Aw! Did Gucci Mane let his little nephew scribble a three-scoop ice cream cone on his cheek with magic markers? That’s so cute.
Oh, wait. No, that’s Gucci Mane’s new face tattoo.
I’ve heard about teardrop tattoos, which according to the site Inked Blog originated in prison as a way to tally the number of people an inmate has killed, and has since evolved to also represent grief for the loss of loved ones. I like the latter meaning. An expression of grief seems like a reason to permanently ink-stain your face. But a dessert-themed, colored face tattoo? Even Lil Wayne’s glow-in-the-dark stars and lips which can’t be seen in daylight seem extreme to me.
On the other hand, ice cream is really good! And sometimes when you really love something you want to shout its name from a mountain top and wear it on your face. For some dudes that’s a new girlfriend. For Gucci Mane maybe it’s lightning bolt flavored ice cream.
In the immortal words of Rihanna and T.I., you gotta “just live your life.”
