Chris Brown's newest neck tattoo is a lion

Well, Chris Brown clearly doesn't do things by halves. His latest foray into the art of self-inking does nothing to dispute that, as the ever-controversial singer took to Twitter this week to show off his latest tattoo.

Make that his latest neck tattoo. Check out the photos over on E!.

Taking pride of place on his jugular, right beside his decidedly not-Rihanna inking, is (ready?) the face of a lion. Of course.

The lion's head sits squarely on the front of his throat and was presented to his followers without comment on Tuesday.

It's unclear where or when he got inked or what symbolic meaning (if any) he's hoping to impart with his animal marking, but we're sure all will be revealed in due time.

In any case, the tat is likely a very recent development for Brown, as photos posted to his Twitter earlier this month show him sans the new ink.

Regardless, it's probably time to update that Chris Brown neck tattoo meme. We're counting on you, Internet.
