Drake is paying tribute to late fashion designer Virgil Abloh, with a new tattoo.

A photo of the fresh ink was posted by Joaquin Ganga of Ganga Tattoo on social media Wednesday, just weeks after the fashion giant died at age 41.“A remembrance of the great Virgil Abloh done on Drake,” Ganga captioned the photo.

The piece, which appears on Drake’s left forearm, is based on a 2018 photo of Abloh throwing a Louis Vuitton kite down a runway at the gates of the Palais-Royal in Paris.

The Louis Vuitton creative director and Off-White founder died on Nov. 28 after a two-year battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare form of cancer. He was 41.

In addition to his contributions in fashion, Abloh was a DJ and served as Kanye West’s longtime creative director. He also helped design iconic album covers by West, A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert and Pop Smoke.
