Lil Wayne Gets ‘Baked’ Tattoo on Forehead
Lil Wayne wasn’t joking when he said he was seriously committed to skateboarding. A new photo shows the rapper with the word “BAKED” inked across his forehead, in honor of his skate company, Baker Skateboards.
In the pic, Tunechi sticks out his tongue and closes his eyes while the letters B-A-K-E-D are on full display inside square blocks on his forehead. We’ll let you decide whether you think “baked” has another special meaning for Wayne beyond just the skate company name.
Weezy already had teardrop tats under his eyes, stars on his left temple, the word TUNE near his ear, and other small symbols around his eyes and neck, but adding a word in the middle of his forehead is a big step. We hope he doesn’t regret the decision, much like Gucci Mane apparently regrets his ice cream cone face tattoo.
In August, Wayne admitted skating was more important than rapping for him right now. “I picked up the skateboard and I thought it would be a hobby, but it’s a lifestyle. You have to be fully committed,” he said. “In order to be fully committed, you have to live that lifestyle. What these young kids say right now, ‘You have to be about that life.’ I guess I’m about that life. It’s kinda of putting rap on the back burner, that’s all. Rap is a taking backseat to skating.”
