RHOyal Speaks About "Fiasco Tattoogate"...

Because I'm hella grown... I am not in the business of explaining my actions and decisions to anyone...

However...

Given the massive uproar that my absolutely GORGEOUS tattoo that I ADORE has caused, I will make an exception just this once...

If you know me... Then you know that in 2003, I was shot and nearly killed with a shotgun... Because of this, my left arm is severely scarred...

After 3 years of being ashamed and trying to hide my scars, I decided last year that instead of being sad everytime I look at my arm, I want to be happy everytime I look at it by having control over the way it looks... It was then that I decided that by the time I'm 30, I want my entire arm to be sleeved (Covered in tattooes)...

I got my first one last year on the anniversary of the shooting and I plan on getting one EVERY year until it's completely covered...



Last year I got drumsticks, the title of one of my favorite poems, a young man who I consider to be my angel's initials and the date of the shooting...

This year I got Lupe Fiasco...

Next year I'm getting a half sleeve of a montage of Disney characters that I adore...

And the year after that (or maybe even earlier) I'm getting stars to fill in all the empty gaps...

The bottom line is this... Drums make me happy... Disney makes me happy... Stars make me happy... Sylvia Plath's poem makes me happy... And Lupe makes me happy...

When I look at MY arm, I'm happy now...

So to those of you who feel the need to call me stupid and judge me (anonymously no less) in the comments section, I have only this to say... You do what you want with your arm... And I'll do what I want with mine...



It seems to me that you're just a bit envious that when I do something, I go extra hard... A lot of people don't have the balls to do what I do... Which is why a lot of people won't reach the heights that I do...


Everybody say praise the Lord
Ain't another like me, I swear to God
Everybody wanna be amongst the stars
So now I gotta go and do it extra hard

Steppin out extra hard
New aim, new game, fresh feet on the car
Don't ever let a nigga tell you who you are
So when you gotta show 'em, go extra hard... (c) Little Brother


Oh... And just for the record...

A) I was Lupe's #1 LOOONG before the tat...

2) I may be a lot of things... But stupid is not one of them...

D) I'm not trying to get attention from Lu... I've already got it... Lupe is my homeboy!... Thought you knew...

I'll put it like this, I totally agree 100% with your reasoning behind the tattoo. Tattoos are a very personal thing. While some may be insulting you about it, they won't be around you when you are 80 years old and your grandchildren/great-grandchildren ask you about the tattoo. It symbolizes a moment of happiness in your life. I remember wanting to get a tattoo of Tupac in tribute but never went through with it. Folks probably would have clowned but when I'm 80, I could have told my grandkids the story of the legacy of who I feel is the greatest of all time. Everyone has their own way to celebrate someone or something.

I was thinking of getting my favorite album covers tattooed on me one day. Albums that helped mold me into who I am. Food & Liquor made the short list last year. When I get the tattoo, a representative of my favorite rapper will be on my body permanently as well.
