is famous for his ink and is in tattoos. In fact, it was reported last year that he had over 90 tats.

And now that number has increased as the Bloody Valentine hitmaker has shown off the results of what we can only imagine was an incredibly lengthy and painful session in the chair.

Having decided to cover up his existing artwork, MGK –– has turned his entire upper chest black.

Yes, even his nipples.

Not only that but he’s covered the majority of his arms too.

While much of his previous ink is now blacked out, the 33-year-old’s previously colorful tattoos do still peak out slightly through a cross design.

His latest ink was created by Roxx and Cats, who specialise in and are globally recognised for their ‘black-work-only’ tattoos, with over 50 years of experience between them.

Debuting his bold new look, MGK took to Instagram and sparked quite a reaction with his shirtless pics. Disgust from many, in fact, before it emerged what his reasons were for the transformation.

Revealing the reason behind his tattoos, he wrote in his caption: ‘for spiritual purposes only.’

However, it was later reported that MGK got the body art to prove he is ‘100% committed’ to his relationship with Megan Fox.

‘Colson has told Megan that one major reason he did his latest blackout tattoo was not only for a spiritual reason, but he also wanted her to know he did it for her,’ an insider told .

‘He wants her to know that no matter what one does with their own body, they both share each other and his body is her body and he also wants to remove so much confusion from his previous tattoos.

‘He wants to move the confusion that ends up in their relationship from time to time and show her he can change for the benefit of himself and their relationship.’

The source added that the Bad Things rapper is determined to show his dedication and move forward with Megan to make ‘a new love bond.’

‘He wanted to let her know that the new ink was also a testament to her and where they can go from here, that as much joy they have had with each other, he wants it to be a blank space and make new memories and make a new love bond with each other.’

The source concluded: ‘It sounds very deep, but it is genuine and Megan is eating it up and loves it.’

Fans were stunned by MGK’s new ink, to say the least, with bethmcgrogan commenting: ‘I had an emotional attachment to those tats ngl’.

‘MGK is known for his various tattoos and even his Cleveland tattoos. To get that all covered up and go straight black is wild and weird to me’, wrote kabernathy43_.

‘He looks like the villain version of a super hero. Like Spider Man & venom yk?’, wrote mgkvideos.

Clearly unimpressed, chef)cody_904 blasted: ‘Dudes has gotten so weird. Not even a fan anymore smh’.

Others complimented MGK, saying the artwork looks ‘dope’.

Not everyone was so sure, though, questioning if the black would run off in the shower.

However, reps for Roxx and Cats confirmed to : ‘Yes, the tattoo is very permanent.’

MGK’s sprawling tattoo assortment became famous for including many colourful designs, most of which proudly flaunt (or flaunted, rather) his pride for his Cleveland roots.

He’s also sported ink that reimagines the classic works of artists Banksy and Salvador Dalí.

MGK isn’t the only star debuting some new ink these days, as also has some striking new tats.
