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.
