Chris Brown Visits Rihanna’s Tattoo Arist

By: Betsy Waldman / July 28, 2009

We wonder what Rihanna thinks about this one.

Chris Brown paid a visit to his former lover’s tattoo artist this weekend. You know, the guy who gave Rihanna her menacing gun tattoo?

The 20-year-old singer stopped at New York tattoo parlor East Side Ink for an appointment with Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy around 12:30 AM on Saturday morning.

The artist spent over 2 hours drawing images on Chris’ body, including spaceships and “puffy stars” borrowed from classic video games like Galaga and the “Mario” series, as well as some graffiti-style animals.

Bang Bang told OK!, “He gets tattoos of stuff that he likes from his childhood. He has cartoon characters on his upper arm — like Anime style cartoons — too.”

Was RiRi the topic of conversation? Bang Bang remained mum on that, but did say that Chris commented on the line-drawing of an umbrella that Rihanna did on the tattoo artist in July. “He said she did a great job,” he revealed.

He also said that the two “goofed off,” adding that “we talked about some crude things that guys talk about.”

Well, that isn’t too shocking.
