There comes a point in every man’s life when they are forced to take a long hard look in the mirror and say “It’s time to ditch the skateboard and grow the fuck up.” For Pharrell Williams that day is nigh…
Whether Skateboard P actually skates or not is debatable, I do know however, that he ain’t no spring chicken. In fact according to my research (read: Wikipedia) the dude is 35 years old – no wonder he hasn’t got time for lines in the bathroom that shit would be like kryptonite to his old ass. Just joking.
In his quest to be taken seriously Williams has revealed that he is removing the ink in his limbs. But instead of time consuming pain inducing laser removal Williams has opted for a revolutionary new procedure that puts new skin over the tattoos.
“It’s basically like getting a skin graft, but you’re not taking skin from your ass or your legs. These guys actually grow the skin for you,” he says. “First you have to give them a sample of your skin, which they then replicate. Once that’s been done, they sew it on – and it’s seamless.”
“It’s going to be pricey, but worth it,” he says. “I got fire on my arms! I’m a grown man!” Despite the high costs of the procedure money clearly isn’t a problem for Williams, who should perhaps throw a few dollars Mike Tyson’s way to help him clear that abominable face tattoo up. Just a thought.
