Toronto hip-hop star Drake may want to eat his words after an über-fan took his lyrics in "Free Spirit" a little too literally and got his name tattooed across her forehead.
In Drake's song "Free Spirit," the Toronto native rhymes, "Tat my name on you, so I know it's real/Tat my f***in name on you, so I know it's real/I know it hurts, but I ain't trying to hear it/Cause when I'm not around, I still be there in spirit."
Well, Drake's spirit might not be there, but his name sure has a permanent spot across this anonymous woman's forehead.
Kevin Campbell, a tattoo artist at Will Rise in Los Angeles, is responsible for the woman's ink. While he didn't release her name, he did spill the deets on the (arguably) dumb decision.
"She was really psyched about it. She had the sh**ty font all picked out on her iPhone ready to go and was pretty adamant about putting it on her forehead. She didn't say a word about what it meant to her," Campbell told Vice.com. "She acted as if she had planned it out for a while, but I'm not really sure how much extended coherent thought could actually go into getting such a stupid tattoo on your forehead."
Campbell said the woman only had enough money for the outline and is supposed to come back to finish the design. But she might already be having second thoughts, as Campbell said her mood changed "pretty drastically" when the session was over. (Can you blame her?)
So, does Campbell feel guilty? "I lost a little sleep over it that first night, wondering if I wanted to be known as the a**hole who tattooed 'DRAKE' on some crackhead's forehead," said Campbell. "In the end, she paid me to do this to her, which really means she did this to herself."
