Southern rapper Waka Flocka Flame has shared his reaction to friend/rapper Gucci Mane recently making headlines for getting a triple-scoop ice cream cone tattooed on his face.
Although Waka shares a close friendship with Gucci, he felt that facial tattoos were a bad idea.
“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)
Earlier this month, tattoo artist Shane Willoughby spoke on his experience permanently inking the embattled star.
“I was [hesitant] like ‘Are you sure you want to put that much [ink] in that area?,'” says Shane Willoughby who gave Gucci his frosty tattoo at ATL’s Tenth Street Tattoo. “He came straight to the counter and that’s where he pointed…I won’t tattoo anybody if their [drunk] or high because I can’t stand the smell of weed…[Gucci] seemed completely sober. He knew what he was doing.” (VIBE)
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)
Outside of facial tats, Waka and Gucci are reportedly in talks to launch a new reality television series.
The yet to be titled program will give viewers an intimate look at the behind-the-scene lives of two of rap’s biggest names. “We show everyday life. What we get into in studio and at our shows. We just ordinary people with a crazy rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle,” Gucci told RumorFix exclusively. “Because of the music we make, people think that’s what we do all the time — but we got a real family life. We got heart. We do a lot of things for the community and we love each other,” the Atlanta rapper continued. (RumorFix)
