Danny Trejo and Rihanna get tattoos together

Tattoo connoisseur and Machete star Danny Trejo was in the same LA ink parlor last night where “We Found Love” singer Rihanna was getting her new tattoos done. The two posed for an funny photo together after he told TMZ that he approves of her new tattoo.

The actor, known for playing the rough anti-hero in movies like Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn and Con Air, was in there to touch up the tattoos of his kids on his back. That’s when he ran into Ri Ri, who was getting the words "Thug Life" tattooed on her knuckles as a tribute to Tupac.


Our favorite Latino tough guy is no stranger to tattoos. He’s well known for having ink all over his body, including a woman wearing a sombrero on his chest that appears in many of his movies, Jesus Christ above his children on his back and his wife Debbie Shreve’s name on his upper chest.

Meanwhile, the songstress has been adding to her ink numbers lately. Besides the new “Thug Life” on her knuckles, she has a few neck tattoos (including a string of stars that matches those of former boyfriend Chris Brown), a skull on the back of her leg, the words “Freedom in God” in Arabic and many others.

Danny approved of Ri Ri’s new tattoo by calling her “one of the downiest female thugs in the world,” according to the TMZ story. But I hope the stars are careful when getting new tattoos so that they don’t end up like Marc Anthony and Eva Longoria, who are busy removing the ink referencing past loves.

What do you think of Rihanna’s new tattoo tribute to Tupac and Danny Trejo’s comments about it?
