Post Malone explains reasons behind his face tattoos

The rapper recently had the words 'Always' and 'Tired' tattooed under his right and left eye respectively

Post Malone has gone into further detail on the motivation behind his prominent face tattoos.

The Texan rapper had the words ‘Always Tired’ tattooed underneath his right and left eye respectively last month, complementing a ‘Stay Away’ tattoo that he had done above his right eye back in December 2017.

Speaking about why he chooses to get his face regularly inked, Malone said that he “had a face for the radio”.

“I tried to do something that’s relatively the same length of letters,” Malone told Tim Westwood during London’s Wireless Festival last weekend. “I guess ‘always’ is more letters than ‘tired,’ but I was tired so I didn’t realise.

He later added about his tattoos: “Anything to piss my mom off.”

“It’s not right. I got a face for radio anyways, so why not?” Watch the full interview with Post Malone below.

Malone’s performance at Wireless last weekend saw the rapper attempt to get involved with the World Cup fever which is currently sweeping England.

During his set, Malone took a moment to address the audience: “You guys are fucking awesome. You guys are lit as fuck right now! Football’s coming back!” The crowd then chanted the correct lyrics to ‘Three Lions’ – “football’s coming home” – back at the rapper as he punched the air and drank a beer.
