Rappers lead the world when it comes to ridiculous tattoos. But while it's easy to mock Lil Wayne getting the EPSN logo on his arm or Eve's decision to stamp cat paws on her breasts, sometimes rappers themselves have second thoughts about their ink art. So with Gucci Mane recently revealing a freshly-tattooed ice cream cone on his face, here's hip-hop's five most regrettable -- and often hastily covered-up -- rap tats.
5. Baby's Bronald Logo
Lil Wayne's tattoos usually hit the headlines, but despite his extensive collection of body art, Weezy's mentor, Baby, can claim an even bigger faux pas. After telling the world that he owned an oil and gas company called Bronald, he showcased its name and logo on the side of his head. Alas, as doubts about the company's very existence were raised, the Cash Money man soon covered it up with a big red star, which he passed off as a tribute to his Five Star Stunna album.
4. Crooked I's Misspelled Crew Name
As one-fourth of indie rap supergroup Slaughterhouse, Crooked I is respected for his lyricism and word play. Unfortunately for the Long Beach rapper, his tattoo artist isn't quite the stickler for accuracy: He misspelled the name of Crooked's crew, crucially leaving out the "H" in "Slaughter." In his defense, Crooked I claimed he was tipsy while getting inked up -- although that didn't stop group-mate Joe Budden from heartily lampooning the typo on his web-TV channel.
3. The Game's Cute Little Butterfly
When The Game announced himself as the newest member of 50 Cent's G-Unit crew, the self-professed "Compton's prodigy" did so well that he was lauded as the new embodiment of gangsta rap fire-starters N.W.A. Then he got a butterfly inked on his face. Despite claiming it was a tribute to his grandmother, The Game soon found out that the rap world is an unsentimental place, so after being roundly mocked for it he switched it up into a Dodgers-style tribute to L.A.
