She has also decided to get tattoos in various parts of her body. They all have meaning for her though.

Rihanna has a small cross tattoo on her neck. It was designed that way so she can easily cover it with a necklace. It was ink mixed with water for lighter effect.
Rihanna’s Queen Nefertiti tattoo is rarely seen due to its position. She is a symbol of beauty and perhaps it was Rihanna’s reason for getting her face on her body.
