Twitter mocks rapper Lil Wayne’s new Arabic tattoo
The famed U.S. rapper got the phrase ‘momma’s boy’ inked in Arabic above his left eyebrow
American rapper Lil Wayne has decided to get some new ink on his face: this time, in Arabic.
Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., got some new art done above his left eyebrow, an Arabic phrase which translates in English to: “momma’s boy.”
The rapper also got the Eye of Providence, a symbol that appears on the one-dollar bill, on his chin. The Eye of Providence is usually associated with the mysterious and posssibly mythical Illuminati cabal.
“Couple pieces I did on my man Li’l Wayne,” Tattoo artist Spider wrote on his Instagram.
“Very hospitable, and professional client, thanks, Wayne!,” Spider added.
However, users of social networking switter were quick to mock the tattoo.
