Would you tattoo your motto on your body like Rihanna?

OK!OK!Rihanna has taken the slogan t-shirt to the next level. If you ask around, many people may have a motto or phrase they live by. Some may write it on their fridge, an inspiration board, or even say it to themselves as a daily mantra. But that's not enough for Rihanna.

Monday night the singer went to East Side Ink in New York where owner Keith "Bang Bang" McCurdy added another tattoo to her collection. "She told me in advance she'd be coming, and then when she got there, she told me what she wanted: 'Never a failure, always a lesson,' but written backwards," says McCurdy. "I asked her why she wanted that and she said, 'It's kind of my motto in life for everything.' Instead of considering things to be mistakes, considering them lessons." She wanted the phrase written backwards so she would be able to read it in the mirror, and in grey ink to not attract as much attention. Well, with images of the tattoo already all over the internet, the subtle tattoo thing might not work out.

Clearly Rihanna's mantra is something very personal, and as an outsider familiar with the Chris Brown incident, it seems rather empowering and meaningful. We're into it!

Do you have a life motto, and if so, would you tattoo it on your body? [OK!]
