Pete Davidson has a tattoo just above his right collarbone that likely commemorates the first time he and Kim Kardashian kissed while in the role of Disney’s Jasmine and Aladdin during a skit on Saturday Night Live.
And while it’s been billed as “a tiny new tattoo,” the ink actually appears to have aged a bit.
The act is clearly visible in photos Kardashian posted to Instagram on Monday. But it could already be seen in photos taken months ago.
The J-and-A tattoo already existed since at least the end of April, when outlets instead opted to go crazy over the “KNSCP” tattoo that sits just above it. Apparently, a mystery mark, including Kardashian’s first initial along with the initials of her four children with ex Kanye West — North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm — was more exciting than any old Disney riff at the time.
Davidson and Kardashian had their “SNL” kiss less than a year ago, in early October, and started dating a few weeks later. So the whole situation is kind of new.
Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres in March that Davidson had engraved “My Girl is a Lawyer” on his left collarbone in her honor, along with branding of her first name on his chest. Apparently, Kardashian said he didn’t want her name removed. That’s enough.
Davidson began having tattoos removed from his neck and arms in 2021 when it became clear he would have a film career.
“I didn’t think they were going to stick me in things… like the movie business or anything like that,” Davidson told Seth Meyers in May. “I thought ‘SNL’ afterwards, I thought it was a wrap.”
But getting him into things they did, and that meant getting to set three hours early every day to cover up his visible tattoos. Davidson, who had just left the long-running sketch comedy show, seemed tired of spending all that extra time at work.
The 28-year-old told People TV last summer that the removal process will take years, but “by the time I’m 30 they should all be gone”.
Meanwhile, Davidson is set to make his on-camera debut in his girlfriend’s family’s reimagined reality show The Kardashians, in which the gang clearly has no issue with tattooed guys.
Hulu dropped a promo for the show’s second season on Monday in which Davidson honestly (and comedicly) responded to Kardashian’s invitation to take a shower with her “really quick.” He dropped everything he was holding and ran after her into the bathroom.
