Rihanna had the tat inked at world-renowned tattoo parlour Frith Street Tattoo in London’s Soho, over the weekend.

The tattoo of the goddess Isis, who, according to the religion of Ancient Egypt, symbolised the perfect mother and wife.

Rihanna’s tattoo appears to be an adaptation of a wall painting discovered in the tomb of Seti I in the Valley of the Kings, from around 1360 BC.

The Only Girl singer posted the picture on Instagram after her performance at last night’s Paralympics Closing Ceremony, where she performed alongside Coldplay and Jay Z.
