Game Gets Nelson Mandela Tattoo

Game is putting his love for Nelson Mandela in ink. The rapper got a huge tattoo of the South African freedom fighter on his arm in light of Mandela’s death.

The intricate piece features Mandela in jail looking solemnly through the prison bars.

“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,” Game shared on Instagram.

The impressive piece came at the price of pain. California tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado added, “#NelsonMandela Tattoo collector @thedocumentary In the arm pit area! Ouch.”

Game is just one of the many artists who have paid tribute to the South African leader. R. Kelly prepared a musical tribute while Kanye West took to Twitter to share his love and respect.
