Action Bronson Gives an Intimate Tour of His Favorite Tattoos
Action Bronson's body is covered in tattoos, although many of them may be difficult to see underneath the baggy clothes the New York rapper often wears. But on Tuesday (July 31), Bronson sat down with GQ to give an intimate tour of some of his favorite tats.
The Queens rhymer first showed off his very first tattoo, which was his daughter's name on his chest and then revealed he didn't go crazy with the ink until four or five years ago. The Blue Chips rapper also showed off one of his newest pieces—a giant skull piece on the back of his head.
Action also revealed one of his favorite pieces: MLB legend Barry Bonds' stats from his famous 2011 season. According to Bronson, the numbers motivate him to work hard. "It's just in remembrance of me always having to be a beast," he said.
The rapper then discussed a tattoo on his forearm that he hated, so he got it covered up with a gorilla. "That's how much I hated it; that I threw a gorilla's face on my wrist," the MC laughingly said.
It's been nearly a year since Bronson dropped his Blue Chips 7000 project, but the rapper has remained busy, linking up with The Alchemist for the producer's "The Hopeless Romantic" song. The track appears on Alchemist's Lunch Meat EP, which also includes guest appearances from Roc Marciano, Westside Gunn, Conway, Styles P and Benny The Butcher.
