Snoop Dogg has found an interesting way to remember his friend Nate Dogg, who died earlier this month. 

The "Gin and Juice" rapper got a tattoo sleeve of Nate on his arm, with the phrase "All Doggs go to Heaven" written underneath.

"Tha tattoo u been waitin 2 c. My bro Nate Dogg by @Misterctoons," Snoop wrote on his Twitter page and posted a pic of the image on Saturday.

Nate Dogg, whose real name was Nathaniel Hale, died of congestive heart failure on March 15 at the age of 41. He was well known for his collaborations with musicians including Snoop, Eminem, and Dr. Dre.

"We lost a true legend in hip hop and R&B," Snoop tweeted. "One of my best friends and a brother to me since 1986, when I was a sophomore…I love u buddy luv. U will always be with me forever and a day. You put the 'G' in G funk. You put the '1' n 213. And you put yo stamp on everybody you ever did it with."

Snoop, The Game, and Warren G were among the many hip hop artists at a memorial service for Nate Dogg on Saturday.
