Chris Brown shows off new Venus De Milo head tattoo

R&B singer has head of Greek statue tattooed on his skull

Chris Brown has had an image of the Venus De Milo statue inked onto the back of his head.

The sculpture is one of the most famous pieces of ancient Greek art and is currently on permanent display at the Louvre in Paris. It depicts Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty.

Brown, who got a Day Of The Dead tattoo on his neck in 2012, recently posted a now-deleted picture of the new tattoo to Instagram with the caption: “#onehellofanight #legendarynights #OHB do what you want and if u aint wit the bandwagon u will be soon #KEEPIT 100”.

In May, Brown apologised for his “mistakes” and for “being a dog” in a confessional Instagram post.

The singer made the headlines in 2009 after assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna. He apologised on May 28 for “being a dog sometimes” in a long caption to an Instagram post that shows him lounging near a beach with his feet up.

Brown, who continues to receive plaudits at A-list awards ceremonies despite his history of violent abuse, claimed that “my actions contributed a lot to my karma”, admitting that there had been “times where I looked in the mirror and hated the person I see”. He added: “I talk to God a lot now.”

Chris Brown has also recently been embroiled in a disagreement with Church of Christ religious sect following a gig in the Philippines which was meant to take place on New Year’s Eve 2014. Brown pulled out of the gig but, according to the church who helped fund the gig, he was paid $1m (£645,000) for his time.

Last month, the R&B singer was left stuck in Manila for three days after being refused permission to leave the country following a visit. Promoter Michael Pio Roda was arrested and lawyers working for an associate of Brown have confirmed in a statement that Pio Roda has denied the suggestion that the $1m was received by Brown’s team.
