G Herbo’s tattoos explored

The rapper is said to have 11 tattoos in total across his left and right arms, as well as his chest, stomach and back.

While talking to Inked magazine last year, G Herbo opened up on the meanings behind his inkings: “Just like my music, all of my tattoos are significant and true to me. If you are a fan of my music, you could understand my tattoos just by looking at them.”

His first tattoo was the number 79 with a background design of flames on his left forearm, which represents the number of the street where he grew up in Chicago.

The artist also honours his home town with a piece on his stomach that features the number 773, an area code for the city.

Elsewhere according to Body Art Guru, the rapper also has an angel and a portrait tattoo on his right arm, which are said to pay tribute to his late mother, Diane.

G Herbo gets a tattoo in honour of his son

After the birth of his eldest son Yosohn in 2018, G Herbo had his name tattooed across his chest in script, along with a heart on his left side marking his son’s date of birth.

In May this year, the artist welcomed his second son with fiancée Taina Williams who they named Essex William Wright.

According to a post on his Instagram story, it seems G Herbo has continued the tradition of getting his sons’ names tattooed as he showed off his latest inking, Essex, written across the top of his back.
