Rihanna hit up East Side Ink at 2 AM this morning to have her own personal motto “Never a failure, always a lesson” tattooed backwards near her right shoulder. That way she can read it in the mirror. Clever.
“I asked her why she wanted that and she said, ‘It’s kind of my motto in life for everything.’ Instead of considering things to be mistakes, considering them lessons.” “She said that she wanted to do it in gray, rather than black, because she wanted it to be more subtle,” explains Bang Bang. “She didn’t want it to draw too much attention.”
Rihanna 喜欢新纹身，她从头到脚全身现在有13处小纹身.她甚至还自己创造了一种纹身图案， 包括在她纹身师手臂上纹着的小雨伞。她和墨水的缘分开始于2006，她纹上最早的音乐符纹身的时候。她最近新纹了镜像字体的纹身，这样她可以在镜子中阅读。纹身的内容是“没有失败， 只有教训”。这个纹身穿过她的右胸上方，用的灰色墨水。她说：“这算是我人生关于任何事物的座右铭。”

这是她的纹身中最鼓舞人的一个，已经被Lindsay Lohan 和Lily Allen模仿了。很多粉丝也决定纹一个和Rihanna一样的。
