Whatever it is, you guys need to stop talking about it, because you’re really starting to make Chris Brown‘s tattoo artist angry.
From E! Online:
“I hate when people misinterpret what I do,” veteran tattoo artist Peter Koskela, the man behind Brown’s latest piece of body art, exclusively tells E! News. “It was really a blow to me to think that people would think so little of a person that I would actually put a picture of a beaten woman on his neck. That was crazy to me, that he would come to me and say, ‘Hey, I want Rihanna’s face on me.’”
Well, it sounds especially absurd when he puts it that way.
“I would never promote any kind of domestic violence like that,” Koskela continued. “Even if he asked me to do it, I would have bounced right there. I don’t do racist tattoos, I don’t do gang-related tattoos and I don’t do anything hurtful. That is just the motto I live by. The other tattoo artists might, but I just don’t.”
Uh, not to be mean or anything, but maybe do a better job? If hundreds of people think the tattoo is of a woman’s beaten face, then maybe that’s because it kind of looks like a woman’s beaten face. But it’s not on you, tattoo guy, it’s really not. It’s on Chris Brown, who, any way you look at it, decided to tattoo the image of an abused or dead woman right on his neck. Nobody looked at the tattoo and thought “man, that Peter Koskela, what a giant dick.” Rest easy, friend. Your name is not tarnished.
But I’ll let it be known right now, if you also did Chris Brown’s other most recent tattoo, this business:
If you did that, then I’ll scream it from the rooftops, Peter Koskela is a giant dick. What an awful tattoo.
