Since The Game's no stranger to permanent ink stains, we asked the West Coast MC, who's famously known for having over 100 markings, to educate us on the science and biology of tats.

Since the rapper has a tattoo on nearly every part of his body, including the L.A. logo under his right eye and a teardrop on the side of his left eye, the Game is practically an expert on the subject. Here's the Game's advice on tattoo placement:

Best Body Part

The forearm: This is a good spot because it doesn't hurt and it's a great place to show off a tat. The best place to get a tat has to do with the skin and location. Tender skin hurts like a b----. Tough skin doesn't hurt that much.

Bicep: Also a good spot because there isn't much pain and when you wear a "wife beater" they look dope.

Back of the neck: Again... not a lot of pain.

Worst Body Part

The hand: Hurts like hell! There is no fat and not a lot of muscle so it really hurts.

The face: Very painful location and once you get a tat on your face there ain't no hiding it!

The Game's new album, 'L.A.X.' is in stores now. Buy it on iTunes.
