Chris Brown may already be regretting his new neck tattoo. Because tattoos on the neck are usually such a good idea, if you’re trying to impress the guy you work in the prison library with.
Anyway, pretty much everyone who saw the tattoo thought it looked an awful lot like his ex-girlfriend Rihanna after he’d beaten her to a pulp.
I wouldn’t normally ask if you all remember the gruesome photo where her right eye had half-closed from impact, but it seems like a lot of people don’t (see Chris winning at the Billboard Music Awards, BET Awards, Grammys and VMAs since his highly publicized domestic violence arrest in 2009).
Maybe, instead of ooing and awing at Rihanna and Chris Brown’s admittedly cringeworthy hug at the 2012 Video Music Awards, we should take a look at why is still invited to such events in the first place.
Of course even I know that Chris isn’t quite stupid enough to get a tattoo of her bruised and bloody face. His rep says it’s a Dia de los Muertos-themed tattoo inspired by a MAC cosmetics ad.
His rep told TMZ:
“His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw. It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported.”
