They say a tattoo is for life, so when choosing a design, ensure it's one you'll happily look at when you're 80. With these age-old words of advice in his mind, Drake's dad, Dennis Graham, went to the tattoo parlor and got the one thing he knew he'd always love - his son. By this, we do not mean just his name but rather an actual portrait of his son's face! So, what did his famous rapper son have to say about the grand gesture? Safe to say, he was not too thrilled and made sure the whole internet knew about it! Here's what went down...

Taking to Instagram to let everyone in on the news, Drake shared a photo of the tattoo in question. Wearing just a white vest and posing for the camera, Graham's arm is covered entirely with a black and white sketch of his famous son. Notably, the image is of a younger Drake, looking directly at the camera and smiling. Behind the camera, however, an older Drake was not as happy, choosing to call out his dad in the caption. "@therealdennisg I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this we family," he wrote with three crying face emojis.

"Hahaha, I had 16 people to try and straighten this out, they're hurting me [face palm, crying face, and heart emojis]," Dennis replied in the comments. "I love you [heart emoji] and miss you." It wasn't just dad that joined the fun of the comments section. Soon enough, many of Drake's famous friends were jumping in, signaling their amusement over Graham's peculiar choice of tattoo. Rappers 2 Chainz and Popcaan both commented with crying face emojis. 

Drake's mama also had a viral moment on social media recently, teaming with Nicki Minaj for a hilarious behind-the-scenes video of the Young Money reunion concert. Nicki Minaj, who used to work alongside Drake for the music label Young Money, introduced Sandra. "Here's my mom - my ex-mom in-law," Minaj laughed to the camera. "Nah, I love you, momma. You look beautiful. I couldn't wait to see you and tell your son that don't speak to me no more." "Could you repeat that?" Sandra replied. "Tell your son...," Minaj began to say before all three of them laughed hysterically. Check out some other tattoo fails that had us laughing out loud.
