Article: Hip Hop tattoo storm lead to screaming tattoo craze by ader zhang


Hip hop tattoos lead to a big part of today’s screaming tattoo craze that is spreading among teenagers and youngsters of the hip hop addicts. The main reason why Hip hop tattoo becomes the world top fashion craze trend is that these tattoos are sported by many famous celebrities in the pop music industry. Youngsters copy the tattoos made on the body of their favorite rappers and hip hop artists. Some wear these tattoos just for the sake of fashion, whereas others have a specific meaning related to their tattoos.

However, in the past time when the Rock & Roll occupied the whole world music field, hip hop was not appreciated by tattoo craze .Some people claim tattoos are being marketed primarily to a white Rock & Roll generation. Hip hop and R&B artists – from 50 Cent to Eminem – have donned elaborate, detailed and beautiful tattoos even though tattoos are primarily associated with rock and bikers.

Then later, more and more contemporary musicians from heavy metal bands to hip hop artists and R&B artists have all gotten in on the act ; more and more people are getting tattoos simply because they idolize certain rappers or R&B artists. Once there is an famous tattoo artist said, “people want tattoos because they see them on rappers and R&B artists and figure it will look as good on them”.

While famous tattoos on Hollywood starlets are undeniably hot, we suspect there may be more meaning on the tattooed rappers strutting down the same streets. Check out the top ten most important tattoos in rap music.

50 Cent

50’s back tattoo is clear evidence of the over-the-top opinion he has of himself. He has his moniker tattooed the size of a Jansport backpack covering his entire back. This tattoo design appropriately fits a guy who just wants to get rich or die tryin’.

The Game has an LA tattoo just below his right eye, and if you actually listen to any of his music for about two minutes

Lil Wayne
Face with “Fear God” on his eyelids and a “C” in between his eyes which is the first letter of his last name and the first letter of his mothers name, Cita. It could also be “of” which would make “Fear of God”.

Eminem
30 years from now, no other rapper’s lyrics will be studied more than the words put forth by Marshall Mathers. His words terrified the masses, and his exit from the game has left most fans and critics puzzled and yearning for more material. The reason for his absence can be seen on his right shoulder. There, you can find a picture of his beautiful little girl, Hayley Jade outlined with roses.

Eve
One of the things that Eve is best known for outside of her music is for the set of paw print tattoos placed unconventionally, and prominently, on both breasts.

Tattooing is becoming as much a part of hip-hop culture which is in turn slowly becoming part of mainstream culture and the MTV generation. Definitely, it will lead to the demise of negative stereotypes associated with both tattoos and hip hop culture.
