Drake Gets a Denzel Washington Tattoo

Drake Gets a Denzel Washington Tattoo

But Drake's latest tattoo is of Denzel Washington, with the rapper opting for a design of the fresh-faced Oscar-winner as jazz trumpeter Bleek Gilliam in the 1990 Mo' Better Blues.

Drake has a penchant for getting tattoos of his creative inspirations, no matter how goofy or ill-advised most folks might think it is. Next up? None other than Denzel Washington. He has two tattoos of Sade, one of Lil Wayne, and another his father.

"'Mo' better blues' first session on my brother (Drake)", wrote tattoo artist Inal Bersekov, who shared the in-progress image on Instagram.

Drake's tattoos are something like a hall of fame, paying tribute to some of his favorite people. It comes after Drake revealed he wanted to get Celine Dion's face tattooed on his body.

Bersekov is also responsible for another one of Drake's recent tattooes - a tribute to Anthony "Fif" Soares, a longtime friend of Drake's who died last week. Check out the new work below.
