The Game has revealed his newest tattoo, which is the face of Trayvon Martin, the teenager who was killed in Florida last year.

The rapper had Martin’s face inked onto his lower leg during a seven hour procedure that took place at the Roman Abrego at Artistic Element in Los Angeles on Friday.

The Game, who was born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, was a vocal supporter of the Martin family, especially during the trial, as well as the months leading up to the case.

Abrego even posted a short video on Instagram of his work, which is the iconic image of the hooded Martin in his grey attire with his hood over his head.

The Game then added a picture of his new tattoo to his Instagram, and he placed it up alongside the split-screen to show the likeness.

The musician also tweeted, “After 7 hours sleep… @romantattoos woke me up & my #TrayvonMartin tat is finito… FOLLOW the homie @romantattoos & get on his calendar now!!!!!!!!!!!! #JusticeForTrayvon.”

Other tattoos on The Game’s body include a dedication to Barack Obama, which is across his chest, and tributes to Eazy-E and N.W.A, an image of 2Pac as an angel, plus he has even shown his animosity towards 50 Cent and G-Unit by writing G-Unot on his body too. He also has LA Dodgers’ logo below his eye, which covers a former tattoo of a butterfly.

The Game also has the word, “Stretch,” across his stomach, which refers to his old nickname that references The Game’s height, which stands at six-foot-four.

Trayvon Martin was shot to death in Sanford, Florida, on February 26, 2012, at the age of 17. George Zimmerman, who fatally shot him while working as a neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted for the murder of Martin by a jury in July.

Various protests and marches were then launched which contested the “stand-your-ground” law that lead to Zimmerman’s acquittal.
