A photoshop wizard has given us a glimpse into what the controversial rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine, could look like without his facial tattoos and multi-colored hair... And the finished result has shocked us all.

If there's one thing Tekashi 6ix9ine is known for, it is his rather eccentric aesthetic.

While some will know him for his music, and others for his controversial snitching, everyone will recognize the rapper for his heavily tattooed face and rainbow-colored hair. But what does he look like behind all the tattoos? Keep scrolling to find out...

In the last couple of years, the rapper has been dominating the headlines...

But for all the wrong reasons. In 2017, he developed a unique persona as a hardcore rapper, but became embroiled in the violent world of gangs.

Real name Daniel Hernandez, the musician didn't get off to the best start in life.

When he was thirteen, his father was murdered just one block from his family home.

The experience had a huge impact on Tekashi, and he soon dropped out of school and started working odd jobs to help his mother.

"My pops died in eighth grade, and I just started bugging in school," he told the podcast "No Jumper" in a 2017 interview, "I was thirteen. I was waiting for my pops to come back home, and he never came."

In order to make ends meet, the teenager turned to selling drugs...

Thus marking the birth of his street persona, Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Yet, despite his rocky start to life...

The young rapper found huge success with his music. Tekashi's first proper single was "Gummo." Released in November 2017, it hit the Billboard charts and was remixed by the likes of Offset and Lil Wayne.

And he has mingled with some big names...

In 2018, 6ix9ine released "FEFE," a collaboration with Nicki Minaj, Murda Beatz, and Kanye West.

However, the rapper has consistently been in and out of trouble with the law.

When Tekashi was nineteen and still rising through the ranks of internet fame and notoriety, he attended a party on February 22, 2015, where he performed several sexual acts with a thirteen-year-old girl. He was first arrested in March 2015 but, miraculously, he managed to avoid any prison time.

But that all changed one month later...

In November 2018, the federal authorities announced a series of indictments against Tekashi, his manager, Kifano Jordan, and others they said were members of the Nine Trey Gangsters, a notorious New York street gang.

Tekashi was allegedly a member of this gang.

The federal lawsuit accused the rapper and the rest of the crew of running a drug-dealing ring and enforcing their activities through violence.

Tekashi was denied bail.

After he initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, the judge denied him bail, citing an FBI raid in September that found an AR-15 assault rifle and a stolen ID from a man robbed in Times Square.

But in January 2019, after months of the rapper being held, he suddenly changed his tune.

He suddenly entered a guilty plea to the charges related to his involvement with Trey Nine, according to court records reviewed by INSIDER.

He controversially agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors in their investigation.

Tekashi began opening up about his doings while in the gang. "I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him. The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey," he told the judge, according to a court transcript.

Altogether, he spent nearly 2 hours on the stand - wearing blue prison scrubs, a white undershirt, and his trademark rainbow-colored hair styled in pigtails.

In a courtroom potentially filled with current or former Nine Trey members, he testified that he became a member in November 2017, and participated in violent crimes, including shootings, assaults, and drug trafficking.

He outed several members of the gang.

Directly in front of them. He nervously pointed at the defendants, Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack, and Anthony "Harv" Ellison, and ID'd them as Nine Trey Gang Members.

Other musicians shared their thoughts on Hernandez's cooperation...

And many publicly disapproved, both of Tekashi's actions and his snitching... Because you know what they say - Snitches get stitches.

But all this snitching evidently paid off.

Because he was sentenced to only 2 years in prison with 5 years of supervised release. The judge also imposed 300 hours of community service when he is released from prison and a fine of $35,000.

But, out of nowhere, the rapper was suddenly released from prison just 3 weeks ago.

Why? Well, it's thanks, in no small part, to the ongoing medical pandemic sweeping through the world right now. The rapper apparently has severe asthma, meaning he falls into the "at-risk" group for the deadly virus.

He spent seventeen months in federal custody.

His lawyer filed the motion, referencing the spread of the virus within the US prison system. He stated that he believed that the rapper should be allowed to serve the rest of his 2-year sentence at home.

And, after several appeals to Judge Paul Engelmayer, who sentenced him, as well as the US Bureau of Prisons...

He is now enjoying the comfort of his own home which is, of course, unbelievable to hear.

Since his release, Tekashi has been bombarding his social media accounts...

And he changed his Instagram bio to "I'M BACK AND THEY MAD." Arrogance at it's finest.

The rapper has wasted no time with getting himself back into the music scene...

On May 8th, Tekashi released his new track, "Gooba", complete with a grotesque music video... And it has already surpassed 214 million views on YouTube.

It's clear to see that a little prison time has affected Tekashi's attitude...

And nor has it his eccentric style. The rapper's hair is as luminous as ever, and it is making us all wonder the same thing...

What would he look like without all the tattoos and hair dye?

If you didn't think the rapper had too many facial tattoos before, you certainly will now.

Once erasing the tattoos, Mitchell then moves onto the hair.

He selects the multicolored top knot and fully erases it, before replacing it with... Drumroll, please...

The forehead and incredible hairline of Ricky Martin.

I want Ricky Martin's hairline...

Anyway, Mitchell spends some time blending the skin tones together...

Until Tekashi has a convincingly normal head of hair.

And the finished result is remarkable.

He's quite handsome under all those tattoos, isn't he?

For a little comparison...
