Chris Brown continues making bad decisions we’re highly uncomfortable with, this time getting a questionable tattoo on his neck that resembles a battered woman. This comes three years after pleading guilty to felony assault for beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna the night before the Grammys.
Brown showed up on a Las Vegas red carpet with his new ink. Although it resembles the photo police took of Rihanna, the woman in his tattoo has more severe injuries such as a black eye and stitches on her lips.
Brown insists the resemblance isn’t intentional. His rep told TMZ the tattoo is supposed to be a Mexican-themed skull in commemoration of Dia de los Muertos. And according to the tattoo artist, Brown brought him the “sugar skull” design from a MAC ad he’d seen.
