Despite having a few tattoos on his back, Drake’s label boss Lil Wayne wasn’t with the idea of Drake getting tatted up. In a interview with MTV a few years ago, Drake spoke on Weezy giving him advice on the body ink.

“He told me something I never thought I’d hear him say, which was, ‘You’re the ultimate artist. You’re better than me. You don’t have the tattoos, you don’t cause any trouble. People like you.’ He was like, basically, ‘Look at me and look at you.’

I remember when I was about to get a tattoo, Wayne got serious with me, he was like ‘Do Not Get No Tattoos. Never in your life. That’s not you’. Don’t get no tattoos because they gonna think you got it because you came around me.’ He said the same thing to me [during the Rikers visit]: ‘Don’t change yourself, please. You got it. I’ve never met a young dude that has it figured out, but you got it. Don’t mess it up. Just be you. Sing! Rap! Be you. Don’t stop smiling.’ That’s what he said.”

Are these tattoos a good look for Drake?
