Drake Confronts LA Face Tattoo Artist

January 12, 2012

LA tattoo artist Kevin Campbell claims that Drake sent a security guard into his shop, Will Rise. Campell says that Drake stayed inside the car:

Campbell's dispute with Drake started when he gave a woman a gnarly "DRAKE" tattoo on her forehead. Afterward, Campbell told VICE that he felt only kind of bad and wasn't a fan of Drake's:

My whole deal with people wanting completely outrageous and potentially life-ruining tattoos is this: I’ll ask them three times if they really think it’s a good idea, I tell them what the potential consequences of getting a tattoo on their face might be, and after that, the bad decision is on them. I believe that people get the tattoos that they deserve…I guess I feel bad that this dumbass got the name of the softest motherfucker in hip-hop tattooed on her forehead. But what makes that any less valid of a tattoo to her?… I lost a little sleep over it that first night, wondering if I wanted to be known as the asshole who tattooed “DRAKE” on some crackhead’s forehead.

When asked about the tattoo before his visit to the shop, Drake called Campbell a dick. "The guy who tatted it is a fuckin asshole, though. I don’t fuck with that guy," he said. "Fuck you to that tattoo artist because you’re an asshole. You should lose your job and never do tattoos again. And I don’t fuck with you and if I see you, I’ma fuck you up.”
