RIHANNA Goes HARDCORE with New Tattoo

Rihanna must be a huge Tupac fan … because she just tatted the words THUG LIFE — on her fists!

RiRi hit up an LA tattoo parlor yesterday to get her hardcore ink started … it doesn’t look complete in the photo she tweeted out early this morning. It could be a temporary tat, but still … badass.

Interestingly, the t-shirt she was wearing while she got inked up — John Lennon’s face. Totally thug.

Rihanna also ran into Danny Trejo at the tattoo parlor. Hope she’s not inspired by his massive piece of chest art.
