Last week Netflix released “Spenser Confidential” which is yet another original featuring some top-name celebrities including Winston Duke from Jordan Peele’s “Us”, Mark Wahlberg, and Post Malone. In this action-comedy Wahlberg who plays Spenser teams up with Duke’s character and the pair, as vigilantes, investigates the murder of Spenser’s former business partners.

Post Malone, who plays an inmate named Squeeb, makes his acting debut with a beat done from Wahlberg but the two have managed to change the on-screen fight into an off-screen friendship.

Mark Wahlberg, who was once only known as a founding member of “New Kids On The Block” or “Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch”, was considered the bad boy of the early nineties. He was known for being arrogant and violent. Once upon the time he also faced convictions for battery and assault.

With such a past, Walhberg has placed himself as a mentor over stars that are having tough luck with managing their personal lives like he once did. Now in his 'pageant dad’ years, he has been credited with giving advice to stars like Justin Bieber, his nephew Jeff Wahlberg, and now co-star Post Malone.

During an appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden after the film's release, Mark Wahlberg discussed his conversation with Post Malone about his tattoos after having his own removed. "I had like eight or nine [tattoos removed]," Wahlberg said. "All the way around my neck, my stomach, my arms, my back, my leg,” he told Corden.

Wahlberg went on to explain that with maturity and sensibility he decided to remove his tattoos but since their conversation Post has added even more.

Though his tattoos are admired by fans, Post Malone revealed a secret of his own during his most recent interview with GQ magazine, suggesting that his tattoos may be a “defense strategy”. “It does maybe come from a place of insecurity, to where I don't like how I look, so I'm going to put something cool on there so I can look at myself and say, ‘You look cool, kid,’ and have a modicum of self-confidence, when it comes to my appearance,” he shares.

It seems that the “Circles” singer may want to go back and heed the advice of his friend Mark who closed his interview about Post’s tattoos with, “...you realize, 'I'm pushing 40, I've gotta do something about this.'"

While the concept of tattoos and their visual appeal are still on-trend, many celebrities are being called out for their strange and misplaced ink. Though Post Malone's gauntlet may not be something he will regret for years to come, celebrities like Ariana Grande can attest that some art should remain on paper.
