The tattoo is just below her breasts and is of the Egyptian Goddess Isis kneeling with her wings spread. While the ‘Umbrella’ singer is topless, she maintains her modesty by holding her arm across her bare chest.

While she got tattooed on Saturday, she revealed the body art on Sunday after it had healed. Rihanna tweeted, “Goddess Isis- Complete Woman - Model for future generations- #GRANGRANDOLLY - always in and on my heart,” as she shared the risqué picture with her followers on her Instagram account. 

The 24-year-old singer's maternal grandmother Clara 'Dolly' Brathwaite died of cancer on July 1, had a special place in the singer’s heart.
