West Coast rapper Game has weighed in on Gucci Mane's recent Internet-blazing ice cream face tattoo which took over blogs and music sites earlier this month.
From Game's eyes, Gucci's stand-out artwork takes some pressure off his own face ink.
"I seen Gucci's new face tat and as soon I did, I thought 'finally they can get off me about his butterfly/star/LA sh*t.' That's what I thought. But you know what man, I don't give a f*ck about what they say about anybody, a muthaf*cka could tattoo a butterfly, ice cream cone, apple pie on their cheek. Bottom-line, if you know Gucci, you know he's real. He been on trial for his life and all of that. He bodied people. So he could tattoo a f*ckin' tampon on his face for all I care. You can't say he's buster or whatever. And me I done been shot, stole sh*t, robbed people, everyth-f*ckin'-thing you can think of. Tattoos don't mean sh*t, they ain't nothing but good art." (VIBE)
Earlier this month, Gucci's friend/rapper Waka Flocka Flame said he would not follow in his tatted footsteps.
"Like I just said, eh, we some wild dudes, [laughs]" Waka told radio host Bootleg Kev when asked about Gucci Mane's ice cream face tattoo. "Ain't no telling what [we] gonna do, man. [laughs] Nah, [no Fozzy Bear on my face]. Never. I ain't touching my face." (Bootleg Kev)
Photos of the rapper's new look landed online around mid-January.
SO ICEY! Gucci Mane hopped up out of rehab/mental facility a couple days ago. And he may need to demand a refund. Dude visited Tenth Street Tattoo in Atlanta today. And got this brand new little nugget of classiness--a big *ss ice cream cone complete with color, 3 scoops and the word "Brrr"--covering his whole right facial cheek. Wow. Tattoo artist and owner of the shop, Shane Willoughby, is the artist behind Gucci's newest tattoo addition. And the master piercer in the shop--Jason Murray--tweeted the pics. (The YBF)
After the images leaked, Gucci's representative confirmed the tattoo's authenticity.
Rapper Gucci Mane, 30, revealed his latest tattoo today (January 13)--an ice cream cone located on his right cheek--causing many fans to question the reasoning behind the artwork. Kali Bowyer, Gucci's spokesperson, spoke to Rolling Stone about the meaning of the image. "It's a reminder to fans of how he chooses to live his life," she said. "Cool as ice. As in 'I'm so icy, I'll make ya say Brr.'" Bowyer also said the design was inspired by a medallion that Gucci has worn for years. (XXL Mag)
