Post Malone is no stranger to tattoos. Besides enormous amounts of talent, the 24-year old rapper is known for his trademark face tattoos. Just last month, the musician got a massive gauntlet and flail tattooed onto one of his cheeks.
Post Malone is finishing up the final leg of his tour, he has a hit record and he starred in a Super Bowl commercial for Doritos. The man in on top of the world right now. And what do people do when they love tattoos and are on top of the world? Probably get new tattoos. Well, that’s exactly what Post Malone has done.
The genre-blending rapper has no added four pieces of ink in less than two months. Three of those tattoos have been on the extremely limited space on his face.
The first was a massive gauntlet and flail on his right cheek. In a January interview with TMZ Post Malone talked about his newest addition to the ink family.
“It hurt like a motherfucker,” Malone says. “It’s like a gauntlet and a flail… it’s like a big spiked ball on a chain, it’s pretty brutal. Finally, I said fuck it, let’s do it.”
Then, just last week Posty added a potentially Fallout themed tattoo on the other side of his face. It’s a bloody buzzsaw and looks pretty brutal. It’s a bit smaller than the previous which is good. It’s good because when he runs out of space to tattoo on his face, we journalists may be out of a job.
And now, Posty has added two more bits of ink to his collection. We’ll start with the one not on his face. The new tattoo was posted by Tyla Yahweh who we’ve seen hanging with Posty in the past.
We recently reported on Yaweh for his song with Wiz Khalifa that Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong more than just backed. Yaweh posted the video of the two with the caption
“Bff tats 💕 @postmalone.” The new tattoos say “POSTY CO.” Check them out below.
Tyla Yaweh is also on tour for this leg of Posty’s Runaway tour.
The next bit of ink for Post Malone is his newest face tattoo. This one falls much more in line with his previous face pieces of a gauntlet and buzzsaw. The newest tattoo is a bloody hammer on his right cheek. The picture was posted by Zachary Lowhorn and shows the gruesome new ink.
Some day, Posty will run out of space on his face and that will be a sad, sad day. But that day is not today.

Good news for Post Malone fans. The rapper/singer recently stated that he hopes to put out a new record in 2020. Even though his most recent LP Hollywood’s Bleeding just dropped in September, Posty wants to keep creating.
Posty is currently on the second North American leg of his tour. Following that run of dates, Post Malone hopes to be back in the studio.
You probably most recently saw Posty in his hilarious new Doritos ad for their new flavor. That’s because the genre-blending artist was notably absent from the recent Grammy Awards, even though he had been nominated for two categories.
Post Malone cites that he needed some rest and relaxation for a bit before he hits the road again.
“I’m taking it nice and easy,” he says in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “I needed a little break because I’ve been partying a little hard, so it feels good to be back home and playing Call of Duty. I’m going to take some R&R and get some beauty sleep so my body and voice doesn’t suck on tour. If I go to L.A., I’ll get into trouble.”
After this next leg of the tour though, Post Malone hopes to head back into the studio simply saying, “I hope to have a record out for the fans in 2020.”
Malone is well known for his work with Osbourne. The track “Take What You Want” from Hollywood’s Bleeding featuring Osbourne and Travis Scott hit No. 8 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The three also performed on stage together at the American Music Awards late last year.
Posty says he “had no idea” that Osbourne’s condition was that serious. He then furth comments on their time together. “Working with him and hanging out with him and being around him, you can’t tell,” Malone says. “You can tell he has a little difficulty getting around, but he’s so strong.” Malone also says “He’s [Ozzy] going to keep kicking ass.”
