#List #Style | Inked'Up: 6 African Celebs Rock Africa Tattoo

We all love to express ourselves through our appearance. For some of us, tattoos are one of the most popular forms of self-expression. Here at Afroziky, we found 6 people who showed their love for the motherland by having the shape of the African continent inked on their body. Ain't that just cool? Check out the peeps who wear Africa on their skin.

Nigerian American Rapper Wale  has always shown how much he loves Africa and his Naija people. The emcee rocks the shape of Africa and a lion face on his chest.
German Ghanaian Kevin Boateng is undoubtedly one of the most tatted-up football players. He also represents with the Africa tattoo at the center of a tribal artwork on his arm. Inside the tattoo, Ghana is spelled out so you know where the sport star is from.
Unlike his brother Kevin, Germany and Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng decided to not play for Ghana, but do not question his love for his father's country. Just like Kevin, Jerome has the Africa tattoo with Ghana spelled out inside the outline. “I have soft spot for tattoos but I just don’t tattoo anything on my body. I only tattoo things that have special meaning for me,” says the Boateng bro.
Nigerian boxer and celebrity trainer Hollywood Hino reps Africa with a tattoo of the continent on his back.
“I live by it. I die by it. I love being African,” says the proud Naija boy about his continent.

Congolese singer Mimitah has a green tattoo of the continent on her arm with the map of her country inside in red. "I am proud to be African" says the sexy songstress.
To motivate her football team the Banyana Banyana for the 2012 Olympics, South African defender Janine van Wyk had the Olympic emblem and the shape of Africa drawn on her arm. "I won’t only be representing South Africa at the Olympics but indeed carrying the hopes of Africa." proudly expressed the athlete.
