Drake: What Does His New Face Tattoo Mean?
Drake is rocking new ink. The Toronto rapper was out over the weekend at Tyrone “T-rex” Edwards’ Nostalgia Party. Photographer Brent Kore snapped a shot of Drake on his Instagram Story and fans couldn’t help but notice that Drizzy had a new tattoo on his face.
Right above the rapper’s right eyebrow reads the word: “miskeen.” The word has Arabic and Aharic (Ethiopian Semitic language) origins of the word miskin meaning “poor.” It is also used in Toronto as slang for “misfortune.” According to the University of Toronto Magazine, it means “a pathetic person or situation.”
The rapper has not publicly clarified the meaning of the tattoo for him.
This is not Drake’s first face tattoo. Last year, he got a face tattoo honoring his mom. He got his mom Sandra Gale’s initials ‘SG’ tattooed under his left eye.
