The Game's tattoo is right above his left eye and the numerical for eight is placed sideways in order to resemble an infinity symbol, dignifying that the Black Mamba will live on forever.

This is not the first time The Game got new ink to pay tribute to the deceased. When fellow Compton rapper Nipsey Hussle passed away in 2019, 'The Game' got a depiction of him tatted on his chest.

The rapper wasn't the only individual to get some new ink in honor of Kobe, as current Lakers stars Anthony Davis and LeBron James also got tattoos to show their respect to the late NBA legend.
