The Compton rapper adds to his extensive tattoo collection.
The Game's tattoo game has been of public interest ever since he got that butterfly on his face (He later covered it up with the Dodgers logo and a red star; he said the original wasn’t accurate, it looked like "a m-otherf---in’ moth."). This time, it's the face of President Barack Obama that's been added to his collection.
Tattoo artist Carlos Macedo used the official White House portrait, reports The Source, and needled it in right at the peak of The Game’s abdominals, just above his inked ode to Compton.
Mount Rushmore it ain’t, but it is symbolic of what is arguably Obama’s most significant contribution to our nation’s collective history: “I like Obama. He’s cool, he got swag, and that’s my President,” The Game said during a pre-2012 election interview with CBS Local. To him, using of the visage of people he respects for his bodily artwork is not new. He also has one of Eazy-E, Tupac and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
And, the honor was recently reciprocated by one of his fans. “S/O one of my biggest fans @krissy_32_11 for gettin this pic of me tatted on her,” he tweeted along with a photo of a tattoo version of his face. “It really means alot to me that people admire me this much. It keeps me humbled & very appreciative of all I have.Thanks to all my loyal fans, it's you individually & collectively that keep me thuggin my way thru. El Juego."
