A teenage student from Russia has been inspired by American rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine to cover his face with similar tattoos.
The 17-year-old loyal fan, called Vladimir Roslyakov, even had his mum pay for the facial ink.
The controversial U.S rapper that Vladimir had decided to dedicate his facial tattoos has been serving a two-year prison sentence in the United States.
The musician, real name Daniel Hernandez, pleaded guilty to conspiracy, drug offences, drug trafficking and firearm offences.

Although he was released from prison early at the start of April, he is serving the remaining four months of his sentence under house arrest due to the coronavirus.
The Russian teenager, who hails from the south-western region of Sverdlovsk Oblast, revealed that he had only discovered the rapper over a year ago.

Although he was first inspired by the artist’s tattoos, the teenager has since come to also like his music.
Speaking to Newsflash about his dramatic new body art, Vladimir couldn’t wait to copy his idol.
“At first, I was shocked how you could get such tattoos on your body but then liked it and got one of those too.”

Although his mum has shelled out the cash for her teenage son’s ink, Vladimir explained that his family were initially not very fond of his face art.
“She pays for them because she knows that I’ll do it anyway so it’s better for me that I have them done in a tattoo salon rather than God knows where,” he explained about his mum’s decision.
Speaking about his family, he explained: “They now don’t react to them (tattoos) but they are at least happy when a new one is not on my face.”
Vladimir Roslyakov vowed to get more tattoos and even release his own rap album
Vladimir has vowed to launch his own rap career later this year and wants to carry on getting new tattoos.
In the meantime, however, he has also set his mind to finishing his studies.
“My studies were so-so in the ninth grade. Before then I was an excellent student but I’m getting bored often so I don’t have the willingness to study more. I’ll finish it though.”
