Usher Raymond‘s obviously a creative person. After all he’s in a profession that literally thrives on creativity. It appears that creativity knows no bounds.
We refer to Usher’s newest creative effort that required him to summon his inner Mike Tyson to some extint. If you recall, Iron Mike shocked the world when he got his infamous face tat. Difference is Usher’s new work of art is on the back of his head.

I had the pleasure of tattooing the legend @usher @sriyantratattoo this piece was inspired by transformation, Sacred geometry and an ancient Berber talisman to mark the cardinal points in the sky and allow travelers to find their way across vast distances.✨ I’ve listened to @usher since I was about 11 years old so definitely an honor 🙏
Here’s more via TMZ:
The result’s a beaut — a tat inspired by sacred geometry and an ancient Berber stone that marks the cardinal points in the sky, which allows travelers to find their way across vast distances. World history, look it up.
Usher and Dillon — who has also worked on Chris Hemsworth and Kat Von D, among others — met through Jennifer Love Hewitt’s hubby, Brian Hallisay. It wasn’t long before an introduction was made and the singer sat down for a 3-hour sesh last weekend at Dillon’s Sri Yantra Tattoo Studio in Venice.
Ya gotta imagine, given the tat’s location, it had to hurt. Probs worth it … when your head can now count as a masterpiece.
