Did Rihanna Just Confirm Her Relationship With Drake Via A New Tattoo?

The camouflage shark she just got on her ankle has more significance than you might think.

Drake and Rihanna: are they or aren't they? Ever since Drake's ultra-sappy VMA speech and the date nights and PDA that followed, it's become clear that Drake and Rih are definitely on again.

The latest shred of AubRih evidence is a pretty permanent show of affection: a tattoo. Celeb tattoo artist Bang Bang did the honors, tattooing a camouflage shark on Rihanna's ankle, E! News reports. He shared a photo on Insta of his work yesterday, and it wasn't long before the internet put two and two together.

In case you still don't get the connection, let me break it down for you. Remember that aquarium date Drake and Rih went on a while back? And then that ultra sappy Instagram photo Drake posted a little while later? Well, if you look a little closer, it's clear that there's a stuffed camouflage shark at the edge of the frame, meaning the photo was taken during their date, meaning Rihanna's new ink is a reference to what was apparently a pretty special night for them.


If that doesn't make it official, I don't know what does. Sure, they could just post a sappy Instagram announcement or change their Facebook relationship statuses like the rest of us, but where's the fun in that? Mysterious tattoos with secret meanings are where it's at.
