CHRIS BROWN has a new tattoo of a woman's face on his neck, and a lot of people think it looks like RIHANNA. Others have speculated that it's a BATTERED WOMAN . . . because there are marks on the face.
--Turns out it's neither. Brown's rep says it was inspired by a half-skull design he happened to see . . . which was released by the MAC Cosmetics company in honor of Mexico's Day of the Dead festival.
(--Whatever the tattoo is, it inspired a new Internet meme . . . so it's got that going for it. Check out these pics of what Justin Timberlake, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Swift would look like with similar neck tattoos.)
