West Coast rapper Game has added some fresh ink to his body frame, getting a tattoo of late TLC group member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes placed onto his ribs.
Game revealed the new ink job over Instagram and said he would get late R&B singer Aaliyah placed onto his body next. 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……”
A few weeks ago, the West Coast rapper put on for his city with some serious body ink. How do you pay homage to the city that raised you? In the case of The Game, you get a tattoo across your stomach. The “Celebration” rapper went under the needle to show love to his native Compton. He endured the pain while tattoo artist Peter Koskela applied the word “Compton” in Old English font to his heavily-tatted body. “The stomach gotta be the most fu**ed up place to get tatted but I thugged it out,” wrote Game, who covered up a previous tattoo that said “Stretch.” He also added a second tattoo, but he’s yet to unveil it.
