The Game Gets Nelson Mandela Tattoo


By now you should know that Compton rapper The Game has no problem getting fame figures tattooed on his body. Jayceon Taylor’s latest ink is of the late Nelson Mandela.

Nelson Mandela died on December 5 at the age of 95. Today (December 9), The Game took to Instagram to reveal his latest body ink homage. “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,” read the caption of the shared pic.

According to Nikko Hurtado, who owns the Black Anchor shop in Hesperia, Ca., the tattoo is placed near the Game’s armpit and joins previous images on the rapper’s body that include Barack Obama as well as Trayvon Martin and Nate Dogg.

    The Game has done some wonderfull things this year especially when it comes to helping those in need but now it’s getting to the point that everything he does it has to be made public it’s nothing wrong with helping others but must it be made known everytime he does so why not do these things quietly because people will start to beleive that you are doing it for attention and not from the heart and now the Nelson Mandela tattoo my question is why wait until Mr. Mandela is dead to get a tattoo of him why didn’t he do this years earlier again is this from his heart or simply for attention just saying
