Here’s your go-to guide of all the most notable celebrity face tattoos:

Presley Gerber

The 20-year-old son of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber debuted a face tattoo earlier this week. He has the word ‘misunderstood’ written in capital letters below his right eye. 

It’s believed the tattoo was done by JonBoy, the same artist behind Justin Bieber’s and Zayn Malik’s designs.

Post Malone

Post Malone is as universally known for his face tattoos as he is for his award-winning music.

The rap artist has a number of designs on his face, including the words ‘Always’ and ‘Tired’ underneath his eyes.
