"Goddess Isis- Complete Woman - Model for future generations- #GRANGRANDOLLY - always in and on my heart #1love," she tweeted.

Ri-Ri's body art shows Isis, with her throne-shaped headdress, bent down on one knee with her wings spread out under the singer's breasts. Isis is the ancient Egyptian goddess of rebirth and is one of the most common images of empowered femininity.

Less than three months ago, Rihanna lost her grandmother, Ciara "Dolly" Brathwaite, to cancer. Afterward, the "We Found Love" singer went to Twitter, posting touching photos and tweets about "Gran Gran Dolly."

"Goodbye #grangranDOLLY get your beauty rest until I see you," she wrote.
