CHRIS BROWN'S 'INK BEFORE YOU THINK' MOMENT

 I'M CHRIS BROWN AND I HAVE A LO-O-O-T OF TATTOOS
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
this PERMANENTLY INKED 
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, chrisbrowntattoos.com, 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.
