Last we heard from Gucci Mane, the rapper was hoping to stave off an "inevitable" return trip to prison by filing a "Special Plea of Mental Incompetency," or pleading insanity. Gucci was then shipped off to a mental health facility to determine just how "unable to intelligently participate in the probation revocation hearing" he really was. Just days after leaving the facility, apparently unsatisfied with his performance for docs, Gucci upped the ante by going to his local tattoo parlor and having that monstrosity above inked into his face: a big three-scoop ice cream cone, complete with red lightning bolts and his trademark phrase, "Brrr." We're not sure where the doctors stand all on this, but it's safe to assume that Gucci is not a sane individual.

Hip Hop Wired reports that the ice cream tattoo is the handiwork of artist Shane Willoughby, whose masterpiece was then posted on the Twitter of co-worker Jason Murray. We can only imagine the look on the judge's face the next time Gucci appears in court for a probation hearing and sees this rapper with this ridiculous tattoo on his face staring back at him from behind the defendant's table. Forget prison, Gucci might be committed to an asylum or given one of those Britney Spears' conservatorships after this latest stunt.

Gucci is also now the proud owner of the strangest face tattoo in rap, usurping the Game's Los Angeles Dodgers logo and those blacklight-only star tats on Lil Wayne's cheeks. While it doesn't make him any better to look at, Gucci will definitely gain even more notoriety now, with everyone from casual hip-hop fans to confused middle-aged parents forever referring to Gucci as "that rapper with the ice cream cone on his face."
