Default Lloyd Banks Gets Tatted On TLC

While G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks is revving up to release his sophomore album Rotten Apple on October 10, the rapper will also make an appearance on TLC’s hit show Miami Ink., where he’ll receive a full-back tattoo.

The tattoo, intricately placed on Banks by renowned tattoo artist Chris Garver, depicts a New York City landscape, showcasing the best and worst of Banks’ hometown.

In the tattoo’s foreground, Garver has created an unique replica of the Statue of Liberty, but instead of carrying a torch, she holds a gun.

Also in the episode, Banks describes the hardships that have helped build his music career and recounts the day he was shot, stating "it's not like the movies.”

Miami Ink tells the stories of five professional tattoo masters (Ami James, Chris Garver, Darren Brass, Chris Nuñez, and the apprentice Yojiro Harada) in Miami who met ten years ago when they lived, worked and studied under the world famous tattoo artist, the late Lou Sciberras.

They went their separate ways and opened up their own tattoo parlors in Los Angeles, New York, Connecticut, and South Beach respectively, with hopes of one day reuniting and opening their own tattoo parlor together as partners.

Miami Ink/I> chronicles their journey as they deal with rude customers, difficult requests for tattoo designs and celebrities looking for the perfect piece of body art.

The episode airs October 10 at 10pm EST on The Learning Channel (TLC), the same day Banks’ Rotten Apple is released.
