Pete Davidson is reportedly getting rid of the more than 70 tattoos covering his body.

During a virtual Q&A with “The King of Staten Island” cast in December 2020, the 27-year-old “Saturday Night Live” cast member revealed that he’s “in the process of getting all his tattoos removed,” per Mike McGranaghan, a film critic who attended the event.

Over the years, Davidson’s tattoos have become a visual representation of his life story – chronicling romances with past partners, like Cazzie David and Ariana Grande, and paying homage to his father, a firefighter who died in the September 11th terrorist attacks.

While a lot of Davidson’s tattoos are light-hearted, like a Winnie the Pooh cartoon and a Hillary Clinton portrait, Davidson began getting ink to hide the marks he gave himself from cutting his chest as a form of self-harm.

“That’s why I started getting tats on my chest, to cover them. It’s just a release, if you can’t get a tattoo… When [I’m] so manic and upset, sometimes that’s the only thing that will work for me,” he explained during a February 2020 interview with Inked Mag.

Keep reading to see a complete rundown of the comedian’s extensive tattoo collection.

Davidson’s first tattoo, which is the word “swerve life,” was inspired by Big Sean’s song “Mercy.”

When Davidson was 17 years old, he and his friend got matching leg tattoos with lyrics from Big Sean’s song “Mercy.”

“It says ‘swerve life’ because the Big Sean song had ‘Swerve!’ in it, and we were like ‘That’s gonna last forever!'” he told Variety, adding, “So now that’s on our legs.”

The tattoo came full circle after he started dating Ariana Grande, who was in a relationship with Big Sean years prior.

There are two micro-tattoos on his right hand.

Davidson has not confirmed the meaning behind the tattoo.

The science fiction film, which was directed by Tim Burton, is about an alien invasion.

Jack Nicholson, one of Davidson’s favorite actors, stars in the movie, which could play into Davidson’s decision to get the ink.

In 2018, Davidson covered a tattoo that said, “Jokes come and go, but swag is forever” with a giant shark.

The internet had strong reactions to Davidson’s shirtless GQ photoshoot in 2018, one of which was criticism of his chest tattoo that said, “Jokes come and go, but swag is forever.”

Days later, he covered the phrase with a colorful shark.

The words “soulmate” and “wobbly,” which now surround the animal, were later additions to his collection.

Davidson has the word “warning” on his wrist.

The comedian added the word “warning” to his wrist.

Although Davidson hasn’t confirmed the meaning behind the tattoo, he got the ink sometime after he and Grande broke up in October 2018, as he didn’t have the word on his hand in photos of them together.

“93,” the last two digits of his birth year, are tattooed in the middle of his chest.

On his left arm, Davidson has a sinister-looking Willy Wonka tattoo.

The comedian used his Willy Wonka-inspired ink to drive home a punch line during a “Pete Davidson & Friends” comedy show in 2019, according to USA Today.

“I got a Harry Potter tattoo. Then the next day, Alan Rickman, the guy who played Snape, died, and I was like, ‘Oh, what a weird coincidence,'” Davidson told the audience.

He continued, “Then I got a Willy Wonka tattoo. Next day, Gene Wilder dies. Now I’m like, all right, that’s a coincidence, that’s weird. So I’m thinking of getting a tattoo of Louis C.K., what do you guys think?” The joke was a reference to C.K.’s sexual misconduct controversy.

Days after appearing in an “SNL” sketch about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the comedian got a tattoo of the late supreme court justice.

Davidson rapped about Ginsburg, who died due to complications from pancreatic cancer in September 2020, during a 2018 “SNL” sketch alongside Chris Redd and Kate McKinnon.

Days after the episode aired, he got a tattoo of “The Notorious R.B.G.” on his shoulder, showing the former supreme court justice wearing a crown.

Davidson covered his “Dangerous Woman” bunny tattoo with a black heart.

During his relationship with Ariana Grande, Davidson got the bunny ears that the singer wore on the “Dangerous Woman” album cover tattooed behind his left ear.

