Post Malone surprised fans with an impressive skull tattoo on the side of his newly-shaved head.

The 24-year-old added to his ever-increasing collection of face tattoos with a large skeleton design, outlined in black ink, that covered half of his head.

“I have cut my hair even shorter, also skeletons are cool,” Malone captioned the snap on Instagram, and he added a positive message of encouragement to his 21.9 million followers.

“Spread your heart as much as you can. A little love goes farther than you think. Stay strong, and keep kicking a*s.”

Earlier this year, the Sunflower hitmaker discussed his face tattoos, and candidly confessed that he was prone to ink his face due to his insecurities.

“I’m a ugly-a*s motherf**ker,” Malone told GQ Style. “(The face tattoos do) 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.”

He also shared his dream of having a sword tattooed on his face with the publication, and thinks the unusual ink makes him “more interesting”.

“I feel like the face tattoos make me interesting to look at, so where I might lack in handsomeness, I make up in intrigue at least,” he mused.

Post Malone is gearing up to make a splash in the wine market.

The Rockstar hitmaker has teamed up with entrepreneur James Morrissey of Global Brand Equities and music manager Dre London of London Entertainment to launch Maison No. 9.

Described as a “light, high-quality, accessible rosé from Provence, France”, the wine will be available to purchase online and in stores from June.

“Rosé is for when you want to get a little fancy,” the 24-year-old said. “It’s a nice switch up and I have been thinking about doing my own wine for a while. It was great to work with Global Brand Equities because they saw the vision and we got to do some super cool stuff. Maison No. 9 goes down smooth, and you’re all going to love it!”

The name Maison No. 9 was inspired by Post’s favourite tarot card, the Nine of Swords, and represents “overcoming the daily challenges we all face”.

Working closely with winemaker Alexis Cornu, the musician and his co-founders spent much of 2019 testing different grapes and sampling blends until they settled on the final product.

“Intense and inviting aromas of freshly picked fruit, such as ripe pineapple, pear and strawberry, meet hints of sweet French desserts once uncorked. The clean, dry, crisp finish is balanced and round with a texture that is mouthwatering and savoury, perfect for drinking on its own or with a variety of dishes,” a company representative added.

Maison No. 9 will be available in three sizes and priced from $21.99 (£18) per bottle.

Post Malone quietly relaunched his lifestyle brand Shaboink on Monday with a donation of 40,000 N95 face masks to frontline workers across the U.S.

Originally launched as a CBD company last summer, the plan was for Shaboink to relaunch as a fully-fledged lifestyle brand, with the addition of apparel, accessories, and merchandise.

However, the Sunflower hitmaker altered his plans amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis, and has instead partnered with Direct Relief to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to doctors and nurses on the front lines.

“I’ve been working with my team on a number of unreleased products that fit into my lifestyle that I can’t wait to share with my fans,” he said, reported Rolling Stone. “(But) when faced with Covid-19, I knew it was important to pivot to products that could help us stay clean now, so we can get back to shaboink’ing later.”

In addition to the mask donation, Shaboink’s website will relaunch with pre-packaged Clean Kits – containing hand sanitiser, face masks, hand soap, disinfectant wipes, and disposable gloves. The kits also include individual packets of vitamin C “crystals” to help boost immunity.

The items come in candy box-style packaging, which the rapper, real name Austin Richard Post, confessed is designed to cheer people up throughout the challenging times.

“I just wanted to make something that’s fun, and Shaboink is about having fun at all times,” he shared, adding that a portion of sales from the kits will be donated to Direct Relief. “We’re all in a pretty s**tty time right now but we’ll get through it; let’s keep clean and kick this thing’s a*s.”

Post Malone has joined forces with eyewear brand Arnette to launch a collection of sunglasses inspired by his face tattoos.

The Rockstar musician is known for the collection of inkings he has on his face, including the words “Stay Away” above his right eyebrow, “Always Tired” under both eyes, a bloody buzzsaw on his left cheek, barbed wire along his hairline, and a medieval gauntlet and flail down his right cheek.

Post has now taken inspiration from his body art for his latest collaboration with Arnette. The four-piece drop is comprised of white and black plastic frames with the words “always tired”, written in the same cursive font as his tattoo, on the lower portion of the black lenses. The collection also includes a futuristic style with yellow lenses and a black frame featuring the words “Stay Away” in cursive writing on the top right portion. The location of the writing mirrors where the tattoos sit on Post’s face.

