Usher Gets A New New Head & Back Tattoo [Photos]
Usher Raymond has revealed new ink designed by famed Los Angeles tattoo artist Dillon Forte. Usher’s latest masterpiece covers the back of his head, which works perfectly with the singer’s new Killmonger inspired hairstyle and continues all the way to his upper back.
After a 3-hour job, tattooer Forte revealed his work on Instagram sharing how much of an honor working with the R&B superstar was. According to the artist, Usher’s new tat is inspired by sacred geometry and an ancient Berber stone that marks the cardinal points in the sky, which allows travelers to find their way across vast distances. Forte shares,
“I had the pleasure of tattooing the legend Usher. This piece was inspired by transformation, Sacred geometry and an ancient Berber talisman to mark the cardinal points in the sky and allow travelers to find their way across vast distances. I’ve listened to Usher since I was about 11 years old so definitely an honor.”
As Usher continues to find his zen with new hairstyles and new ink, he’s prepping new music. Recently, he hinted at a possible sequel to his most notable album “Confessions,” while in the studio with So So Def founder/super-producer Jermaine Dupri. He gave a preview of a new song called “Believe.”
To add more suspense, Usher shared a photo of him sitting beside a blurred-out dry erase board, seemingly being used to list an order of new songs in the So So Def recording studio. The top of the board reads, “Confessions 2!” Usher’s caption read:
“Dis what yall want…”
