A true fan will go to extreme lengths to prove their love for their favourite celebrity.

But while most of us settle for a copycat hair cut or a cheap imitation dress, one woman has gone the extra mile to show rapper Drake how much he means to her- by getting the hip hop star’s name tattooed across her forehead.

The mystery woman, who has shaved eyebrows and hair, adding to the dramatic look, visited an LA based tattoo parlour to make her bold statement.

It is thought that the unknown fan may be responding to a lyric in one of Drake’s songs, Free Spirit, which instructs a lover or listeners to, ‘tat my name on you so I know its real’.

Photos of the bold new look found their way onto the internet and have now gone viral.

Even Toronto-based musician Drake-real name Aubrey Graham- has seen the photos, reacting in disbelief at the permanent addition to the girl’s face.

The rapper told Mando Fresko that he wants to meet her and 'understand what happened'. He said: 'That's cool. I feel you 100 %. That to me is absolutely incredible. He added: 'It was love.

The Canadian rapper then exploded in a rant against the tattoo artist.

He said: 'The guy who tatted it is a ****ing ***hole. You should lose your job and never do tattoos again.'

He even threatened to 'f*** [the tattoo artist] up'

The musician appeared visibly upset by the pictures. He added: 'It's crazy, it's surreal- I don't even want to look at it anymore.' Graham is said not to have any tattoos himself.

Meanwhile Kevin Campbell, the tattoo artist at LA parlour  Will Rise, who is responsible for the work, has spoken out about his decision to go ahead.

He said  ‘She was really psyched about it. She had the sh---y font all picked out on her iPhone ready to go and was pretty adamant about putting it on her forehead.’

Campbell, who claims he asked the woman three times if she was sure about the inking, and explained possible future consequences to her, told Vice magazine, ‘She acted as if she had planned it out for a while; though I'm not really sure how much extended coherent thought could actually go into getting such a stupid tattoo on your forehead.’

Campbell assumed because of the neighbourhood that it was a gang-related tattoo, he said.
