The Game has said in a recent interview regarding his tattoos that, “My tattoos are me and I am my tattoos”. He backs this statement up by getting his biggest accomplishments, his most admirable legends, and portraits of people that have past away that he doesn’t want to forget. The Game has had portraits of Michael Jordan, Eazy-E, Obama, and his homie Mike who past away from gang violence as well as the album covers to his own debut album “The Documentary” and Dr. Dre‘s 90’s classic “The Chronic”.
The Game‘s newest addition of ink into his skin are Nate Dogg and Trayvon Martin. Nate Dogg passed on March 5, 2011, but will never be forgotten for his numerous hits and trademark style singing he gained from Dr. Dres “The Chronic” album. The Game did four songs with Nate Dogg and also respected him with his music by releasing a tribute to Nate Dogg titled, “All Dogs Go To Heaven (R.I.P. Nate Dogg). Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old who was the victim of a fatal shooting on Feb. 26, 2012 in Sanford, FL. became one of the most controversial trials of the year after the shooter, George Zimmerman, was let walk free of jail time and conviction. The Game keeps this story alive with his ink tribute of the photo of Trayvon in his hoodie that protestors wore after the trial came to an unorthodox conclusion. Maybe The Game will also write a tribute song to Trayvon as he did Nate Dogg but we can only wait and see.
