Lil Pump Gives Himself a Tattoo in Memory of XXXTentacion
There's no lack of tattoos on Lil Pump but on Sunday (Aug. 12), the "Gucci Gang" rapper added some more ink to his body—a tribute to XXXTentacion following the late rapper's murder in June.
Pump, 17, hopped on social media to share a video on his Instagram Story, which features him tattooing "LLJ" on his arm as X's song "Moonlight" plays in the background. Using the tattoo machine himself, Pump can be seen filling in the letters on his arm, which stand for "Long Live Jahseh—XXXTentacion's real name, Jahseh Onfroy.
The "Esskeetit" artist becomes the latest rapper to get XXXTentacion-inspired ink, following in the footsteps of Wifisfuneral, Denzel Curry and Lil Xan. To honor the former 2017 XXL Freshman, Wifi got the word "Alone," as well as a broken heart under his eye. The ink is similar to tattoos that X had, which included "Alone" above his eyebrow and a broken heart under his eye.
Lil Xan went the minimalist route with his X tattoo tribute, getting eight black dots tatted down his nose. Xan's tattoo appears to be inspired by the dots that XXXTentacion had tattooed underneath and above his eye. "New Tattoo inspired by PRINCE X ! LEGENDS NEVER DIE AND ENERGY LIVES FOREVER REST IN PEACE TO X PEEP AND EVERYONE THATS AFTER," he wrote on Instagram.
As for Denzel Curry, the Florida artist added "Wing Ridden Angel" to his right forearm. The ink is similar to the same tattoo X had on his right arm. The words tattooed on both artists come from X's song of the same name.
