Who’s more confused than Lloyd‘s scalp? Nobody.
Within the past 8 months, Lloyd’s scalp has flown free with long frizzy fabio curls. It has been bound and stretched with tiny braids. It has been trimmed down to a cushy carpet. And now…it’s been partially shaved down and injected with ink. Lots of it!
In promotion of his new King of Hearts album (iTunes link), Lloyd tattooed and enormous guns and roses motif on his head down in New Orleans. To be fair…in comparison to most of the head and face tattoos that we’ve seen in hip hop circles, Lloyd’s is actually not that horrible.
But are we getting to the point where above the neck tattoos will actual get mainstream? I used to think neck tatts were extreme, but now…not so much. Every barista at the local espresso bar has one. (male and female) Maybe soon, a face tatt will no longer represent: ‘hello, I am either an ax murderers, boardwalk entertainer, or a runway fashion model.’
UPDATE: Miguel tweeted “Imitation is the Highest form of Flattery. Shout to LLoyd.” rawr! cat scratch!
