Pete Davidson Went Shirtless at NYE Rehearsals - See Progress on His Tattoo Removals!

Pete Davidson has been in the process of getting his tattoos removed for the last couple years and you can see the progress in his new shirtless photos!

The 28-year-old SNL star was seen going shirtless while rehearsing for his New Year’s Eve special on Thursday (December 30) in Miami, Fla.

Pete‘s arms noticeably have less tattoos on them when you compare them to photos snapped in November 2019. A lot of the color from his arm tattoos have been removed with the outlines still appearing.

While being interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers in May 2021, Pete explained why he’s getting them removed.

“I didn’t think that they would put me in stuff — like the movie business. I thought after SNL, it’s a wrap,” Pete joked while talking about his roles in King of Staten Island and The Suicide Squad.

He continued, “People don’t realize, I’m kinda old — I’m 27, but in Hollywood, that’s like 40.”

Whenever he appears in movies, Pete has to get his ink covered.

“It takes like three hours — you have to get there three hours earlier to cover all your tattoos, because for some reason, people in movies, they don’t have them that much,” Pete said. “Burning them off is worse than getting them. Because not only are they, like, burning off your skin, but you’re wearing these big goggles, right? So you can’t see anything and the doctor’s in there with you.”

He continued, “Before [the doctor] goes to laser each tattoo, you have to hear him announce what the tattoo is to make sure if you want to keep it or not. I’ll just be sitting there all high off of the Pro-Nox — which is actually quite fun, I enjoy it — and then all of a sudden I’ll just hear, ‘Are we keeping the Stewie Griffin smoking a blunt?’ And then I have to sit there and be like, ‘No, Dr. G.’ It’s really embarrassing. Are we keeping the owl that licks the Tootsie Pop?”

“If you’re going to get tattoos, just make sure you really, really want it — and aren’t on mushrooms,” he said.

FYI: Pete is wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses.
