Compton rapper, The Game has a brand new Mandela tattoo to his side as tribute to the fallen anti-Apartheid icon. The star, who already has pictures of Barack Obama and Trayvon Martin printed on his body, jumped on Instagram yesterday to show off his new 7-hour ink, a sizable tattoo to Mandela.
The rapper’s body is slowly but surely becoming a tribute collage and now that one of the world’s greatest black heros is gone, The Game believes a lasting ink is best for remembrance. He wrote,
"The finished “Nelson Mandela” lookin out of the prison bars by @NikkoHurtado done on my side. 7 hour sitting…."
"Few more hours to tie in the tats around it & we solid. #NelsonMandela #RIP #Legend #Leader #Freedom #Peace #Equality #Tattoos #SouthAfrica."
The creator of Game’s tats also hopped on the wagon to back his client’s decision to ink Madiba to his skin forever. He posted,
"A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don’t have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed. #NelsonMandela"
What do you guys think of this move, solid or dumb?
