Cara Delevingne’s first tattoo

Lion ink by Rita & RiRi’s go-to guy

Cara Delevingne and her ‘wifey’ Rita Ora have always had a thoroughly modern ‘marriage’, and now they’ve sealed it in equally modern fashion – with matching animal inks.

Just days after Rita revealed a swooping dove tattoo on the back of her neck, Cara has been showing off a tattoo – her first – of a lion on the index finger of her right hand on Instagram. At the time of writing, it has almost 60,000 likes.


She even had it done by the same tattooist: the eponymous Bang Bang of Bang Bang NYC.

Conversely, though, it was Rihanna – aka @badgalriri – that Cara tagged in the post, captioning it: ‘My first tattoo!! Lions rule! Thank you so much @bangbangnyc @badgalriri’.

Because Bang Bang is also RiRi’s go-to body-art guy. Naturally.
