Post Malone Admits His Face Tattoos Come from “A Place of Insecurity”

In a new cover story for GQ Style, Post Malone revealed that insecurities are the reason behind his face tattoos.

“I’m a ugly-a** motherf***er…it does maybe come from a place of insecurity,” he says. “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.”

Posty also opens up a bit about his mental health saying he’s been very sad for most of his life.

“Middle school, I would cry myself to sleep every…day. High school, the same thing. I tried to drink some beers to get rid of that s**t, but it just never goes away. And I don’t think that’s anybody’s fault; it has to do with something predisposed in you.”
