Just three weeks after the tragic death of Louis Vuitton and Off-White designer Virgil Abloh, his close friend Drake got a permanent tattoo in tribute to the designer inked on his arm. According to E! News, Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Joaquin Ganga posted on Instagram the meaningful tattoo he recently created for the rapper, which has a range of ink dedicated to notable figures including Denzel Washington and Aaliyah.
“A memory of the great Virgil Abloh made on Drake,” said the caption. The detailed image, which showed the fashion designer’s back as he launched a kite in the sky above him, looked a lot like a photo of Abloh from 2018, where he saw a deer float – flying Louis Vuitton from the runway of a parade in Paris. The founder of the Off-White label died on November 28 at the age of 41 after a private battle with a rare form of cancer. Following the news of his tragic death, Drake took to Instagram to honor his friend. “My plan is to touch the sky 1000 more times for you. I love you forever brother, thank you for everything,” he captioned a series of photos.
In March 2020, Abloh helped design Drake’s private jet, which was unveiled to have a sky-blue and cloud-covered makeover, a nod to the cover of Drake’s 2013 album, “Nothing Was The Same “. According to E! News, Abloh also designed a Patek Philippe Nautilus watch for him, with Drake thanking the designer and his work in his 2020 single with rapper Future titled “Life Is Good”. Drake rapped on the track, “Virgil has a Patek on my wrist that’s going crazy.” (ANI)
