Chris Brown has been getting a lot of media attention and criticism over his new tattoo that looked like a beat-up Rihanna.

But this is now what his tattoo is about: Chris’s friends cleared the air and said that the tat on the singer’s neck was that of “Sugar Skull” which is a similar looking image of a female skull from a popular Mexican celebration.

According to GlobalGrind the friend stated that it was not Rihanna or an abused woman as it has been erroneously reported.

I think that people would do anything to create controversy, but you be the judge.
