Can I Get An Encore For These Jay-Z Tattoo Portraits?

Most of the time when you see tattoos of rappers, you see dearly departed ones. But not HOV, he's still live, living, and active, and killin' it every day. 

And if you are someone who aspires to be the entrepreneur and lyrical genius that is Jay-Z, or if you just really, really love him, these tattoos will intrigue and inspire you.

Plus, tattoos are a longtime investment. We think Jay would be cool with it, as long as you're still building your credit!

Check out the cool ink here and make sure that you follow the artists on Instagram!
