The Game Gets Inked With Massive Nipsey Hussle Chest Tattoo

The Game took to social media to show off a giant new chest tattoo in honor of his late friend Nipsey Hussle.

Tagging celebrity tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado and LA’s Black Anchor tattoo shop, the rapper posted an Instagram story getting the ink in real time, using the hashtag #LongLiveNip to commemorate the giant portrait of his rap contemporary.

The Game got his new ink just one day before the jam-packed memorial service held at Staples Center in LA for the late rapper, who was gunned down outside his Marathon Clothing store on March 31 at the age of 33. The service featured performances by Marsha Ambrosius, Jhene Aiko and Anthony Hamilton, while Snoop Dogg, L.A. radio host Big Boy and Hussle's partner Lauren London were among those who gave tributes to the star.
