​Machine Gun Kelly Shaves His Head After Getting Matching Tattoos With Travis Barker

Machine Gun Kelly has debuted his new look on social media, having shaved off his bleached-blond hair to reveal a completely bald head - also just one day after getting matching tattoos with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.

The 31-year-old rapper, whose real name is Colson Baker, explained he shaved his head for the video for a new single called 'Papercuts', on which he has collaborated with videographer Cole Bennett.

MGK teased on Twitter: "I shaved my head for this @_ColeBennett_ 'papercuts' tomorrow 9pm."

And that isn't the only change he's made to his body recently, having also revealed new matching tattoos with Barker just 24 hours beforehand.

The friends both got 'Born with Horns' inked on their arms to pay tribute to MGK's forthcoming album, which was produced by Barker.

They posed in an Instagram video, holding up their forearms to proudly reveal their tats, with a caption reading: "Born with Horns' the album. Back for round two..."

Barker commented: "Let's f***in goooo."

Last month, MGK also revealed another new tattoo on his neck, resembling a vertical cut right down his larynx.

He shared a video on his story, with the text: "Here it is. It's my birthday week, love y'all."

A lot of people weren't particularly impressed by the rapper's gnarly new look, with one commenting on his Instagram post: "My cat could have done that for free."

Another added: "Looks stupid as hell."

Some people speculated there might be a possible link with a previous post of his, in which he revealed that he wears a drop of his girlfriend Megan Fox's blood on a pendant around his neck.

On Valentine's Day, he had shared a photo of himself alongside Fox, writing: "I wear your blood around my neck."

For her part, Fox shared a photo collage of Kelly, with the caption: "There goes my heart/ manifest outside of my body/ draped in the towering silhouette of a most unusually handsome boy.

"Magical and haunted/ kinetic and tortured/ ethereal and dangerous/ cosmic lawless eternal creative genius/ the journey will likely be perilous/ but there is no destination without him.

"Happy Valentine's Day rehab barbie."
