Lil Uzi Vert is one of the most unique rappers out right now. One of the ways Uzi shows off their creativity is through body art. Indeed, with more than 50 tats on his body, Uzi easily ranks as one of the most inked-up rappers today. However, their artwork has often proved controversial in the past. Now, the 27-year-old is showing off their newest ink. Once again, the tattoo is raising eyebrows with fans.
A Twitter user named Uziawge posted a photo of the tattoo. The tat is located on Uzi's tongue and features an image of an upside-down cross. Moreover, Uzi previously revealed a similar tattoo on his forehead. However. this tattoo is difficult to clearly make out in the video. Additionally, the tweet clips GangaTattoo, who likely did the tattoo. This is the same artist who performed Uzi's incredible full-body tat. That piece took more than 16 hours to complete and cost Uzi a cool $100,000.
Uzi's Newest Ink Causes Controversy
Although some fans were quick to praise the bold new artwork, others have taken offense to what they consider Satanic themes. Some comments have called the artwork blasphemous. Moreover, former Northern Illinois football player Boomer Mays responded to the photo by tweeting "The devil is hard at work." Additionally, the tattoo has further fueled conspiracy theories against Uzi. Like many musicians, Uzi has been accused by conspiracy theorists of selling his soul to become famous. Additionally, Uzi has been accused of using Satanic themes in his music. However, the Philadelphia rapper has repeatedly denied this.
Uzi has been open about their love of tattoos over the years. They famously got matching tattoos with Steve Lacy and Kanye West. Although their initial concern was only getting ink, they quickly grew an interest in creating tattoos. Subsequently, Uzi was shown giving a fan a tattoo of an anarchy symbol last week. Meanwhile, fans of Uzi are eagerly awaiting the release of his new album The Pink Tape. Initially, the album was slated to be released last December. However, the project has been repeatedly delayed. Uzi says the project is currently in its final stages. We can't wait for him to show off his new music along with his artwork.
