Brandy's Elephant Tat

Now With Less Tip!

1/27/2011 8:30 AM PST BY Johnny Lopez

Brandy's elephant tattoo was officially emasculated this week -- after the artist decided the trunk was a little too "phallic" for his liking ... TMZ has learned.

The tattoo artist tells TMZ ... Brandy's work hadn't been completed when she posted the photos online last month ... but after certain people hinted the trunk resembled some male genitalia, the artist decided to snip the tip. 

The artist, Peter Koskela, tells us, "I wanted to fix the offending tip ... remove the whole phallic aspect. I told her I'd just swing it upwards."

We're told the trunk-trimming went down earlier this week -- hopefully, a mohel was present at the time.

Elephant tat? You guys do know what this image is, don't you? It's Ganesha, the Hindu god with the head of an elephant. Google his name to find out what he represents. Gives you some interesting new angles to write about in conjunction with Ms. Brandy, e.g. what's up with this infatuation with Hinduism, Ms. B.?

The only reason why she modified that tat was because of the backlash she got about it looking like a penis. If you want a **** on your wrist, do you! Afterall, you did walk out of the parlor a satisfied customer the 1st time.

That is a completely different tat and arm. Look carefully at the lines in the two wrists, they are different and they never change on a person. The eyes on the elephant are diffeent as well as numerous other things. Two seperate people and tats.

he should have made the elephant cover her entire arm. That would have made the penis look smaller.

What the hell is someone as dark as Brandi doing putting a tatoo on her? Black people STILL have this slave mentality. They think that when a White person does something it's always right. They always say they hate Whites but will emulate the hell out of them. They emulate what whites say AND do. IT'S JUST SO FRIGGING SAD.

That is one of the ugliest tattoos I have ever seen - even after the "artist" fixed it.

Looks like coke on the table! It's not right? But it looks like powder has been slid across to the end. Kinda like a rail. I never got powder with my Tat2.
