Drake was seen getting a new face tattoo which he’s dedicated to his mum. 

The 35-year-old rapper has a close relationship with Sandi Graham, 62, who he says has always inspired him to follow his dreams. 

As a way to demonstrate his love for her, Drake went under the needle, with footage shared online showing him getting her initials 'SG' branded under his eye. 

He shared a picture of the new tat on Instagram alongside a number of other photos and ‘Sandra Gale’ as the caption. 


While some fans described the tribute as 'cute', an overwhelming majority of the reactions are not all that positive. 

"Drake must be having his mid-life crisis already getting that face tattoo," wrote one on Twitter, while another said, "Not the face please not the face."

A third added, "Drake gets the worst tattoos ever," alongside a laughing emoji, with a fourth commenting, "Drake the typa guy to get the world's smallest face tattoo."

Others suggested that the real reason he got the ink job is to troll his dad. 

Earlier this week, the ‘One Dance’ singer called out his pops Dennis Graham for getting a massive tattoo of his face on his arm back in 2017.

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

Tagging his father in a 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.

Maybe Drake’s face tat is a way to get back at Dennis? As one Twitter user said: "Drake just trolled his dad (again) for his dad's tattoo of Drake's face."

As for Dennis, he took the previous callout in his stride, responding in the comments section: "I love you and miss you."

He also revealed that he’s made multiple attempts to try and fix the design for a more realistic resemblance, writing: "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out, they’re hurting me."

Unsurprisingly, the exchange 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."

Others compared the rapper’s pursed lips on the tattoo to Ben Stiller’s Zoolander.
