Grammy-winning singer Rihanna is not allowing 2Pac critics bring down her high after publicly showing off a "THUG LIFE" tattoo in the late rapper's honor across her knuckles this week and has relished the hype.

Resorting once again to Twitter, RiRi hit fans with a flurry of Pac references and even referred to herself as "RIHpac."

"Err'body has an opinion, but yall know what yall can do with them!!! #THUGLIFE," she tweeted January 25th.
"#DUH shut up b*tch, swallow!! RT @CoCo816: @rihanna lol you're not a thug, stop it."
"I'm thinking I shoulda got a tear drop instead!!! #THUGLIFE maybe next time"
"All eyes on Rih, betta picture me rollin' #THUGLIFE"
"I can't deny it, ima riot..u don't wanna fuck with me! #THUGLIFE haaaaaaa"
"RIHpac back!!!"
"NEVER!!! RT @Fiend4sports: @rihanna Thug Life!! Don't let Pac memory ever die." (Rihanna's Twitter)

The singer showed off her unexpected tattoo this week on Twitter.

Rihanna's tattoo obsession continues. The bad girl added some fresh ink to her body this week. RiRi visited the Shamrock Social Club in Los Angeles, getting "Thug Life" tatted across her knuckles. "All these b*tches screaming that 2pac back ? #THUGLIFE," tweeted the pop star, who already has around 14 tattoos including one with her best friend's birthdate on her shoulder and another on her chest that reads "Never a failure, always a lesson." But that wasn't all. She appeared to be getting another tat on her body from famed tattoo artist Mark Mahoney, while holding a beer bottle. During her trip to the tattoo parlor, she also ran into Grindhouse actor Danny Trejo. (Rap-Up)

RiRi's "THUG LIFE" marks the latest celebrity ink job since former boyfriend Drake recently showed off his Aaliyah-inspired tat.

Drake may have the flimsiest hand in Hip-Hop, yet the rapper keeps a firm grip as he flexes in this new gym shot. The Young Money superstar has been working up a sweat as he prepares to take his 'Club Paradise' tour on the road, sharing his progress with fans on picture platform, Instagram. Kudos on the svelte physique, but those tattoo's (Aaliyah one included). No. (That Grape Juice)

Keeping in line with celebrity adoration, D12's Bizarre flaunted his Nicki Minaj tattoo last month.

"Right now I'm with my man Brooklyn Payne. He does all of my tattoos. He did my portraits. Right now, I'm going to show you my new addition. My new tattoo. Check it out. F*ck yeah! Nicki, this is how much I love you. This is your husband, Bizarre." (YouTube)
