Rihanna's fascination with tattoos is no secret. Rihanna visited the studio around midnight and was there for 5 hours. The star wore an edgy black jacket, smart white blouse and an eclectic choice of arm candy, a number of rings, and long sparkly nails. First she had to make up her mind on placement. Where would she add the new ink? Once she decided on her inner wrist, she took her time looking at possible designs. She made a selection and visited the chair one more time for several hours. She left the shop around 5:00 a.m.
