Say what you want about Rihanna's new "THUG LIFE" tat -- because she's already getting props from "Machete" star and tattoo connoisseur, Danny Trejo ... who calls RiRi the "most beautiful thug in the world."

Danny was in the LA tattoo parlor last night when Rihanna came in to get her art -- and tells us she "didn't stop saying thug life the whole time she was getting it done."

Danny -- who was getting his own impressive back tat of his kids touched up -- says he has no problem with Rihanna's Tupac tribute because she is "one of the downest female thugs in the world." A sentiment he must have been feeling when he and Ri took this pic.

Danny says he just kept thinking, "If I was 40 years younger she would be in a lot of trouble."

No need for names    

She doesn't know the meaning of the word THUG LIFE!!!!!. Just because she got her a%% kicked in by Chris Brown does not make her from the streets.

She is wearing a John Lennon t-shirt. How stupid can this girl be? Doesn't she even know what he stood for? Yoko Ono should have a few words about her ignorance. How can Rihanna endorse a violent in your face lifestyle and wear the face of a man who only wanted everyone to love one another?

Since when is Rhianna livin the thugs life and no longer Jay Z's hip-pop princess? If anyone is credible with this tattoo (and no one should ever tat this... period), it is most definitely not the 16 yr old little girl once discovered from the Caribbean islands. Lets get real

You guys are seriously wrong if you think Tupac was what you consider a "Thug". He was a far better role model than 99% of pop stars are, or ever will be and an absolute inspiration to many. The tattoo on his stomach had a very deep meaning born from tribulations the son of a black panther revolutionist and those alike experienced.

"It was clear to those in the hip hop community that anyone who attempts to rise from despair would be labeled a Thug. Hence, Thug Life became a phrase meaning "the life one must lead in order to rise through the everyday sturggle"; understood by those "in the know" and misunderstood by all others."

Tupac's personal take on this was the acronym T.H.U.G L.I.F.E: "The Hate U Gave Little Infants ****s Everybody. Think about it for a second, position your thoughts within struggling communities and it will be clear what that means.

Then do yourself a favor and research 2pac a little bit to see what kind of a person he was. The person 2pac transcended music with a far bigger purpose.
