Trying to keep it peaceful really is a struggle for Drake, just like he raps in “God’s Plan.” 

Five years ago, Drake’s father Dennis Graham showed his love for his superstar son by tattooing his face on his arm. On Monday, the “One Dance” rapper voiced his opinion on Instagram. 

“I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this we family,” the OVO owner captioned a close-up of the questionable arm ink, tagging his dad and including a few laughing emojis for good measure. 

His father did not take offense, commenting, “I love you ❤️😘💕 and miss you” and sharing, “Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out,they’re hurting me,” with a few laughing emojis of his own.

Commenters were equally unimpressed and called out “the hairline shadow,” compared his pursed lips to Zoolander and asked, “Is that Daddy Yankee?” 

The “Degrassi” alum’s dad originally had the piece done by tattoo artist Money Mike in 2017, with Mike sharing the image on his website and raving, “Had the honor and privilege of tattooing @champagnepapi fathers portrait on the man himself.”

The ink homage was a thank you to Drake, who tattooed his father on his own arm in 2014. Although the pair was previously estranged, they now appear closer than ever, at least according to their matching tats.

Dennis isn’t the only one to pay tribute to their more famous family member. Ray J thanked his sister Brandy by tattooing her face on his leg in an imaginative style that got fans talking. 

It’s unclear where Drake found the time to reminisce about his dad’s tat, as he’s been busy lately, partying with fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne and “yacht hopping” with YouTuber Suede Brooks in St. Tropez.
