Yeah, color me confused.
I mean, I love music. Love it to my core and have listened to Nas’ “Illmatic” more times than I can count, but would I tattoo “N-A-S” on my forehead to express just how much I love his work? Hell nah. And yet, some people continue to stamp their bodies with useless tattoos of artists that may or may not be hot a few years from now.
Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against tats, I’m inked. But I do have everything against face tattoos (that aren’t cultural) and I’m judging even harder if your face tattoo is of anybody’s name, especially a rapper’s.
But that’s exactly what a young LA woman did earlier last week. She strolled into a tattoo shop and wanted Drake’s name on her forehead.Why? She didn’t let on, but the funny thing about the whole situation? The tattoo artist had no idea who Drake even was.
He told Vice: “The funny thing is, I didn’t know who Drake was, I figured it was her hood or some shit, not some goofnugget R&B dude.”
I can’t imagine walking around with a tattoo on my forehead, let alone DRAKE stamped across my dome, but for this young lady…I guess he was “da best.”
Do you have any crazy tattoos you regret? Would you ever get an artists’ name tattooed on you body?
