Post Malone’s most famous tattoos and their meanings – Page Six

Posted in Tattooing on Jun 29, 2021

Post Malones unique style is just as recognizable as his distinct musical sensibility.

The artist, whose real name is Austin Post, has tons of tattoos covering his head, neck, body and perhaps most notably, his face.

The Circles singer has spoken about his affinity for facial tats in the past, attributing his ever-growing collection to a lack of confidence in his appearance.

Im a ugly-ass motherfker, Malone said in a 2020 interview with GQ.

[The face tattoos do] maybe come from a place of insecurity, to where I dont like how I look, so Im going to put something cool on there so I can look at myself and say, You look cool, kid, and have a modicum of self-confidence, when it comes to my appearance.

However, not all of the Texas natives ink is intended to distract; the singer also has plenty of designs dedicated to his hometown, religion, inspirations and aesthetics.

Below, see some of Post Malones most famous tattoos, and learn more about their meanings.

Perhaps Postys most famous tattoo, these two under-eye designs serve as a cheeky replacement for concealer after a long night.

Located above his right eyebrow, this tribute to one of Malones favorite Nirvana songsis also a warning for anyone who might get too close to the superstar. The placement was inspired by the late Lil Peep, who had CryBaby inked in the same spot, he told GQ.

After Lil Peep died from a drug overdose in 2017, Malone tattooed the rappers portrait complete with the CryBaby tattoo on his arm.

Malone will always hit the jackpot with a perfect 21 on his forehead.

Though some might equate Malones forehead barbed wire with Jesus crown of thorns, the musician admitted, I dont know, I just think barbed wire is cool. Hes also got barbed wire on his hands, and has incorporated it into other designs as well.

Swords are fking awesome, Malone told GQ of the knife tattooed down the side of his face. What better way to make my mom mad than a nice big claymore on my face?

Malones accidental Marshmello tattoo features a smiley face with Xs for eyes, much like the infamous DJs helmet. While the Rockstar singer has a tiny Playboy bunny logo tattooed under the smiley face, its not his only ink dedicated to Hugh Hefners empire; Malones first tattoo ever was a large version of the logo on his forearm, which has since faded.

To ring in 2020, Post Malone got his biggest face tattoo to date: a huge medieval gauntlet and flail, referencing the suit of armor he sported in the Circles music video.

I have cut my hair even shorter, also skeletons are cool, the singer captioned a photo of the flaming skull inked on the side of his head.

Done by artist Ruben Reza backstage after Postys concert in Kansas City, Missouri, in February 2020, the bloody buzzsaw sits on his left cheek.

Theres really nothing to it, Malone said of one of his most recognizable tattoos, which spans his entire neck.

Jesus is very handsome so I figured, How could we make him super metal?, Malone said of this depiction of Christ with melting flesh.

Yes, Malone even has a tattoo of his own likeness. As hes explained, it was created by superimposing his face onto the body of a video game character on horseback but its missing his signature face tattoos (for now, at least).

While many of Malones tattoos nod to the weird, funny or simply meaningless things he enjoys, he has yet to debut Doritos-inspired ink. The brand created a commercial depicting the triangular chip as an addition to his many face tattoos, but the singer has yet to follow through in real life.
