The meaning behind Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s matching tattoos

Given the intense focus and drama surrounding Pete Davidson’s whirlwind romance with Kim Kardashian, it’s easy to forget that the former “SNL” star was once linked to a number of other prominent women.

Most famous of all is none other than Grammy-winning singer Ariana Grande, who Davidson dated for about a year. Similar to Kardashian and Davidson, much of their relationship has been documented through social media and in tweets, which can easily be classified as TMI via Elle. The singer even released a sweet, romantic track titled “Pete Davidson” as part of her 2018 album Sweetner. Grande also name-checked Davidson in her hit song “Thank You, Next.”

Despite the couple’s PDA, Grande and Davidson’s relationship didn’t last very long. TMZ reports that Grande broke up with Davidson in October 2018. Around that time, a source close to the “Honeymoon Avenue” singer spilled the relationship tea on People. “It was way too much too soon,” the source said. “It’s not shocking to anyone.” Fortunately — or unfortunately, depending on your attitude — the couple, who were once engaged, got several tattoos during their relationship to commemorate their time together. Given the couple’s tendency to share (and sometimes share too much), we know what they mean.

This is what Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s tattoos mean

Ariana Grande is no stranger to a tattoo gun, as the singer has over 55 tattoos, according to Insiders. However, she only has a few of them in mind with Pete Davidson. According to a recap from People, Grande and Davidson shared a pair of matching tattoos. They contained a series of clouds, the acronym “HTGKMO” which means “honest to God, turn me over,” and the word “born again.” The former couple also both got “Millie Tendresse,” a phrase made out of poplar from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” a movie Grande referenced in her song “7 Rings.” Grande later matched Davidson’s “4818” tattoo, which was meant to honor his late father, a firefighter who died on September 11th.

As for her unique tattoos, Davidson also sported the same bunny ears that Grande wore to promote her album, Dangerous Woman. Eventually, at the end of Grande, she got a “Pete” tattoo on her ring finger and the word “always” — reportedly a nod to their shared love of “Harry Potter” — on her rib cage.

Despite the sweet vibes, both stars have covered some of the tattoos. In December 2018, Grande capped her “4818” tribute to Davidson’s late father with the word “Myron” — the dog she adopted with late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, according to Allure. As for Davidson, he replaced his “Millie Tendresse” tattoo with “cursed,” sending perhaps the least subtle message in breakup history, per USA Today.

But despite Pete Davidson’s public split from Ariana Grande after getting several tattoos in her honor — and previously covering a tattoo honoring ex-girlfriend “Umbrellla Academy” star Cazzie David, he still gave his latest girlfriend Kim, per People Kardashian the same treatment. Early in their relationship, Davidson got a tattoo of “My girlfriend is a lawyer” on her, according to Page Six.

The Kardashians star also boasted about Davidson’s ink during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show. “He’s got some tattoos, some cute ones he got,” Kardashian shared during the show. “I think my favorite line is, ‘My girl is a lawyer.’ And that’s really cute,” via Billboard. During the same recording, Kardashian also revealed that Davidson had her name burned into his skin. And though fans have wondered if Davidson has removed his Kardashian-inspired tattoos, following the split, Life&Style confirms that Davidson’s shrine to his most recent relationship lives on for now.
