Inal Bersekov, a Toronto-based tattoo artist, posted photos of Drizzy’s latest ink to Instagram on Saturday. The Washington tat is a portrait of the actor as Bleek Gilliam, his jazz trumpeter character from Spike Lee’s 1990 film Mo’ Better Blues.
“Mo’ better blues’ first session on my brother @champagnepapi,” Bersekov wrote. “Thanks as usual for your trust.”
Washington joins the late Aaliyah, R&B singer Sade, and Lil Wayne, all of whom are immortalized as tattoos on Drake.
Bersekov also gave the “Hotline Bling” rapper a tattoo of Anthony “Fif” Soares, a friend and OVO Sound affiliate who died in a shooting in Toronto last week, according to reports. “Was honored to pay tribute tattooing ‘FIF’ on my brother @champagnepapi. Rest in peace,” the artist wrote.
Drake wrote a tribute on Instagram at the time of Soares’ death. “RIP to one of our family members…our brother… I still can’t even believe this morning was real,” it read. “It was a honor to have shared years together and I will always keep your memory alive Forever Fif.”
Drake also has images of his mother and father on his back, as well as a “mini portrait” of his father’s mugshot on his arm. He recently told Celine Dion that he wants one of her, too, so maybe his body will get some of that “Power of Love.”