Once they parted ways, he covered it with a large black heart.

In June 2018, the comedian’s tattoo artist Jon Mesa revealed that he warned Davidson against getting Grande-inspired art until they were married.

“I told Pete, ‘Hey, dude, let’s just stop with the girlfriend tats until after [Grande’s] you’re wife.’ Because relationships come and go, and Pete is a really young man. [But] I think that went in one ear and out the other,” Mesa told Page Six at the time.

Behind the same ear, he has two X’s.

He added the design after covering up the Grande-inspired bunny ears.

A smiley face is directly below the X’s.

The small tattoo sits directly below the black heart.

Davidson got a tattoo of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after she lost the 2016 election.

“I got the tattoo after she lost the election because she’s such a cool person,” he told Variety.

Davidson continued: “I didn’t do it like one of those Super Bowl guys that are like ‘The Eagles! We’re gonna win!’ She’s just, like, dope. She’s just a dope person.”

Clinton seemed to approve of Davidson’s tribute when she came across a photo of the ink on Instagram.

She commented: “Thanks, @petedavidson. This makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years.”

Davidson had a run-in with the former secretary of state in 2018 at Aretha Franklin’s funeral, where they were seen chatting.

Davidson has a series of tattoos – including a ghost, Pac-Man, a plane, and a ski mask – layered on top of each other.

The tattoos appear to be layered in the middle of his chest, situated below a broken heart symbol.

A white angel covers the right side of Davidson’s back.

Flanked by black birds flying above it, the white figure looks down and covers the lower part of Davidson’s back.

The other side shows a person wearing a black hoodie.

The tattoo of a person, which is surrounded by butterflies, seems to be in direct contrast to the white angel on the right side of his back.

The two tattoos may be a reference to the “good angel versus bad angel” trope used to represent the two sides of a person’s conscience in popular culture, though Davidson hasn’t confirmed the meaning behind the ink.

The phrase “Katy must learn to share her friends…” is on his side.

“Redrum,” a famous reference to the 1980 film “The Shining,” is tattooed on his hand.

The word “redrum,” which is “murder” spelled backward, is tattooed in red ink and all capital letters on the comedian’s hand.

The ink is a reference to “The Shining,” a 1980 horror film directed by Stanley Kubrick that was based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name.

It’s possible that Davidson chose the design because Jack Nicholson starred in the film, and the “SNL” comedian has been an outspoken fan of the Academy Award-winning actor’s work.

During a 2018 appearance on “The Howard Stern Show,” Davidson revealed that he turned down Lorne Michael’s invitation to meet Nicholson.

“We were in LA, and he was having dinner with Jack Nicholson and Jon Hamm. He was like, ‘Would you like to come?'” Davidson told the host, Howard Stern.

He continued: “I was like, ‘No, there’s nothing — what am I going to do? You guys are going to have conversations about stuff you can relate with, and I’m going to be like, ‘Hey, what was the ‘[One Flew Over the] Cuckoo’s Nest’ like?”

Davidson told Stern that he “can’t live with Jack Nicholson hating me.”

A self-proclaimed fan of the Harry Potter franchise, Davidson has an Albus Dumbledore quote on his left forearm.

pete davidson arm

The quote, which is from J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” is tattooed on his forearm.

It reads: “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

Davidson has previously spoken about being a “Harry Potter” fan and told Rolling Stone that he’s read all seven books in 2016.

However, the comedian contradicted himself in a Variety interview years later, admitting that he hasn’t read past the third book.

He has several planets tattooed on his left arm.

The comedian has numerous tattoos that serve as tributes to his late father, Scott Davidson, who died when the “SNL” star was 7 years old.

Though he’s spoken about the serious role that his father’s death has played in his life, the comedian has also incorporated the tragedy into some of his routines.

“I lost my dad on 9/11,” he said at a Comedy Central roast for Justin Bieber in 2015, according to the Washington Post.

He continued: “I always regretted growing up without a dad. Until I met your dad, Justin. Now I’m glad mine’s dead.”

