West Coast rapper Game appears far from slowing down his current tattoo frenzy, adding a very noticeable President Barack Obama ink job right below his chest.
Photos of the Black Wall Street leader's newest tat have started circulating online.
The Game is happy to have a black president. So happy in fact that he decided to get a portrait of President Barack Obama's mug tattooed directly on his abs. I myself wouldn't ever get a tattoo like this, but I guess Game is just a little more patriotic than I am. Check out a video of Game getting the current president tattooed right below his pecks after the break. (Rap Dose)
Last fall, Game spoke up on his respect toward President Obama, even suggesting the chief executive has swag.
"I've seen the debate: words were fumbled, certain topics weren't covered correctly," he told CBS Local. "But he's Obama. He probably was listening to Jay-Z before he got up there and was a little bit in the zone and couldn't get it together. But I love Obama he got my vote still. ... Let me tell you something, Obama could have comeoout and said his A-B-Cs in the debate and he would have gotten my vote. I like Obama, he's cool he got swag and that's my president. Mitt Romney is a Republican. I'm not down with anything they stand for. Not to diss anybody else's beliefs and what their vote is but I like Obama. He can't do me no wrong." (CBS Local)
A few weeks ago, the West Coast rapper put rap mentor Dr. Dre's first solo album, The Chronic, onto his body.
Let's clarify that Game got the cover of the landmark album "The Chronic" inked on his torso. However, that's still a photo of Dr. Dre. Game went to reality star/tattoo artist Kat Von D for the homage to his mentor. While he was there, Game also got a tattoo on his back. The final product known as the back tatt wasn't shown, but it does look like it hurt. Besides allowing Kat Von d to tattoo him on the same day, Game went and saw his other favorite tattoo specialist Peter Koskela for a portrait of his debut "The Documentary" album cover. "3rd tattoo of the day..... This one by the homie @petertattooist might be my favorite thus far..... #TheDocumentary album with my oldest son @harlemcarontaylor on the cover... #CLASSIC !!!!!!!" Game posted on Twitter. (The Urban Daily)
The tat came shortly after he paid homage to late TLC member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes.
Rapper The Game is showing his respects to a fallen R&B icon with some permanent ink. No, it's not Aaliyah this time--well, not yet. Check out his new Dia' De Los Muertos-inspired tattoo of the departed Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, which pays tribute to both the fallen TLC member & the mexican holiday in a pretty dope way. "Got a Dia' De Los Muertos version of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes tatted on the left side of my ribs by @petertattooist ... Gettin a Dia' De Los Muertos version of Aaliyah on the right side of my ribs next...... 2 rib tats in one day.... #BitchImThuggin Pain.... Aint nobody got time for that ha ha ha......" (VIBE)
