Once considered the most extreme examples of body modification, face tattoos have become so mainstream that pop stars and celebs alike are taking on the trend. Actually, a number of famous faces are well known simply for their bold ink! But there may be a few stars that you weren’t aware are all about the trend.
So, why so many face tattoos? It’s one of the last few ways a star can come off as a rebel. “If you want to be transgressive — and a lot of rappers want to create a transgressive character — the last frontier is the face,” Anna Felicity Friedman, a scholar who runs the Tattoo Historian website, told The New York Times.
“Some of it is to give them a rebel/criminal allure. And some of it is a more artistic or free-spirit reference.” Check out this comprehensive list of stars who have tattoos on their faces!
Post Malone doesn’t have such reservations. The “Better Now” rapper has the words “Stay Away” on his right brow, and the words “Always” and “Tired” under his right and left eye, respectively.
“I tried to do something that’s relatively the same length of letters,” Post Malone said in July 2018 when speaking with Capital Xtra‘s Tim Westwood. “I guess ‘always’ is more letters than ‘tired,’ but I was tired so I didn’t realize.”
Post Malone also has a length of barbed wire across his forehead, a sword on his right cheek and the Playboy bunny mascot (among other things) on his face. “Anything to piss my mom off,” he added.
Lil Wayne has always been known for his tattoos. The rapper has stars, a cross, and more all tattooed on his face. Not to mention, the rapper has accrued quite a lot of ink on the rest of his body over the years, as well!
Over the course of his career, Chris Brown‘s style has gone through a whole evolution, and that includes the introduction of more and more tattoos. The R&B artist boasts quite a lot of ink on his body, and even some on his face. The rapper notably was spotted with a sneaker on his cheek while attending the Grammys.