The styles, which are available from Sunglass Hut, are designed to be unisex and are sustainable, as they feature bio-based plastic frames and come in eco-friendly packaging.

Post, who also models the eyewear in campaign images, recently opened up about his ever-growing assortment of tattoos.

“I’m a ugly-a*s motherf**ker (sic),” the 24-year-old told GQ magazine. “(The face tattoos do) 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.”

Mark Wahlberg has warned Post Malone against getting any more face tattoos.

The actor appears alongside the Circles hitmaker in upcoming movie Spenser Confidential, and the two built up a solid friendship during their time working together.

During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this week, Mark revealed that he had talked with the 24-year-old about his extensive selection of inkings, but lamented that the rapper didn’t seem particularly moved by his words.

“Yes, I have (spoken to him), and you know what, he’s now since added more to his face,” he quipped.

Mark then explained how he tried to get his own tattoos removed before his role in 2010’s The Fighter. However, the process took much longer than he had anticipated.

“It took me five years to get the tattoos removed and it’s dreadfully painful,” the 48-year-old shared. “It’s like hot bacon grease getting flicked on you over and over and over again. I told Posty, it’s gonna be a lot of Bud Lights trying to get those things off you.”

When host James asked what Post’s response was, Mark added: “He says what every kid says, what I said when I got my tattoos. ‘Oh no, no, no, they all have meaning. I’m going to keep them forever.’

“But then you realise, I’m pushing 40, I’ve gotta do something about this.”

In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Post stated that his face tattoos are all part of his effort to make himself feel better about his looks.

“I’m a ugly-a*s motherf**ker… 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,” he told the publication.

Amber Rose hits back at critics of new face tattoos

Amber Rose has defended her decision to have her sons’ names tattooed onto her face.

The model/actress took to Instagram earlier this week to upload two snaps showing her new body art – the words “Bash” and “Slash” in italic script across the top of her forehead – a tribute to her boys Sebastian, six, and four-month-old Slash.

However, many of Amber’s 19 million followers were quick to criticise her bold inkings, with one writing, “Why on your beautiful face. Of all places?” and another adding: “That’s not real. No way. Please no.”

But it appears the 36-year-old is unfazed by the backlash, and in a post on Wednesday, she commented, “Beauty is not what’s on the outside… it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Inside of my P**sy and inside of my heart.”

She also uploaded a note where she fired back at claims that she was “too pretty” for a face tattoo.

“For the people that are telling me I’m too pretty for a face tat are the same people that would tell me I’m ‘too pretty’ even if they thought I was ugly and lie to me Lol (laugh out loud). Or they would just tell me I’m ugly,” she wrote. “So either way the moral of the story is do whatever the f**k you want in life – Muva.”

Amber is the latest celebrity to get a face tattoo. Her partner, Def Jam record label executive Alexander ‘A.E’ Edwards, who is the father of baby Slash, got the birth dates of the two children on his forehead with a lightning bolt in between the numbers earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Chris Brown, Post Malone, and Presley Gerber have all taken to social media in recent weeks to display their new facial designs.

Amber shares Sebastian with her ex-husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa.

Post Malone has had an image of a buzzsaw dripping with blood tattooed onto his face.

The Rockstar hitmaker has added to his extensive body art collection by getting the design inked on the centre of his left cheekbone.

Taking to Instagram, tattoo artist Ruben Reza of Junction City Tattoo posted a close-up of the fresh ink on Thursday. He also indicated that Post had decided to get the buzzsaw motif added shortly before his Runaway Tour concert held at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri on Wednesday night.

“Last night at the sprint center in KC (sic). Thanks again homies see you in Austin,” Ruben captioned one snap.

Post, real name Austin Richard Post, has not yet spoken about why he decided to get the buzzsaw design. However, he won’t have much space left for any further tattoos, as he already has several on his face and neck.

In January, New York-based tattoo artist Kyle Hediger tattooed an image of a medieval gauntlet holding a flail on his right cheek. The design runs from the end of his sideburns on his cheek, down alongside his ear, and ends at his chin.

And at the time, Post admitted to TMZ.com that getting the new tattoo was a painful process.

“It hurt like a motherf**ker,” the 24-year-old confessed. “It’s like a gauntlet and like a flail, it’s like a big spiked bar on a chain. It’s pretty brutal. I wanted to do it for a while, but finally, I said, ‘F**k it and let’s do it.'”

