And in the glamorous snap we see Rihanna’s usually hidden tattoo displayed across her chest, just under her bra.

The tattoo displays a winged woman kneeling down and looking over her shoulder – but what exactly does it mean?

Well, the woman is actually Egyptian Goddess Isis; this goddess was worshiped as the ideal mother and wife and Rihanna got the tattoo as a memorial to her beloved grandmother, Dolly.

Rihanna’s grandmother passed away in July 2012 after a battle with cancer, but sharing a tribute to her at the time the pop star wrote: "Goddess Isis – Complete Woman – Model for future generations – #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart #1love."

Posting a look at the tattoo for the first time some years ago, Rihanna hid her modesty with her arm while showing off the large image of Isis kneeling with wings spread across Rihanna’s body.

It is believed that the star had the ink done at a tattoo parlour in Soho.

As well as this, Rihanna has several other tattoos on different parts of her body, including stars which run all the way down her neck.

Completed by celebrity favourite tattoo parlour Bang Bang, the statement tatt begins with a few tiny stars and as they work their way up her back they become bigger in size.

From the same tattoo artist the star also has a Gothic-style ‘1988’ tattoo to mark the year she was born on her ankle, as well as a cross design on her wrist.

The wrist tattoo saw Rihanna entering Bang Bang studio at midnight and exiting at five in the morning showing off her tattoo, which is an elaborate cross which symbolises her faith.

The star has a henna-style tattoo on her hand too, which runs up her arm and her tattoo artist flew out to the Dominican Republic to do the Maori tattoo for the star.

Rihanna’s other tattoo is a shark which sits on her ankle and is reportedly a nod to a shark Drake got Rihanna during a date at an aquarium in Toronto.
