Diehard Los Angeles Lakers fan Snoop Dogg celebrated the team's 17th championship win on Sunday with some new ink. On Tuesday, the 48-year-old rapper showed off his new tattoo on his left forearm dedicated to the Lakers, as well as the late Kobe Bryant.
The sizeable new ink by tattoo artist Mr. Cartoon features the Lakers logo above the Larry O'Brien championship trophy, with Bryant's initials on his wrist.
"As you see, tat is done," Snoop says in his Instagram video. "KB on the bottom -- Kobe Bryant -- Larry O'Brien championship trophy with the Lakers going through the ball, gates of heaven up top. And it don't stop, Laker Nation. Thank y'all, Lakers, and thank you Mr. Cartoon in a real mother f**king way. We're the west and we're the best, f**k out of here."