His father’s death also became a major plot point in Davidson’s semi-autobiographical film “The King of Staten Island” (2020).

There’s a large flower with bees on his side.

In one of the scenes, Kelly gives his longtime friend Davidson a tattoo on his right leg that reads “Zeke,” which is the name of his character in the movie.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the duo confirmed that the ink was real.

“He actually killed it,” Davidson said, adding that Kelly made the letter “Z” thicker because he retraced it “when they were starting to roll camera.”

He covered a tattoo of Grande’s last name with a large black keyhole.

“The King of Comedy,” which was directed by Martin Scorsese and starred Robert de Niro, seemed to resonate with Davidson.

His line, “Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime,” is tattooed on Davidson’s hip.

Even though the “SNL” cast member covered his tattoo of David’s cartoon when he started dating Grande, he kept the matching “We babies” ink he got with her and Miley Cyrus in 2017.

The tattoo was likely in reference to an “SNL” sketch called “The Baby Steps,” which featured Davidson, Cyrus, and Larry David.

He has “thank goodness” written on his chest.

After Davidson began dating Grande, he got a tattoo on the back of his neck that read, “mille tendresse,” a French phrase that translates to a “thousand tendernesses.”

After the couple broke up, Davidson revisited the parlor to amend the ink and covered the phrase with the word “cursed.”

The firefighter helmet is likely dedicated to his late father, Scott Davidson.

And though the comedian attended Catholic all boy’s school, he’s reportedly of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, which could explain the Star of David tattoo.

Davidson also has a tattoo of a lotus flower, which symbolizes peace, purity, and spiritual awakening in many cultures.

He has the Tootsie pop owl tattooed on the middle of his back.

“Did this crazy coverup last night on my boy @petedavidson,” Mesa captioned the Instagram post.

Next to a tattoo of the painting from “Goodfellas,” Davidson has his father’s initials on his right arm above a crying heart.

He also has the initials “SMD,” which likely stands for Scott Matthew Davidson, on his arm. A crying heart with red ink sits directly below it.

On his left arm, Davidson has the fireman’s prayer, four-leaf clover, and a number.

Underneath the large firefighter on his bicep, Davidson has the words, “Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout” on his arm.

The phrase comes from a poem called “The Fireman’s Prayer” in a 1958 book called “A Celebration of Poets” and likely is related to Davidson’s late father.

Below the quote, he has a four-leaf clover, which is a symbol of good luck, and the number “1468.” Davidson hasn’t confirmed the meaning behind the number.

A dedicated godfather, Davidson got the name of Velez’s son, Leo, tattooed on his neck.

Russian Troops Dead After Getting ‘Treated’ to Poisoned Meals, Ukraine Officials Say



Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry / Facebook

In a show of hospitality, Ukrainian citizens in the besieged region of Kharkiv have reportedly been “treating” Russian troops local delicacies—laced with poison.

At least two troops from the 3rd Motor Rifle Division of the Russian Federation died immediately after eating stuffed buns served by the residents of Izium, a town about 80 miles southeast of Kharkiv, the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine wrote Saturday in an announcement posted to Facebook.

Another 28 Russians are being treated in intensive care from eating the contaminated treats. The condition of these poisoned invaders has yet to be confirmed.

According to the Intelligence Directorate, several hundred Russian soldiers have also suffered severe illnesses from drinking poisoned alcohol while occupying the region. Ukrainian officials said that the Russian military is “writing off these cases as so-called ‘non-combat losses.’”

Though Russian troops have reportedly retreated from the capital of Kyiv. The New York Times reports that insurgent forces are still fighting to gain control of Izium, despite the locals’ culinary efforts. Control of the eastern town would allow Russians to strategically secure access to the occupied Donbas region.

Massive ship called Ever Forward is stuck in Chesapeake Bay



Despite two failed attempts to free it this week, a sister container ship to the Ever Given that got stuck in the Suez Canal last year has been lodged in the Chesapeake Bay for 21 days — and now cargo holders have to pay to help free it.

