Tupac Amaru Shakur is one of the most influential musicians of all time, so it’s not surprising that a lot of people immortalized him by tattooing his image on their bodies. Here we have the best tattoos of people who were so inspired by 2Pac that they had to ink his face on their skin.
For the very few who don’t know, 2Pac, or Tupac Amaru Shakur as is his full name, was an American rapper who is considered by the majority as the best rapper of all time. Since the majority of his songs revolved about important and wide-spread social problems, a lot of people felt the connection to the young man
He was killed on September 13th, 1996 in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada after the boxing match of Bruce Seldon and Mike Tyson. He was just 25 years old but he still managed to deeply influence a huge amount of people with his music, as evident by these people from Instagram who decided to pay their respects by tattooing him on his body.

To start us off with the 10 awesome Tupac Amaru Shakur tattoos, we have this lifelike piece of art that exudes emotions Tupac made his listeners feel and think about.
Another Tupac fan went a different route and didn’t choose a life-imitating way, rather a stylized, graffiti-like version of the portrait. The use of color really makes the whole art piece pop out and has a very strong feeling of the ’90s.
The best homage tattoos are the ones that not only include the person but something more which they represented. And for Tupac Shakur, that was the West Coast of United States, even though he was born in Harlem, New York. A lowrider and a street of palm trees – you can just hear To Live And Die In L.A. when you look at this photo.
A very different and unexpected take, but that what tattoos are all about. This person obviously likes zombies alongside Tupac, so he mixed the two together. He would probably like these micro knuckle tattoos. Might be too bizarre for some, but it’s personal and unique.
I heard you like tattoos so we put tattoos on your tattoo. You dig?
