NBA YoungBoy has added some new ink to his already sprawling collection across his body — and this time, he’s opted to go with a Halloween theme.
The “Fresh Prince of Utah” rapper took to Instagram on Sunday (July 23) to show off his new face tattoos, which include a casket covered with webs and an upside down on his forehead, and a skull and bones symbol behind his left ear.
“Better keep it real,” he captioned his post, which also contained photos of him showing off his flossy jewelry and painted fingernails, as well as flashing a smile for the camera while flexing one of his many expensive sports car.
YoungBoy has quite a few tattoos on his face, including the name “Hassen” on his left temple, the word “Restricted” on his left cheek and a diamond stone under his left eye.
He also has a bevy of neck tats of various symbols and images.

Prior to his latest Halloween-inspired face tattoos, NBA YoungBoy got some ink done in March to honor his wife, Jazlyn Mychelle.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted the tat in the music video for YoungBoy’s “Members Only” collaboration with Bay Area native ZAYEL. In one scene towards the end of the clip, YB bench presses a barbell in his home gym when his shirt lifts up to reveal his spouse’s name, Jazlyn, inked across his lower abdomen.
NBA YoungBoy and Jazlyn reportedly wed in January. While neither has confirmed their marriage, a copy of a Utah County marriage license baring their full names — Kentrell Gaulden and Jazlyn Mychelle Hayes — surfaced on social media.
Jazlyn notably appeared on the cover of YB’s Gangsta Grillz mixtape Ma’ I Got A Family, which dropped last October . The couple have been dating for over two years, and welcomed their first child together, a daughter named, Alice in 2021.
They then announced the birth of their second child, a son, in September 2022, making YoungBoy the father of 10 children in total.
YoungBoy has changed his appearance a number of times throughout his career, from growing out his hair to wearing jewelry in his mouth. But in 2021, the Baton Rouge native made headlines when he opted to wear black lipstick and dark makeup around his eyes for his “Black Ball” video.
While looking for answers at the time, Akademiks asked NBA YoungBoy about the inspiration behind wearing the makeup on Clubhouse.
“I like painting my face, putting makeup on,” the rapper explained. “I like to look in the mirror and see everything black. Like my eyes and shit. That’s one hundred percent real! That’s me being myself. I feel comfortable that way. That’s some shit from MAC [Cosmetics] I made my engineer go buy. It give me like the goth feeling, like rockstars.”