Why it matters: The Ever Forward (yes, bask in the irony) is the largest ship to get stuck in the Chesapeake Bay and it’s carrying 5,000 containers of … stuff.

Get market news worthy of your time with Axios Markets. Subscribe for free.

What’s happening: The ship’s owner — Evergreen Marine Corp. — has invoked a maritime law dubbed “General Average,” under which people whose belongings are on a ship must share in the cost of freeing it.

Zoom in: It’s unclear what’s in the thousands of containers aboard the Ever Forward, but at least one cargo holder — a Bloomberg journalist who recently moved from Hong Kong to New York — has been sharing her experience waiting on her furniture.

  • “The entire contents of our apartment, all of our furniture, lots of books, things of sentimental value are all in a container stuck in the Chesapeake Bay,” Tracy Alloway told NBC Washington.

  • The U.S. Coast Guard, which is handling Ever Forward’s PR, per the Port of Baltimore, told Axios that “general cargo” is on the ship and referred further questions to Evergreen.

Zoom out: The Ever Forward has been idling near Baltimore, en route to Norfolk, since a wrong turn leaving Baltimore on March 13 ran the boat aground in shallow water (24 feet of water — when it needs 42 to float, per NBC Washington.)

  • The Ever Forward has been stuck thrice as long as its sister ship sat marooned between the Mediterranean and Red seas last year.

  • The ship is not disrupting trade — or blocking passage out of Baltimore Harbor, William Doyle, director of the Port of Baltimore tweeted.

  • Tuesday and Wednesday were the first attempts to refloat the boat using tug boats.

  • A third attempt will be coming soon, “using two anchored pulling barges from the stern and five tugs,” Doyle wrote on Twitter.

The big picture: You can stay informed on the progress via, a website that went viral last year during the Suez fiasco.

  • The boat has become a tourist attraction and Downs Park (there’s a $6 entry fee) in Pasadena, Maryland is apparently the best place to see it.

By the numbers: Comparing giant, stuck container ships.

  • The Ever Forward — currently lodged in Baltimore en route to Norfolk for 21 days and counting — 1,095 feet long, 117,340 gross tons. Ran aground due to a wrong turn in the Bay.

  • The Ever Given — stuck in the Suez Canal for 6 days – 1,312 feet long, weighing in at 224,000 gross tons. Ran aground due to a large wind gust.

California has $600M in unclaimed can, bottle deposits



SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California is sitting on a $600 million pile of unclaimed nickel and dime deposits on recyclable cans and bottles and now wants to give some of that back to consumers.

To get the state’s nearly 40 million residents to recycle more and send more deposits back to them, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration unveiled a plan Friday to temporarily double to a dime the refund for a 12-ounce (355 milliliters) bottle or can. California already pays 10 cents on containers over 24 ounces (709 milliliters), and that would temporarily double to 20 cents.

The move would make California among the highest-paying recycling programs in the country. Rachel Machi Wagoner, director of the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, said the effort would help California again become the recycling leader it was 35 years ago when it started its cash refund program.

When someone in California purchases a regular-sized soda, a 5-cent charge is applied that can be recouped if the container is brought back for recycling. Under Newsom’s plan, the deposit charge would remain the same but the return amount would double. The goal is to raise the recycling rate for beverage containers from 70% to at least 80%.

Oregon and Michigan already offer 10-cent refunds and advocacy groups say that amount for each glass or plastic bottle or aluminum can has been enough for consumers to recycle at least nine of every 10 containers.

The advocacy group Consumer Watchdog’s President Jamie Court, a frequent critic of the recycling program, called the plan “a very positive step” and “a bold proposal to give people their money back.”

“That money isn’t doing anybody any good sitting in the bank,” Court said. “We need a complete structural fix, but this is a good interim step.”

California’s proposal feeds the latest national effort to boost recycling as beverage distributors face increased pressure to include higher percentages of recycled material in their containers, National Stewardship Action Council executive director Heidi Sanborn said.

