Rihanna is currently in New Zealand, where she has three tour stops, and while she’s there she decided to add to her extensive tattoo collection!

The singer got a traditional Maori tattoo on her right hand, and it wasn’t easy. Modern tattoos are done with an electric needle machine, but the Maori tattoos are done with a chisel, ink pigment and a mallet.

There is a video of Rihanna getting the new tattoo, which consists of lines and symbols from her fingernails down to the middle of her forearm.

A description for the studio on the Moko Ink website reads: “Moko Ink is the worlds first Maori Tattoo Studio specialising in the contemporary use and creation of traditional Maori and Polynesian Tatu. We make one off body art keeping alive the language and traditions that are unique to the art form. All our art is custom designed for each person on a consultation basis. The language of Ta Moko is used to design a unique piece of body art expressing aspects that relate to the wearer.”

Rihanna, 25, keeps it together for most of the time, but towards the end she starts showing signs of pain.

The video makes me cringe! I can’t imagine – it looks so painful!

Believe it or not, Kristen Stewart gets her first tattoo!

Kristen Stewart has gotten her first tattoo! Believe it or not, the Twilight actress has remained ink-free until now!

Kristen stopped by the Pride & Glory Tattoo parlor over the weekend with a group of friends, and they all got tattoos.

Kristen’s tattoo is on her wrist, and is very small. In pictures posted on Twitter and Instagram, you can see her trying to show it off, but it’s too small to see.

Apparently the tattoo parlor isn’t spilling their guts, either. She asked them “to keep it hush hush.”

The actress is currently traveling around the South, making stops like Hooters in Texas. A source told E! News: ‘She was trying not to be noticed, so she sat with her back to the restaurant. When she was eating, a guy asked her if she was Kristen Stewart.

‘She said, “Yes.” When the guy asked her if he could take a photo, she asked if she could take it after her meal.

‘She was really nice, she smiled and said bye before she left,’ the source concluded. More »


‘Game of Thrones’ star Lena Headley shows off her tattoo collection in Esquire Magazine!

You’d never know by watching her play the villainous blonde Cersei Lannister on ‘Game of Thrones’ that actress Lena Headey has a thing for tattoos!

The 39-year-old posed for Esquire’s April issue, and we’re getting a better look at what the natural brunette is all about! The actress reveals a love for tattoos. “It’s funny how tattoos seem to scare people. There’s something about it that I love. I find it calming. At the end of the day, you’re just decorating skin. I hate seeing myself covered up.”

In a show that’s as sexually charged as ‘Game of Thrones,’ how does the actress hide all her tattoos? “You can usually get away with it by keeping your clothes on,” she says.

In the mag, Lena opens up about playing Cersei … and what her future holds. “All I know is my character isn’t dead yet,” she jokes. “And that’s great, but I don’t take anything for granted. I’m sort of like a T-Rex in the world of female actresses. Every time a job is finished, I look at my car and think, ‘Could I live in it?’”

Though most actors would likely love the break after shooting the third season of a successful show, Headey considers herself unemployed. When asked what she’ll do upon returning to Los Angeles, where she’s lived for six years, she says, “I’m going home to beg for work.”

She is incredibly beautiful, isn’t she?
