London: R&B star Rihanna has got a new tattoo on her hand, spread from her fingernails to her forearm, which was inked in the traditional Maori way.

This technique involves using a mallet, chisel and ink pigment to create the design, rather than a needle, reported Digital Spy.

The `Umbrella` hitmaker underwent the painful procedure while on tour in Aukland, New Zealand.

Rihanna, 24, who is known for her love of body art, has got other tattoos including stars down her back and a gun on her side.
