Los Angeles: R&B star Rihanna has added to her collection of body art a small cross on her collarbone.

The 24-year-old 'Umbrella' hitmaker went to her favorite tattoo artist Bang Bang to get inked, as reported.

"We cut the color with water, so it'll end up being light - like the 'rebelle' tattoo on her neck. Rihanna's decision to have it on her collarbone is so that it could be in plain sight but could be hidden with a necklace as well," Bang Bang said.

"She loved it. She always flips out when it's done and jumps up and down like a 16-year-old girl getting her first car," he added.

Bang Bang has done 12 other inks for Rihanna including the 'Shhh' tattoo on her finger.

It was only late January that Rihanna had a tattoo. She got the words 'Thug Life' tattooed on her knuckles.
