1001 Black Men–#682


I am not a huge fan of the neck tattoo. The name-in-script on the side of the neck is certainly preferable to the skull/sadclownhappyclown/giant eyeball/flaming heart in the center of the throat, but I generally question the wisdom of getting any sort of ink above the shoulders.

So … a few days ago, I ran into this guy who had “Juicy” tattooed on the right side of his neck (albeit in a modest and understated script). It had never occurred to me that anyone but James Mtume or Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace would even consider such a thing.

As Christopher Wallace would say, “If you don’t know, now you know.”
