A few days back, Rihanna commissioned a tattoo from her friend Bang Bang in Miami and got a tiny, camouflage shark on her shin around the front of her ankle. The tattoo appears to be inspired a stuffed shark that Drizzy bought RiRi during a date at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. Drake reportedly rented out the aquarium to host an intimate, romantic late-night dinner in front of the fish tanks. Later on he reportedly gifted Rihanna the camo shark stuffed animal as a souvenir.
When asked about the tattoo, Bang Bang told Complex via email, “I can only say it’s personal, I’ve seen many people online guessing what the tattoo means, but it’s not my place to say. I will say I’ve tattooed Rihanna many times and last night was my favorite.”

During Drake’s concert in New Orleans this week, some truly perceptive fans noticed the same exact tattoo adorned on Drake’s arm.

Especially in the wake of Drake’s effusive speech for Rihanna at the VMA’s last weekend, the evidence continues to mount that there’s at least something going on between these two. Matching tattoos—especially provided the context—would certainly seem to indicate romance.
