Face and hand tattoos are among the dumbest decisions a person can make, but when you're Rihanna, and you never have to worry about keeping your hands in your pockets during a job interview or being forced to wear gloves for the entirety of your shift at Best Buy, it's not quite as retarded.
That being said, Rihanna's tattoo is still horrible. Thug life? Really? This chick had a record deal at, like, 17. How much thuggin' has she really accomplished in her life? Oh, and nothing says "gangsta" like that John Lennon t-shirt she's wearing in the picture.
Hopefully, RiRi will wash the magic marker off her hands and let us in on the joke, because if that tat is real, it's her worst decision since she started hanging out with Chris Brown again.
