Chris Brown has always been fond of visiting tattoo shops, inking up his chest and arms -- check out his recent video for 'Strip' to see the shirtless singer with loads of permanent body art. The crooner's most recent tattoo pays tribute to his new girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.

KarenCivil.com reports that the Virginia native has inked Tran's face on his left arm, beside his elbow. The 'Fortune' creator apparently dedicated the piece to the blonde-haired aspiring model. The tattoo comes from a past photo shoot Tran did, where she appears as a brunette, her hair covering parts of her face, which is decorated in paint.

Brown and his main squeeze have been dating since last year, showing up at events together and photographed by paparazzi shopping hand-in-hand. The two welcomed 2012 as a couple, posing on the red carpet at PURE nightclub in Las Vegas on Dec. 31. The R&B singer was suited up in a black tux while Tran wore an ivory dress. A few weeks after they were shot as a happy couple, news spread of former girlfriend Rihanna wishing to spark up another romance with CB.

On the music front, the 22-year-old will attend the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 12, where he is in the running for three awards. Brown competes against a slew of big name entertainers in categories for Best R&B Album, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.
