Drake Honors Virgil Abloh's Memory With New Tattoo

Virgil Abloh’s fans and loved ones continue to mourn the death of the high fashion juggernaut after succumbing to cancer last month. The fashion designer was admired globally for his contributions to hip-hop and popular culture. Abloh maintained relationships with some of hip-hop’s biggest artists including Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, and Drake.

Drake has been one to continuously honor Virgil’s work in life and he remains dedicated to paying homage after his death. 

Last month, Drake shared a touching post about his friend to his Instagram account. "My plan is to touch the sky 1000 more times for you…love you eternally brother," Drake wrote. "Thank you for everything." On Wednesday (December 22), it was revealed by Ganga Tattoo that Drizzy once again gave a nod to Alboh with some new ink.

Ganga's Instagram account shared a photo of Drake's tattoo that is of Virgil throwing a kite into the air. "A remembrance of the great Virgil Abloh done on Drake' @champagnepapi @virgilabloh Microrealism," the account wrote in the caption. Drake has yet to show off or reference the tattoo, himself, but it is a touching tribute, nonetheless.

Check out Drake’s new tattoo below.
