Saturday, Mar 16, 2013 2:25PM
West Coast rapper Game is far from done with adding more ink to his body, as reports reveal his plans to pay homage to late human rights activist Malcolm X and boxing legend Muhammad Ali next.
According to tattoo artist Carlos Macedo, he is working on the two African American icons for the Black Wall Street leader.
"I'm working on a portrait of Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X for Game," Macedo told Radio.com. "He wanted the two to interact but he's running out of room. He has to work with what he has." The Ali tattoo is partly inked on his inner arm and Malcolm X's image is on the back of his arm waiting to be filled in. "Those tattoos are in real painful areas," Macedo explained. "I try not to put him in a bunch of pain in one session. With the Obama tattoo, he wanted it all finished at once." (News.Radio)
Recently, Game revealed the current working of his President Barack Obama chest tat.
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)
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 ink job 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)
