Rihanna Faces Misdemeanor Over Ink

Rihanna could be headed to a Manhattan courtroom over allegations that she tattooed three patrons without a license in New York. The “Umbrella” singer, working on the follow up to 2007s “Good Girl Gone Bad,” allegedly tattooed three willing fans with umbrellas and the letter R at East Side Ink in New York. According to New York based authorities the action, while innocent to the fans who received the tattoos, is illegal. “Only licensed tattoo artists can administer tattoos in the city according to the city’s health code. We are sending someone down to follow up on this”. If convicted, Rihanna could be slapped with misdemeanor charges and up to $1,000 in penalty fees. The tattoo shop, East Side Ink, could also face charges and considerable fines.
