Rihanna got a new tattoo that has some big (possibly romantic) connections to Drake

Rihanna loves her ink. She has music notes tattooed on her right foot, a trail of stars down her back, a tribal sign on her hand, and an Arabic phrase on her back, among several others.

Her latest is a shark tattoo, which she got from Keith McCurdy, aka Bang Bang.

Not only did she get the tattoo in Drake’s dressing room, but many are speculating that the design is based on a cuddly toy Drake and Rihanna cuddled up with after last weekend's VMAs.



While presenting her with the Vanguard Award at last weekend's ceremony, the rapper said he’s loved Rihanna since he was 22, and then there was a super awkward kiss.

However, that night Drake cleared things up that the pair are cool with the post above.

McCurdy talked to Vanity Fair about the significance of the tattoo, and while he couldn’t confirm its meaning, he did say ‘The significance is personal. That’s really all I can say. I’ve seen many people guessing the meaning online, but it’s not my place to share publicly.’

Rihanna also appeared on Drake’s Summer Sixteen tour stop in Miami two nights ago. The two shared a peck on stage followed by an elongated hug that hints at romance.
