Lil Uzi Vert is back at it with another expression of his creative spirit. The “Baby Pluto” rapper recently got a tattoo on his tongue, according to photos recently released on social media. In one picture, Uzi is captured amid the process of tattooing. In a second photo, he poses with his tongue out, allowing fans to see the end result. The image also features the forehead diamond that made Uzi a trending topic almost immediately after he debuted it to the world.
At the time, the Philly rapper hinted that his inspiration for the piercing came from non other than Lil B.
His jeweler added that Uzi’s decision to place a diamond on his forehead came years after he purchased the $24,000 gem from him.
While it’s clear that Uzi was not the first to rock a forehead gem, his friend and Elon Musk’s girlfriend, Grimes, claimed that the Philly emcee was in the process of purchasing a planet — an accomplishment that she said would make him “the first human to legally own a planet.”
Moments later, however, Soulja Boy refuted Grimes’ claim, teasing that he was once again the “first rapper” to mark an accomplishment.
“Man I been did that,” said Big Draco. “I was the first rapper to own a planet lol Uzi late.”
The photos of Uzi’s new tattoo come alongside tweets about his desire to create. “OMG I love that I’m crazy,” he tweeted on Sunday (July 26). “My brain be itching. I JUST WANNA RAGE.”
Aside from his unique tattoo and piercing, Lil Uzi also channels his creativity into his music. He was one of the many performers to hit the Rolling Loud Miami stage over the weekend and turn up with his fans.
