Drake calls out his dad for getting a tattoo of the rapper's face on his arm

Drake is still questioning a tattoo his father Dennis Graham got of the rapper’s face.

Apparently, the awkward ink wasn’t part of Drake’s plan. 

The ‘One Dance’ singer has seemingly held a grudge toward his dad for an incredibly odd-looking tattoo he received back in 2017, begging the question: “Why you do me like this?”


The tattoo was inked on Graham’s shoulder and depicts a serious-looking Drake, almost looking like he’s pouting.

The rapper took to Instagram to reminisce about the tattoo and poke fun at the hilarious design.

Tagging his father in an Instagram post, Drake said: “I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this, we family.”


It goes to show, even if you have millions of followers and streams, your dad can always find a way to embarrass you. 

Graham took the callout in his stride, responding to the photo in the comments, saying: “I love you and miss you.”

At least his heart was in the right place when getting the tattoo.

Drake’s dad also revealed that he had since made multiple attempts to try to fix the design for a more realistic resemblance.


He added: “Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out, they’re hurting me.”

The photo, unsurprisingly, had people in stitches in stitches, with many taking the opportunity to poke fun at the design. 

American comedian Druski commented: “NA MAN.”

While DJ Derrick Jones, better known by his stage name D-Nice commented: “I’m in tears.”


Whilst other commenters compared the rapper’s pursed lips to Ben Stiller’s Zoolander.

The tattoo was penned by artist Money Mikem, who shared the image on his website and raved about the experience at the time. 

He said: “Had the honour and privilege of tattooing @champagnepapi fathers portrait on the man himself @therealdennisg thank you again Dennis for the hospitality and for letting me do this for ya. CHUUUCH!”


Back in 2019, Dennis Graham had appeared on Power 106’s Close Conversations radio show to deny he had been an absentee dad and that the rapper had made up much of the fractured relationship in order to sell records.

Drake took to social media to deny the allegations, writing: “Woke up today so hurt man. My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him.

“It’s sad when family gets like this but what can we really do that’s the people we are stuck with.

“Every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept.”

If Drake’s latest social media post is anything to go off, the father and son are on much better terms.
