PIC: Rihanna gets a huge tattoo in honor of her late grandmother

Rihanna has  a huge new tattoo!

The singer, 24, got a new tattoo over the weekend in honor of her beloved grandmother Dolly, who passed away in June.

Rihanna shared a topless photo of her new tattoo, a feathererd Egyptian goddess named Isis, inked on the top of her ribcage. “Goddess Isis – Complete Woman” Rihanna tweeted. “Model for future generations – #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart #1love.”

In London on Sunday, she wowed tens of thousands of fans as she sang “Princess of China” with Coldplay in a seriously steamy performance with frontman (and Gwyneth Paltrow’s husband) Chris Martin. At the VMAs in Los Angeles three days earlier, it was her off-stage behavior that caused the most comment: Winning the Video of the Year award for “We Found Love,” she hugged and kissed — on the lips — her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The chart-topper may or may not have been alluding to her former beau, 23, and their surprising VMAs PDA via Twitter on Saturday with a series of messages. “Heartbreak . . .” she wrote. “I was his Marilyn Monroe . . . A James Dean on the low. What’s love without tragedy?”

What do you think about her new tattoo? I kind of love it. I’ve been dyyyyyyyyyying for a new tattoo lately. Trouble is, I can’t think of anything I want. I would love to come up with something of meaning, but I’m at a loss. Probably means I won’t actually get a new tattoo, but I’ve been feeling the urge lately. Wish there was something meaningful to me that would translate well into a tattoo. I’m not a huge fan of initials – or birth signs – or whatever. I’d love to get something cool, but coming up with the right thing is tricky!

What are your tattoos? What’s the meaning behind them?
