Young Thug Gets the Same Ice Cream Cone Face Tattoo as Gucci Mane
Young Thug got a new tattoo over the weekend to pay homage to one of his idols, Gucci Mane. We have all seen Gucci's infamous ice cream cone tattoo on his face. Now YT has done the same. He hopped on Instagram to share photos of his new ink yesterday (May 31). In both posts, Thugger says he loves and misses his fellow Atlanta rapper, who is currently service a three-year sentence in prison.
The new ink is on his left cheek and is identical in design to the one Guwop has on his right. The big difference is that Thugga's tat is smaller than Gucci Mane's. However there are reports circulating claiming that Thug's tattoo could be temporary. Photographer Cam Kirk held a pop-up photography exhibit/haunted house in honor of Gucci Mane that opened on May 30 in Atlanta and temporary ice cream cone tattoos were at the event. Fader reports that Young Thug was present at the exhibit.
Aside from getting new tattoos, Young Thug may also be tied to Lil Wayne's tour bus shooting back in April. Jimmy Carlton Winfrey, a suspect in custody who allegedly acts as YT's road manager, was trying to move up the ladder as a Blood by "committing a high profile shooting of a rival rap artist."
