After sporting the telltale clingfilm on her ribcage last week, Rihanna has finally tweeted a photo of her new tattoo.

The elaborate design depicts the Egyptian goddess Isis and is in honour of her late grandmother, who passed away in July.

The 'We Found Love' singer, who is currently in London after performing at the Paralympic Closing Ceremony last night, tweeted the first photo of her 18th tattoo with the message:

"Goddess Isis - Complete Woman - Model for future generations- #GRANGRANDOLLY - always in and on my heart #1lo"