Just 10 of the 50 states have deposit programs now, but many are considering them — potentially creating a confusing patchwork and beverage labels crowded with different states’ deposit amounts, something she said distributors want to avoid.

California’s doubling of refunds would be temporary — a duration for the change has yet to be decided — and is expected to cost $100 million. If approved by the Legislature the refund increase would take effect sometime during the next fiscal year that starts July 1.

It’s uncertain if any boost in recycling would last once the higher price ends, Sanborn acknowledged, but she hopes instead California will decide to make the increase permanent. She’s also hopeful pressure from states will spur attempts by U.S. Rep. Alan Lowenthal of California and U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon to craft a national bottle bill.

Newsom’s plan also attempts to ease a bottleneck that began years ago as more neighborhood recycling centers closed and Consumer Watchdog said many grocery stores also were refusing to take back empties in-store as required.

To increase access, Newsom’s administration proposes spending $100 million on grants to add about 2,000 automated recycling machines, also known as reverse vending machines, at high schools, colleges and retailers. Consumers dump their empty containers into the machines, which issue a refund.

Another $55 million would go for state-funded mobile recycling programs in rural areas and other places with few recycling options.

Consumers are very upset that “they are unable to return their bottles and cans and get their money back as promised,” said Sanborn, who also heads California’s Statewide Commission on Recycling Markets & Curbside Recycling.

Sanborn blamed the closure of many California recycling centers on the state’s failure to quickly adjust its complicated payment formula to meet changing market conditions.

Many of California’s recyclables go to China, which toughened standards in 2017 on accepting contaminated material, including plastics. The move “totally slammed the recycling industry” nationwide, said Kate O’Neill, a University of California, Berkeley, environmental science professor and author of the 2019 book “Waste.”

The U.S. market is recovering now with the addition of domestic recycling facilities, but there still is a problem matching supply to demand, O’Neill said.

Recycling officials had expected beverage consumption to drop during the pandemic, as it does during most economic downturns, Wagoner said. Instead, container sales in California increased by 2.5 billion over three years, to 27 billion last fiscal year, meaning a record number of deposits flowing into the state’s recycling fund.

The number of refundable containers recycled in California meanwhile hit a record high of more than 18.8 billion in 2021 — but that still left plenty of money on the table.

Repeated attempts to improve the state’s recycling system have struggled in the Legislature, even as California tries to boost its recycling rates, minimize food waste, and work toward a circular-use economy.

Wagoner said Friday’s proposal is an interim step while the administration continues talks with lawmakers over permanent fixes.

Democratic state Sen. Bob Wieckowski said he tried a bill last year with proposals similar to what the administration is now suggesting, “and they didn’t want to hear about it.” He anticipates people now hoarding their recyclables until the double redemption period, then facing long lines once it begins.

His proposal this year would put more responsibility on producers to recycle their containers.

“It has a little gimmicky nature to it,” Wieckowski said of the state’s plan. “We have 45 Band-Aids on this program, and sometime you have to get out of the Band-Aid business.”

Police investigating ‘appalling’ incident recorded inside a Wilmington High School bathroom



Police and school officials in Wilmington are investigating a “serious and disturbing physical altercation” inside a boys’ bathroom this week that left the superintendent of schools “appalled,” not only because of the incident, but because some students recorded video and posted it online.

The video is difficult to watch.

In a letter to the school community dated March 30th, Superintendent Glenn Brand said the incident happened on Tuesday and investigators are working to identify the students involved.

The recording sent to Boston 25 indicates a student was picked up inside the bathroom and had his head forced into a toilet inside a stall in the bathroom. The video below has been blurred due to the ages of those involved.

“I am truly appalled by the actions of these students which are unacceptable and do not represent the core values of this educational community,” said Supt. Brand. ”It is my expectation that each and every one of our students has the right to attend a school that is safe and supportive. While I recognize that the vast number of our students consistently make appropriate choices to support such an environment, we will have zero tolerance for those that do not.”

“The Wilmington Public School prioritizes, above all else, the safety, well-being and respect of all of our students and staff,” said Supt. Brand.

