The tattoo is actually spelled "Memento Mori" which in Latin means "remember death."

The rapper spoke this past weekend on the Adam22 podcast about losing Miller.

"When your hero dies f*** that s***," he said. "I don't want to make music no more."

Lil Xan already has multiple tattoos on his face and responded to criticism of his new art by posting another photo showing them off.

"I do this for me,I could care less if this makes me ugly because that's what I was going for," the caption on the photo read. "Ugly is the new Beautiful,well not really but there's some truth to that,I love you guys."

He also disabled the ability for visitors to post comments on his Instagram page.
