UPDATE 10/1, 11:40 a.m. ET: TMZ reports that the artist responsible for Aaron Carter's face tattoo tried to talk him out of it. According to the report, Herchel Carrasco thought he was going to add to Carter's torso tattoo, but Carter seemed determined to get the Medusa tattoo on his face. Ultimately, he decided that Carter was mentally fit to make his own decision regarding the tattoo.
"Before I tattoo anyone, I take into consideration their mental state ... in Aaron’s case, I assessed the situation and I genuinely felt he was in a good place mentally to get tattooed," Carrasco said.

Aaron Carter's antics have been making a lot of headlines and the singer's new ink continues this trend.
Carter decided to cover almost half of his face with a medusa-like figure. He debuted the tattoo over the weekend in an Instagram post that exudes confidence. "IM THE BIGGEST THING IN MUSIC RIGHT NOW," the caption reads. "I CANT BE DENIED. FACT CHECK ME." Included in the piece, is the word "Love" which is tattooed on his neck and connected to the medusa with shading. "Love" also references his last studio album and merch.
Earlier this month, Aaron's brother, Nick, announced that he's getting a restraining order against his little brother because he allegedly threatened to harm his wife and unborn child.
This sparked Aaron to berate his brother in a public fashion, sending shots at Nick through social media and in a recent interview on the No Jumper podcast. Eventually, Carter gave up the assault weapons that he used to threaten his brother. He also announced that he will seek treatment for his addiction to Xanax.
