Pete Davidson's tattoos guide: Photos and meanings behind his ink ...

Pete Davidson has a love-hate bond with his tattoos.

The Saturday Night Live star is certainly not afraid of ink, having covered nearly his entire body with more than 70 designs, including ones honoring his family, relationships, favorite movies, and more.

When he began dating Kim Kardashian at the end of the year, he promised to remove all of his tattoos by the age of 30.

Davidson now has a few tattoos dedicated to the Skims founder, but he also has her name permanently on his chest, so it can never be removed.

The pair of them ended up splitting in August 2022, leaving Davidson with a variety of tats that will always remind him of the reality star.

Below, learn about some of Davidson's most famous tattoos and their meanings.

Kim Kardashian is a model and actress.

My girl is a lawyer.

Kardashian confessed to Ellen DeGeneres in March 2022 that she has a few tattoos in her honor, and she posted a photo of her favorite, which nods to her desire for a law career.

Kim Kardashian

This type of tattoo, although not technically a tattoo, was a clear evidence of Davidson's devotion to Kardashian.

The beauty mogul told DeGeneres he wanted to do something completely different. I do not want to be able to get rid of it or conceal it, and I just wanted it there as a scar on me.

Aladdin and Jasmine

Davidson displayed two of his most-loved tattoo tributes to Kardashian on his collarbone, including the words Jasmine and Aladdin, and an infinity sign in the middle referring to the couple's first kiss in an Aladdin-themed SNL skit in October 2021.


Davidson has also signed the Kardashians' first initial together with the four children she shares with Kanye West: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Many on social media condemned the comedians' decision to involve the Kardashians' children after dating their mother for less than a year.

D.L. Hughley even joined in on the conversation, saying, "The fathers are alive, he's a good father, he's taking care of these kids." I don't understand what it's all about.

It's not my business, but if you tattoo my kid's name on your neck, I'll have something to say.

Ariana Grande is well-known for

Grande and a black keyhole

Davidson was engaged to Ariana Grande for several months before his relationship with Kardashian in 2018 and has many tattoos (and cover-ups) to show for it. For instance, after tattooing her last name down his side, Davidson covered it up with a black keyhole.

Cursed and Mille tendresse

What started out as a quote from Grandes Breakfast at Tiffanys became a twisted tat, with Davidson declaring himself cursed following the separation.

Piggy Smallz is a retired veterinarian.

Mira Mariah, the singers' go-to tattoo artist, tattooed a pig named Piggy Smallz on his side.

Dangerous Woman's ears and a black heart

The couple wore a number of tiny tattoos, including matching cloud tattoos and the words REBORN and H2GKMO, both of which stand for, honest to God, knock me out on their fingers.

He also wrote a tribute to Grandes' career behind his ear as well as an A, which he eventually covered up with a large black heart.

Grande covered up the Pete tattoo on her left ring finger with a black heart, as well.


A fireman is stumbling down.

This large painting of a kneeling firefighter is one of many tributes to Scott Davidson, his late father who was a member of the New York Fire Department on September 11.

The prayer of firefighters

Enable me to remain alert and hear the weakest shout, extracted from a poem called The Firemans Prayer, sits beneath the kneeling firefighter.

Scott Davidsons badge number

Grande had the numbers added to her ankle in solidarity, but they were covered up after their breakup.

Friendships are a form of friendship.

When Davidson was 17 years old, he got his first-ever tattoo, a lyric from the Big Seans song Mercy. Ironically, the rapper married Grande in 2014.

Davidson and Machine Gun Kelly co-starred in the 2019 film Big Time Adolescence, which includes a scene in which Kellys Nick gives Davidsons Zeke a tattoo on his right leg. Evidently, the pair did not pretend it for the cameras.

Miley Cyrus and Davidson revealed that they had matching tattoos of the term we babies, inspired by an SNL skit in which they played rapping infants.

Idols are notoriously unpredictable creatures.

The day after appearing in an SNL sketch about Ruth Bader Ginsberg in 2018, the comic received the late Supreme Court Justices' faces, complete with a crown tattooed on his right shoulder.

Davidson demonstrated his support for Clinton by inking her portrait on his leg after she lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump.

This makes it much less awkward that Ive had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years, according to Clinton when she saw the tribute on Instagram.

Movies and TV shows

Davidson, a huge Harry Potter fan, has more than one tattoo dedicated to the J.K. Rowling series. Perhaps his greatest tattoo is a quote from Albus Dumbledore on his left forearm that says, "It's possible to find happiness, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."

Davidson had his murder tattooed backwards in red on his right hand before he began his laser removal process, according to a 1980 film The Shining.

Davidson, a Staten Island alumnus, seems to be a fan of The Sopranos, and he has the Tony Sopranos strip club on his side to demonstrate it.

Sylvester Stallones Rocky is another inspiration. A quote from the 2006 film It aint about how hard you hit. Its about how hard you can hit and keep moving forward on his back.

Martin Scorsesses The King of Comedy, in which Robert DeNiro plays a struggling stand-up comedian, is better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime.
