Face Time With Gucci Mane

Body art is taking over hip-hop – looks like the Alliance and Fabo were on to something with their 2007 single “Tattoo (Tatted Up).” It seems like rappers are taking the term to a new level. It’s not enough just to have three or four tattoos anymore, tatted up means you’re covered – everywhere. Sleeves aren’t even pushing the envelope anymore. If you wanna show you’re a real diehard ink fan, you’ve got to get the face done too. But some rappers seem to forget that once you get a tat you can’t go back – as Game so readily learned when he got his butterfly tattoo covered up with “LA” and a star.

In light of Gucci Mane’s latest ink edition, XXLmag.com came up with a few ideas for the Atlanta rap star to consider when the time might come to replace that ice cream cone!

Pick your favorite facial tattoo for the hip-hop’s heavyweight, and if you have your own face tat, tweet us @XXLstaff and we’ll post the best ones!

    I mean … the forehead tats will take attention away from his cheeks … we gotta look at the bigger picture.

    Yo! OMG, please!!! It’s painful enough to see parents of children my daughter is in preschool with have awful ink on their necks and hands; the occasional behind the ear. Even, still, those are like names n shit (which doesn’t make it better) but when I start seeing these same, folks just tryin to make it, sportin’ logos n shit on their face; I’ma have to start sayin somthin’!
    People, especially young people, how do you expect to move up in this world looking like a moron. I’ve got tats on my arms but they can be hidden in a professional environment. You stand to prevent yourself from good opportunity when your immediate first impression says “I’m a horrible decision maker”.
