Lil Peep’s 55 Tattoos & Their Meanings

Late American rapper, Gustav Ahr aka Lil Peep, was one of the talented young artists, who was also responsible for bringing Post Emo Revival rap to the world. He died at a young age of 21 years. He kind of “felt” that he was about to die, so, just a few hours before his death he posted on his Twitter account, “when I die, you’ll miss me.” He became a millionaire overnight after his death when his fans emptied his online merch store. He was famous for his weird looks and tattoos. He got a bunch of tattoos on his body, each of which had a special meaning to him. Let’s take a tour of his inscriptions.
