Drake Aaliyah Tattoo: Rapper Inks Singer’s Face on His Back
Drake and tattoos have been the topic of conversation lately, only this time, instead of a random woman inking his name on her forehead, it’s the Young Money MC who’s gone under the gun to get some ink of a famous face.
The 25-year-old Toronto native was snapped without his shirt on during a game of tennis recently and in the photo, an image of deceased R&B singer Aaliyah appears on his back.
Drizzy posted the photo on his Instagram account — a photo app available to iPhone users; the photo can be viewed here — Sunday (Dec. 25), however, there’s no word on when the ‘Headlines’ rhymer received the tattoo. Aaliyah’s face is inked on his back with an image that seems to be of a dove flying above her head.
Fans of Drake know the rapper is a true fan of the fallen songstress, whose life was cut short on Aug. 25, 2001, when a plane she was in crashed while flying over the Bahamas.
On his debut LP, ‘Thank Me Later,’ the track ‘Unforgettable’ samples Aaliyah’s 1994 song ‘At Your Best (You Are Love),’ off her first album, ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number.’ Last year, he wrote an open letter to the lauded chanteuse, where he admitted he was “truly in love” with her for her style of dress and the confidence she showcased in her music.
