Kanye West has paid tribute to two of the most special people in his life with new tattoos. The rapper got the birth dates of his daughter North West and late mother Donda inked during a late night visit to a London tattoo parlour.

Kanye was joined by his wife Kim Kardashian for the visit to Sang Bleu tattoo studio, and she shared pictures of his new body art with her 27 million Instagram followers.

The reality TV queen revealed that she talked Kanye out of getting a tattoo on his face, telling fans: "He got it on his wrists instead. His mother's birthdate and North's birthdate in Roman numerals".

The star's decision to get new sentimental tattoos came just hours after an emotional interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe. Kanye cried when he remembered his late fashion professor Louise Wilson, whose memorial service he attended during London Fashion Week.

"She said, 'So many students, they don't give it their all'," he told Zane. "'As soon as they do something good at two years old, three years old, their parents clap.' That's what she said. She just looked at me and said, 'Kanye, don't clap'."

The rapper continued to show his sensitive side on Thursday when he attempted to make peace with his fellow musicians, tweeting an apology to Beck for interrupting his Grammys speech.

"I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, I'm sorry Beck." Kanye wrote.

The 37-year-old also extended an apology to Bruno Mars, who he has previously criticised, and invited him to collaborate on a new song.

"I also want to publicly apologize to Bruno Mars, I used to hate on him but I really respect what he does as an artist."

"I also would love for Bruno to sing this hook on this song 88 Keys/ Puff and I produced… I even asked Tyler to shoot the vid."
