Post Malone has a distinct look about him, thanks in part to the increasing number of tattoos that adorn his face. It turns out that part of the reason he has so much ink above the neck may be because he doesn’t consider himself to be that physically attractive.
Malone touched on that point in a new GQ cover story, in which he says flat out, “I’m a ugly-ass motherf*cker.”
He goes on to speak about how his tattoos might be a sort of defense mechanism for him, saying, “It does maybe come from a place of insecurity, to where I don’t like how I look, so I’m 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.”
