It's been 12 years since Gucci Mane shocked the internet when he got a huge ice cream cone tattoo on his face. Now, the rapper is saying if he could do it over again, he probably would not make the same decision.

Gucci Mane Talks Infamous Ice Cream Tattoo

Gucci Mane is on the heels of releasing his new album Breath of Fresh Air, which dropped on Oct. 17. Last week, he sat down for an interview with The Morning Hustle. During the discussion, Guwop was asked about him being a trendsetter in the face tattoo department.

"I wouldn’t take credit for starting the trend, but I think I definitely made people think it was something cool to do," Gucci said at the 9:34-mark of the interview below. "I was going through something when I did it. If I could do it over again, I probably wouldn’t have did it. But, I don't regret it all."

"People don’t know the backstory to that," he added. "That backstory to that is, I wasn’t in a healthy place at the time. That was just a sporadic thing I did."

Gucci Mane was arrested on multiple occasions that April on charges of battery and aggravated assault. He served three months in jail for the charges later that year.
