Is Pete Davidson getting his tattoos removed?

You’ve probably heard by now that Pete Davidson, 27-year-old star of Saturday Night Live (SNL), is reportedly removing all of his tattoos. While there is plenty of speculation about why he might be going for a clean slate, another question is: “Is it even possible to remove all of those tattoos!?” Let’s investigate.

Why Does Pete Davidson Want to Remove All His Tattoos?

Davidson, a native New Yorker and star of Judd Apatow’s “King of Staten Island” (a semi-biographical movie about Pete Davidson’s life), revealed to film critic Mike McGranaghan that he is in the process of removing all of his tattoos.

In response to shocked Pete Davidson fans, McGranaghan gave some insight into a part of the reason why he might be removing his ink. “He said it takes 3-4 hours in the makeup chair to cover them, so he figured ‘it would be easier to get them burned off.’” Another article written by Page Six recognises that Lorne Michaels of SNL might be pleased, as actor and comedian John Mulaney previously relayed that Micheals isn’t a fan of the ink Davidson has. Our question still remains, why would that matter?

When it comes to tattoo removal, career pressure is a common reason for wanting to get rid of ink. Many of our clients come to us for similar reasons, particularly if they’re in careers that have appearance restrictions, such as military or flight attendant regulations.

How Can Pete Davidson or Anyone Else Remove 100+ Tattoos?

With over 100 tattoos, Pete Davidson has no shortage of artwork to remove. If you’re unfamiliar with the tattoo removal process, Pete saying he would rather “burn” his tattoos off than cover them with makeup can sound alarming. However, tattoo removal (at least laser tattoo removal), doesn’t burn your skin– it just breaks up the ink in your tattoo so that your body processes it out. It’s true there are other removal methods, but laser tattoo removal is the safest and most effective form of tattoo removal, which is our bet on how Pete is removing his tattoos.

Something most people don’t know about tattoo removal is that it takes multiple sessions over time to remove a tattoo. If Pete Davidson is doing laser tattoo removal, expect to see his tattoos fade over the next few months and years.
