The tragic death of fashion designer Virgil Abloh stunned the fashion industry last month. Following his death, both celebrities and customers of Virgil Abloh’s apparel expressed their condolences. Drake debuted a fresh tattoo honoring the late designer only a few days ago.
Drake shared a photo of his arm tattoo honoring Virgil on Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Ganga Tattoo’s Instagram account yesterday, December 22.
The caption stated, “A memory to the great Virgil Abloh done on Drake.”
The tattoo depicts a man launching a paper aircraft from behind, which appears to resemble Virgil Abloh. The tattoo is inspired by a shot of Virgil Abloh flying a Louis Vuitton kite down a runway in 2018.
Drake took to Instagram after Virgil’s death to pay tribute to his late friend.
“For you, my plan is to touch the sky 1000 more times.” He captained the post and said, “I love you forever brother, thank you for everything.”
