Bariki Smith: Tattoos
Bar has a number of face tattoos, including a forehead tattoo on his right which says ‘NORM’, a teardrop near his eye and a forearm tattoo.
He also has a face tattoo which reads ‘YR474’ above his left eyebrow, which several fans have questioned in relation to its meaning.
In 2019, Ashley shared her frustration – on Twitter – over Bar wanting to go and get a tattoo instead of helping her watch their daughter Holly.
His face tattoos are tributes to friends who passed away, with ‘YR’ referring to a rapper who is known as Young Rell.
The teardrop is one of the most widely recognised prison tattoos and has various meanings, which can signify that they have been in jail.
It can also acknowledge the loss of a friend or family member, amongst other potential meanings, but we don’t know Bar’s reason behind the tattoo.
