Tat Shop Fined After Rihanna Worked the Needle

9/4/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

RihannaTMZ has learned the city of New York officially cracked down on the tattoo parlor where Rihanna illegally inked a few people back in July.

The day after Rihanna made her mark, East Side Ink was issued a citation by the the NYC Department of Health for "operating with an unlicensed tattoo artist on site."

It's unclear how much the tat shop had to pay in fines, but we're told it could run anywhere between $200-$2000.

Maybe she will show some class and offer to pay it for them. You don't need to be the store owner to know you have no business taking over the needle on your own. I know she was probably just having fun, and the owners (or whoever) were too star-struck to tell her no (recurring theme with celebrities, huh), but I think she can "man" up and pay it for them.

Nobody gives a crap about this camera whore. This is Michael Jackson's day. Finally you are resting in peace. It was nice to see the family and the kids again and although I wanted to see the entire funeral I'm glad they cut the live feed for all the media.
