Chris Brown has a new tattoo, and to say it has the potential to shock would be an understatement. While at an event Las Vegas earlier this month, Brown revealed new ink, located on the right side of his neck, which appears to be of the battered and bruised face of a woman.

The detailing in the tattoo can be viewed as resembling the disturbing image of Rihanna after the ex-couple's infamous volatile fight the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

According to TMZ, sources close to Breezy's camp say the similarities are "purely coincidental," explaining, "It's a random woman.'" On August 30, This Chris Brown Blog posted a few photos of Chris Brown including one that shows the same tattoo, unfinished. Breezy rocked ink in the same area of his neck during the 2012 MTV VMAs on Thursday (Sept. 6), except the detailing couldn't be seen due to his attire.

Brown's tattoo comes two days after Rihanna inked an Egyptian goddess on her chest in memory of her late grandmother.
