1. ‘Budding Flower’ Tattoo
Tattoo: The left side of Frank Ocean’s chest is adorned with a beautiful design of a budding rose flower.
3. ‘Torso Sculpture’ Tattoo
Tattoo: The left side of Frank Ocean’s stomach is embellished with a Torso Sculpture, an image of the half-naked body without head and legs. The tattoo was revealed by his tattoo artist (Evan Tattoo) on twitter. The tattoo is inspired by some of the music of Frank.
4. ‘YES NO’ Tattoo
Tattoo: Frank Ocean has YES NO inked inside of his right hand in which there consist two blocks in front of the YES and NO option, and Frank has got a tick inserted inside the box in front of the YES, claiming that he always gets encouraged to continue with all difficult decisions of life seeing this ink and thus, prefers to begin with a YES for everything.
However, it was discovered that this was not his permanent tattoo. He got this inked with a marker.
5. ‘Homo vs Hetro’ Tattoo
Tattoo: Frank Ocean got a tattoo of two male bunnies which is taken from the “Homo vs Hetero” illustration of 1983 by Matt Groening who is also the creator of the famous animated series, The Simpsons. His illustration included the queer( whose identity as per society’s gender norms are not fixed) bunny couple and a straight bunny couple. Whereas Frank has only got the male bunnies inked showing the homo part.
Meaning: The overall concept of “Homo vs Hetero” and thus this tattoo symbolizes that there is no difference between homosexuals and heterosexuals when we talk about their happiness, heartbreaks, and respect.
