Chris Brown is adding more ink to his neck.

The new tattoo comes just a month after the singer received backlash for the Day of the Dead art he added to his neck -- an image some say resembles a battered woman, reminiscent of Rihanna, post-assault.

Brown posted a picture of his new lion tattoo on Instagram, but did not include any explanation as to the meaning. The image covers a sizable area around his jugular.

Whatever the motivation Brown had for getting the tattoo, this one, thankfully, doesn't seem to have any connection to Rihanna. Her dad recently came out supporting the former couple's reconciliation, but will he approve of Brown's new artwork as well?
