High-Key Details

In a recent interview, Malone hinted at his personal insecurity making him get face tattoos. The Dallas Cowboys fan blamed his physical features for also motivating the decisions.

“I’m a ugly-a** motherfucker,” he says—and he suggests that his face tattoos might be a defensive strategy. “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.” (GQ)
