Young Thug Honors Gucci Mane by Getting an Ice Cream Cone Tattoo on His Face
Regardless of how you feel about Young Thug as an artist, what you can't deny is the fact that he obviously has a flair for the dramatic. His actions and statements -- wearing nail polish or naming his mixtapes after Lil Wayne's album -- have been both unpredictable and perplexing in nature. Well, Young Thug has outdone himself yet again and this time, he's using ink to make a statement via his latest tattoo.
A longtime fan of fellow Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane, Young Thug has never been slow to sing the praises of Mr. LaFlare. But while leading chants of #FreeGuwop at his live shows and paying his respects to Gucci Mane is pretty standard for any young rapster out of the ATL, Thugger took paying homage to a whole 'nother level by getting a tattoo of an ice cream cone on his face, almost identical to the one that Gucci Mane revealed to the world a few years ago. The only difference between the two "works of art" is that Gucci's is on his right cheek while Thugger's replica is on the left.
The tattoo may be just a temporary one, as the Fader has speculated, but we do know Thug is not shy about showing off his new tat. The rapper shared a photo of himself with the new ink in a few Instagram photos, one with the caption, "#FreeGuwop I LOVE AND MISS U!!” and the other reading, "#FreeGuwop I REALLY LOVE AND MISS U…..!"
Check out Young Thug's Instagram page over the next week to find out if this is a permanent tattoo or just a temporary homage to Gucci Mane. It's apparent Thug is one of many looking forward to Gucci Mane's release from prison in 2016.
