OK. Somebody seriously needs to talk to Pete Davidson about girlfriend tattoos.

Pete Davidson has made a few, let’s call them mistakes, in the past year.

First, he agreed to play an underwhelming and lazy room-mate in a Netflix original.

Then he got a tattoo of his now ex-girlfriend, Cazzie David’s, face. On his arm.

He also proposed to Ariana Grande after they had been dating for about two weeks.

Then earlier this month, the 24-year-old asked his tattoo artist to give him an Ariana Grande tattoo, whilst turning the tattoo of Cazzie’s face into a… into a tree?

The Saturday Night Live star got his fiancée’s “dangerous bunny” symbol tattooed behind his ear, and her initials “AG” on his right thumb.

The pair also got matching tattoos on their hands in the exact same spot to ‘symbolise their love’, Pete’s read “Reborn” and Ariana’s read “HTGKMO” which means “honest to god knock me out”.

We had a good night.

While this is all a bit cringe, the real issue here is the huge fact that at the same time Pete Davidson was inking out over Ariana, he asked his tattoo artist to turn the huge tattoo of Cazzie David’s face into a tree.

DUDE. The answer is right in front of you. Do not get another tattoo of a romantic interest.

Tattoos are permanent and not all of them can be turned into trees.

People do not generally get tattoos of people they have been dating for approximately a month. Do you hear me?

The tattoo artist, John Mesa, agrees.

“After we were done, I told Pete, ‘Hey, dude, let’s just stop with the girlfriend tatts until after [Ariana’s] your wife.’ Because relationships come and go, and Pete is a really young man… I think that went in one ear and out the other,” he told Page Six.

Now, Pete, there’s just one thing we need to say.

Listen to your tattoo artist and please learn from your mistakes.
