Bow Wow’s Tattoos – Prince of the O-Town

head glasses

Born Shad Gregory Moss in 1987, Bow Wow started out his career at the age of thirteen as “Lil’ Bow Wow”, releasing his first album “Beware of Dog”. He soon entered the acting world with roles in films like “All About The Benjamins” and “Like Mike”, and also soon started entering tattoo shops. He’s tattooed mainly on his arms, but his most prominent piece is on his chest; a script banner reading “Prince of the O-Town”, O-Town refers to Columbus, Ohio where he was raised. Amongst the tattoos on his left arm are a large clown, the letter “B”, and a money bag. On his right arm, he has things like the praying hands of Jesus, a prayer, a vertical line of old English style letters, and a paw print. Scattered around the rest of his body are works that include a rose, dice with flames, dollar signs,  a heart/diamond/spade/club combo, the phrase “Only God can judge me”, his mothers name and face, a flaming skull, and the words, “Boy Wonder”. He seems pretty invested at this point, so it’s only a matter of time before he has two full sleeves and a full back piece, but who can blame him? He likes to get ink, and it’s not like he’s going to get fired from his job…as a rapper…for being too inked up.

Bow Wow those magic tats did nothing to help you in the hoops showdown with Kobe but you might have won the battle of best ink art.

Travis Barker – Cadillac, Boom Box, Flags and Full Color Tattoos


If anyone deserves a tattoo review here is the man. California native, aged 35, he is well on his way to filling up the body canvas. With his wealth of designs, he blesses the covers of tattoo magazines. This is none other than the punk pop drummer Travis Barker, drummer for Blink 182. He has also recently released a solo album Give the Drummer Some where he mixes it up with some other players in his music genre. It has some heavy riffs, hip hop raps, and don’t forget the drums and beats.

Well, this drummer has got some ink. Great color combinations in swirling intricate designs pretty evenly spaced out across his torso and arms up to the side of his head. No doubt he has been taking advantage of good quantity and quality of tattoo artists in the LA area. Facing forward most prominent is the stereo boob box on his stomach, Marilyn Monroe in the center of his neck and the checkered flags on either side of Marilyn. Just below “can I say” is the Cadillac emblem. Cadillac is also written on his side in letters as big as possible. “Hope” on his lower back is written as large possible too. On his right shoulder he has a woman’s face with her blue hair swirling into other organic designs. The dominant themes are scripts, stars and the colors.
