What is it about Rappers and tattoos?
Rick Ross just showed his love for the NBA’s Miami Heat in a face tattoo! Check out Ross sporting a Heat logo tattoo on his face online at GQ here.
Then there’s Drake, the rapper/singer, from Canada, with roots in Tennessee, who recently got a piece repping Toronto (his third, no read on and see that it’s his second…), where interestingly enough, he was hired by the Toronto Raptors, another NBA team, to consult on their new look and branding. You can read about Drake and his tattoos here.
I guess when you’ve got more money to throw around, you can do whatever you want with your ink?
Just ask Gucci Mane, who got an Ice Cream cone on his face?
We know a thing or two about rappers and tattoos as well. Grammy winning recording artist T-Pain stopped by the shop a few years back and got his famous Like Button Tattoo while visiting Hawaii.
Perhaps the answer to why rappers getting tatted in the way they do lies in the fact it read: ‘You don’t have to Like me’
