“Loyal” singer Chris Brown apparently isn't proud of his new tattoo. The R&B singer posted a picture of a head tattoo on his official Instagram account Tuesday and then promptly deleted the image after fans on social media said they didn’t think the tattoo was attractive or in a good spot on his body.
The 26-year-old tattooed an image Venus De Milo, the famous Greek statue, on the right side of his head. The singer is a fan of body art and got his first tattoo when he was 13, the the British tabloid the Daily Mail reported Tuesday.
He initially teased fans by posting a picture of the back of his head, so fans didn’t know if the tattoo was his. But Brown essentially allayed any possible confusion by posting a follow-up picture with the hashtag: “one hell of a night.”
TMZ shared a 14-second video that showed the tattoo in its early state and when it was finished. Brown joked around with his friends and worked on music while tattoo artist King Rico permanently inked his head, the publication reported.
The singer ignored criticism about his tattoo and instead promoted his new tour. “I'll be at the P.N.C. Bank Arts Center tomorrow night for the #OneHellOfANiteTour!” he wrote. “Grab your tickets now.”
The star tweeted Saturday he would name his new album “Royalty” after his 1-year-old daughter. It was his ex-girlfriend, “BBHMM” singer Rihanna, who gave Brown the idea, Hollywood Life said in an exclusive report Tuesday.
The singer shared several pictures of Royalty on Instagram recently, including one that showed his daughter watching him perform. “Ready for the turn up lol,” he captioned the image Sunday. The post received more than 321,000 likes from his 14.3 million followers.
