- Pete Davidson appears to have a new tattoo dedicated to his fiancé Ariana Grande.
- The large tattoo, seen in new photos that show his ribcage, says „Grande“ in cursive.
- Davidson also covered up a text tattoo on his chest that said „Jokes come and go but swag is forever“ with new ink of a giant shark.
- Grande and Davidson already have matching tattoos — the number 8418 in honor of Davidson’s father. — and Davidson also has a tattoo of Grande’s initials and bunny ears.
Pete Davidson has new ink dedicated to fiancé Ariana Grande. As spotted during a New York Fashion Week event, the tattoo is located on his ribcage and reads „Grande“ in swooping cursive letters.
The new „Grande“ tattoo, first spotted by Cosmopolitan, can be seen in photos of Davidson at a fashion week event, where he met up with Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin (who are also engaged).
Bieber was the subject of a famous Comedy Central Roast where Pete Davidson participated in some of the harshest barbs of the evening (including Davidson saying he was glad his own father was dead after meeting Bieber’s dad).
This is the second tattoo Davidson has commissioned in honor of Grande, who he began dating in May of this year. The first was her initial and signature bunny ears. Grande herself later got a tattoo of the number 8418 in honor in Davidson’s late father. Davidson has the same numbers tattooed on his forearm.
Davidson, who took off his shirt in the warm weather, showed off the new „Grande“ ink. We rotated the image and zoomed in for a closer look:
But that wasn’t all the tattoo revelations for the day. Davidson also prominently displayed his new shark tattoo on his chest, which is a cover-up of another piece of permanent ink he had done earlier in the year.
The original tattoo said: „Jokes come and go but swag is forever.“ As you can see in the latest photos, that message is now covered up with a giant shark and waves. According to a report from Refinery29, Davidson’s tattoo artist London Reese posted about the cover-up tattoo on Instagram in a post that now appears to be removed.
„I guess swag isn’t forever, Pete,“ the post reportedly said. „Congrats on getting that shark to cover that bad boy up.“
This isn’t the first time Davidson has had tattoos covered up. In May of this year, he had a tattoo that was dedicated to his ex-girlfriend Cazzie David concealed with a new design. His artist for that cover-up, Jon Mesa, told Page Six he warned Davidson against getting new ink connected to a girlfriend before he was married.
„After we were done, I told Pete, ‚Hey, dude, let’s just stop with the girlfriend tats until after [Grande’s] you’re wife,'“ Mesa said. „Because relationships come and go, and Pete is a really young man. [But] I think that went in one ear and out the other.“
