Another design to cross off the list: Rihanna shows off her latest tattoo design in true rude girl fashion

By J J Anisiobi

Rihanna is already the proud bearer of 15 tattoos but now the pop star has added a new design to her collection.

The 24-year-old showed off a controversial creation that is likely to split opinion in terms of taste.

The Rude Boy singer has new eye-catching cross tattoo which she had done last night on the Lower East Side, in New York City.

Rihanna went to her good friend and long time tattoo designer Bang Bang for the art work, which coincided with the legendary tattooist opening his new store.

The pictures show the singer posing with a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses and wearing a bandana while she displays some of her other symbols.

Describing the experience, Bang Bang said: 'We did a very fine small cross directly on her collarbone. She said her cross meant a lot to her and she totally loved it!'

The fresh tattoo is still raw and appeared to be coloured red as it sits just below the star's neckline.

This is the 16th design Rihanna has added to her body but it is only the second tattoo that represents any religious links.

In 2007 she had what was believed to be her third tattoo, to her lower back and side.

Rihanna wanted to have a Sanskrit prayer going down her right hip that would say 'Forgiveness, Honesty, Suppression and Control', but unfortunately it was misspelled.

The Bajan-born singer recently revealed that despite all of her artistic etchings, she isn't happy with her current body shape.

She told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on Kiis FM: 'The Five Factor Diet has gone straight out the window ever since I went on tour. I mean, It's difficult to have any kind of routine when your schedule is that crazy.

'So I really have no idea how I'm continuously losing weight,' Rihanna admitted, acknowledging her thin frame.

'It's actually pretty annoying, because now I don't have a butt, and I have no boobs. I already had no boobs to start with. So annoying! and I'm eating everything!'
