Rapper Lil Wayne inked his latest tattoo in a spot others usually leave bare.

Wayne tattooed the word “BAKED” on the top right of his forehead, resembling the skateboard company Baker‘s logo.

Wayne has been outspoken about his interest in skateboarding over the past couple of years and last spring he launched his own skate line, Trukfit.

Last month in an interview with HipHopDX Wayne said, “I guess I’m about that life. It’s kinda putting rap on the backburner, that’s all … I think fans deserve some peace from me.”

Clearly the tattoo is also a reference to the rapper’s infamous prodigious drug use.

This latest tattoo joins a host of other tattoos on Wayne’s face that include 10 stars on each side of his eye –some of which glow in the dark–, “I am music” in red above his eye and “misunderstood” written across his hairline.
