That's Pete Davidson known for SNL, the movie "King of Staten Island", and having butthole eyes. He also has a ton of tattoos. Like, A TON, from head to toe. "The Nick Turani of Hollywood" many have called him. But now, according to a recent Q&A, he's in the process of getting them ALL REMOVED.
Page Six - Nothing lasts forever — not even Pete Davidson’s tattoos.
The 27-year-old “SNL” star is in the process of removing all of his ink, he reportedly revealed at a Q&A last week for his 2020 film, “The King of Staten Island.”
Film critic Mike McGranaghan broke the news when he tweeted a screenshot from the event.
While some were skeptical that the star would part with his extensive collection of body art, McGranaghan explained that Davidson had a reason for his decision.
“He even showed his hand, which is already done. He said it takes 3-4 hours in the makeup chair to cover them, so he figured ‘it would be easier to get them burned off,’” he replied to one fan.
Davidson reportedly has over 100 tattoos, including a giant unicorn, Hilary Clinton’s face, a “Game of Thrones” direwolf and multiple “Harry Potter”-themed designs.
I…I don't understand. How can you get 100+ tattoos and then get them all removed? It doesn't seem logical to me. First of all, if you like tattoos, which he clearly does, you're a tattoo guy. That's just who you are. Some people get cats, some people collect baseball cards, Pete collects tattoos. It's just who he is.
But second of all, and I am typing this with limited to no knowledge of the process, but burning off 100 tattoos seems like the most dangerous process in the world. The entire point of tattoos is they stay on forever, so getting them all removed, it just…I don't know how to put it into words. I feel you're better off coming to my house and picking out a skin suit from last season's collection.
And the entire thing kinda makes me sad to be honest. He got those tattoos for a reason, and now he's ridding himself of them because they cover them up in movies? Just wear long sleeves, I don't know. This is Hollywood, they can do anything, it shouldn't be THAT HARD to cover up tattoos if need be.
But I guess he's doing it. It sounds so painful too. I have 1 tattoo and it hurt like 7.1/10. I've always hated needles though, so that makes sense. But again, they hurt because they stay on forever. So what is the fucking process to get one removed? Double the pain? Jesus, Pete, think this one through. Just take roles that allow you to have tattoos, man. Don't do this to yourself. Sounds legitimately awful.
