"Tattoo Girl (Foreva)" Video
11:37 AM


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?

*sigh*

This is the worst thing ever. Ever.

Best hip-hop ode to tattooed women, though, as to be "Tatted Up" by The Alliance featuring D4L. So bad it's good.

Jay, I forgot about "Tattooed Up"! I knew I missed one. I have a whole collection of rap video on tattoos that make me cry.



It might just be my masochistic tendencies, but I REALLY want to hear that "hook" without the auto-tune. The CGI-ink in the video isn't nearly as horrible as what Antares' pitch-correction software has done to pop music.



At first I thought the one guy had uber colorful intense ink for his skin tone, but then realized it was a tshirt over his hands too. Too bad it wasn't great color work like Mike Cole:

wtf? you'd think writing a good rap about a tattooed cutie would come naturally to someone out there? Actually there is one NERD song about "a shorty with a tattooed thigh" that is really good but that's the only reference to the tattoo... for some reason I've always pictured it was a virgin of guadalupe scene



unrelated, but was curious as to your thoughts on this project: http://blog.scottcampbelltattoo.com/post/731667100/scott-campbell-for-louis-vuitton
