Beyonce Knowles gets inked artwork to celebrate the number 4

Beyonce Knowles has a new tattoo – on her third finger left hand.

The discreet design shows when the singer’s 18-carat diamond wedding ring from hubby Jay-Z slips down her finger.

Beyonce, 29, has been inked with the Roman numerals IV – the number 4 – in red and we’re all left guessing as to what it could stand for.

But it’s a very special number for the couple – Beyonce was born on 4 September, Jay-Z‘s birthday is 4 December and they married on 4 April (the 4th month of the year) in 2008.

Displaying her new tat at the Lorraine Schwartz 2BHappy Jewellery Collection launch event in New York, Beyonce brushed off repeated rumours that she and superstar rapper Jay-Z, 40, are expecting a baby.

‘At this point, they say I’ve been pregnant like eight times, so I am kind of used to it,’ she says.

‘It’s part of being a celebrity, I guess…’
