Making it permanent! Rihanna got a shark tattoo inspired by a stuffed toy rumored beau Drake gave her.

“Camo shark for my dear friend @badgalriri,” tattoo artist Bang Bang captioned a black-and-white photo on Instagram of Rihanna’s new ankle ink on Thursday, September 1. Her new tattoo features a tiny camouflage shark that resembles the plush toy the "One Dance” artist, 29, gave her earlier this month.

According to TMZ, Rihanna, 28, got the new tattoo after Drake’s concert in Miami on Wednesday, August 31.

On Sunday, August 28, Drake shared an adorable selfie with RiRi and the cute plush shark, reportedly from an aquarium visit in Toronto.

“This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us! You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you! @badgalriri,” he captioned the snap ahead of the "Work" singer’s big night at the MTV VMAs.

As previously reported, the two musicians sort of confirmed their romance after Drake presented Rihanna with the Video Vanguard Award. During his heartfelt speech, the "Hotline Bling" rapper declared his love for the songstress.

“She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old,” he gushed. “She's one of my best friends in the world.”

Before the awards show, Drake even took out a billboard in Los Angeles to congratulate his love.

Before getting her new tattoo Wednesday night, the "Needed Me" singer and Drake also shared a kiss on stage during his Summer Sixteen show.
