Including a really ugly new one that I maybe shouldn't have got. But I'll tell you this, it ain't Rihanna. And it ain't my current girlfriend, either. Whatever her name is...

Here's a typical Mexican
"Day of the Dead" face. 
Which is obviously totally cool
 and zexy and anyone can see 
why Chris Brown would want
onto his neck, right?
Poor silly, ink-addled Chris Brown. He just can’t seem to stop making bad decisions. His latest gaffe: an amateurish neck tattoo that immediately set news and gossip websites ablaze because A) it looks a bit like Rihanna and B) it looks a LOT like Rihanna after he beat her. Brown’s rep hotly denied Brown would do such a stupid thing. In fact, he'll have you know, what it is is a tattoo of a skull associated with Mexico's Day of the Dead celebrations. Oh. Right. I don’t know why I didn’t immediately guess that. 
If you ask me, the heavily tatted crooner needs to start running his decisions past a trained thinker before he acts on them. He also needs maybe just one more tattoo. A big one, right across his forehead so he can see it every time he looks in the mirror. “TODAY: TRY TO STOP BEING A JACKASS!”

Fun facts: Here, for kicks and because there's not much else to do on a boring mid-week day, are some more banal tidbits about the many tatts of Chris Brown.
  • There's an entire grovelling website,, devoted to his inkings and "the meaning behind each one." (Apparently some people have even less to do on a boring mid-week day than I do.)
  • He got his first ink when he was 13, a tasteful Jesus tattoo with music notes intended as an homage to Our Maker for blessing him with music.
  • He has a tattoo of his current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, on his elbow. I thought we'd all learned from Johnny Depp's Winona Forever tatt that getting your girlfriend's name/face permanently injected into your skin is a bad idea. But what do I know? The only tatt I have is a chunk of pencil lead embedded in my shoulder by my baby brother. He was 5 at the time and very angry with me about something or other. And I'm sure I totally deserved it. 
  • Here's the link to Brown's messy new tattoo: My Ugly New Ink! And I have to say, I don't care WHO it's supposed to be, that young man needs to shave.
