Female Rappers with Tattoos: Past & Present

A good amount of female rappers have tattoos. They use their body art as a representation of themselves and their public personas. Personally, I think Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes had the best tattoos. They were not gaudy and held great meaning. Also, she had the courage to tattoo herself in the early 90's when many female rappers, like Queen Latifah and MC Lyte, were not doing such things. Nowadays, it's a norm for a female rapper to be tatted up. Trina, Nicki Minaj, Charlie Baltimore, Foxy Brown, Khia, Jackie-O and Eve all have several tattoos. Lil Kim seems to be the only one one to not have any actual tats. Jackie-O, Khia and Charlie Baltimore appear to have the biggest ones. Each woman has her own personality and individual style, but I wonder when they get older how their body art will look...
