Chris Brown's Neck Tattooo Is NOT Rihanna! Rep Says It Commemorates Day Of The Dead

| Filed under: RihannaWacky, Tacky & TrueChris Brown

Okay. This explanation is a LITTLE more believable than his last!

Chris Brown shocked the world by tattooing a face on his neck that looks incredibly similar to his old flame, Rihanna. His peeps have been emphatically denying that he meant the ink to resemble his ex and said it is simply supposed to be some "random woman."

The controversy really got kicking once some sources pointed out stretched similarities between the new tat and RiRi's battered face after her 2009 assault, but now his rep has come forward to settle this once and for all!

No, it is not a picture of Rihanna and it is DEFINITELY not a picture of her bruised face after he abused her. Turns out that the tattoo is an artist's rendition of a "sugar skull" design from a makeup adertisement, as his rep explained:

"His tattoo is a sugar skull and a MAC cosmetics design he saw. It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported."

It's meant to be a commemoration of Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos — otherwise known as Day of the Dead.

    It was pretty obveous that the tattoo was not of Rihanna. First of all if you look at the lips alone it's a dead give away. Rihanna's bottom lip is larger than her top lip and the tat has a larger upper lip. The nose's don't look similar at all… people need to let this go everything they say and do does not have to do with each other!

    Looks like Rihanna after he beat her up.

    Looks like a Disney wicked queen with a little road rash.

    It is just a little strange he would get a tattoo of a woman that looks to be beaten to hell. But it's not surprising that connection would be lost on him, he has never shown any remorse whatsoever.

    lol, how the fuck does that look like Rihanna? People are so desperate for something to talk about…

    Question why, with his history of abuse, he would even think it acceptable to tatoo this image on his neck. He clearly is not well and sadly, either is she, given her recent statements/behavior towards him. Just a sad situation all around.

    Who cares though? It's his neck and his tattoo.

    Re: overthere – The original drawing is irrelevant. The tattoo is absolutely awful if the artist wanted it to look like that drawing. It looks exactly like a woman that has had this living ish beat out of her. If you disagree with that statement maybe you are the moron, ever think of that?

    Re: MewLover34 – how has he not shown remorse? That's an ignorant statement and purely just an opinion, not fact. Move on from it as he is trying to. He paid his debt to society in the eyes of the law and even recently volunteered at a domestic violence center (which was not required). Get a life!

    Re: CaliGuRL – If you think he has paid his debt to society then there is just nothing to talk about. He paid no debt whatsoever. Justice would have been if people where walking up to him on the street and beating his ass, If he was blacklisted from this business for more than a few months, If he served maybe, I don't know, ONE day in jail. Chris Brown was a complete jerk-off before he put his hands on anyone, and that fact has never changed.

    I think the tattoo artist played a fast one on C.B. because even though it's similar to the Day of the Dead pic, it clearly looks loke Rihanna. Did the artist do it intentionally, or subconsciously? Either way, hideous tat.

    Why the fuck is he celebrating Dia de los muertos, didn't know he was mexican.It's common sense that he shouldn't have that tattoo .It's like a pedophile would tattoo a naked baby on his face and say "Hey it's just a Hallmark card":.

    Re: Jacka$$ – her top lip was hugely swollen after he beat her up.. bullshit that he didn't know that it looks like an assaulted rihanna

    Oh, well, in that case, Chris Brown is not a human douchebag. Oh, wait, he still is.

    Re: Ally – A person doesn't have to be Mexican to have a day of the dead tattoo. Plenty of people have them who aren't Mexican, myself included. Maybe we just like the art of it, or the meaning behind it. I personally got one to memorialize my father who passed away from cancer. I thought it was a beautiful way to remember your dead family and the art work associated with it was amazing. On that note let's switch to Chris Brown's tattoo in general. It was horribly done, the shading is atrocious and it looks like the artist butchered it!!! Bad tattoo in general.

That face chart belongs to a fantastic Makeup Artist from Vegas called Haley who works in the MAC PRO store in Vegas, and you didnt even credit her?! Shame on you!!! I know you court the media but this isnt fair on the girl!

    Seriously with his history, he thinks that this tat is appropriate. No matter the meaning behind it. Just wrong.
