Lil Uzi Vert's Shocking Pivot
Have you heard the latest about Lil Uzi Vert? He's known for their super cool tattoos, but guess what? Lil Uzi Vert is thinking about saying goodbye to all of them!
In an interview with Ryan Leuteritz from L.A. Weekly, when asked about his favorite tattoo, Lil Uzi Vert dropped a bombshell. He don't have a favorite because he's planning to remove them all! Why? To get a more clean-cut, 'corporate' look.
This is a huge change! Remember, Lil Uzi Vert originally got face tattoos for a very different reason. Back in 2017, they told The FADER that after leaving a job at Bottom Dollar Food and being kicked out by their mom, they were pretty much on their own. Uzi got their first face tattoo, "Faith," to make sure they stayed focused on their music career, knowing that it meant they couldn't just walk into a regular job with a face tat.
A lot of Uzi's tattoos are really meaningful, like the Adinkra symbols from the Asante tribe in West Africa. One of these symbols, a small circle under their left eye, means "God is king." They also have other cool tats like an upside down cross on their tongue and a samurai on their back.
But here's another twist – Lil Uzi Vert recently said he might retire from music after their next album, "Luv Is Rage 3." At a show in Chicago, they told fans they want to try living a 'normal life' after the album and its tour.
So, what do you think? Is Lil Uzi Vert really going to remove all his tattoos and retire? It's definitely something to watch out for!
