Rodman wanted to show his love for his girlfriend Yella Yella and got her face tattooed on his cheek.

And on Tuesday, he shared an update on social media as he got the fresh ink touched up.

He captioned the post, “Looks good yeah sir,” followed by “Touched up WHY NOT.”

The bold new look divided many of his 2.5million followers, with one commenting that Rodman, known for his larger-than-life personality throughout his career, “still doesn’t give a shit” in her opinion.

Another opined that this was the “most normal Rodman activity”.

Not everyone felt that way, with one commenting, “I’m sorry but it just isn’t.”

The post was also greeted with jokes from some, such as the statement: “Lazer removal is going crazy.”

While another added: “Good luck getting an office job now.”

After the initial reveal of his tattoo, Yella told Yella TMZ how she “actually told him not to do it,” adding, “I’m like, ‘What are you doing!'”

She also called Rodman “crazy” and called him “a wild boy” as he laughed next to her.

But for Rodman, it seemed like an easy decision, which explains why he felt this was his “last dance with a woman.”

He added: “She’s very kind. And I thank her for loving me the way I am — and that’s why I did it for her.”
