Drake has paid tribute to the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh with a special new tattoo on his forearm.
The Canadian rapper featured on Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Ganga Tattoo‘s Instagram account on Wednesday, December 22, showing off his new ink, a realistic tattoo of Abloh throwing a paper plane.
“A remembrance of the great Virgil Abloh done on Drake @champagnepapi @virgilabloh,” Ganga captioned the post.
Abloh, the men’s artistic director at Louis Vuitton since 2018 and founder of label Off-White, passed away last month after a two-year battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare type of cancer. He was 41.
Born in Rockford, Illinois in 1980, Abloh was an artist, architect, engineer, creative director, and designer. After earning a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin Madison, he completed a Master’s Degree in Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology in a curriculum founded by Mies van der Rohe.
Abloh’s brand Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh was started in 2012 as an artwork titled “PYREX VISION.” In 2013, the brand premiered a seasonal men’s and women’s fashion label showing runway collections during Paris Fashion Week since 2015.
