The love between celebrity super siblings Ray J and Brandy is something the dynamic duo have never tried to hide.
While other celebrity families go out of their way to hide their bonds for fear of nepotism claims, the Norwoods are all about being one another's biggest fans.
Ray, in particular, has always been incredibly supportive of Brandy. But not just supportive of her—it could be argued that Mr. William Ray Norwood, Jr. (yup, that's Ray J.s full name) has been her biggest fan and loudest hype man since his birth.
Brandy has been performing since she was two and Ray J. was most often right there with her to cheer her on.
He's even got some tattoos to celebrate his big sis.
There's the piece on his arm; it features her name written in the same font as the cover of the 1994 album that made her a household name and rocket-launched her career.
And now he's got a portrait of her face on his leg. Before you "awww" and text your siblings about how crappy they are in comparison, you should maybe read more about this portrait.
Or, like, watch the video...
Done by artist Mashkow, the piece starts with a gorgeous black and gray portrait of the singer/actresses face... then Mashkow and Ray J got creative.
They added some face tattoos across her cheeks, a larger brightly colored one across her forehead, and hot pink to the whites of her eyes - which, when healed on Ray Js skin tone, makes them look totally bloodshot.
The video is, unintentionally, a clip that kills the myth that color tattoos don't work on darker skin and demonstrates exactly how it's done.
The video is also creeping folks out.
The quality of the art and color work in this tattoo is spectacular. It's the content that people seem to take issue with.
Brandy has a reputation for being classy, dignified, and somewhat wholesome. This art is a major departure from that.
Is Ray trying to tell the world something? Or is he casting his sister as a character in some larger story that will play out in the rest of the tattoos he has planned for that leg?
We'll have to wait and see; but for now anyone worried that Brandy might be offended by this portrayal can rest easy.
Heart emoji approval granted.
Would you be flattered or fuming if your sibling got your fave tattooed on them in this way?
