Cindy Crawford's Son Defends New Face Tattoo: 'You Don't Know How I Feel'

Elizabeth Spina 12 Feb 2020

After recently getting a tattoo across his cheekbone that reads "MISUNDERSTOOD", Cindy Crawford's 20-year-old son, Presley Gerber, is defending his decision: "You don't know how I feel."

I mean, he definitely has a point there.

Presley Walker Gerber.

It's a name you may not have heard before.

It's a name that belongs to a young man, who is the son of a very famous woman. While he may not be in the news too often, his mother is what gives him most of his clout.

Presley Walker Gerber is the son of one Cindy Crawford, who you may remember as "that model who was big in the 1980s and 1990s."

And now, her son is a model as well.

He was recently signed by IMG Models.

Where he does what any model does: looks pretty and walks the runway.

And, just like his mother, he's pretty darn good at doing both. Just look at that walk.

He also has a Twitter where he talks about how much he misses his girl, the fun times he has while vacationing, and his modelling contracts.

And, perhaps most poignantly for this article, he tells people to "judge him".

Because that's exactly what people are doing.

The title pretty much gave it away: people are judging him for a pretty major life decision that he just made at a fairly young age!

ICYMI, Cindy Crawford's 20-year-old son, Presley Gerber, recently rocked social media by showing off his new face tattoo that reads, "MISUNDERSTOOD" across his cheekbone.

It's far from subtle!

He unveiled his tattoo on Friday in a video of himself getting tattooed by a New York artist called "JonBoy."

“Thanks homie 😈 @jonboytattoo,” Presley captioned the video.

The tattoo artist also shared photos of the tattoo on his own Instagram page.

“Sorry mom," he appropriately captioned the post.

I am definitely curious what Cindy thinks about this!

Load Comments

Naturally, everybody and their mothers have had something negative to say about it.

Presley is, unfortunately (but expectedly), facing some major criticism for inking his face.

Load Comments

An overwhelming number of comments similar to this one came pouring in.

Instagram | @presleygerber

Almost everyone that commented unanimously agrees that Presley is going to live to regret tattooing his face.

Load Comments

Some people thought that he exaggerated the sentimental value behind the tattoo and simply got it because it's a trend.

This fan thinks that he ruined the entire look of his face.

Load Comments

Another person commented, confident that Presley is eventually going to have this tattoo lasered off.

At least he has the money to get it lasered off!

Load Comments

This fan pointed out that Cindy is probably not going to approve of his new ink.

Am I the only one dying to know what her reaction to all of this is?!

Load Comments

Anyway, you get the point! The majority of fans think that Presley's face tattoo was a serious lapse in judgement.

And evidently, all of the negativity from the peanut gallery started to bother him.

Load Comments

But rather than quietly sticking to his guns, he's facing off with the haters and defending his choice.

He sounded off in an Instagram live video on Saturday.

Load Comments

“You don’t know how I feel. You’re not in my head,” he said.

He also explained the meaning behind the tattoo, which is pretty self-explanatory.

“I don’t feel very understood, I guess," he said.

In the same video, Presley challenges anyone that has a problem with his tattoo, to say it to his face.

Pointing at his cheek he said: "If anyone has [expletive] to say to me about this, or anything else, or my family, or how I grew up … I will give you my address."

Load Comments

"I promise — and you can come say it to my face.”

Instagram | @presleygerber

He explained that he mulled over the repercussions of his tattoo choice before getting it — it wasn't an impulsive decision.

Load Comments

“If I thought this was going to ruin my face or I didn’t want this, I wouldn’t have done it," he said.

Instagram | @presleygerber

"I think that’s a pretty obvious thing,”

Do you think he'll end up having it removed eventually?
