Rihanna's new tattoo, in honor of her grandmother, posted on her Instagram account.
Star-crossed ex-lovers Rihanna and Chris Brown are expressing themselves through new tattoos. Given their violent history, his latest tat might be seen as kind of creepy.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Brown has covered the right side of his neck with the face of a woman who looks like she's been beaten. Brown denies the woman is Rihanna, the ex-girlfriend he was convicted of assaulting three years ago. But the tattoo resembles the infamous picture of Rihanna's injured face taken shortly after the assault.
A rep for Brown told ABC News that the tattoo is not Rihanna, it's a Mexican sugar skull (candy and toys for Mexico's Nov. 1 Day of the Dead parties) and similar to a MAC cosmetics design Brown saw.
The pair have sort of reconciled since the assault. They've been spotted together on occasional dates, and she told Oprah in an interview last month that she sometimes misses him.
She, meanwhile, has just gotten a huge tattoo of a winged Egyptian goddess splayed across her torso under her breasts, according to New York's Daily News.
Rihanna showed it off in a photo from her Instagram account Sunday night, with her hands covering her nipples. The tattoo is a depiction of Isis, the Egyptian goddess of motherhood and fertility. It's meant to be a tribute to her late grandmother, Clara (Dolly) Brathwaite, who died of cancer July 1.
"Goddess Isis -- Complete Woman -- Model for future generations -- #GRANGRANDOLLY," she wrote in the caption. "Always in and on my heart."
