Through a work event, I had the awesome opportunity to meet the king of cool, Vanilla Ice. The man is a living legend for any kid growing up in the 90's. He crafted classic hip hop jams and took the world by storm.
He also ranked number 1 on my Top 10 - A Turtle Tribute (to Secret of the Ooze).
After Ice and I tackled our work endeavor, I mustered up the guts to ask him the big question, "can I see your TMNT tattoo?" Being a super rad guy, he was eager to show off his passion for Turtle Power. After a quick hike of his pant leg, I got a glimpse of his awesome ink that paid homage to TMNT 2: Secret of the Ooze.
Like me, the man embraces his TMNT past. Although I consider myself a TMNT superfan, Vanilla Ice has me beat. He was in one of the movies and has a Turtle tattoo. I can't say the same!
Vanilla Ice, a big THANK YOU for taking the time to chat and snap a photo with me. #NinjaStrong
