Presley Gerber has denied getting another tattoo on his face.

The 20-year-old model, the son of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, came under fire from fans in February when he got the word "MISUNDERSTOOD" tattooed on his left cheekbone, and on Tuesday, it appeared that he had added a second one, of the Los Angeles Dodgers' logo, on his right cheek.

However, after receiving backlash from his followers for getting more ink on his face, Presley took to his Instagram Stories and insisted the tattoo wasn't real.

"It was a filter lol (laugh out loud) damn," he wrote alongside a selfie which showed him without the second tattoo. "Also, I don't 'want to be hood' wtf (what the f**k) u don't know me chill I'm grateful if I wanted to I could be posting money n s**t but I don't so stfu (shut the f**k up) please or imma delete my gram it stressful (sic)."

Presley, who has starred in campaigns for the likes of HUGO, Calvin Klein, and Topshop, got his 'Misunderstood' design from New York-based tattoo artist Jonathan 'JonBoy' Valena.

After fans criticised his decision, he said in an Instagram Live video, "If I thought this was going to ruin my face or I didn't want this, I wouldn't have done it. I think that's a pretty obvious thing... It says misunderstood, because that's how I felt my entire life."

He addressed critics of his tattoo more recently on his Instagram Stories by writing, "Most and a lot of people can get a face lifts, change genders, lip injections, etc and it's offensive to say anything in today's day in age (sic). But I get a little face tattoo and now people love to hate."
