Rihanna’s tattoo spellings beaten

Not by Chris Brown, but by translators. It turns out Rihanna’s hip tattoo (left) is not an accurate writing of Hindu Sanskrit, according to The Sun: “An Aussie expert on an education website says the first part is supposed to mean “forgiveness, honesty, suppression and control” and is from Gita, a holy Hindu Sanskrit scripture, but says it is incorrectly written.”

Her neck tattoo is also incorrect, according to Popeater: “In French, adjectives typically follow the nouns they modify. To translate as “rebel flower,” which we assume is what she intended, that tattoo should read “fleur rebelle.”
