R&B singer Lloyd is the latest to get some serious ink, taking a page outta Birdman’s book and getting his head tatted.
In support of his new album King of Hearts, the singer debuted his new head tattoo and hairstyle during his appearance on BET’s “106 & Park” on Tuesday (July 5), which is an image of two revolvers wrapped in roses.
“I’m a walking contrast. I go from hard to soft, I go from guns to roses, which is what’s on my tat. And I like to go from the streets to the sheets,” Lloyd told host Terrence J, according to Rap-Up.com. “I make street-savvy R&B music, but I also like to slow it down and be sensual at times, so when you listen to King of Hearts, you get a lot of the contrast of who is me.”
According to the singer, the tat reminded him of his late grandfather.
“I lost my best friend in the world July 4th of last year, my grandfather, and the whole time I did it, I just thought about him, all the good times we shared,” Lloyd explained. “Every July 4th, I go down to New Orleans and I visit him and spend time with the family.”
King of Hearts is out now.
