"Tattoo Girl (Foreva)" Video
To be filed under Oh no they didn't, the video for Detail's first single "Tattoo Girl (Foreva)" has just been released, and it is what you'd expect out of a rap with lyrics like "Tattoo girl, you are forever stuck on me." Not even T-Pain, Lil Wayne and Travis McCoy could stop this lyrical train wreck. Probably the worst part is that the tattoos on the video girls are CGI--and even the digital "art" is ridiculous. I think I spotted one actual (blown-out) tattoo on a background girl, maybe.
This is not the first rap ode to tattooed shorties. Who could forget "Tattoo" by Twista featuring Legit Ballaz? [Well, you can't forget something that you didn't know about in the first place.] I'm almost sorry to bring it to your attention, but there are just too many similarities between the videos. Again, the dancing CGI tattoos and WTF lyrics; oh, but there's just a bit more booty poppin. If you're going to exploit women, why not women with real tattoos just like our industry mags do?
