10 Of Hip Hop’s Worst Tattoos
Think before you ink.
Hip hop and ‘getting ink’ have gone side by side for as long as we can remember, but that doesn’t mean it’s always been a happy marriage. To put it bluntly, there have been some shockers over the years, possibly starting with Tupac’s ‘Thug Life”, though we doubt that was the nadir of the genre - Gucci Mane’s ice cream cone anyone? Anyway, here’s a list of a few you might already know, as well as several you might be best to forget. Ladies and gentlemen, we present you with ten of ‘Hip Hop’s Worst Tattoos’:
Riff Raff’s TV network logo’s
Getting yourself on the cast of an MTV reality show is interesting, but not tattoo most of your neck interesting.
Iggy Azaleas ‘Live Love A$AP’
Hooking up can be fun. Until you realise you’ve got your ex’s name tattooed on the inside of your finger…
T-Pains ‘You Don’t have to Like Me’
Dude needs to stop going to Hawaii. He gets one every time he’s in town. This one was in 2011, before facebook introduced their ‘react’ emoticons.
Stitches… Whole Face
This guy scares us. Obscenities on your own face? Dude, why?
The Games ‘ever-changing face tattoo’
What started as a poorly executed butterfly is now a fairly ridiculous LA Dodgers logo. A cautionary tale people - think before you ink.
Rappers and their girlfriends. Pfft.
Talk about cringeworthy, and downright creepy. A misguided tribute to his uncle and grandmother.
Ja Rule’s ‘Loki’
When you try to change your name for an album but someone else is already using it...oops.
Nick Cannon’s ‘Mariah’
Talk about the mother of all cover-ups. Getting divorced is painful.
Birdman’s 5 red stars
Not one, not two - five. Apparently he needed to ‘feel that pain’. I think we all do.
