In the past, most Africans were not fond of tattoos mostly because it was seen as a rebellious thing. But recently, everyone wants tattoos as much as Vybz Kartel and Lil Wayne. In the words of Gaza King Vybz Kartel, “Tattoos sell off, everybody has to look”. He encourages both old and young people to stamp their bodies with inked arts covering fields as varied as fire-breathing dragons, serpents, angels, demons, daggers, buxom females and portraits of their heroes. Several people stamp tattoos in quite doubtful spots on their bodies, leaving a great number of observers in a “wonder land”.
