50 Cent is getting most of his tattoos removed
It's high time 50 Cent made some change, so the rapper is choosing to have a bunch of his multiple body tattoos removed. Is it some high-minded move to clean up his gangsta image and help the kids learn that there are standards for presenting yourself in a reasonable manner? Nah, they're costing him money when he's trying to act, so they've got to go.
"It cuts down on the amount of time I have to spend in makeup covering them up," Curtis Jackson says about the procedures, which involve him removing most of the inked sleeves he has. He told People it was "an ongoing process."
Fiddy doesn't want to go entirely ink-free, though. He told the mag that while his arms will be bare, he's keeping at least one on his back. Meanwhile, you can see what's left of his artwork in Twelve with Chace Crawford next year.
