Chris Brown’s new neck tattoo is getting much flak for looking too much like a battered and bruise Rihanna.

Could this be possibly his eternal reminder of the day his knuckles went crazy on his ex-girlfriend?

Sinister comparisons claim that the tatoo matches TMZ’s much-publicized police photo of a visibly shaken  Rihanna, taken the day of Chris Brown’s physical attack on her on February 2009.

Chris Brown’s camp is quick to refute that the neck tattoo is that of a skull celebrating the Mexican Day of the Dead holiday.

Much like Rihanna, the hiphop singer also has a similar underboob tattoo.

The volatile pair have stirred rumors that they were getting back together after that surprising PDA at the MTV VMAs 2012.
