Tupac Covers Urban Ink Magazine

Continuing Hip-Hop’s “Tupac Back” theme for 2011, tattoo magazine Urban Ink decided to honor the life and tattoos of Tupac Shakur with the cover of their latest magazine.

In a statement from Urban Ink:

During his short time with us, 2Pac inspired an entire generation—and UI linked up with some of those who felt his influence to chop it up about the legend and his ink.

Artists such as Lloyd Banks, Nipsey Hussle, The Game and others share their thoughts on Pac and his outspoken ink.

Also, UI managed to hunt down an old-school ink slinger who is credited around his parts for tattooing some of 2Pac’s most infamous tattoos in the early ‘90s.

Another special feature is that of Pac’s “closest roaddogz,” the Outlawz—who, in an exclusive interview, sat down with UI to discuss their times with Pac, and share some never before told stories on Pac’s tattoo endeavors.

The issue also features newly signed Bad Boy signed Machine Gun Kelly, Young Money artist Cory Gunz and a dedication to the tattooed men and women of the United States Armed Forces.
