I’m not exactly sure what the hell is going on with Usher these days but he’s been doing way too much. Perhaps he’s still celebrating the recent victory in his herpes lawsuit, or maybe he’s just rich and bored. Either way, this dude is seriously transitioning into the text book definition of mid-life crisis. And instead of buying an expensive sports car or constantly hitting on young chicks in the club (because that’s probably how his ass got in trouble in the first place), 40-year-old Usher has decided to say, “fuck the future!“, by permanently ruining the back of his neck with a tattoo that looks like a pentagram for witches at MIT.
I knew Usher was going through a life change when he debuted his new hairdo, looking like your favorite auntie headed down to a cabaret at the corner bar. Now TMZ reports that he’s back once again with a giant tattoo. Usher collaborated on the piece with famed tattoo artist Dillon Forte, and although one person commented with the question “Is that the DNA of your herpes?”, there’s a much deeper meaning behind it.
The result’s a beaut — a tat inspired by sacred geometry and an ancient Berber stone that marks the cardinal points in the sky, which allows travelers to find their way across vast distances.
Clearly Usher no longer cares what he does with his money. That being said, Usher you can find me on CashApp as @SoBrokeBen. I will gladly take some of those millions off your hands because you can no longer be trusted.
