We’ve got to admit, getting face ink requires serious balls. Just ask Mike Tyson, Post Malone, and its latest inductee, Presley Gerber. But if there’s anyone who can take those societal-challenging tattoos and turn it into fashion gold, it would have to be Post Malone. After all, the 24-year-old singer has also convinced the fashion set that you can sell out a collection of Crocs within minutes – twice. Collaborating with Arnette on a four-piece sunglass collection – his second with Arnette following last year’s eco-friendly collection – the Psycho singer’s signature face tattoos make a cameo on the lenses of these sunnies and are written in the same cursive fonts. Two phrases are made available and are positioned strategically on the lenses as a nod to the actual positions of the tattoos with “stay away” on the upper corner on one pair and “always” and “tired” at the bottom of each lens on the other. And if these end up as a test for you to get real face ink, hey, at least you can admit it wasn't a spur of the moment drunk-in-Vegas decision.
