Drake teases his dad about the arm tattoo he put on the rapper’s face in 2017
Drake is still not over the the tattoo that his father Dennis Graham had put on the face of the rapper five years ago.
The hip-hop mogul, 35, took to Instagram Monday to make fun of the old ink, posted the tattoo and tagged his dad with the caption, “Just sat here thinking why you’re doing me this way, we family,” with three laughing crying emojis.
His musician father, 67, wasn’t mad at the playful jab, explaining that he was trying to fix the artwork: “Hahaha I had 16 people to try and fix this, they’re hurting me.”

He then added a few tender words for his son and wrote, “I love and miss you.”
The ink, which is on the upper part of Graham’s shoulder, shows a younger Drake without his beard and with a short haircut.
Graham senior first unveiled his son’s face tattoo – done by artist Money Mike – in 2017.

Had the honor and privilege of tattooing @champagnepapi’s father’s portrait on the man himself @therealdennisg thank you again Dennis for the hospitality and letting me do this for you. CHUUUCH!’ the artist wrote on his website after.
A love of tattoos seems to run in the family, as the Canadian star has his own extensive body art collection, including his father’s mugshot, which he had colored in in 2014.
The hitmaker of God’s Plan has a total of 35 tattoos, including portraits of legendary singer Sade on his chest, a tattoo of singer Aaliyah on his back and a tribute to the late Louis Vuitton designer Virgil Abloh, who died in 2021.
He also has family ink with a portrait of his mother Sandi Graham, one of his four-year-old son Adonis, as well as his late uncle and grandmother.
