Singer Faith Evans celebrates her birthday with a performance at LA Pride weekend in West Hollywood in Los Angeles, California on Friday June 10, 2016.
R&B singer Faith Evans commemorated her marriage to record label executive Todd Russaw with a tattoo on her chest that says “Faye & Todd For Ever” with a rose and heart. Unfortunately their relationship was not forever as the tattoo proclaimed, and they filed for divorce in 2011 after 14 years of marriage.
The rose itself is a cover-up of another tattoo. Looking closely, there are some black letters that can be seen through the red ink. Her original tattoo was “BIG ❤ Faye” for her husband The Notorious B.I.G., who died in 1997. She added the rose to cover-up BIG’s name, while leaving the heart and her own name visible.
She began dating Todd in 1997 while she and BIG were separated. They married in 1998 after Biggie’s death and she changed the tattoo shortly after.
Faith is still sporting Todd’s name years after the divorce and we don’t know if she has plans to ever cover or remove it. She remains in close contact with Todd as the former couple have two children together.
Faith Evans has a large tattoo on her upper arm which she has built up slowly over time. The tattoo displays her love for her children with her name, a heart, and all four kids’ names. The design also includes two cherubs shooting arrows which are another symbol of love.
When Faith began her career in the 90s, she had a much simpler version of the tattoo. It said “Faith ❤ Chyna” for her daughter Chyna, born in 1993, who was her only child at the time. Chyna’s father is music producer Kiyamma Griffin.
She married rapper Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace in 1994 and gave birth to their son Christopher Wallace Jr. in 1996. Faith added his name “Chris” to the tattoo along with two cherubs.
After Biggie’s death, she had two children with her second husband Todd Russaw. She of course added the names of “Joshua,” born in 1998, and “Ryder,” born in 2007.
In her most recent update to the tattoo, she added clouds around the whole design to tie it all together and set a heavenly scene for the cherubs.
