Gucci Mane is likely to be the last person to ever get a facial tattoo with triple scoop ice cream cone with lightening bolts from Atlanta’s Tenth Street Tattoo.
was [hesitant] like 'Are you sure you want to put that much [ink] in
that area?,'" Willoughby told Vibe.com. "He came straight to the counter
and that's where he pointed."
The tattooist also said that he
suggested to the rapper that he put the ice cream cone else where, but
Gucci had an issue with that.
"When [Gucci] said he wanted to do
the ice cream thing I said 'Well why don't we do it somewhere else?' But
he was like I don't have anywhere else."
Willoughby said Gucci came into the shop at about 2PM and was completely sober, dispelling any rumors that he was inebriated.
won't tattoo anybody if they’re [drunk] or high because I can't stand
the smell of weed... [Gucci] seemed completely sober” ha explained. “He
knew what he was doing. He said 'I want something rock 'n roll.' There's
nothing more rock 'n roll than lightening bolts."
While he has
tattooed other celebrities like Chilli from TLC, Willoughby said he
won’t likely oblige other celebs in the future if they have outrageous
requests like Gucci.
"I don't think I'll ever do [that] again... no matter how successful [the celebrity]."
And Gucci was excited over the tattoo, Willoughby concluded.
"He was stoked. Had no regrets... was jumping up and down. That's the way he rolls."
Gucci was recently at Atlanta's Anchor Hospital for psychiatric evaluation, but has since been released.
