In response to a fan asking for a progress report from the 24-year-old, Bar compiled some recent pics to showcase his journey.
In the clip, the young dad zoomed in on his face revealing: “It’s a long process but they are fading. just used these because they are the most recent things in my gallery.”
Bar has consistently kept fans in the loop on social media as he has been eager to “clean up his image” after a string of arrests and an alcohol addition.
After posting photos earlier this month donning a more sophisticated look, fans praised the father-of-one on his continued makeover.
One wrote: “Keep up the good work … and breaking generational cycles.”
While a second user called out the look commenting: “Looking dapper!”

A motivating factor to getting his tattoos removed quickly are his aspirations to become a vet tech, as he recently learned that facial tattoos are frowned upon in school.
Bar started taking his college courses in October where he was reprimanded for his “visible” ink on his first day.
In a post made to his Instagram story, the Teen Mom 2 star recorded himself addressing his fans in anger as he explained the situation.
“So tell me why I’m leaving now to go to my first day of school and I’m asked like ‘are you gonna do something about your tattoos?’” he said as he addressed his audience.
Quoting one of the teachers at his college, Bar continued: “‘you know that’s dress code’ since when? she said ‘it’s in the student handbook.’ I’m like bro what, no visible tattoos?”
The college rules do not permit visible tattoos on the premises but luckily, Bar is already in the process of getting some of his larger face tattoos lasered off.
The Kalashnikov Cousins singer got facial tattoos shortly after his debut on MTV, but prior to his arrest and other legal issues, he appeared fresh-faced on season one of the show.
Fans of the show recently have been speculating whether Bar and his fiance Ashley Jones are expecting baby number two.
The couple are already parents to four-year-old daughter Holly.
During a new Instagram Q&A, Ashley was once again bombarded with rude speculation, with one follower even demanding: “Prove that you aren’t pregnant.”
The MTV personality clapped back, responding: “Prove that you aren’t small minded by giving me a list of reasons a woman can gain weight.”
Some followers were a bit more sincere with their questions and showed their concern for Ashley’s feelings.
One of them asked: “Does everyone asking if you’re pregnant make you feel self conscious?”
As Ashley said she’s “aware that you guys are used to seeing me very thin,” it doesn’t bother her that much that everyone’s been curious about the recent changes to her body.
Of the transformation, she revealed: “In the last few months I’ve been purposely gaining weight.”
The 24-year-old continued: “I’m a size 12 and I couldn’t be happier. I feel more womanly and curvy than ever.
“I’m happy I didn’t get a BBL cause baby… I would have been dragging a serious wagon.”
‘MORE THAN JUST A BABY MACHINE’
She added that while she isn’t too affected by all the comments, not everyone is the same and people should be more aware of that.
“To someone else the comments can be very harmful and it would be nice if people realized that the woman body is more than just a baby machine,” Ashley said.
Last month, Ashley called it “annoying” that she needs to constantly shut down pregnancy rumors.
She wrote on her Instagram Stories: “I always see rumors that I’m pregnant and honestly it’s annoying.
“I’m very much happy with my weight and the size of my family.”
