PICS: Rihanna Gets New Henna Inspired Tattoo On Top of Maori Tattoo

Rihanna recently got a painfu  traditional Maori tattoo while in New Zealand earlier this month on her right hand.

This past Sunday, with the help of her trusted tattoo artist Keith "Bang Bang" McCurdy of NYC, she added more ink to her mallet and chisel done tattoo.

Over a span of 11 hours in the Dominican Republic McCurdy along with another artist added the henna inspired tattoo.

"We drew on her hand from 7 p.m. to midnight. We were drawing and changing things. I'd take a break and Cally-Jo would draw, then I'd draw...The inspiration was henna art, we wanted something really decorative, feminine and sexy. We thought that was the closest in style where we could shift and make it look decorative.
She had something preexisting on her hand. So it was a little bit of a cover up, but also making it look good, wanted to make sure it flowed. We needed to work with what she already had," and added, that it was "difficult, because the stuff she already had was a pattern on skin. We were trying to fit the body with what she already had. Mend the two styles with a new style.

Her hand is not something you can put away. We went over and over. It was a struggle to design. She even took a nap when we were drawing. We started over, until we found the direction she liked." - Bang Bang 

What do we think of Rihanna's addition to her already tattooed hand?
