The critic then later responded to someone wanting to know why. He said, “He even showed his hand, which is already done. 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.”
If this is true, it will take a lot of time, money, and pain. According to Body Art Guru, Pete Davidson has a minimum of 104 tattoos. Some of them include a portrait of Hilary Clinton, a Dumbledore quote, a smiling toaster, and Ariana Grande’s cover art from her Dangerous Woman album.
The King of Staten Island is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