Post also has a long dagger down his right cheek, “always tired” written under both eyes, barbed wire just underneath his hairline, as well as the words “stay away” and a pack of cards on his forehead.

Post Malone has entered 2020 with a “brutal” new tattoo on his face.

The Rockstar hitmaker has added to his extensive tattoo collection by getting a medieval gauntlet holding a flail inked on his face, with the body art running from the end of his sideburns on his right cheek, down alongside his ear, and ending at his chin.

Post admitted to TMZ.com that getting the new tattoo was a painful process.

“It hurt like a motherf**ker,” he confessed. “It’s like a gauntlet and like a flail, it’s like a big spiked bar on a chain. It’s pretty brutal. I wanted to do it for a while, but finally, I said, ‘F**k it and let’s do it.'”

The new body art, which was inked by New York-based tattoo artist Kyle Hediger, joins the numerous tattoos he already has on his face, including a long dagger down the same cheek, “always tired” written under both eyes, barbed wire just underneath his hairline, as well as the words “stay away” and a pack of cards on his forehead.

Post showed off his new ink as he performed on America’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve TV special from Times Square in New York, where he suffered a minor slip-up during his headlining set and briefly lost his footing.

He laughed off the incident and continued with the show, helping to mark the new decade with performances of Circles and Congratulations.

Meanwhile, the star is also jumping feet first into film in the New Year after picking up a part in Mark Wahlberg’s upcoming movie Wonderland.

“By no means am I gonna be an actor because I’m pretty s**tty at it, but I try my best. Now especially with this new tattoo, I can only really play the bad guy, the tough-looking guy I guess, you know, more s**t to come,” the 24-year-old said, before joking, “I got a face for radio.”

Post Malone has partnered with bosses at Bud Light on a limited-edition merchandise and clothing collection.

The Rockstar hitmaker is already working with the beer company as the headliner of the Bud Light Dive Bar Tour, set to take place in New York City this month, and now he’s taking the partnership even further by releasing exclusive products.

“It’s cool to be able to grow my relationship with Bud Light and collaborate on a merch collection with them,” he said in a statement. “Feels good to give the fans something that represents a good-a*s time.”

Evoking Post’s eclectic personal style, the merchandise collection features unisex streetwear pieces, including a jacket, acid-wash printed premium denim, vintage printed T-shirts inspired by a 1996 Bud Light rodeo campaign, emblematic Anheuser-Busch hoodies, and sweatpants, as well as accessories like a branded gym bag. The rapper, Austin Richard Post, worked with his creative team, Travis Brothers and Brian Vera, to create the line, with notes from his upcoming album cover art and unreleased lyrics on select pieces.

“Post has such a unique style. He’s an artist who is truly comfortable with himself and that’s one of the many reasons so many people love him,” added Shana Barry, director of Experiential for Bud Light, of the 24-year-old. “We have always thought about launching a merch collection but doing it with an artist that we’ve watched grow over the years makes it so much more special. We love that Post and his team were able to take some classic and iconic Bud Light imagery and infuse it into the collection that we hope people love.”

Items are priced between $10 and $250 (£8 – £206) and will go on sale at a pop-up shop in New York City on 4-5 August and on Post’s website.

Country star Luke Combs has followed in rapper Post Malone’s footsteps and teamed up with designers at Crocs for his own line of shoes.

The singer-songwriter has revamped the Classic Clog for a limited-edition style, which will go on sale during the CMA Fest 2019, which takes place in Nashville, Tennessee from Thursday until Sunday.

“I’ve worn Crocs for a long time, and no one loves them as much as me, so getting the chance to design my own pair of the Classic Clog is cool as hell,” Combs said in a statement.

“I had so much fun creating these and hope fans have just as much fun wearing them.”

The Classic Luke Combs Clog is decorated with Jibbitz-branded charms, giving a nod to the star’s personality and roots, with designs including a North Carolina sign in tribute to his home state, local moonshiners, a Nashville city logo, and a guitar pick.

The shoes are priced at $60 (£48) and can be purchased at the Crocs booth at Fan Fair X on Broadway at the CMA Fest while supplies last, according to editors at Footwear News.

Post Malone debuted his first Crocs collection in November 2018, while stars including Drew Barrymore, Zooey Deschanel, and Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer have also fronted advertising campaigns for the comfortable shoe brand.

The 29-year-old released his debut album, This One’s for You in 2017, and is touring the U.S. in summer.
