It’s Post Malone like we’ve never seen him before.
Posty surprised his followers on Monday (June 29) when he finally gave a full view of his new buzzcut and the massive tattoo he got inked on his skull just over a week ago. Without captioning the image, the “Congratulations” rapper’s new look left a jaw-dropping first impression on fans as the superstar posed in front of a dark background while baring his shirtless, tatted-up body and pulls from his cig.
Posty first teased his visibly shorter hairstyle on June 21 via Instagram in a selfie, which also revealed the huge skull design on the right side of his head. “I have cut my hair even shorter, also skeletons are cool,” the rocker announced at the time. “Spread your heart as much as you can. A little love goes farther than you think. Stay strong, and keep kicking a—. Love, Austin.”
Although the “Sunflower” star’s transformation received mostly mixed reviews at the time, fans couldn’t help but admit how eye-catching Posty looks now.
“Hardcore! And I’m Loving it. Yes!!!!🔥🔥🔥🔥” one user wrote, as another complimented, “Love the new hair cut and the new tats hun.”
Posty has even swayed some naysayers.
“I wasn’t for this at first but d—n the s—t actually looks so good 🔥” one user admitted, as someone else chimed in with, “At first i was upset he cut his hair bc he is like my #1 celeb crush but actually looking at the cut i think he looks really good.”
The 24-year-old has been getting plenty of tatts this year — many of which have been above the neck. His earlier ink work includes an insane medieval face tattoo he got buzzed after New Year's and another bloody illustration on his face in February.
