Drake’s father probably didn’t expect to get roasted for getting a tattoo of his famous son’s face on his arm in 2017.
But that’s what happened after Drake himself posted a photo of Dennis Graham’s ink on Instagram Monday. It shows Graham’s upper right arm and a portrait of a young, stubble-faced Drake rather lacking in proportions.
“@therealdennisg I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this we family,” Drake wrote in the caption alongside three emojis crying with laughter.
Graham replied with a string of the same emojis, as well as some facepalms and hearts, before admitting he “had 16 people to try and straighten this out,” “hurting” him in the process.
Standup comedian Druski, producer BeatKing, rapper 2 Chainz, DJ D-Nice and many others chimed in with digs of their own. Most left emoji-laden comments or typed-out laughter. British Afrobeat group NSG made a clever pun of Drake’s latest album, “Honestly, Nevermind.”
“Honestly, I mind,” wrote NSG.
While Graham endearingly played along with Drake’s ribbing, tattoo artist Money Mike seemed pleased after finishing Graham’s ink in 2017.
“Had the honor and privilege of tattooing @champagnepapi fathers portrait on the man himself @therealdennisg thank you again Dennis for the hospitality and for letting me do this for ya,” wrote Mike on his website at the time. “CHUUUCH!”
