SKEPTA GETS SIGNATURE OVO OWL TATTOOED AT FOREVER YOUNG INK

The relationship between Drake and Skepta has been well documented throughout social media. Drake, whom some accuse of riding waves, has shown immense appreciation for British culture and music. Drake even has a tattoo to let fans know it’s real. Last year, the Toronto superstar tattooed the logo of Skepta and JME’s label, Boy Better Know. Plus, add that to the fact Drake brought Skepta out at OVO Fest in Toronto last year and even appeared in a small club to party with the Section Boyz. This appears to be one instance Drake is just showing his appreciation for a culture, not wave-riding.

This year, Skepta didn’t make an appearance at OVO Fest even though he was in Toronto. Instead, the London MC decided to return to the U.K. with something even more memorable. Skepta took to his Instagram to show a tattoo of his own, the signature OVO owl. The photo was captioned, “From Toronto with solid bullet proof love.”  Skepta also went to Instagram to let fans know that he isn’t stopping with just this tattoo. The grime star plans to eventually have all the skin on his body inked up as well. This cross-continental bromance definitely appears to be a forever thing. "The tattoo was very spontaneous but he was committed to the idea of 'Forever' so we just made it work " says Jenn De Torres who did Skepta's tattoo. 

Shop Life - MAY 2015

As we get closer and closer to the better half of Summer, the focus for as always has been create endless work that our followers love. We've had a lot of great moments at FY - March and April of this year were certainly up there - but May was OUTSTANDING. Last month we were fortunate enough to have 23+ weather, and some special guest appearances. 

The month started out with some inspiring stories from clients who had been through some dramatic times.  Some old friends who had known each other from birth all decided that it would be fun to seal the deal with some initial tattoos. These moments translated to custom tattoos that they will share with people forever.

Below are some of the month's best memories you may have missed. Check them out and leave us some feedback for some cool idea's you may have!
