Nicki Minaj’s rumored boyfriend Safaree Samuels showed his love for the rapper in a very public way this week. Samuels videotaped himself getting a tattoo of the 30-year-old’s face on his arm. While the pair has never confirmed their relationship, he has been by Minaj’s side as her “hypeman” ever since she became famous.
The new tattoo features a pink-haired Minaj with her tongue sticking out and her cleavage showing.
Samuels said about the tattoo: “A lot of people out there tattoo somebody that they don’t know. Why not tattoo somebody that I know, you know?” He then spoke about his Bob Marley tattoo on his left arm. “The Bob Marley?” he asked, before saying,“I don’t know what I was thinking.”
Samuels is not the only one to get a tattoo of his loved one. In April, Amber Rose showed off large tattoos of her fiancé, Wiz Khalifa, and her mother, Shauna Soares, on Instagram. Both are portraits of their faces. The tattoos are both black-and-white. The ink of Khalifa’s face is on the back of her left arm. It is unclear where she got the portrait of her mother. Along with the photo she posted of her Khalifa tattoo, she wrote, “True Love #Cam&Amb:-).” As a caption for the photo of her mother’s ink, Rose wrote, “New Tatt- Throwback of my Mommy Ms Dottie.”
