The 'Stay' singer flew two tattoo artists from New York's renowned celebrity parlour Bang Bang, over to Dominican Republic to etch the new design, which took a total of 11 hours.
Rihanna, who got the tattoo completed on Sunday (27 October) during some downtime from her mammoth 'Diamonds World Tour,' first gave fans a glimpse of the new design after posting a black and white photo to Instagram yesterday (30 October).
Keith 'Bang Bang' McCurdy and Cally-Jo Art, who both etched the tattoo, said in an Instagram post: "We each collaborated on the design and the tattooing, inspired by henna art. Thanks Ri for being awesome."
Rihanna's new body art was applied over her pre-existing Maori hand tattoo, which was etched on her hands in Auckland, New Zealand earlier this month.
A before and after shot shows Rihanna's developed design and Cally-Jo explained that she "spent hours drawing on different designs" but "finally found one that worked."
Keith also told E! News: "The inspiration was henna art, we wanted something really decorative, feminine and sexy.
"She had something pre-existing on her hand," Keith continued. "So it was a little bit of a cover up, but also making it look good, wanted to make sure it flowed."
Rihanna, who wore a white hoody for the tattoo session, seemed to be pleased with the final product. Keith added: "Ri flipped out! Absolutely loved it, loved it!"
