Chris Brown tattoos, ranked by fans of the sexy star and of body art. Chris Brown released his self-titled debut album in 2005 featuring the Billboard No. 1 single "Run It!" Known for his high energy dance moves and mega watt smile, the singer earned his first Grammy Award in 2012 for Best R&B Album for his album F.A.M.E. Brown was also at the center of a controversial domestic violence case after he was charged with assaulting on-and-off girlfriend and fellow pop superstar Rihanna in February 2009. The couple eventually reconciled and even rekindled their relationship in 2013.

Chris Brown's tats honor the people in his life that are most important to him and remind him of how far he's come in the entertainment industry. Brown has at least 18 tattoos, each with a special meaning or memory. Chris Brown body art includes the words "Symphonic Love" and a pair of wings across his chest, a smiley face with a skull peeking out on the back of his neck, and a Day of the Dead image that some initially thought looked like his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Similar to other stars that have tattoos, such as Katy Perry tats or David Beckham body ink, Chris Brown has made headlines several times as he has added a new tattoo to his collection. He is one of the hottest tattooed celebrities and famous people with tattoos.
