West Coast tattoo artist Kevin Campbell has reportedly responded back to Young Money's Drake and his threat of beating him up once they meet face-to-face.
Hopping on Twitter, Campbell said he is game for a faceoff and questioned Drizzy's issues.
"@ReeMuhh please say that Drake actually wants to f*ck me up. I will totally fight Drake. One on one. Tell him to name a time and place.," he tweeted December 23rd.
"Can anybody confirm that this Drake guy actually wants to fight?"
"@drake I'm a lover, not a fighter. PS Next to lovin', I like fightin'! I like fightin', it's excitin'!"
"@dharmicX Too funny! A dude who probably wipes his a** with 100$ bills actually cares about me calling him an R&B goofnugget is hilarious." (Kevin Campbell's Twitter)
Yesterday, Drake gave his reaction to Campbell tattooing 'DRAKE' across a woman's forehead.
"I have," Drake admitted when asked if he had seen the female fan's tattoo. "I want to meet her and understand what happened. That's cool. I feel you, one hundred percent. That to me is absolutely incredible. I don't even know if you can see it but this girl tattooed 'DRAKE' on her forehead. The guy who tatted it is a f*cking a**hole. I will tell you that. I don't f*ck with that guy. F*ck you to that tat artist by the way because you're an a**hole for real and you should lose your job and you should never do tattoos again and I don't f*ck with you and if I ever see you, I'm gonna f*ck you up. But real sh*t though, I really, really like [it]. I want to talk to this girl and understand it all, you know? It was love. It's surreal. I don't even want to look at it anymore because it's super surreal, you know? Yeah." (Mando Fresko)
Last week, Campbell poked fun at tattooing Drizzy's name on the customer's face.
"The funny thing is, I didn't know who Drake was, I figured it was her hood or some sh*t, not some goofnugget R&B dude. She was really psyched about it. She had the sh*tty 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, some of the guys at the shop asked her, and she just kinda giggled at them. When I printed up the first image of the lettering, she wanted me to go bigger, so that it went pretty much from each side of her hairline to the other. I thought she shaved her eyebrows for the procedure, so when I put the stencil on the first time, it was right over her (missing) eyebrows, but she had me enlarge it a bit and push it up towards the hairline. But yeah, 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."

Asked if he felt wrong about the eye-catching tattoo, Campbell said it was the woman's decision at the end of the day.
"I guess I feel bad that this dumba** got the name of the softest motherf*cker in hip-hop tattooed on her forehead. But what makes that any less valid of a tattoo to her? I lost a little sleep over it that first night, wondering if I wanted to be known as the a**hole who tattooed "Drake" on some crackhead's forehead. None of the face tattoos I had done prior to this got any publicity, so I was a little surprised that this one took off like it did. I'm still kinda debating whether or not I should send you guys the whole set of pictures, I don't really want to paint the shop in a bad light but it is what it is. In the end, she paid me to do this to her, which really means she did this to herself." (Vice)
