Drake jokes about his father’s tattoo on his face

It’s really a struggle for Drake to keep it quiet, just like he raps in “God’s Plan.”

Five years ago, Drake’s father Dennis Graham showed his love for his superstar son by tattooing his face on his arm. On Monday, the “One Dance” rapper expressed his opinion on Instagram.

“Just sat here thinking why you’re doing me this way, we family,” the OVO owner wrote at a close-up of the questionable arm ink, tagging his dad and including a few laughing emojis for good measure.

His dad took no offense and said “I love you ❤️😘💕 and miss you” and shared: “Hahaha I had 16 people try to make this right, they hurt me”, with some laughing emojis of him own.

Commentators were equally unimpressed, chanting “the hairline shade,” comparing his pursed lips to Zoolander and asking, “Is that Daddy Yankee?”

The father of the “Degrassi” alum originally had the piece done by tattoo artist Money Mike in 2017, with Mike sharing the image on his website and raving: “Had the honor and privilege of painting the portrait of @ champagne papi on the man himself.”

The ink tribute was a thank you to Drake, who tattooed his father on his own arm in 2014. Although the pair were previously estranged, they now seem closer than ever, at least according to their matching tattoos.

Dennis isn’t alone in paying tribute to their more famous relative. Ray J thanked his sister Brandy by tattooing her face on his leg in an imaginative style that got fans talking.

It’s unclear where Drake found the time to reminisce about his father’s tattoo, as he’s been busy lately partying with compatriot Avril Lavigne and “hunting hopping” with YouTuber Suede Brooks in St. Tropez.
