The Worst Celebrity Tattoos: Chris Brown, Rihanna, Angelina Jolie And More (PHOTOS)

Chris Brown and Rihanna turned heads recently when they both showed off new tattoos, which happen to be on identical locations on their bodies. But what really struck a nerve with observers was Brown's mysterious neck tattoo of what appears to be a battered woman.

Although many assume it represents Rihanna, Brown's ex-girlfriend whom he physically assaulted after the Grammys in 2009, his rep released a statement addressing the tattoo. "His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw," the rep said. "It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported."

And so, in keeping with Brown's misadventures in tattooing, let's take a look at other celebrities and their unfortunate ink.
