Post Malone Reveals the Reason Behind His Face Tattoos: 'Anything to Piss My Mom Off'

Faces and tattoos go together like beerbongs & bentleys for Post Malone. The “Rockstar” rapper showed off his latest tattoos last month, when he got “Always” inked below his right eye and “Tired" below his left eye.

"I tried to do something that’s relatively the same length of letters," Post said in an interview with Captial Xtra's Tim Westwood during London's Wireless Festival over the weekend. "I guess 'always' is more letters than 'tired,' but I was tired so I didn’t realize."

Fans thought insomnia was the impetus for adding to his collection, but Post revealed to Westwood the real reason he started inking his face: “Anything to piss my mom off.”

“It’s not right. I got a face for radio anyways, so why not?” Post said.

The William Wallace Claymore sword Post has on the right side of his face is dedicated to his love for medieval props, which he claims would beat out the dagger-happy obsession of 21 Savage, whom he’s touring with during the European leg of his beerbongs and bentleys tour.

“It’s slaughter-game Posty,” he joked.
