Post Malone is no stranger to ink, with countless tattoos adorning his arms, neck and face — including the barbed wire on his hairline and “Stay Away” above his brow. On Wednesday, the rapper added a new piece to his collection and got the words “Always Tired” tatted underneath his eyes.
The ink was done by tattoo artist Chad Rowe of Underdogs Tattoo Gallery in Indiana, who called the experience “one of the most surreal moments of my entire life.” Post Malone — born Austin Post — was in The Hoosier State for the Indianapolis stop of his Beerbongs & Bentleys tour when he paid Rowe a visit. In an Instagram post, Rowe went on to say that he also had the honor of tattooing members of Post’s crew and that the 22-year-old artist even returned the favor by inking Rowe’s hand.
Photographer Adam DeGross was also on site to capture the moment when the rapper went under the needle. See Post Malone’s newest tattoo below.
