AceShowbiz - Offset is the latest musician to get a portrait tattoo in honor of Virgil Abloh. On Tuesday, April 26, the one-third of Migos took to Instagram Story to give fans a look at his new ink.

The design features the late designer a wearing a Louis Vuitton shirt and sunglasses. In the caption of the photo, which was shared on Instagram Story, the 30-year-old emcee penned, "Do it for 'V.' "

Offset had been a close friend of Virgil. In a lengthy eulogy published by Vogue last December, the husband of Cardi B wrote, "What Virgil represented to me, is [someone who is] boundless. By that I mean his willingness to break the rules, to do the things people said he couldn't."

"He was all about taking that, surpassing it and challenging yourself on every project. Every project that Virgil would touch would excite the world - the world would lose its mind," the rapper continued. "He was passionate about the arts and the youth. He was always seen in young brands, and he supported the younger generation."

"Every time you saw Virgil, he had a smile on his face. Every person that I know that reached out to him, he would help - from clothing, to an album cover, to any new project coming out. He was just so involved with the culture," he added. "Most people get to his level and they don't really help those coming up. But he was always humble, and always trying to do something new."

Also getting a permanent tribute to Virgil was Drake. In December, the Canadian star got himself a tattoo that showed a man from the back in the process of throwing a paper airplane. Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Joaquin Ganga, who uploaded the photo, tagged Virgil's Instagram handler and wrote, "A remembrance of the great Virgil Abloh done on Drake."

Virgil passed away at the age of 41 on November 28. He died after secretly battling cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare, aggressive form of cancer, for two years. A number of musicians have since offered tributes to the former Louis Vuitton artistic director.
