Rap star The Game has paid tribute to the late Nelson Mandela by inking the image of the former South African leader on his side.
The 34-year-old posted a photo of the tattoo to his instagram Tuesday with 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.”
The tattoo is just one of many that The Game – a.k.a. Jayceon Terrell Taylor – has had inked in memory of a lost idol. He also has tattoos of the late rapper Eazy-E on his right forearm, Tupac Shakur as an angel on his shoulder, and shooting victim Trayvon Martin in his hoodie on his leg.
