Is the tatoo on abuser Chris Brown's neck meant to psychologically abuse Rihanna?

Asked by flo (7377 points ) September 11th, 2012

I know love is blind but this Rihanna and Chris thing is ridiculous. Some people say it is not really exactly her beaten up face, but does it have to be exactly the image of her beaten up face to be seen as psychological abuse?

Is he the one who beat her up and they are back together?

No, it does not look like a beat up tattoo of Rihanna to me and he disputes that here.
Why people keep going back to the people that hurt them is anyone’s guess. I was in that position once and left immediately and didn’t look back.

A psychologist would be able to tell you that. I respect Rihanna as an artist, all the more reasons to make me wanna smack the guy around, he’s scum in my book. If, one day, by some “divine intervention” I were to be granted a tourist visa to the US, and meet the guy in a dark alley somewhere… one can dream ;-)

Wow. The tat totally does look like a beaten face, whether it is her or not, who knows?
I only know their business because I read other people discussing it as if it is their business. I have all I can do just keeping track of m GAAAAAAAHHHHHH! I’m out!

Codependency, I guess. They get into patterns and can’t get out of them. Unless maybe they’ve had counseling and have learned new ways of relating to each other. But I ain’t counting on that.

@flo; You’re right about one thing: this Rihanna and Chris thing is ridiculous.

@chyna Given their choices in tattoos, it seems they are made for each other.

Here is a link to an image of the tat.

This guy is a fucking idiot.

maybe not to attack her (but totally maybe) but at the very least his getting that is a display of his guilt. Clearly the artist couldn’t get the image of his abused girlfriend out of his head while working.. so there you go. He’s branded.

at the very very least.. that’s how everyone will always see it.

Everyone before @filmfann,
I have changed the title OP by the way, after you answered, (Fluther said to edit it, too vague)

1) Even if it just any woman’s face what is the difference.? Is he too dumb to see that it is just too similar , and that people might misundertand?
2) Don’t you think that he could have of put in an area that noone can see if he didn’t mean to be committing psychological abuse?

Okay, @chyna the fact that he denies it so it must be true then?
@Trillian you could have edited your post out couldn’t you?
By the way it is a social issue, so it is everybody’s business. Why would discussion of it cause a problem for you? Curious.

He is a millionaire and couldn’t get a better tattoo done, it looks like a poorly made jail tattoo.

It does look exactly like the pic of Rihanna’s beat up face. Anyone who says anything else can’t see clearly.

Deep breath. Abortion is a social issue. Drug related criminal behaviour is a social issue. The penal system is a social issue.
Some schmuck and his relationship with his girlfriend is not a social issue. The tat on said schmuck’s neck is not a social issue. The fact that it has gotten media attention does not make it anything other than sensationalized bullshit.
If one were to speculate on the poor behaviour of every celebrity out there who does not know how to conduct him/herself like an adult, one would never have time to do anything else.
“Is he too dumb to see that it is just too similar , and that people might misundertand?” (sic) What people? Who gives a shit? Why give it more importance than it warrants? It seems more apparent to me that it is a middle finger given by a child to the grown-ups in the room in a bid for attention and the pleasure of having stirred up controversy. The real grown-ups recognize it for what it is and give it all due attention. Which is to say; none.
By all means, get yourself worked up about what he/they should do and what it means. When you’re all finished, let me know what you’ve accomplished.
Doesn’t bother me at all.

Who are these people? And remind me why I should be paying attention.

fremen_warrior's avatar

@Trillian I see your point. It’s none of our business, and I agree. On the other hand most people have a propensity to reel at what they see as “injustice” or unjustified cruelty. Even more so if the victim is someone we respect/like. And, btw., aren’t abusive relationships a social issue?

Small wonder people are overanalyzing this – to see someone society, in large part, has putt on a pedestal, get (supposedly) tormented like this seems “sacrilegious” to a lot of people. It goes against the “rules” of our culture.

Trillian's avatar

@fremen_warrior as I understand it, the people in question are not in a “relationship” (and I use the word in its loosest possible sense).
The topic under discussion is the intent behing a tattoo. Not the same thing at all. No one here knows either party, no one knows anything other than what is related in the press. Concerning one’s self with social issues, trying to make a difference in the life of a hungry person or a battered child is admirable, even noble.
Speculating about the motivations of a person who obviously has anger issues; not so much.

@Trillian No one here knows either party, no one knows anything other than what is related in the press. I take it then, since all you might know about it is what the press tells you, you do not believe anyone should concern themselves with what goes on in Syria right now, everything is peachy, right?

Why are you so agitated by this question anyway?

Trillian's avatar

I’m not agitated, just answering you. What in my answer gave you the idea that I was agitated?
You can’t equate a tattoo on this guy’s neck with the attack on our consulate.

@Trillian

So you just want people to shut up about it, that is the whole purpose of your posts here.

’‘Concerning one’s self with social issues, trying to make a difference in the life of a or a battered child is admirable, even noble. Speculating about the motivations of a person who obviously has anger issues; not so much” This is not speculating just for chatting purposes. People can multi task. They do hunger, the environment, war, not defend abuse, all at the same time.

“I read other people discussing it as if it is their business” So, according to you you’re are in other people’s business here in this post instead of leaving people alone to discuss it? You’re contradicting yourself by your action.

You can’t equate a tattoo on this guy’s neck with the attack on our consulate” I don’t see any equating there and they don’t need to be equal by the way. They are in the same box “News”.

You seem to desperately want people against abuse, to stop posting about it.

Trillian's avatar

^^ You’re mistaken, but not worth the effort it would take to explain. Carry on.
