While I’m in town this week with my boyfriend, A $ AP Rocky, photographers took photos and filmed the new couple on a date in New York City. In these photos, the shark tattoo Rih got around September 2016 was covered in a crown. Shortly after Rihanna got the tattoo done, Drizzy appeared with a very similar model, sparking speculation about their corresponding artwork.
According to a 2016 report in Vanity Fair, the artwork was symbolic of a stuffed animal shark that Drake allegedly gave Rih around this time when they had a meeting at the Toronto Aquarium.
Keith McCurdy, also known as Bang Bang, the artist responsible for the ink, said VF on the tatt almost five years ago. He said: “The meaning is personal. That’s really all I can say. I’ve seen a lot of people guess the meaning online, but it’s not for me to share it publicly. I have done many tattoos for Rihanna and this one was my favorite! “
DuckThe version of the tattoo is on his arm.
News of Rih’s new tattoo cover-up comes hours after video footage began circulating online of singer and A $ AP Rocky denied entry to NYC bar without showing bouncer ID.
Even if Rihanna and Rocky are clearly official now, rumors of their romance hit the internet in January of last year.
