A question that always crosses my mind whenever I see a picture of Lil’ Wayne (especially a shirtless picture) is “how many tattoos does this dude have anyway?” The sad realization that I have recently come to, is that no one really knows. In fact, I doubt even Lil’ Wayne himself has been able to keep count of all his body art. On the bright side, however, I did manage to dig up some dirt and find out a little bit more about Lil’ Wayne’s tattoos.
Wayne is not one to shy away from face and neck tattoos (like the average human being would). Devoting himself to his music, Lil Wayne tattooed “I Am Music” in red letters above his right eyebrow. His other face tattoos are the fleur-de-lis which is the symbol on the flag of his hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. The teardrops just under Lil Wayne’s eye traditionally has gang-related roots, but now-a-days it’s hard to tell what they signify, but there is speculation that they symbolize the people that have been killed by his family members.
Weezy has a prayer tattooed on the right side of his back.
On his eyelids, Lil Wayne has the words “Fear God” tattooed on them (that must’ve hurt!). In between his eyes on his temple is the letter “C” which is the first initial of his mother’s name (Cita) and, of course, his last name Carter.
The large bold numbers on Lil Wayne’s are the digits that make up his birth date — September 27, 1982.
