Method Man Inks Tattoo Artist With Wu-Tang Logo — Video
Method Man is a tattoo enthusiast, having inked much of his body with artwork that includes an ambigram of “life-death,” among others. Earlier this week, the Wu-Tang Clan affiliate made an appearance on an episode of ‘NY Ink,’ where he received a tattoo from resident artist Tommy Montoya.
“I want an official Wu-Tang killer bee,” the ‘Tical’ rapper said in the June 23 ‘Blood Is Thicker Than Ink’ episode, which aired on TLC. As Montoya took out his tattoo gun and went to work on Meth’s left forearm, he informed the veteran rhymer of his iconic status. “You’re one of the greats, bro,” Montoya told him. “You did to rap what the Beatles did to their music.”
Meth went on to discuss the current state of hip-hop — he’s not a fan, apparently — and also took on the role of tattoo artist himself. At Montoya’s request, the ‘Triumph’ lyricist inked him with a “little Wu-Tang tat.”
