What do you know about Wiz Khalifa’s tattoos? No really what do you know? He is one of the rap artists with the most breathtaking tattoos judging by the fact that they are so numerous there is no doubt that people do not really pay attention to their meaning or significance. In light of this here is everything you need to know about Wiz Khalifa’s tattoos in 5 quick facts.
Wiz Khalifa Has 411 Tattoos
The question of the number of tattoos by the Pittsburgh artist must have crossed your mind once or twice. You could have even guessed although it would be a little confusing given that most of his tattoos overlap. Nevertheless, it is very unlikely that you have reached the figure above. Before you asked the question we didn’t count them because it would undoubtedly be a colossal waste of time. We got some information from the horse’s mouth.
The star admitted in an episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Scarlett Johansson that at the last count, he had 411 different pieces. That explains a lot you can barely see clear skin on your body and there is no doubt in our hearts that it will cover the space with ink and more ink.
His Mother Ignited His Passion For Tattoos
At an age when most children would hide their secret tattoos, Wiz had one openly. In fact, he was recommended to him by his mother Peachie Wimbush. He told BET News: “When I got my first tattoo I was 16 years old. My mother took me to get it. She asked me if I wanted one and I said yes.
So she took her “tattooed virginity” almost 13 years later and most of her skin is covered with ink; her work in virgin ink blends into a collage of images and different words that cover her arms torso back and legs. There’s no doubt she didn’t see it coming but we bet he did.
Wiz Khalifa’s Tattoos Were Always Part Of The Plan
It seems that Peachie just lit the flame the gas was already lit. Young Wiz had already planned to cover his body with tattoos. These plans date back to before his teenage years. Even if the artist’s body is almost entirely covered with tattoos his plans are still in motion. He intends to continue to get smaller tattoo additions for the rest of his life.
Wiz Khalifa told Interview magazine: “Before I even got a tattoo for the first time – since I was young – I knew I wanted to be covered. I just traced what I felt and put it on my body to tell my story. In addition to that, he said “I still leave small places and spaces to add things. I want to get a tattoo forever. I don’t want to run out of space while I’m young. I really want my tattoos to make sense.
We do not understand but we cannot judge it some people have more bizarre life plans and aspirations.
His Face Is Off Limits
Judging by the amount of body art the artist already has one might think he has no limits. If you thought in that direction you were wrong. Although the artist “loves ink” for the most part his face remains out of bounds. That’s why it’s the only place not covered with tattoos. Apart from a few small tattoos shouting at his Taylor gang team the artist’s face remains inlaid.
About his “facial tattoos” or the absence of facial tattoos he told BET News: “I wouldn’t get a tattoo of a place that would make me look different – under my eyes on my cheeks or face right in the middle of my forehead. “Anywhere else that’s right. This makes us wonder about the ‘Anywhere else’ he talks about.

Though They Are Many, He Has A Favorite Tattoo
Despite the fact that all his tattoos mean something special and significant to him the most significant of the band is a quote from Martin Luther King Jr. who covers his belly. Wiz got a tattoo when he was very young and admitted that it definitely makes more sense as he gets older. The inspiring article states: “A man’s ultimate measure is not where he is in moments of comfort and convenience but where he is in moments of challenge and controversy.
It just proves that there is a depth in Wiz Khalifa that can go unnoticed if you try to judge the book by its cover.
