WAIT... that is not Post?!

Post Malone has become known for his trademark collection of face tattoos. The rapper currently has multiple inkings, including "Always Tired", a bloody buzzsaw, a Playboy bunny and "Stay Away" tattooed on his face. However, a recently unearthed video shows what Post looked like before his face ink – and he looks SO different.

Post looked remarkably different in the short clip, rocking longer braided hair, a gleaming grill and chains. But what was most noticeable of all was his face, which was completely free from tattoos.

In a recent interview with GQ, Post admitted that he started getting face tattoos because he thought he was "ugly".

He said: "I'm a ugly-ass motherfucker. 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."
