Lil Wayne has stunned fans with his latest piece of body art after having the word 'Baked' inked on his face.

The Lollipop hitmaker has an extensive collection of tattoos, including the words 'Fear' and 'God' on his eyelids and teardrops on his cheeks, and now he has paid homage to Baker Skateboards with his new facial design.

The rapper has had the skate company's block letter logo etched on his forehead, but many also assume the phrase is a cheeky reference to his love of marijuana.

Lil Wayne is an avid skateboarder, and even announced plans to take a break from music earlier last year (12) to focus on his passion for the street sport.

He explained, "I picked up the skateboard and I thought it'd be a hobby and what happened is it's a lifestyle. You have to be fully committed because it's super scary. In order to be fully committed you have to live that lifestyle... It's kind of putting rap on the back burner. So I'll be on my skateboard in the meantime."
