Lil Wayne Explains His Tattoo Addiction And Being Like 2 Pac [Video]
Lil Wayne released a video talking about his past tendencies and habits, including the motivation behind the tattoos across his body. Weezy said he got his first tattoo while still a teenager in honor of his late father. Check out the full video below and see what Wayne says about the passing of Apple Co-Founder Steve Jobs.
“I have no problem with people going and getting a billion tattoos. But why are you doing it? I know my first tattoo I got, I got because my dad died. I was 14 years old and I knew, not for nothing, God forgive me, I did want to represent my dad in a way but I knew that, ‘Man, I could get my first tattoo at 14 if I asked my mom, ‘Can I go get my dad’s name?’ She’s not gonna be against that.'”
“The next tattoo that I got said ‘Original Hot Boy’ with a star. Then I went and got my tat across my stomach ’cause I wanted to be like Tupac. I got my stomach tattoo because I wanted to be like Tupac and at the time, I would tell the tattoo dude that’s why I was getting it.”
