He loves it so much he got a tattoo of it on his left forearm, using the New York Magazine font.The 43-year-old Harlemite posted pictures of the tattoo on Instagram Friday, and New York Magazine retweeted it, adding, “We’re flattered.”
Combs, who started his own clothing line Sean John in 1998, held the first ever Instagram fashion show Friday.
“In honor of New York Fashion Week we wanted to do something that has never been done before,” he said. “With Instagram technology we are bringing Sean John to the social media runway where our consumer lives.”
Combs’ loyalty to his home state and city runs deeper than getting it tattooed. In October 2011, Combs saved the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem from being shut down due to state budget cuts and a lack of personal donations. The rapper made a “sizable donation” that kept the doors of the club open (source).
What do you think of Combs’ new tattoo?
