Presley Gerber Responds to Backlash Over His New Face Tattoo: 'People Love to Hate Me'
The 20-year-old son of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber tattooed the word "MISUNDERSTOOD" on his right cheekbone last month
Presley Gerber is defending his new ink.
“Most and a lot of people can get a face lifts, change genders, lip injections, etc and it’s offensive to say anything in today’s age but I get a little face tattoo and now people love to hate me..,” the 20-year-old model and son of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber wrote. “Hmmmm?”
And when asked about the meaning of his tattoo, Presley (whose sister is supermodel Kaia Gerber) replied, “I don’t feel very understood, I guess.”
“If anyone has s—t to say to me about this, or anything else, or my family, or how I grew up … I will give you my address — I promise — and you can come say it to my face,” he said in the same video, pointing to the fresh ink.
“If I thought this was going to ruin my face or I didn’t want this, I wouldn’t have done it. I think that’s a pretty obvious thing,” he also told viewers in the video, according to Page Six. “It says misunderstood, because that’s how I felt my entire life.”
“His parents love it, by the way,” model Cameron Rorrison interjected at one point, according to the outlet.
Presley debuted the body art on Feb. 7, when he shared a video of New York-based tattoo artist Jonathan “JonBoy” Valena inking the word on his face. “Thanks homie 😈 @jonboytattoo,” he wrote on Instagram.
