Jelly Roll opened up about his tattoos in an interview with Jason Bailey on “Audacy Check In.” When asked if he regretted any of his ink, he said, “Oh, 96 percent of them. I have more tattoo regrets than I do ‘Man I’m glad I got this’ … How you think when you’re 16 years old and how you think when you’re 36 are so dramatically far apart from each other. It’s embarrassing… I’ve got a Gerber baby smoking a joint on my arm. I don’t know who authorized this in my life, or who was around me at this moment, but I hate them.”
Even the way Jelly Roll thought about himself in 2016 is a far cry from what he’s accomplished today. When Vice interviewed rapper Whitney Peyton, the then-32-year-old Jelly Roll also weighed in about what he thought his prospects were. He said, “We’re not radio artists.” About Peyton, he added, “She might be.” Oh, how time has changed his career trajectory!
Incidentally, in the same interview, he also shared that he regretted the “Penelope” tattoo on his upper chest that he got when he was just 17 years old. Thanks to a promise he made to his wife, he finally got rid of it.
