Post Malone has a new addition to his tattoo collection, and this one has a very special meaning.
The new ink, which is stamped in large bold, gothic script letters across the 27-year-old’s forehead, reads “DDP,” in an apparent tribute to his daughter, who he welcomed earlier this year.
According to TMZthe letters symbolize his little girl’s initials, although the “Circles” artist has yet to reveal her name to the public.
tattoo artists Chad Rowe—who also created Post’s famous under eye tattoos that read “Always Tired”—was able to work on his friend once again, and shared a photo of the new ink to his Instagram page earlier this week.
“It’s been a few years since @postmalone and I have been able to link up.so when he was in town, we had to make it happen,” Rowe wrote of the singer, whose real name is austin post. “It really doesn’t ever feel real. And for the trust of such and important tattoo is a huge honor.”
Post is no stranger to facial tattoos, as the rapper—whose body is also covered in ink—already has the words “Stay Away” branded on his forehead, along with a line of barbed wire, blackjack cards, a sword, a buzzsaw and more.
“Thanks for being such an amazing person, artist, and friend, Austin. I’m so blessed to not just have a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity, but to have a lifetime of opportunities. And to share it with my favorite people ,” he continued. “To all of the Posty Crew and family, and to all the people who truly make dreams come true, from my entire heart. Thank you, I love you all.”
The tattoo for his daughter comes months after Post welcomed the new bundle of joy with his fiancée, whose identity has been kept under wraps.
