Who knew that Rihanna was such a big Tupac Shakur fan?

Rihanna unveiled Wednesday a tattoo of one of the slain rapper's most popular sayings across her fists, "THUG LIFE." Tupac actually had the words tattooed on his abdomen.

The "Good Girl Gone Bad" singer made her Twitter announcement with a quote from the chorus of Meek Mill's song "Tupac Back." "All these b*tches screaming that 2pac back," she wrote on her page on the social networking site.

"I #LOVE my new tattoo!!!," she added. "Can't wait for yall to se it!!! I got it in "Tibetan" this time!!!"

Rihanna's shocking new tattoo prompted Thug Life to become a trending topic on Twitter.

In the picture posted on Lockerz, Rihanna shows off the artwork on her knuckles. Her hair is poufy and curly and she's wearing a John Lennon t-shirt. Rihanna also tweeted a picture with gangsta villain actor Danny Trejo, who she saw in the tattoo parlor.

Thug Life is also the name of a rap group formed by Tupac. The members included Tupac's stepbrother Mopreme Shakur, Rated R, Big Syke, and Macadoshis. Their 1994 album, "Thug Life: Volume 1," included the single "Pour Out A Little Liquor." The album was certified gold.
