50 Cent Dismisses Facial Ink Hype.

I am personally not feeling the entire tattoo to  the face thing, although there are plenty artist out there that do. Rapper 50 cent has decided to speak against the facial tattoo deal.

While not singling out Gucci, 50 said face tattoos show a rapper’s limits and lack of a business mentality. “That’s the craziest thing,” 50 explained in an interview. “Not necessarily Gucci, but to tattoo your face says that there’s not a possibility that you can actually walk into a legitimate establishment without makeup covering your face every day. That does not work. It creates a separation. It says, ‘I’m an artist.’ That’s it. That’s the statement you make when you go and tattoo your face…But know that the public will not have interest in you as an artist for life. You have to be phenomenal. Talk to the best that do it and they will tell you that it will take more than you being an artist. It takes marketing, maneuvering to generate for that long. When you got 40 year-old rappers in the game, those guys have maneuvered and survived.” (VIBE)

While a very crafty business man, he really hit it on the nail with this one. Maybe these artist and celebrities will realize that tattoos are for the body and not the face.
