Machine Gun Kelly shows off shocking new tattoo covering upper body in black ink

Machine Gun Kelly left fans shocked as he revealed his new body art on Tuesday 20 February.

The rapper took to Instagram to debut a blackout tattoo covering his entire upper torso.

While a few of his original tattoos can still be seen through gaps along his arms - and within the cross symbol on his chest - the ink envelops his upper body.

“For spiritual purposes only,” MGK wrote, sharing a photo of his new tattoo on Instagram.

It is the only post on his profile, which has nearly nine million followers.
