Chris Brown’s neck tattoo is not Rihanna

Chris Brown

The other day, the web caught wind of Chris Brown‘s new neck tattoo, which featured a woman’s face which appeared to be heavily battered and bruised. Considering Chris’s history of domestic abuse, this probably wasn’t the best idea in the world. Anyway, today he’s trying to clear the rumours by saying that it was actually a face from a MAC Cosmetic Ad. ABC News reports …

“His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw,” Brown’s rep said. “It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported.” The rep noted that the tattoo is peeling right now, making it look not like the design Brown originally intended.

Just putting this out there, but if the biggest scandal of your career involved a woman with a battered face, maybe don’t tattoo that on an incredibly visible part of your body. Or better yet, maybe feel some remorse and work on yourself to get rid of those violent, overemotional impulses. Either of those would be infinitely better than a battered face tattoo.
