MTV – On his Rick Ross-assisted song “Free Spirit,” Drake rhymed, “Tat my name on you so I know it’s real.” And last week, a young lady in Los Angeles proved to Drizzy—and the Internet—just how real it was, in a viral photo of herself, with shaved eyebows and the word “DRAKE” boldly tattooed across her forehead. VICE magazine caught up with Kevin Campbell, the tattoo artist at LA shop Will Rise, who penned the work on her forehead.
“She was really psyched about it. She had the sh—y font all picked out on her iPhone ready to go and was pretty adamant about putting it on her forehead.
She didn’t say a word about what it meant to her,” Campbell recalled. “…She acted as if she had planned it out for a while; though I’m not really sure how much extended coherent thought could actually go into getting such a stupid tattoo on your forehead.” Despite the woman’s initial excitement, Campbell said “her attitude changed pretty drastically” once the tattoo was complete.
Although I’m sometimes ashamed to admit it, I like Drake too. But, I have seen him grow from a character on Degrassi to a hip hop star, out of nowhere, and am pretty sure he’ll die out just as fast. Sadly, this girl wanted to share her enthusiasm for the rapper by getting his name tattooed across her forehead for everyone to see. Why did it need to be so big? Why your fucking forehead for christ’s sake?!
Either way, this is probably one of the worst tattoos I have ever seen. This has nothing to do with the skill of the tattoo artist, just the stupidity of the girl who chose to do this. At this point, Mike Tyson‘s tattoo seems rather nice…in comparison that is.
