Rihanna's Falling Stars

Rihanna seems to be going tattoo crazy lately ... we recently found out that she had a small star tattooed on the top part of her ear and just this week she was spotted making a grand exit from a tattoo shop in NYC (with her rumored beau Chris Brown) showing off some new tattoo work cascading down her back. Here is our first look at Rihanna's new ink that she just got etched onto her back:

If fans were not star struck before they saw pop singer Rihanna, they certainly will be now. The R&B artist revealed her latest tattoo to eagerly awaiting fans in New York, a collection of stars plunging down her back. It took a collection of police and bodyguards to keep fans at bay after the singer visited one of her favourite tattoo parlours. The singer, who has only just turned 20, already has four other tattoos - a music note on her ankle, a Pisces behind her right ear, a star inside her left ear and a Sanskrit prayer going down the hip. She was later seen coming out of the tattoo parlour wearing a green top - perhaps to hide the painful and sore price of her latest fashion accessory. The Umbrella star then went to an evening party, where she was joined by on-off boyfriend Chris Brown. But true to form, the two R&B stars, who have kept any relationship secretive, they made sure they arrived and left at different points of the evening.

This latest bit of tattoo work is, by far, her most ambitious to date but something tells me that she may not stop here. Rihanna seems to have the same love of tattoos that David Beckham has and we know that he is far from finished getting tattoo work done on his body. I don't think that RiRi will go the way of a tattooed arm sleeve but mark my words, she will very probably get more tattoo work done in the future. That being said, I really like the cascading stars down her back. They look nice and it's a very classy-looking tattoo. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. [Source]
