    Machine Gun Kelly Seems To Have Shaved Off His Hair — And Holy Moly, He Looks So Different

    Colson, the last airbender.

    When you picture Machine Gun Kelly, there's a likely chance that you think of him looking something like this:

    Well, to announce his new music video and song, "Papercuts," MGK posted a screenshot of a conversation with videographer Cole Bennett...

    i shaved my head for this @_ColeBennett_ “papercuts” tomorrow 9pm 🎬

    ...And oh, oh my.

    That's a large head tattoo!

    The tattoo is diamond shaped with a cross inside of it and is placed on the top of his head

    His eyes are piercing my soul.

    And I'd be lying if I said my immediate reaction wasn't this:

    Now, there is another question that arose from some of the comments: Could this be a bald cap? After all, this is part of the promo for his new single, "Papercuts," and stranger things have been done in the name of publicity!

    I tried to see if there were any old pics of MGK with the tattoo — exhibit A, Colson back in 2012 at an Inked event. I can't see a tattoo, but that also isn't conclusive, as the man has had many tattoos since the bygone era of 2012.

    I then tried to do a Google shopping search for bald caps with tattoos, which was...not helpful.

    On the left, there's a bald cap to look like Nero from Star Trek, and on the right is a Shrek ogre bald cap

    Besides, we do know that MGK loves a tattoo to mark new music — behold, his matching Born with Horns tattoo with Travis Barker to mark his upcoming album.
