The reality star wants to honor Nipsey's legacy.
Friends and fans of Nipsey Hussle are paying homage to the slain rapper by getting tattoos of his image. Rick Ross got Nipsey's face inked on his arm, while Cleveland Cavaliers star J.R. Smith shared his ultrarealistic Nipsey tattoo with his Instagram followers. Tattooists are handling the influx of ink related to the South Central rapper with ease, and VH1 reality star Ceaser Emanuel is making sure people know that his shop is open to anyone who is looking to follow the trend.
The Black Ink Crew tattoo shop owner took to Instagram to share his thoughts about the positive influence that Nip was for the culture. Emanuel shared a photo of the rapper that says "All Nipsey Inspired Tattoos Free" and he wrote this is a special that will go on forever. "The world we live in is getting scarier by the day," Emanuel wrote. "Over the weekend we have lost a loved one; #NipseyHussle. His sudden passing has shock all of us... Nipsey touched a lot of souls and hearts, he was an inspirational and honorable hero and leader."
"He will be truly missed and dearly loved by all of us, but his legacy will still live in all of our hearts," he continued. "In honor of the Young Black role model, Black Ink wants to express our condolences by giving out free tattoos that represents and honors this astonishing icon. #blackinkcrew THIS SPECIAL NEVER ENDS...THIS IS FOREVER."
