LAS VEGAS, NV - SEPTEMBER 01: Singer Chris Brown arrives at the Kandy Vegas Labor Day weekend party at the Hard Rock Hotel &

Despite alarmed Internet comments to the contrary, we've received word from a rep for Chris Brown that his latest tattoo has nothing to do with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

"His tattoo is a sugar skull, associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead," the rep said in a statement. "It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported."

In other words, Chris Brown did not get the world's most offensive tattoo. 

"It is peeling right now," the rep says, which explains why it looks a bit raw in the photo above. Tattoo artist Peter Koskela—who gave Breezy his neck ink—described the tat, through Brown's rep, as "a sugar skull based on the MAC design that Chris brought me." You can check out the original design, sent to us by Brown's rep, below.

So there you go. It's a fairly typical tattoo, not a bizarrely brazen, offensive image to flaunt in plain view of the world.
