Rihanna turns tattooist

Rihanna is involved with the police again – but this time it seems she’s on the wrong side of the law. Police are investigating a NYC tattoo parlour after reports that Rihanna played tattoo artist for the night. According to the owners, the ‘Umbrella’ singer showed up recently to hang out with her regular tattooist ‘Bang Bang’. He decided that he wanted a tattoo done by Rihanna, so a simple umbrella design was made and transferred onto his leg, with Rihanna grabbing the tattoo gun to etch the design permanently in ink. Two other tattooists were similarly inked by the sexy singer. The parlour’s co-owner says, “We were all talking a laughing the whole time, joking that she was a pro now… She was so sweet, easy-going, down to earth.” But in the state of New York, only licensed operators are legally able to apply tattoos, hence the police interest.
