Karrine gets tattoo for Lil Wayne 

A controversial author noted for bedding several high-profile rappers is showing off a new tattoo today. Karrine Steffans, who was rumored to be joining the cast of “Basketball Wives LA,” has successfully debunked that claim and is instead promoting a book on her spiritual connection with rapper Lil Wayne.

“We are indestructible and I find it fascinating,” says Steffans of the Young Money rapper. “I’m in constant contact with this person every day, every other day.”

Her forthtcoming tome has managed to get tongues wagging once again, this time with rumors that she’s added a tattoo to her body in Weezy’s honor. In the tweet below tweet, Steffans shows her more than 18,000 followers the ink in process. She would later show off the finished product, the number “56,” etched across her neck with the caption “TuneChi taught me.” Some have surmised that 56 actually stands for 5-foot-6, a code word for the rapper’s height.

“Tattoo by @IamCompton” Karrine captioned this photo

In addition to pictures of the ink, Karrine also shared a blog post where she explains the tattoo’s origin.

Check out an excerpt from that and more of her new tatt below. –danielle canada
