Hip hop's super producer admits he was "young and dumb" when he covered a good portion of his body in ink art. "I ended up getting them as fast as I could, just going through a crazy rebellious phase," he says, adding that he's in the process of having them removed. But the N.E.R.D. front-man is trying a revolutionary new method of getting rid of his ink, involving putting new skin over his tattoos. "You give them a sample of your skin, which they replicate." The new skin is then sewn over the old, "like a skin graft."
