Lil Wayne Birthday: Tattoo Artist Draws 10 Tattoos for Rapper, Fans Choose ‘Gift’ — Photos
Lil Wayne has left his 20s behind. The rapper turns 30 years old today with a wealth of accomplishments to be proud of. This week alone, Weezy opened the Trukstop Skate Park in his hometown of New Orleans and topped Elvis Presley’s Billboard chart record for most entries on the Hot 100. Not too bad for the days leading up to the big 3-0.
To commemorate the occasion, The BoomBox tapped L.A. tattoo artist Corina “Coco” Cline to create 10 new tattoos for Tha Carter IV MC. With ink already covering a majority of Wayne’s body, adding another piece of permanent art can’t hurt. Coco, who sets up shop on the West Coast at La Rue Tattoo, relied on her knowledge as a Lil Wayne fan when designing the perfect new tattoo for him. Birdman, Nicki Minaj and his lyrics are all a part of the picture. Coco also gives a hilarious explanation for designing each one.
Take a closer look at the 10 tattoos inspired by Mr. Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., below. Then vote for which one he should gift himself with to celebrate his 30th birthday. Party on, Wayne!
