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.

Some of you are ignorant racist jacka**** . What the hell does getting a tattoo has to do with Brandy trying to be like white people . Do you believe some white people are trying to be like people of color when they get a tan or have their lips enlarged ? It's her body and it's none of your business what she does to it . Regardless of what negative comments are stated on this website ,Brandy is beautiful inside and out . @justsaying you should educate yourself on the different complexions of african americans . Once you do that then you would know that Brandy doesn't have a dark complexion .

Yuck!! Why get a tattoo? Untill there is an ink that absorbs into the skin and fades completly away in a year, I don't see the point. Because in 30 years that awesome looking red heart tatoo you got at 20 will then look like a squashed plum from color fade and skin wrinkling.

The preservative in tattoo ink has mercury in it. Check out THE SMOKING TOOTH on youtube. Why would anyone deliberately put mercury in their bodies?

Lets Be Honest    

Still a stupid tattoo but much improved over the original version.

Although I'm sure the family of the person Brandi killed would only wish their family member could get a tattoo. Pretty sad that killing someone is treated just like a little bump in the road, right Brandi?

It is Brandy in both pics..all this judging coming from people.
Usually people who judge so harshly are unhappy and feel the need to project it outward..
The artist is amazing check his facebook peter tattooist...Much Love and respect to all,

An elephant is an elephant not a male appendage. If she truly wanted to honor Ganesh she would not have suc***bed to pressure to change it.

These tattoos are completely different... this can't be hers. The eyes on the elephant are different, everything in her tatt is bigger...

Ya'll are dumbasses & so is Brandy. If she's not a hindu, then she should not be getting a tattoo of a hindu gods She certainly doesn't live according to hindu principles so why get a religious tattoo? It makes no sense and just makes her look dumb.

BTW, quit with the elephant hate! Elephants are cute <3
