to prove us all wrong, hence the tattoo. But a GuUN? Idiot gal dat! There is nothing positive about a firearm or sexy, but that's just my opinion.

    RiRi is like Brit Brit now, but Gheh to the heh toE! I am trying to feel for her though. But to associate power with a weapon that kills bodies? Like, I get the whole power/strength thingy but come on the most powerful thing that she can use right now is your inner voice.

    She "foo-fool" a gun is only good if loaded. So now RiRi and Bush have something more in common, both wasted US cash on guns. (sorry bad joke lol)

    If she would only study philosophy, history and math!
    Rihanna how many times do you let a man beat you?

    Oh ya the positive she still looks good…nice outfit…cool hair! Wow…great song, you dance whell, I want your lipstick!

  87. 87


  88. 88

    "She kicks ass"???? No buddy you've got it backwards, she gets HER ass kicked and then goes back for more. She's a fucking moron. I don't feel sorry for women who get beat up and then go back for more.

  89. 89

    Re: bluephoenix – Any tattoo of an object that is specifically designed to kill people IS a violent tattoo… having a tattoo of this promotes violence - so you, and your husband are stupid too!

  90. 90

    [re=3599819]Re: bluephoenix – If he is using being a hunter, or the service as an excuse, then he is doubly stupid.

    Re: Irrumatio – AMEN

  93. midi says – reply to this


    she's hurting.

  94. 94

    She is becoming dumber and dumber daily. That beating must have jarred her brain or something. For such a beautiful woman she defaced her body with some jail house looking crap. Im all for having tatoos but come on Ri Ri have some fucking class. Oh I forgot you think Chris Brown is a good boyfriend. LOSER

  95. 95


  96. 96

    I really wouldn't put GUNS on my body, I'd hate to give Chris ideas.

  97. 97


  98. 98

    she kicks ass??… or she likes her ass to be kicked? lol ! get it right perez!

  99. 99

    She wasn't kicking ass the night she was pummeled.

  100. 100

    Hate that it's pointed at her b**b. Seriously? Bad image for others to have to consider. And if her words are "I'm strong enough" in response. Well, guess what? Others are not nor do they have the privilege. Councilling sounds right for her by now, as does growing up. She's a public figure and flaunts too much. Daring is not Rihanna anymore, nor cutting edge. Rihanna should time out, mature and leave her latest influentials out in the process. Bad, bad game.
