Are Face Tattoos Now a Legitimate Hip-Hop Promotional Gimmick?

Gucci Mane, of course, pioneered the practice a month back with his brazen ice-cream cone face tattoo. Yung LA — the Atlanta rapper formerly of T.I.'s Grand Hustle label — went next: Footage has surfaced of Yung with an amorphous design on the left part of his face currently being identified as a "pink duck." "Face art as promotional gimmick" feels like it has potential, right? (Hey, Yung LA did just trick Vulture into writing about him.) Oh, boy: Keeping our rappers with face tattoos database up to date might get tough. [Pigeons and Planes]
