She is woman, hear her roar!
The singer—who has famously chronicled her head-to-toe ink—took Cara to New York City artist Bang Bang. He has done most of the pop star's tattoos, not to mention provided ink for celebs such as Chris Brown and Justin Bieber.
Apparently the super model was more than OK with her decision because she tweeted: "My first tattoo! Lions rule!" She quickly followed up with: "I am so happy! Thanks again."
Rihanna also joined in on the fun, sharing a picture of Cara's new wild-cat adorned fist on Instagram with the caption: "My lover @caradelevingne just came over and got tagged for the first time!! Only by the best @bangbangnyc."
We wouldn't be surprised if watching her BFF get fresh ink has Rihanna itching for yet another tattoo very soon.
