Celine Dion Begs Drake To Not Get Her Face Tattooed On His Body!

Drake has previously mentioned in the past that he wants to showcase his love for Canada’s own Celine Dion by getting a tatto of her face on his body. He has a history of inking famous women on his body, including Aaliyah, Rihanna, and Sade to name a few, but Celine doesn’t want him to go through with this one.

In a recent interview with iHeart Radio, Celine was asked about Drake’s mentioning of getting her face tattoo’d, to which she turned to the camera, and begged Drake not to do it.
