Turns out Rihanna’s hip tattoo by artist BangBang (above) is not an accurate writing of Hindu Sanskrit, according to The Sun:
An Aussie expert on an education website says the first part means “forgiveness, honesty, suppression and control” and is from Gita, a holy Hindu Sanskrit scripture, but says it is “incorrectly written”.
Wait. You mean this BangBang fellow isn’t thoroughly versed in ancient texts? Get the fuck out. Now who’s going to help me find the holy grail?
