Photoshop Expert Removes Post Malone's Face Tattoos And Tidies Up Hair

A photoshop expert has revealed what Post Malone might look like without his distinctive face tattoos and unkempt hair. See here:


YouTuber Mitchell Wiggs took it upon himself to transform the appearance of the musician back in 2019, and the video has since been viewed more than 16.6 million times.

The video sees Mitchell make a series of tweaks, removing each tat one by one and adjusting his skin tone.


He then cuts away the frizzy bits of his hair, until ultimately, the 25-year-old rapper is left looking more like an estate agent, possibly called Charles or Hugh.

In reality though, the fella is only getting inkier and inkier.

In December, he explained the sound reasoning behind why he opted to get a new tattoo while on a trip to the dentist.


Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Post - real name Austin Richard Post - was questioned about a social media update from August which showed him getting some new ink while his dentist looked on.

He explained: "Two birds with one stone. Why not?

"I mean, you know we talked about it and we were just like, you know, I'll be sitting around for hours doing nothing anyways.

"You know, why not get two bad things out of the way at the same time?"


Makes sense.

In a Posty post last June, he showed off a shorter haircut, revealing a massive skull tattooed on the side of his bonce.


Alongside the photo he wrote: "I have cut my hair even shorter, also skeletons are cool.

"Spread your heart as much as you can. A little love goes farther than you think.

"Stay strong and keep kicking ass. Love, Austin."

He followed that update with another in July, which gave fans a glimpse of even more of his new etchings - including a skull, spider and a succubus.


Those tattoos already had plenty of company on his face, where there's also a sword, a Playboy bunny logo, some barbed wire and the words 'stay away' and 'always tired'.

Speaking to GQ last year, he revealed that his self-confidence, or lack thereof, might be the reason why he's ended up getting so many tattoos.

He told the publication: 'I'm an ugly-ass mother f***er. 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."

While he previously joked to Tim Westwood: "I got a face for radio anyways, so why not?"

Come on Posty. Hold that inky head high.
