so — this is a real story that broke yesterday. chris brown, the artist who famously battered rihanna, got a new tattoo that looks a lot like a beat-up woman’s face, if not rihanna’s beat-up face. no kidding! that can’t be right, can it??

fortunately, today we learned it’s not supposed to be a battered woman, but a combination of

“a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw.”

whew, that’s a relief. because it looks exactly like a woman’s punched face
