Soon, Rihanna will have no where on a body to tattoo—probably except her teeth…

After her recent tat on her hand, she flew celeb tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy flew from NYC all the way to the Dominican Republic this weekend so that he could draw another big tattoo on her hands, to cover the old one.

And it took 11 hours for for it to be done…

Bang Bang McCurdy says:

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.

According to Bang Bang, this new tat falls on the old one Rihanna recent got made in New Zealand…

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… 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.
