London, June 20 (ANI): Rihanna's tattoo artist Bang Bang has revealed that he etched the bird just above her right foot recently after she had asked him to cover up a previous tattoo with an image of Egyptian queen Cleopatra.
He told HollyScoop.com that he and his famous client had discussed the idea for close to an hour before he suggested the Egyptian hieroglyphic image of the falcon - and the singer loved the idea.
She was very happy that night, the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
The 24-year-old singer tweeted the first shots of the new tattoo on Saturday as she wrapped up a weekend with family and friends before boarding a flight to London, where she will be spending the rest of the summer.
Falcon: a light that always shines in the darkness! Never close their eyes during sleep, she wrote on Twitter.
Bang Bang said that he has had a long-standing relationship with Rihanna.
She came into the shop to get her nipple pierced and from there we became friends and I have done the majority of her tattoos, he added. (ANI)
