Lil Pump is the latest artist to pay tribute to the life of XXXTentacion with some fresh ink on his body. The South Florida native posted footage to his Instagram Story on Sunday (Aug. 12) of the 17-year-old impressively giving himself a tattoo to honor his fallen friend. 

The finished body art reads "LLJ," which is an acronym short for "Long Live Jahseh," X's legal first name. While the "Gucci Gang" rapper focused in on perfecting the tattoo on his upper left arm, the slain rapper's harrowing "Moonlight" boomed in the background. Denzel Curry, Wifisfuneral, and Lil Xan all previously got XXXTentacion-inspired ink after his murder in June.

Earlier this month (Aug. 1), Lil Pump teased an unreleased collaboration with XXXTentacion and Rio Santana, who confirmed ownership of the forthcoming record. It's still unknown if "Arms Around You" will appear on X's posthumous work or Santana's. All four suspects allegedly involved with carrying out X's murder have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery.

Check out Lil Pump's fresh ink below.
