New York City, NY – Part of Drake’s physical aesthetic is a collection of tattoos that feature the faces of various people that he admires, and among the most recent is Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington. The subject of Drake’s inked Mo’ Better Blues tribute was brought up during Washington’s appearance on TheTonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (November 23).
After Fallon showed Washington the picture Drizzy’s tattoo artist posted on Instagram, Fallon asked the audience if they knew where exactly the tattoo appeared.
“Now you got me wondering, where is that [on his body]?” Washington asked while grabbing the picture out of Fallon’s hand. “That’s crazy. But I think he got some other people he admires.”
