A NEW tattoo on singer Chris Brown's neck looks eerily familiar.

The face etched on his skin has a black eye, bulging lips, cuts and scratches - much like the damage he caused to Rihanna's face during a brutal attack in 2009.

The shocking choice of tattoo has made headlines on gossip sites around the world after he was photographed at a Las Vegas event earlier this month.

But Brown's publicist has told Entertainment Weekly it's not Rihanna, rather a picture based on a MAC cosmetics design inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead.

This morning he tweeted: "I'm an artist and this is art. Dia de los Muertos".
