Drake, Dennis Graham, Tattoo

Money Mike Tattoos

Drake's dad just took fatherly pride to a whole new level!

Dennis Graham took a page out of his son's book and decided to tattoo a picture of the rapper's face on his arm. As you may know, Drake himself has several tattoos of family, friends and icons, including: Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, Aaliyah and even his father's mug shot. 

Dennis looked to celebrity tattoo artist Money Mike for the new ink, which is features the rapper looking over his shoulder and giving that Drake look we all know and love.

Money Mike opened up to E! News about the process, explaining, "I went to Drake's dad's birthday party and we were talking tattoos and it so happened that he wanted to get one. So I was persistent with him and a few days after we did the session and that was that."

He continued, "It was Dennis' idea. The birthday party was two weekends ago, and we did the tattoo session this past Monday. It was at his house. Drake wasn't there."

As for the finaly result? Money Mike said, "[Dennis] loved the tattoo. He was absolutely amazed by it."

Speaking of new ink, last week Drake immortalized Denzel Washington with a tattoo of the actor's character Bleek Gilliam from the 1990 film Mo' Better Blues tatted onto his arm by Toronto-based tattoo artist Inal Bersekov. 

But what was Drake's inspiration behind the ink? Bersekov told E! News that the rapper said Mo' Better Blues is one of his all-time favorites, adding, "That movie kind of inspired him."

Among the sexy star's many symbolic tats are the geographical coordinates of the places her children were brought into her life. They cover the spot on her arm where she had ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton’s name removed. Don't expect to see Brad Pitt's name on her body, though. She has said, "I'll never be stupid enough to have a man's name tattooed on me again."

David Beckham


It would seem the soccer stud is a man of few words, so he let's his tattoos do the talking. "I think everybody's got a way of expressing their feelings, and mine is through my tattoos," he's said. All three of his kids also share real estate on their dad's fit bod!

The brunette bombshell has multiple tattoos, including a William Shakespeare quote on her shoulder. In 2011, Fox began removing a portrait of Marilyn Monroe on her forearm. 

Britney Spears, George Maloof


Britney Spears seems to have selected her tattoos using the same careful process she used when selecting husbands and managers. The Kanji symbol meant to stand for 'mysterious' is thought to actually translate into 'strange'. Strange would also sum up the pink lips she had tattooed on her wrist the night she shaved all of her hair off.

Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott


Tattoo removal can be very painful so hopefully Dean McDermott hasn't jinxed his marriage by getting not one but two tattoos of wife Tori Spelling. Not only does he have Tori's name emblazoned on his wrist but her portrait stares out from his arm as well.
