Many people claim to truly love their favorite musician, but a woman recently proved her devotion to Toronto rapper Drake with a Drake forehead tattoo.
Vice caught up with tattoo artist Kevin Campbell of Will Rise in Los Angeles, who inked the outline, to see what motivated the woman to get such a prominent tattoo. “She was really psyched about it,” he said, indicating that she was “adamant about putting it on her forehead” and that “she acted as if she had planned it out for a while.”
When asked the obvious question — whether he felt bad about giving the Drake forehead tattoo — Campbell responded as sensibly as possible, considering the situation.
“My whole deal with people wanting completely outrageous and potentially life-threatening tattoos is this: I’ll ask them three times if they really think it’s a good idea, I tell them what the potential consequences of getting a tattoo on their face might be, and after that, the bad decision is on them,” he explained. “As far as having a choice, yeah, sure, I could have turned her away, and I’m already getting a ton of flack from other tattooers for this, but the way I see it, if she’s got her little heart set on getting her forehead tattooed then she’ll just keep on trying until somebody finally goes through with it.”
Campbell indicated that this probably won’t be the last we’ll see of the woman with the Drake forehead tattoo, as she’s due to come back in to finish the tattoo when it heals.
