RIHANNA showed off her artistic skills at East Side Ink tattoo parlour in New York, tattooing three of the artists with umbrellas and the letter ‘R’. Fun, yes, but also incredibly illegal.

TMZ reports none of her pet projects cared that she didn’t have a licence, unlike the New York City Law Department, who have opened an investigation into the incident. If charged, Rihanna could be slapped with three misdemeanours for the offence, and fined upward of $US1000.
