Folks, we here at Celebrity Tattoo Design see a lot of ridiculous ink, so it takes a lot to surprise us, and even more to make our jaws drop, but we will be damned if we didn’t stare in awe when we got a look at Gucci Mane. The man who gave us Back to the Trap House, The State Vs. Radric Davis, and The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted has two of the most random tattoos we’ve seen in a while, the “EA Sports” video game logo, and an ice cream cone with lightning coming out of it. However, what takes them from random to completely insane is where they’re placed. The EA logo is on his throat, and the ice cream cone is on his face. We tried and we tried, but other than it being proof that he wasn’t lying when he pleaded insanity in a recent court case, there’s no good reason why he would’ve gotten this tattoo. Yes, we know it says “brrr” and that’s his catchphrase, but still; there’s better tattoos and better body parts he could have went with.
It used to be that when you thought about Mike Tyson, you thought, “Dominant Boxer”. However, these days Mike Tyson is more known for the great boxer he was, the even better boxer he could have been, the criminal he became, and the good man he has become; oh yeah, and for his face tattoo. Everyone knows about Iron Mike’s famous tribal on the left side of his mug, but many forget that he also has a bunch of other somewhat strange ink all over his body. The man that a whole generation only knows as “the guy in The Hangover” not only has his famous face tat, but also has a picture of Mao Zedong, a picture of Ché Gueverra, and a picture of Arthur Ashe. I understand each one individually, but I can’t exactly see the three of them having lunch together, so I don’t understand appreciating each one enough to tattoo them on yourself without feeling conflicted. However, I also can’t understand biting someone during a regulated bout, so maybe Mike and I aren’t on the same page.
Rick Ross’ career as a hip-hop artist let’s him get away with some things that the rest of us can’t. He can get arrested, and it’s just more street cred. He can do drugs, and it just makes him seem more “hood”. He could probably slap a nun and people would just assume it was something involving “tricks” and “skee-bops” (I think I made that second one up). He can also get a ridiculous tattoo of the symbol for popular 80s sunglass designer “Cazal”on his face and people just think it’s cool. I’m not sure how I feel about this one. I mean, who doesn’t like Rick Ross? The guy is super talented. However, I can’t rationalize getting a brand logo permanently placed on any part of my body, but I have some pretty stupid tattoos myself, so I guess it’s all in the eye of the beholder or something like that. So I guess guys like Rick Ross will have face tattoos, and guys like me won’t. Something else guys like Ross have that I don’t: MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
