Tattoo artist, Peter Koskela, confirms Chris Brown tattoo is not a battered Rihanna

Chris Brown’s tattoo artist, Peter Koskela, spoke with E! News about Brown’s latest neck tattoo, which some have said looks like a battered-looking Rihanna.

Koskela replied to accusations: “I hate when people misinterpret what I do. 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’ I would never promote any kind of domestic violence like that. 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.”

When people starting noticing Brown’s new tattoo, Brown quickly dismissed the claims. Brown’s new tattoo from August 30 became a topic after the MTV Music Awards last week.

Brown’s representative said: “His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a M.A.C cosmetics design he saw. It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported. It is peeling right now.”

The tattoo artist added: “The dude is serious about his art. When something inspires him, he wants it somewhere on his body, but he never said why he wanted to get that particular piece. When I did see the picture [of Brown in Vegas] and his head was cocked to the side, it did look like it was rough around the edges. People thought it was a beat-up face, but it takes two weeks to heal because the neck is constantly moving.”

Koskela has also tattooed the other side of Brown’s neck, as well as a snake on his rightshoulder blade and a bandit on his left arm. He also said he has only seen Brown with his current girlfriend Karrueche Tran. He added that Rihanna “never comes up at all”.
