Presley Gerber seems to troll fans with cheek tattoo FILTER after hitting back at critics who ‘love to hate’ him
After recently getting some controversial ink permanently marked under his eye, Presley Gerber posted an Instagram snap that sent commenters into a tizzy.
The photo appeared to show the Los Angeles Dodgers ‘LA’ logo surrounded by a star on his cheek bone.
Although some commenters clearly thought the tattoo was real and expressed their disappointment, it seems to have actually been a filter.
New ink: Presley Gerber debuted what looked like a large new face tattoo of the letters ‘LA’ on his cheek on Instagram Tuesday – but it appears to have actually been a filter
‘Guys its a filter.. Y‘all need to chill! And even if it would be a tattoo its still his decision! Thank you @losangelesconfidential,’ noted one commenter.
The ‘LA’ and star tattoo is strikingly similar to one that the rapper The Game has on his left cheek, as The Blast pointed out.
Since getting the body art himself, The Game has released a filter allowing his fans to virtually mimic his ink on Instagram.
‘The boy got his own IG filter…… CLICK THE LINK in my bio & go braaaazzzzyyyyy !!!! #Born2Rap #GameFace #ProlificRecords,’ he wrote last December when the filter came out.

In the image his new ink is visible on his upper cheek bone and temple, with the top of it tucked under a knit hat. On the other cheek, Presley’s first ‘misunderstood’ tattoo is visible.
The son of Cindy Crawford doesn’t make mention of his newest facial artwork in the post but he recently defended himself against critics who went after him for marking up his face the first time.
Just last week, Gerber defended his prominent ‘misunderstood’ ink in a message posted to his Instagram Stories.

‘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 day in age but I get a little face tattoo and now people love to hate me.. Hmmmm? [sic]’ he wrote.
The bizarre statement seemed to compare the negative reactions he got to the tattoo to the discrimination that transgender people receive.
It also appeared to conflate gender reconfirmation surgery with purely cosmetic procedures including ‘face lifts’ and ‘lip injections.’
Recently, Presley’s antics have caused concern among his parents, supermodel Cindy Crawford and businessman Rande Gerber.

Last month, an insider told Us Weekly: ‘Presley is obviously going through a super rebellious phase right now.
‘He is trying to get out of the shadow of his family and find his own way and create his own identity. He also likes the attention he’s been getting, even if negative, from his tattoo and recent posts.’
The source added: ‘Presley feels like there’s a lot of pressure on him because his parents and Kaia are so successful, and Kaia is thought of as a “sweetheart.”
‘And Cindy and Rande have such respected reputations in everything they do. He wants to do his own thing and find his own place in the world.’