“It is therefore with tremendous disappointment that I write to inform you of a serious and disturbing physical altercation that occurred in one of the boys’ bathrooms (Tuesday),” said Brand. “Not only is the incident itself concerning, but also that some of our students recorded the altercation and posted this online.”

“All students who are found culpable will be held fully accountable and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken as well as the removal of appropriate privileges that are afforded to those students,” said Supt. Brand. “I assure you that we will pursue relevant legal actions should such be deemed warranted following the investigation.”

The superintendent also alluded to other recent trouble at the school.

“This incident comes in the wake of a number of other concerns recently involving troubling student behavior. Everyone has an obligation to help foster the type of school environments that our students deserve, including our staff, families and most importantly, our students themselves,” said Brand.

A statement posted to the school’s website on Friday by the Wilmington High School Student Class Officers, called the incident “horrific.”

“If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth a million, yet many of us were left speechless by the thoughtless actions of others that transpired earlier this week in one of our school bathrooms,” according to the statement. “These horrific actions perpetrated by an embarrassing group of individuals do not represent who we are as a student body. We are honor roll students, college bound-career focused seniors, varsity athletes, robotic champions and so much more. Our image should not be clouded by these individuals.”

Boston 25 spoke with Wilmington Police Chief Joe Desmond about the incident.

“Obviously there were a lot of kids in the bathroom and this young man was taken and physically dragged into the bathroom,” said Desmond.

The chief says the students pick the student up and lower him head down into the toilet. “It clearly looks like an assault as far as where I come from,” said Desmond.

Police are also looking to see if this incident rises to the level of a hate crime or civil rights violation. Chief Desmond says they have at least three recordings and they are working with the school to identify everyone involved.

“Kids should be able to go to school and feel safe and feel supported and not worried about being picked on or God forbid this incident is horrible. That poor kid” it’s terrible,” said concerned parent Roberta Biscan.

The school superintendent is scheduling bystander training that will be mandatory for all students. According to police, the case is moving quickly and charges are likely to be filed.

The Judds reunite for CMT Music Awards performance



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Judds, one of the most successful duos in country music in the 1980s, are reuniting to perform on the CMT Music Awards, their first major awards show performance together in more than two decades.

The mother-and-daughter duo of Naomi and Wynonna will perform their hit “Love Will Build a Bridge” on the awards show on April 11, airing on CBS and Paramount+, during an outdoor shoot in front of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.

It’s a fitting backdrop for the five-time Grammy winners, who will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in May.

“It feels both surreal and what a thrill it is. What a thrill to finally get her back on the stage because she’s been waiting for 20-plus years,” Wynonna told the AP of her mother, Naomi. “As a daughter and as an artist, it’s a win-win.”

Originally from Kentucky, Naomi was working as a nurse in the Nashville area when she and Wynonna started singing together professionally. Their unique harmonies, together with elements of acoustic music, bluegrass and blues, made them stand out in the genre at the time.

The Judds won nine Country Music Association Awards and seven from the Academy of Country Music and had more than a dozen No. 1 hits, including “Mama, He’s Crazy” and “Grandpa (Tell Me ’bout the Good Old Days).”

In 1990, Naomi Judd announced her retirement from performing due to chronic hepatitis. Wynonna has continued her solo career and they have occasionally reunited for special performances.

“To have all the incredible opportunities that I have had, being reminded of all that, just makes me very humbled and I just want to bask in the moment,” Naomi Judd told the AP.

This is also their first ever performance together at the CMT Music Awards. Country star Kacey Musgraves will introduce the pair prior to the performance.

“Music is the bridge between mom and me, and it it bonds us together. Even in the not easy times,” said Wynonna Judd. “We show up and we sing because that’s what love is about, right? So what a beautiful celebration.”

Hosted by country singer Kelsea Ballerini and actor Anthony Mackie, the fan-voted awards show will also feature performances by Ballerini, Kane Brown, Miranda Lambert, Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Cody Johnson, Little Big Town, Keith Urban, Carly Pearce and more.
