PIC: Rihanna gets a new tattoo – her 16th!

Rihanna has gotten another tattoo, her 16th! The singer posted a picture of her new ink, a falcon on her ankle, on her Instagram page on Saturday. She wrote ”Falcon: a light that shines in the darkness! Never close their eyes during sleep.”

The tattoo was done by her favorite artist, Bang Bang, in NYC.

“[She decided to get it] the night of, but has been thinking about it for years,” Bang Bang, who adds that this tattoo covers up one of her previous tattoos, making it No. 16, tells Us Weekly. “It’s the first tattoo she wanted as a teen. She wanted it across her back back then.”

The Manhattan-based tattoo artist adds that the 24-year-old “Where Have You Been” singer always knows the next step in her body art lineup. “We always do that part together,” Bang Bang tells Us. “We must have gone over hundreds of tattoo ideas together over the years.”

The Barbados beauty’s decision for new ink comes almost 48 hours after her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown and Drake, along with their posses, got into a serious brawl at a Manhattan nightclub early Thursday morning.

Rihanna “got text messages from everybody telling her what happened right after it went down,” a source explained to Us. “She just laughed. She’s spoken to both of them and just thinks it’s crazy. She’s glad she wasn’t there though!”

Meanwhile an observer tells Us of the scuffle, “Chris and Drake never got in each other’s faces. “It was entourage versus entourage, never Drake versus Chris.” (Eva Longoria’s ex-husband, Tony Parker, who was partying with Brown that night, suffered a scratched retina from the brawl.)

Rihanna: Forever Strong
The Barbadian beauty opens up about finding love, having children, and how the incident with Chris Brown was her “liberation”

On her breakup with Chris Brown:
“It gave me guns. I was like, well, fuck. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. […] Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”

On the backlash over their reconciliation:
“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”

On having kids:
“It could be tomorrow. It could be 20 years from now. I just feel like when the time is right, God will send me a little angel. But first, of course, I have to find a man. I mean, there’s a very important missing piece to the puzzle here!”

On finding that man:
“I feel like it’s hard for everybody! I don’t think it has anything to do with being famous. There’s just a major drought out there. […] But I just need to find the person who balances me out, because then things like my schedule won’t matter. I’ve done it before, so I know I can do it again.”
