After a big break-up, everything gets divided up between the former lovers — from friends to forks.

But apparently Rihanna and Chris Brown are still sharing custody of their tattoo artist.

Around 12:30 AM on Saturday morning, Chris dropped in at top-notch New York tattoo parlor East Side Ink for an appointment with Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy — the very same man that Rihanna famously tattooed earlier this month.

Bang Bang spent two hours drawing images including spaceships and “puffy stars” borrowed from classic video games like Galaga and the “Mario” series on the Forever star, plus some graffiti-style animals.

“He gets tattoos of stuff that he likes from his childhood,” Bang Bang told OK!. “He has cartoon characters on his upper arm — like Anime style cartoons — too.”

So what did they talk about all that time?

“We just goofed off,” said the tattoo artist. “We talked about some crude things that guys talk about.

“We talked about five-hour energy drinks and what they’re good for…”

We’re sure we don’t know what he means by that!

Apparently the guys didn’t chat much about Rihanna, but Bang Bang did say that Chris was impressed with the line-drawing of an umbrella that his ex-girlfriend had done on his leg at the beginning of July.

“He said she did a great job,” he said.
