Jussie Smollett Tattoo

In the season 3 premiere episode of Empire Jussie Smollett shows off his tattoo.  We rarely get to see his ink but while he's performing his song "Need Freedom" we see the two bars he has on his right forearm.  We guess we can't consider "Need Freedom" Jamal's song since Nessa (Sierra McClain) stole the show.


While Empire's battle for the spotlight is typically between Hakeem and Jamal, Shine's artist, Nessa, came of no where, introducing the world to her beautiful voice.  We love seeing Lucious Lyon get proved wrong.  He planned to keep Nessa's microphone unplugged while she performed with Jamal.

The tattoo on Jussie's right forearm is an equal sign similar to the Human Rights Campaign logo.  It represents the fight for equal right for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people worldwide.  We hope Jamal Lyon continues to teach Lucious the importance of equality throughout the show's third season.

The image above shows the tattoo on Jussie's left forearm.  It's the first line of Michael Jackson's 1988 song, "Man In The Mirror." The tattoo reads, "I'm gonna make a change..." promoting the same message as the singer's other tattoo: Equality.  Empire is back and fiercer than ever.
