Several athletes and hip-hop artists have honored the late Kobe Bryant by commemorating the Lakers legend with Black Mamba-inspired tattoos. The Game added his name to the list Wednesday (Feb. 12), as the Compton native debuted a new face tattoo paying tribute to the early Kobe days.
The fresh ink features a sideways black number eight, connected inside Bryant’s autograph to form a larger infinity symbol above Game’s left eyebrow. “F O R E V E R,” the rapper captioned the photo. Bryant donned No. 8 from 1996 until the 2006 season, when he switched to No. 24.
2 Chainz recently memorialized Kobe by getting a No. 2 on one knee with the No. 4 on the inside of his other to honor Kobe’s other jersey number.
Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna will be honored with a public memorial at Staples Center on Feb. 24.
