In addition to his Barack Obama and Trayvon Martin tattoos, rapper Game has added a new icon to his collection of tribute ink.

The Compton rapper revealed on Instagram Monday night a nicely sized tattoo he recently got in honor of Nelson Mandela. He wrote:

“Nelson Mandela lookin out of the prison bars by @NikkoHurtado done on my side. 7 hour sitting…. Few more hours to tie in the tats around it & we solid.”

Game’s tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado also added a few words regarding the tattoo.

“A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don’t have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed.” #NelsonMandela Tattoo collector [The Game] In the arm pit area! Ouch.
