The hip hop game usually has various trends spawning and waning quite regularly - however, face tattoos have remained very much on trend!

The latest rapper who jumped on this trend is Saudi. The talented artist opened a window to his scores of fans on Instagram - to a tattoo session, whereby a part of his face was being inked out. It was quite a task to make out of Saudi's tattoo.

However, upon close Introspection, it's likely to be an anchor.
The Make You Proud hit-maker didn't only embellish his face but also his knuckles -  a new tattoo written 'Monopoly'.

LusiCartel: ''Gogo wont be happy about this one.''

Cruzi_M: ''MONOPOLY (LIFE) 🔥''

GKDolo: ''Mr rockstar with new tatto real dope.''

The face tattoo trend might have blown up a little too late on our shores,  hence the American entertainment music scene, especially hip hop has BEEN riding high on getting their faces all tattooed up!

Rappers such as, Lil Wayne and Kevin Gates have various parts of their bodies tattooed up, including their faces!

Lil Wayne probably popularised the tear drop tattoo, inked right below one's eye.

A large number of South African entertainers would agree that they usually take a page out, from their American counterparts - with regards to trend references.

Saudi's close music collaborator Emtee, is another South African rapper, who has endured or enjoyed getting a face tattoo!

The general public might be a lot more accepting to these extremes, from their favourite artists', however it wasn't always like that for others.

When Emtee unveiled his famous tear drop tattoo on his face, many of his fans heavily judged him.

Fellow rapper, AKA dropped his two cents by stating that there shouldn't be this much backlash on Emtee's new tattoo because it's HIS face and can actually decide which parts of his body to have a tattoo on!
