This morning, Bajan musician Rihanna tweeted a photo of her “Thug Life” tattoo. The ink is a clear nod to late rapper Tupac Shakur, who had the same tattoo; however, whereas Skakur’s tattoo was in black ink, Rihanna opted for a more feminine pink.
Rihanna accompanied the photo with a quote from “Tupac Back” by Rick Ross: “All these b*tches screaming that 2Pac back.”
Shakur famously maintained that the acronym “Thug Life” stood for “The hate you give little infants, f*ck everyone.” Rihanna hasn’t indicated whether she’s assigned a similar meaning to her knuckle tattoos.
