Former X Factor contestant Derry Mensah has decided to show us just how much of an Usher fan he is by having the American star’s album name tattooed on his arm, as well as the name of one of the songs featured on it.
The Risk member got ‘8701’ and ‘Can You Help Me’ inked on his forearm and displayed the new body art on Twitter last month.
If you’re wondering why Derry is such a hardcore fan of this particular Usher album and song, he explained to a follower on Twitter:
I put the risk on my arm because I’m doing what I love to do simply because I’m in the group. If wasn’t, I’d still be trying to get to where I am now. I did 8701 because usher is my IDOL! His album got me into the the risk! “Can you help me” is on that album & that was my 1st audition song, that was only HALF the struggle in the whole show. But anyway its always gonna be the best song ever! :D
We can’t deny that 8701 is a good album, but we still wouldn’t get it tattooed anywhere on our bodies. Though maybe now he has the inspiration on his arm, he’ll use it to spend more time in the studio and less time partying with Anton from Big Brother.
