Rappers With Face Tattoos, Final Thoughts
It makes sense that rap music would popularize something that primarily existed within gang and prison culture given that much of the music is tied in with these themes. The real question is, will face tattoos still be popular in 20 years?
Face tattoos almost seem to have the same taboo that tattoos in general had during the 1990s. Perhaps society with shift its perception once again, with face tattoos becoming as commonplace as tattoo sleeves are today.
