Post Malone has joined forces with eyewear brand Arnette to launch a collection of sunglasses inspired by his face tattoos.

The Rockstar musician is known for the collection of inkings he has on his face, including the words "Stay Away" above his right eyebrow, "Always Tired" under both eyes, a bloody buzzsaw on his left cheek, barbed wire along his hairline, and a medieval gauntlet and flail down his right cheek.

Post has now taken inspiration from his body art for his latest collaboration with Arnette. The four-piece drop is comprised of white and black plastic frames with the words "always tired", written in the same cursive font as his tattoo, on the lower portion of the black lenses. The collection also includes a futuristic style with yellow lenses and a black frame featuring the words "Stay Away" in cursive writing on the top right portion. The location of the writing mirrors where the tattoos sit on Post's face.

The styles, which are available from Sunglass Hut, are designed to be unisex and are sustainable, as they feature bio-based plastic frames and come in eco-friendly packaging.

Post, who also models the eyewear in campaign images, recently opened up about his ever-growing assortment of tattoos.

"I'm a ugly-a*s motherf**ker (sic)," the 24-year-old told GQ magazine. "(The face tattoos do) 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."
