A new hairstyle isn't the only change Rihanna has made to her look in recent months. She recently showed off her edgy side when she opted for a new tattoo, sparking speculation in the process that the inking is a tribute to boyfriend Drake.

Fans speculated that her latest tattoo is a tribute to boyfriend Drake

The design closely resembles a stuffed toy shark which Rihanna was spotted carrying after she enjoyed a night out with the Hotline Bling rapper at Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto, with many believing the toy was a gift from the rapper.

To create the striking artwork, which is placed on her left ankle, Rihanna turned to celebrity tattooist Bang Bang. The New York-based artist gave his Instagram followers a first glimpse of her tattoo, sharing a black-and-white photo of the Umbrella hitmaker's ankles, as she proudly showed off her new inking in a pair of lace-up shoes.

The reports were further fuelled when Drake himself was spotted sporting a matching shark tattoo during a concert, with eagle-eyed fans spotting the small inking on the inside of his arm.
