Several years ago, Drake's dad got a picture of his famous son tattooed on his arm. Recently,. Drake posted a picture of the tattoo on his Instagram, bemoaning the decision.
The Canadian actor turned rapper asked:
"I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this we family."
You can see the post here:
The tattoo is Drake circa his 2010 album Thank Me Later.
Drake himself has a tattoo of his father on his own skin.
It didn't take long for the reactions to Drake's post—and his father's tattoo—to come flooding in.
First, there were those who noted either due to the stencil, the time between the inspiration photo and now or other factors, the tattoo doesn't look...like Drake.
Bro really got a fake drake tattoo😂😂

The fact Drake and "fake" rhyme didn't help the ridicule, either.
Out of all the Drakes, Drake’s dad picked Dominican Drake for his tattoo pic.twitter.com/N5aJyw2pcx

Others were quick to come up with other people the tattoo looks like.
Maybe ill-fated NFL star and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez?
So he got an Aaron Hernandez tat?

Some said Rampage Jackson, an MMA fighter.
Once they moved past who the tattoo looked like, reactions concentrated on some of the more dubious aesthetic decisions of the tattoo.
WHY IS HE POUTING

Tattoo artist is the same person who makes the wax statues.

The tattoo artist in question, Michael Bowman, told i-D he "did it for free because it was a great opportunity. Dennis [Drake's father] was 100% blown away and in love with it!"
Finally, there were those who noted the apple doesn't fall far from the tree in terms of tattoo decisions.
