Liking ice cream so much that you'll eat it for dinner, spit a few rhymes about it and even name a clothing line after the chilly dessert is one thing. But tattooing a sugar cone with three scoops of vanilla-blueberry ice cream on your right cheek is something totally different. The crazy thing is, a new face tattoo, even one of an ice cream cone, isn't a huge surprise when it shows up on the cheek of Gucci Mane, who's fresh out of the mental institution.
Gucci's already decked out his arms, chest, back, stomach, hands and neck. He's even taken the needle to his face a few times before. But this face tat takes the cak … er … icecream.
It's unclear why Gucci Mane opted to get the overflowing cone permanently emblazoned on his cheek, but there are always theories:
1. It's nonstop, no fail advertising for his record label So Icey. Even though a blue slushie or a solid ice cube would've done the trick too.
2. Since he's a man who knows how to accessorize and does it so wonderfully, the new ink could allow him to wear pastels more often, not to mention that "iced-out" cone he likes to dangle from his neck.
3. Maybe ice cream was his last meal at the mental house just before he stopped by Tenth Street Tattoo in Atlanta. Once there, it was the first thing he could think of.
4. The most likely reason for Gucci to get the tattoo though? It backs up his "Special Plea of Mental Incompetency."
