The new ink was placed on the Game’s arm and includes a portrait of Mandela in jail looking through prison bars. The piece was not an easy feat. In fact, the 34-year-old rapper wrote the caption:
“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”
This is not the first commemorative piece that the rapper has tatted on his body. Last August, the “West Side Story” emcee took to Instagram to unveil his tattoo of slain teen Trayvon Martin.
Talk about paying respect. We certainly can dig it.
