CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — Popular hip-hop artist Kid Ink recently wrapped up a whirlwind Pacific tour, where the “Show Me” and “Main Chick” rapper performed for thousands of troops at bases in Korea and Japan.

Sponsored by Armed Forces Entertainment, the six-performance jaunt kicked off on July 2 at Osan Air Base, South Korea, and ended Tuesday evening at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni on mainland Japan.

On Saturday, Kid Ink — who has more than 100 tattoos on his body — headlined the second day of the Fourth of July-themed Camp Foster Festival on Okinawa. The opening day featured platinum-selling singer-songwriter Jason Derulo.

Derulo, who performed in a wheelchair and on crutches because of a basketball injury, pleased the crowd with hits like “Whatcha Say,” “Ridin’ Solo” and “Talk Dirty.”
