Polo G, a rap musician, has added another tattoo to his collection of memorial tattoos for loved ones who have passed away. Following the passing of his buddy and colleague Juice Wrld, the rapper paid tribute to him by getting a tattoo in his honor.
When It Comes to His Tattoos
The Pop-Out rapper discussed his tattoos and the purpose behind them in an interview with Montreality on June 2, 2020.
The rapper has only a few tattoos, some of them were memorials to his loved ones.
The ‘Killa Season’ and ‘Long Live Twin Nem’ tattoos on his left forehand were inked in commemoration of his boyhood buddies who had passed away, according to the Die A Legend star.
The artist stated that his first tattoo, which he received when he was 17, read ‘Black=intimidation factor.’ He was a little ashamed when he displayed it.
The artist also showed off his GG tattoo, which stood for Gucci Gang, which he had above his right forehead.
Polo proudly displayed his neck tattoo, which read “chosen 1” and included an angel and a devil on each side. The rapper went on to say that the number 75710 was written beneath the angel since it was his angel number.
Tattoos Done Recently
Polo acquired two new tattoos in honor of his late friend Juice Wrld and his grandmother over a month after the interview.
The rapper had a portrait of his grandma with a statement from her tattooed on his left arm as a tribute to her.
Polo received Juice’s globe insignia with the numerals 999 and a straw piercing through it atop that tattoo.
On tracks like Flex from his first album THE GOAT and Hate the Other Side off Juice’s posthumous album Legends Never Die, the two collaborated frequently.
Their bond, however, extended beyond their professional relationship. Juice had reached out to Polo and expressed his affection for him. Polo discussed his bond with Juice in an interview with Billboard.
Rap-up reports that the 21-year-old posted a photo of his tattoos to his Instagram story with the statement, “STill see my grandmas, still see my guyzzz.”
The tattoos were apparently done by Phor, a well-known tattoo artist from VH1’s Black Ink Crew Chicago, who tagged Polo in an Instagram post on July 14, 2020.
For tagged Polo in the caption and revealed that the rapper got the tattoos in honor of his grandmother and friend Juice.
The 999’s Backstory
Here’s why Polo inked the number 999 in his Juicy tribute tattoo.
In a July 24, 2018 interview, the rapper stated that similar to how the number 666 is linked with the devil, the number 999 is related to converting all of your negative into a driving element for yourself.
Jarad A. Higgins, the rapper’s real name, died in December 2019 at the age of 21 after a seizure triggered by an accidental overdose of oxycodone and codeine.
