Hot Shot: Lloyd Tattoos Head

R&B crooner Lloyd’s fourth studio album, ‘King of Hearts’, is out this week. To celebrate it’s release, the ‘Lay It Down’ singer got a tattoo that covers the back of his head. During a recent promotional stop to BET’s 106th & Park, Lloyd gave the inspiration behind his new ink.

“I’m a contrast, i’m a walking contrast. I go from hard to soft. I go from the guns to roses, which is in my tatt, and I like to go from the streets to the sheets. I make street savvy R&B music but I also like to slow it down and be sensual at times.”

    well, it’s not like he could make himself look any worse, but I’m glad to see the long hair go… that look went out with the last decade. He’s looking a lil less Flavor Flav these days. So what, who cares?

    Im like that tattoo, or it’s purported ‘meaning’, conflicted. On one hand it’s a nice tattoo, you can tell it was done with great crare, and artisitry, and despite it being the enite length of his head, is not so ‘OUT THERE;. But it IS out there conversely, simply being that’s it’s a giant drawing of a gun…ON HIS HEAD!! It would be raw it it was just apint/airbrush/spray job, but NOT permanet. He’ll definitely regret it…..

    WTF? I thought this was just a hair cut! WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD HE DO THIS? He looked best with long hair. Will it ever grow with a tatt in the way? Foolish ones….

    making the news for the wrong reasons, you have an album comin ou this week and you choose an “apt” time to get tattooed #deuces

    A gun tattooed on ya head?! Not a good look man! Not at all!

    Is he an R&B singer or a member of west coast gang??

    I can understand what he’s trying to do, but It’s not the right thing.

  15. Calizone July 6, 2011

    man he looks like
    …Six flags giving back after laying off over 1,300 people.. 4 tickets..s*** my whole fam going now!

  16. Jasmine July 6, 2011

    Sad when mediocre singers resort to desperate antics for sales like dumb tweets and ugly tatoos. He should not e so dumb and desperate.



    WHY LLOYD???


  18. Marcus July 7, 2011

    He’s buggin’ for that FOOLISHNESS!

  19. Haiku July 7, 2011

    I actually think the design looks GOOD.
    but if would also look good on a T-Shirt…

    he will regret this

  20. Ty July 7, 2011

    Ouch and no. Looks good but……why? Just, why?

  21. nice_gurl July 7, 2011

    I understand the concept, but he will regret this next year and for the rest of his life for that matter. Maybe, like someone else said, just have this on a t-shirt.

    You’re so cool! I don’t believe I’ve truly read through
    something like this before. So nice to find another person with
    some genuine thoughts on this subject. Seriously..
    thanks for starting this up. This website is one thing that’s needed on the
    internet, someone with some originality!
