Rihanna’s Debuts New Egyptian Under-Boob Tattoo

We love Rihanna. Whether she’s touching her crotch on stage or cursing people out on Twitter or gracefully accepting a booty-grab from A$AP Rocky she’s always the bad gal we’d like to . . . uh, hangout with. Yesterday she debuted a beautiful (and rather large) tattoo of the ancient Egyptian goddess Isis placed smack dab beneath her bosoms and we think it’s dope. Not because she Instagram-ed a  photo of  herself doing the “arm bra”  but because it’s a nice tribute to her recently deceased grandmother and a nod to ancient African civilization of Kemet (what the people indigenous people of Egypt called their land).

The photos’s caption reads: “Goddess Isis- Complete Woman – Model for future generations- #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart #1love.”

Rihanna is definitely not the first celeb to reference or use ancient Egypt just look at Kanye’s “Horus” chain or the hieroglyphic bird in Drake’s October’s Very Own logo. Even the god Rakim, takes his name from a contraction of the name of ancient Egyptian god Ra and “KM” short for Kemet.

But it doesn’t matter if you’re memorializing your Gran-Gran with ink people will still say that you’re reppin’ a secret society.
