Tagging celebrity tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado and LA’s Black Anchor tattoo shop, The Game took to social media to show off his giant new chest tattoo that honored of his fallen friend. The rapper posted an Instagram story getting the ink in real time, using the hashtag #LongLiveNip to commemorate the sizeable skin portrait of his musical contemporary.
