Rihanna Gets Inked Up

Rihanna has kept a low profile but now the sultry songstress is revealing some skin -- and new ink.

The R&B singer showed off the small gun she got tattooed onto her rib cage in a series of photos the tattoo artist recently posted on his myspace page.

The 20-year-old starlet reportedly flew tattoo artist BangBang from New York to Los Angeles so he could outfit her with another one of his specialty designs.

"Ended up doing it on her ribbs [sic]," he wrote in a caption under a photo that shows Rihanna displaying the tat.

The artist said Rihanna flew him to the West Coast for the day and put him up at the Roosevelt hotel.

"She hooked me up!" he wrote. "This hotel is ill!"

The singer already has a cluster of stars tattooed down her back,  a music note on her ankle, a Pisces sign behind her right ear and a tattoo of the word "Shhh..." on her index finger, to name a few.

The singer has remained silent since her beatdown allegedly at the hands of boyfriend Chris Brown on Feb. 8 after the two got into an argument.
