Lil Uzi Vert, known for his love of tattoos, has caused a stir on social media once again with his latest body art. On Sunday, April 9th, the Philadelphia rapper posted a clip on Twitter showing off his new tongue tattoo – an upside-down cross.
This new tattoo has sparked controversy, as the upside-down cross is often associated with satanic beliefs. It's not the first time that Lil Uzi Vert has been accused of promoting satanism through his lyrics and personal style, and this new tattoo only adds fuel to the fire.

Interestingly, the upside-down cross is also a popular tattoo design, with many people sporting the controversial symbol on their bodies. In fact, we recently wrote an article about upside-down cross tattoos, exploring their meaning and origins. While some view this tattoo as a symbol of rebellion or anti-Christian sentiment, others see it as a way to question authority and reject traditional beliefs.

Tongue tattoos, like the one Lil Uzi Vert got, are fairly common in the body modification world. However, they also come with risks, as puncturing the taste buds the wrong way can cause permanent damage. It's important to think carefully before deciding to get a tongue tattoo, or any tattoo for that matter.
It's unclear who performed Lil Uzi Vert's new tattoo, but it's possible that it was done by tattoo artist @gangatattoo, who was tagged in the clip. He previously designed the rapper's massive full body tattoo that reportedly cost $100,000 and took 16 hours to complete.
Regardless of the potential controversy, Lil Uzi Vert continues to be adventurous when it comes to tattoos. His latest body art will undoubtedly inspire others to experiment with new and unconventional tattoo designs, whether they're on the tongue or elsewhere.
As always, it's important to do your research and consider the potential meanings and implications of any tattoo design before getting inked. Whether you're considering an upside-down cross tattoo or something completely different, it's important to make an informed decision that you'll be happy with for years to come.
