Drake Got a Tattoo of Denzel Washington!

Drake is adding even more artwork to his sizable ink collection!

Toronto tattoo artist Inal Bersekov, who regularly tattoos the 30-year-old rapper, uploaded two new designs on his Instagram on Sunday (September 17).

“‘Mo’ better blues’ first session on my brother @champagnepapi , thanks as usual for your trust. ‘Clarke: ‘Cause mo better makes it mo better’ @denzelwashington1 @officialdenzel,” he wrote.

Denzel Washington played the role of Bleek Gilliam, a fictional jazz trumpeter, in the 1990 Spike Lee-directed film Mo’ Better Blues.

That’s not the only piece he added.

Inal uploaded a second design: a portait of the late Fif, a member of Drake’s OVO Sound family who tragically died days ago.

Drake paid tribute to Fif on his Instagram, and now it appears he’s taken it one step further with a permanent portrait on his body.

Denzel Washington Heading to Broadway in 'Iceman Cometh' Revival

Denzel Washington is heading back to Broadway!

The 62-year-old Oscar-winning actor is set to star in the revival of The Iceman Cometh produced by Scott Rudin and directed by George C. Wolfe.

The play is “a drama set in a down-market New York bar and follows the conversations of the go-nowhere patrons. It is notoriously known as one of the playwright’s most demanding works — of its actors and audiences — as some stagings have run nearly five hours long,” according to THR.

The Iceman Cometh first debuted on Broadway in 1946 and was last revived in 1999 starring Kevin Spacey.

The limited 14-week engagement is set to begin previews on March 22 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater in New York City with opening night scheduled for April 26.

Denzel last starring role on Broadway was A Raisin in the Sun back in 2014.
