Yesterday, Drake took to Instagram to show off his new tattoo. The hip hop artist revealed that the tattoo was a portrait of his father, Dennis Graham. The tattoo was done by Dr. Woo of Hollywood, California’s Shamrock Social Club.

Here is what Drake had to say about his dad last year in a XXL interview:

“My dad is a star,” Drake said. “That’s what you have to understand. I can call my dad right now and be like, ‘Yo, dad, I need you to fly to shoot.’ He’s always down. I’m living my dad’s dream. My dad wanted to be a famous singer. I have my dad on another bonus record on the album called ‘Heat Of The Moment.’ It’s a real relationship. Not to be ironic, we go through the motions of a father-son relationship. Right now, he happens to be extremely stable and content, and I take care of what I can for him. All he wants to do is go to Beale Street in Memphis and play music. He’s rediscovered his passion for music and for being a musician.

“Like any other family, there have been dark times,” Drake added. “There have been other interviews where I was asked about my dad and I didn’t want to talk about it. And there were records where I didn’t paint my dad as the greatest guy. At the end of the day, my dad knows I love him and that he’s a great friend of mine, but as far as being a father goes, I look forward to being a better father for the children that I have. But at the end of the day, he is a great man and I love him very much.”
