Young Money’s Drake has reportedly followed in Lil Wayne’s footsteps, getting fresh ink on his body a day after Weezy F. Baby showed off a facial tattoo.
According to reports, Drizzy paid homage to a couple of late family members with the ink this week.
Is this week “Young Money’s National Get Tatted Week”??, first Lil Wayne gets a tat on his forehead, now Drake gets one across his back, however Drake’s is more sensible. The rapper is showing respect to a couple of family members in the form of new ink. Drake went under the needle in honor of his uncle and grandmother. The images tattooed on his back, of his uncle who he credits for a lot of his success and his grandmother Evelyn Sher, who helped raised him, she recently passed away thanksgiving of 2012. Drake has shown his appreciation for them before on a track titled “Look what you’ve done” off his “Take Care” album. (Gossip Daily)
Just yesterday, his Young Money boss revealed a face tattoo.
You know what they say: “New year, new face tattoo.” At least that’s what Lil Wayne says. The rapper-turned-skateboarder decided to pay homage to skateboard company Baker the best way he knows how–by tattooing the word “baked” on his forehead. Weezy, who already has stars, a lightning bolt and teardrops (among other things) tattooed on his noggin, chose the area above his right eye for his new ink because… that’s the only place he has left?

A couple years ago, Drizzy added late R&B icon Aaliyah to his body.
Drake may have the flimsiest hand in Hip-Hop, yet the rapper keeps a firm grip as he flexes in this new gym shot. The Young Money superstar has been working up a sweat as he prepares to take his ‘Club Paradise’ tour on the road, sharing his progress with fans on picture platform, Instagram. Kudos on the svelte physique, but those tattoo’s (Aaliyah one included). No. (That Grape Juice)
