Remember the time when tribal tattoos were a fad? After many years it’s safe to say that the trend is over, but Game is on a wave all of his own these days, tatting fellow musicians all over himself. Recently, with the help of tattoo artists Kat Von D and Peter Koskela, the Compton rapper tattooed the album artwork of both Dr.Dre’s The Chronic and his own 2005 debut album The Documentary.
One of Game’s tweets read: “Gettin ‘THE CHRONIC’ album tatted on the stomach… OUCH ! But when I think about what this album did for my city… The pain disappears. That’s Life.”
Just a few weeks ago the rapper had “Compton” tattooed across his stomach, paying homage to the city that inspired him throughout his music career. The Game is also known for giving tribute to artists whose lives have influenced the music industry, some of them being Easy E, Big Pun, Tupac and most recently Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
Other tattoos include his shoe line “The Hurricanes,” his G-Unot movement, the Converse emblem, the L.A logo and even a butterfly.
With barely any room left, Game keeps adding on to his countless number of tattoos.
