Not just any art though - Rih had two handguns tattoed on her body.

"She loves the gun tattoo," BangBang tells Life & Style.

"She flew me out to LA for the day because she was getting a tattoo for one of her friends as a birthday gift, Bangbang said.

"We were thinking of putting it on her finger next to her wrist, or on her shoulders. She loved that, but it took away from her face, and you know, she's a CoverGirl, so we couldn't do that!"

The tattoo took about 15 minutes to complete.
