Rihanna’s first tattoo is two music notes on the inside of her right foot. The notes are a treble clef and sixteenth note. It is believed she got this tattoo done some time in 2006, and was inspired by her music career, as she was just starting out in the music industry at the time.

Jasmine Villegas has a huge tattoo covering her right side. It has seen many iterations and been worked on by multiple artists. She initially started with a cluster of music notes which together formed a harmony. In October 2012 artist MeNaCe added a large ribbon banner weaving through the notes, but Jasmine wasn’t happy with it.
“I didn’t really like the scroll too much, how it made my side look,” she explained in an interview. “So to cover something big you kinda gotta go a little bigger! So I put big colorful roses on my side.” Artist Romeo Lacoste added the flowers. Rather than totally covering the music notes and scroll, he incorporated them into the final design and filled in the ribbon with purple ink.
After all of the alternations Jasmine tweeted “Not gonna lie…I wish I would’ve thought my side tattoo through more. dad you were right !! #dadsknowbest”
