Jelly Roll Reveals His Favorite Tattoos

Gaining love for fans, they seemed to enjoy his interview, commenting, “New fan here! You seem so genuine and down to earth. Your new song moved me so much listening on Howard. This is what I needed to hear and know I’m not alone when I feel down in the dumps.” Another comment read, “I always tell everyone that the same jelly you see online is the same jelly you’ll meet in person, a genuine good person.”

While speaking with Stern, Jelly Roll opened up about his obsession with tattoos and how not all of them were great. Receiving some of his tattoos while incarcerated, the singer explained, “I’ve gotten staph infections from bad tattoos. I learned nothing. You talk about bull-headed. And I still went back to the same guy that gave me the staph infection! It’s crazy what you’ll do. It’s next-level crazy.”

Although sharing his regret about some of his tattoos, Jelly Roll insisted he loved the ones on his face. When asked if he regretted them the most, he said, “That’s probably one of the few I’d keep. I love my cross, I love my slash.”
