These Are 10 Nigerian Musicians With Tattoos.

The tattoo culture is rapidly becoming a mainstay of our lifestyle. It is rare in recent times, to see a celebrity without at least one tattoo on his or her body.

Tattoo is a form of body beautification through the use of needle to design creative artwork on the skin. 

This phenomenon is gaining acceptance in our generation especially among the youths.

However, it is yet to be accepted into our cultural values due to African moralism.

Tattoos are beautiful and it is worth admiration especially when it is wonderfully fabricated by the artist.

This article brings to fore 10 Nigerian musicians with tattoos.

Charlie Boy

They called him the godfather of the Nigerian entertainment industry. He is one of those who is deeply immersed in tattoos and piercings.

He deserves to be the first in this list as the man is wildly engrossed in this culture.


Davido, is an American-born Nigerian singer, songwriter and record producer. Davido was born in Atlanta, US, and raised in Lagos.

The ‘nwa baby’ singer arrived into the Nigeria entertainment industry with a sleeve of tattoos.

The tattoos on Davido are on the upper region of his body, which include neck, chest, arm, hand, back and belly.


Wizkid is another musical icon that is worth mentioning here because of his style of tattooing.

The baby-faced Afro pop superstar is known for the inks on his forearms, he has extended the artwork to his bicep and underarm.

He has the iconic image of Fela inscribed on his right hand, when asked about this he said Fela kuti and Bob Marley are the two people that inspired him.

Reekado banks

He came into focus in 2013, his real name is Ayoleyi Solomon better known as Reekado Banks.

The young singer has a left handful of tattoos and it is unique in its own way.

Sean Tizzle

Sho le' singer Sean Tizzle showed off his massive new chest tattoo that says 'Live what you love'. He captioned the photo "Living what I Love...

Tizzle’s chest tattoos were designed symmetrically with patience, professionalism and obvious use of art technicality.

The wings on his chest were designed during his music tour in America.

Burna Boy

Burna Boy is known to be one of the most tattooed singers in the entertainment industry and no one can take that away from him.

He is regarded as the bad man of the music industry. He gained focus in the music world in 2012 and is renowned for his multiple trendy cool tattoos since his arrival.


Loverboy crooner and the widely acclaimed hunk of the Naija music scene, and the winner of the inaugural West African Project Fame Iyanya is well known for his athletic stature and appealing attribute.

The singer has several tattoos on his back as well as his chest, neck and his arm. According to him, “ tattoo of my late dad, late mum and late brother who all died in just a short time between 2008-2010”

I believe this must have been a depressing and crushing moment for the star. 

Oritse Femi

He came into focus in 2013 when he released a hit single "double wahala" which was a remix of Fela Kuti’s original song.

The Afrobeat singer has the word ‘International’ ascribed across his chest and he has several other inks on his body.

He has the Chinese language tattoed in his forearm and Rebecca written on his hands. The singer is indeed engrossed in Westernization.
