Nothing Machine Gun Kelly does is subtle and that includes his new tattoo.

Driving the news: MGK took to Instagram Tuesday to show off a jaw-dropping piece that covers most of his upper body in black ink.

The intrigue: It was done by tattoo artist Roxx, whose tattoo style has become all the rage for celebrities like Ricky Martin, Adam Lambert and others.

What they're saying: The motivation for MGK's piece, which covers up many of his previous tattoos, remains unknown for now.

  • He removed all of his previous Instagram photos and captioned the image of the new tattoo with "for spiritual purposes only."
  • Roxx wrote of MGK in her Instagram post, "Never met a tougher one," which is probably true considering the tattoo was done using 44 needles.
