London: Rihanna has added yet another tattoo to her already existing collection by getting an Egyptian falcon inked in the shape of a handgun.
The 24-year-old singer sports it just above her right ankle.
“Falcon: a light that shines in the darkness! Never close their eyes during sleep,” the Daily Mail quoted the pop singer as writing on Twitter.
The Barbadian singer had gone to her regular tattoo artist, ‘Bang Bang’, on the Lower East Side on Saturday for her latest black-and-white artwork.
The image is rumoured to mark her 17th tattoo - her second in the shape of a handgun.
The hip hop artist also has a pistol on her thigh, a tiny cross on her collar bone, a music note on her ankle, a Pisces sign behind her right ear and the word ‘love’ on her left middle finger.
A trail of stars is also emblazoned on the back of the singer’s neck, alongside the French saying ‘Rebelle Fleur’ - which means rebellious flower.
In a photograph that she took, she posed on a couch at Bang Bang Tattoos and was dressed down in rugged denim and a baggy black top, her hair pulled back into a messy bun revealing her partially shaved head underneath.
The star had cuffed her jeans to reveal the fresh ink, still red from the needle.
She had shielded her eyes with oversized sunglasses and added a pop of colour to her look with yellow nails.
