Lil Wayne has been steadily covering his body with tattoos over the years, most recently ringing in the New Year by getting some ink on his face.
The tat pays homage to skateboarding company Baker Skateboards, which uses the design as its logo. Wayne has been an avid skateboarding fan over the past few years, most recently stating that he would put Rap on the backburner for the sport.
“I picked up the skateboard and I thought it would be a hobby, but it’s a lifestyle. You have to be fully committed. In order to be fully committed, you have to live that lifestyle. What these young kids say right now, you have to be about that life. I guess I’m about that life,” he said. “It’s kinda putting rap on the backburner, that’s all. Rap is a taking backseat to skating. That’s alright. But I kind of feel I deserve that. … I think fans deserve some peace from me.”
