You know what they say: "New year, new face tattoo." At least that's what Lil Wayne says. The rapper-turned-skateboarder decided to pay homage to skateboard company Baker the best way he knows how—by tattooing the word "baked" on his forehead. Weezy, who already has stars, a lightning bolt and teardrops (among other things) tattooed on his noggin, chose the area above his right eye for his new ink because... that's the only place he has left?

In an interview with Hot 107.9 last year, Lil Wayne said that hip hop was going to "take a backseat to skating" because he was getting pretty bored "when it comes to rapping and stuff." That's not entirely true because we heard him jump in on Timbaland's new track, "The Party Anthem," just this morning. Maybe the new tat is Tunechi's attempt to prove how serious he is about this whole skating thing. In which case, WE BELIEVE YOU, Weezy.
