NextImg:Offset debuts massive back tattoo honoring late cousin Takeoff

More On:


Offset is honoring his slain groupmate and cousin, Takeoff, with new body ink.

On Saturday, the Migos rapper, 31, unveiled the giant tattoo of a portrait of the late emcee surrounded by illustrations of space that cover his entire back.

“Love you 4L & after ????????????️,” Offset captioned two pictures on Instagram of the inking.

Takeoff, whose real name was Kirsnick Khari Ball, was fatally shot in the head and torso during a night out in Houston, Texas, on Nov. 1, 2022. He was 28.

A few days after a star-studded memorial was held for Takeoff, Offset took to social media to say that his “heart is shattered” and the pain is “unbearable.”

“Love you 4L & after ????????????️,” the “Clout” rapper captioned the post.

“The pain you have left me with is unbearable,” the “Clout” rapper wrote on Instagram last November. “My heart is shattered and I have so many things to say, but I can’t find the words. I’ve been going to sleep and waking up hoping that all of this is a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare.”

Offset — born Kiari Kendrell Cephus — told fans that he wished he could hug, laugh, smoke and perform with Takeoff “one last time.”

“I know someone with a soul like yours is in heaven now,” he added. “I hope you can see how much we love you and miss you. You have left a hole in my heart that will never be filled.”

Takeoff was fatally shot last November. He was 28.

A month after the shocking death, the father-of-five shared that he was not doing well, tweeting that he was “in a dark place” while grieving Takeoff’s passing.

Earlier this year, Cardi B revealed that she and her husband, Offset, heard about Takeoff’s tragic death while in bed.

“We just fell asleep and out of nowhere, Offset phone kept ringing, my phone kept ringing,” she said on the “Jason Lee Podcast” in January.

“Offset picked up the phone and he’s just like, ‘No!’ And he screaming and screaming. And I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ He’s like, ‘Takeoff is dead.’”

Authorities arrested Patrick Xavier Clark and charged him with murder for Takeoff’s death. On Jan. 4, he posted his $1 million bond and was released from prison.

Per his attorney, Clark has maintained his innocence.
