Find Out The Story Behind The Drake Forehead Tattoo

You’ve probably seen the now-famous photo of the woman with “DRAKE” tattooed on her forehead. But you probably don’t know the details behind the (absolutely real) piece of ink — until now! Vice tracked down the tattoo artist, who not only revealed details on the woman’s visit (like the fact that her eyebrows were already shaved when she showed up), but he provides some extremely entertaining bon mots about Drake, aka “some goofnugget R&B dude.” Head below for the Top 5 Funniest Quotes From The Drake Tattooer about inking Drizzy’s name on a girl’s forehead.

In no particular order (although the last line is our personal favorite, even if it isn’t exactly Drake-related):

**”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.”

**”She was really psyched about it. She had the shitty font all picked out on her iPhone ready to go and was pretty adamant about putting it on her forehead… She acted as if she had planned it out for a while; though I’m not really sure how much extended coherent thought could actually go into getting such a stupid tattoo on your forehead.”

**”I guess I feel bad that this dumbass got the name of the softest motherfucker in hip-hop tattooed on her forehead.”

**”If I tattoo a huge “BK” on a Crip or tattoo “DRAKE” on some R&B crazed girl’s face, what’s the difference? Who am I to say which one is wrong and which is right?”

**”In my opinion this whole world’s going to shit, and shit rolls downhill, so I might as well just jump in, hold my breath, and pray to God that there’s a nice big soft puddle of diarrhea for me to land in once everything hits the fan.”

Please, do yourself a favor and read the whole interview over at Vice. And we’d like to thank Drake now instead of later for being indirectly involved in this story.
