What's the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Post Malone?
Is it his music? His whacky fashion sense? Or his heavy abundance of tattoos?
It's probably the latter. The rapper is notorious for his heavily tattooed appearance but it turns out that there's a lot more meaning behind his bizarre appearance.
Keep scrolling to find out why Post has chosen to ink his face, and see what he looks like tattoo-free...
You'll be shocked.
It's been one hell of a decade for Post Malone...Post, whose real name is Austin Richard Post, is a rapper who specializes in genres such as hip-hop, R&B, pop, and rock.
The New York-born rapper has shot up to unprecedented levels of fame in the last few years.Post released his debut album, August 26th back in 2016, but didn't make it into the charts until the release of his 2017 single, "Rockstar."
His music has been a roaring success...
He's won a handful of awards, too...The rapper has achieved 2 American Music Awards, a Billboard Music Award, and an MTV Video Music Award, which is a pretty impressive feat considering he only rose to fame 2 years ago.
So, it's needless to say...Post Malone is one of the biggest names in music of 2019.
But, when he isn't known for his music...He's known for something else entirely.
Post has a rather distinct style...The rapper's "quirky" dress sense has made him, not only one of the most successful musicians of the year, but the most recognized.
And it isn't difficult to see why...His heavily tattooed face and body, his long hair, which is sometimes transformed into a mullet, and eccentric dress sense are all to thank for this.
Post is literally covered...From his head to his toes in tattoos.
And his face is no exception to his love of ink...
His bizarre choice of ink sparked a lot of controversy...
