Rihanna Got A Henna-Inspired Tattoo All Over Her Hand

  • Rihanna got a henna-inspired tattoo all over her hand and wrist this weekend in a grueling 11-hour tat session with artist Bang Bang McCurdy. However, as The Gloss notes, some South Asian bloggers have criticized non-Indians for getting henna tattoos as cultural appropriation. Generally, I would be inclined to agree with them, although I think something as permanent as a tattoo is more of a “tribute” than a temporary appropriation.   I would be curious to read in the comments what any Indian readers of The Frisky think.

  • Pink sounded off on Twitter after she was bashed for letting her two-year-old ride a motorbike with husband Carey Hart. I don’t see what the big deal is.  Is it extremely safe? No, but neither is speeding on the highway.  I’m sure a professional motorbike rider like Hart is an excellent driver, especially with such precious cargo. [People]
