Tattoos in Hip-Hop are usually stereotyped to be for a certain type of rapper for some strange reason. Many are surprised when they find out that Kendrick Lamar has multiple tattoos. For years, one of those has been his “Hustle like you broke” ink on his right forearm but as of last month, the rapper no longer has the tattoo.
Artist Davi Escobar took to Instagram to share photos of the work he did on Kendrick’s arm. The old one is almost completely covered. He revealed that in total, it took sixteen hours over the course of two days.
Below you can check out a picture of the old tattoo and the new one. What do you think?
