Drake + Security Team Confront Tattoo Artist in Los Angeles
It appears Drake kept his promise to confront the tattoo artist who willingly etched "DRAKE" in all-caps into the forehead of a female customer. Kevin Campbell, who works at tattoo parlor Will Rise in Los Angeles, detailed the confrontation on his Twitter page recently. If you were expecting a dragged-out brawl between the two men, well, think again.
According to Campbell, Drake did show up at his place of business, but stayed in the car and instead let his bodyguards do the dirty work. "Guess you could call it sorted out. When Drake was in LA last, he parked out front the shop and sent in his huge security dude," Campbell tweeted. He then clarified on his Facebook page of what the bodyguard said to him when he entered the shop. "Drake sent his security detail into the shop to inform me that 'Nobody is going to hurt Drake in the state of California,'" he wrote.
If you remember, in an interview with radio personality Mando Fresko, Drizzy had some choice words for Campbell, who called the 'Motto' rapper a "goofnugget R&B dude" in a Vice magazine interview. “F--- you to that tat artist by the way," Drake seethed. "And you should lose your job and should never do tattoos again and I don’t f--- with you. And if I ever see you, I'ma f--- you up."
Campbell feels that Drake ruined his own reputation now that he supposedly stayed in his limo while his security team issued their verbal threats. "Drake said he would beat my a--, not me. Now I'm just embarrassed for him. He made himself look like a weenie," he tweeted. "Twitter's just a pseudo reality that gives p--sbags an open forum to talk s--- to people they would never consider confronting face 2 face."
