Chris Brown: “I’m An Artist And This Is Art”

The “art” that we’re talking about, of course, is Chris Brown‘s new tattoo that may or may not be an image of Rihanna after he assaulted her. He tweeted that quote yesterday, the “I’m an artist and this is art” claptrap, along with “Dia de los Muertos,” so yeah, all of you guys who said it was a sugar skull were (perhaps) right.

Chris’ rep (bless her heart) also made a little statement to clear up any confusion:

“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.”

Another interesting thing is that Chris tweeted a link to a story on Perez Hilton that had this charming quote from a source close to Chris:

“Naw man, that’s [isn’t] Rihanna tatted on [Chris] no matter how much [you all are] trying to make it seem. Sorry, it [isn’t] her. [Chris] loves women and you know he loves Ri, but come on now, he [isn’t] about to tat a bitch on him. That [isn’t] how he rolls.”

Obviously, Chris and his people can say whatever they want about his silly tattoo, but I don’t know if I buy it. Here’s a closeup, so we can analyze it:

If it’s what they’re saying it is, then is it fair to say that it’s kind of poorly done? But then again, if it’s supposed to be Rihanna, then it’s poorly done as well. I just don’t see the resemblance.

  • ha i knew i saw the M.A.C face in there. and are you kidding about getting a tattoo of a dead woman? thousands of people have sugar skull tattoos, its a popular tattoo. you must be kidding. anyway, it’s a completely horrible tattoo, it always makes me irritated when i see rich people with shitty tattoos. you have the ability to be tattooed by the best, and you just settle for whatever is down the street. maybe no talented, self-respecting tattoo artist wanted to give him one ;)

  • It looks nothing like Rihanna. Its just a woman. people look to far into things.

    That being said he is a moron. A FACE tattoo on your neck? Further a sugar skull? Sure people get those, but a guy who is trying to get rid of his I beat women rep? There is just nothing smart about it. Its bad PR, its badly drawn, and in a shitty place. but hey he can do whatever he wants to his body, he should just know its fucking stupid.
