Washington Wizards’ John Wall Gets Tattoos of Tupac Shakur and Lil Wayne
Is it safe to say we know the identities of John Wall's two favorite rappers? Probably not, but his two newest tattoos make it mighty hard to dispute. Recently, the Washington Wizards point guard got himself tattoos of Lil Wayne and Tupac Shakur on his thigh.
Wall explained his reasoning for getting his new tattoos in the caption of an Instagram photo featuring his new ink. "Baby wayne @liltunechi , Wolf Wall .....All these tattoo define my up bringing thru music and who I am !! #wallway #5Deep #BYB salute to them !!" he wrote.
The new tattoos are all in close proximity on one of the NBA superstar's thighs. The first image is a re-creation of the image from Weezy's Tha Carter III album. If you didn't remember, that cover features a picture of Lil Wayne as a baby. The ’Pac image appears to be a re-creation of his face when he famously spit at reporters well over 20 years ago. There's also a tattoo of a wolf right next to those, making it as interesting a combo as any.
Of course, Wall isn't the first contemporary superstar to get a tattoo dedicated to Weezy. A little while back, it was revealed that Drake, who Weezy signed to his Young Money label over half a decade ago, got an image of Weezy tatted on his arm. Before that, the Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant got himself a Tupac Shakur tattoo of his own.
