Rihanna reveals she wanted to get a tattoo on her face

Rihanna said she was advised not to have a tattoo on her face

Rihanna has revealed she loves body art so much she pleaded with a tattoo artist to ink her face.

The Talk That Talk singer - who is to thought to have 18 tattoos in total - said she begged the artist to add one to her face but he refused.

Rihanna told America's GQ magazine: "The tattoo artist said, 'Nope, I'm not gonna do it. Because if you're looking at your face, it's right there staring at you'."

She also told the mag: "Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product. I look at me and see art."

The singer already has plenty of etchings, including a Sanskrit prayer on her hip and a gun under her arm.

Earlier this year she announced she had a new inking done in honour of her grandmother, following her death from cancer. Rihanna showed off the tattoo of the Egyptian goddess Isis underneath her breasts in a photo posted on her Twitter page.
