I'm a tattoo artist – Pete Davidson's Kim Kardashian tats were a red flag he was 'obsessed' & 'desperate' for it to last | The Sun

PETE Davidson is officially back on the market – now single and covered in tattoos paying tribute to his ex.

One tattoo artist admits that Pete's multiple tats for Kim were a "red flag" – but he says that at least they're "juvenile" and "merely scribbles," and would be an "easy day at the office" for another artist to cover up.

Over the course of Kim and Pete's nine-month relationship, fans noticed at least four permanent tattoos that the SNL star had added to his body.

After she passed the baby bar, Pete got "my girl is a lawyer" inked on his clavicle.

He also appears to have gotten a tat reading "KNSCP" for Kim and her four kids, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Below that, he has the names "Jasmine" and "Aladdin" with an infinity sign, referencing the characters they played on SNL when they shared their first kiss.

The final one isn't technically a tattoo at all, but, according to Kim, a brand of her name on his shoulder.

"He's in the process of getting rid of his arm tats and his neck tats, so he's like, 'I don't want to be able to get rid of it or to cover it up and I just wanted it there as a scar on me,'" Kim told Ellen DeGeneres.

Adal Ray, who owns Art by Adal Ray at Sacred Tattoo in New York City,tells The U.S. Sun that he thinks Pete's excessive ink for Kim wasn't a great sign.

"The fact [that] Pete got multiple tattoos/marks for Kim is kind of a red flag of despair," he said.

"Seems as if he was really obsessed with the idea of this relationship, and got wacky desperate to show Kim how much he wanted it, wanted her, wanted their story to last.

"On the other hand, he may have felt that way but intentionally got very light text done, almost as small as tattooers are willing to go.

"Maybe he had the thought to cover it with some form of abstract, modern tattoo if it didn't work out. I am not sure of his level of dedication to his tattoo collection."

Luckily, he added, Pete's tattoos would be easy to cover.

"No Problem! A tattoo artist with expertise in cover-ups would have an 'easy day at the office' covering these," Adal said.

"Each will require a smallish tattoo graphic, color or dark shades may be needed, but these are merely scribbles in the flesh.

"They are sort of squeezed into tight spaces between other tattoos, but the right-shaped design would do it, or he could choose to cover them all with one larger tattoo. That would require multiple sessions and that is what I would suggest for him."

Adal added that Pete's tattoos "appear to be done impulsively, and fast, probably with new style equipment known as tattoo pens."

"In my opinion, these are hardly permanent devotional tattoos and very far from body art," he went on, describing them as "juvenile."

"I imagine Pete could get an appointment with a cover-up tattooer or maybe even walk into a standard tattoo shop and get his tattoos covered for about $300-$500 each."

He does think this would be a good time to "wipe the slate clean, cover them all, and collect a real work of art" – though that could cost $2,000 or more.

The only exception is Pete's "KIM" tattoo, if it is in fact branding.

That one could cause a lot of trouble for him when it comes to cover-ups.

"If that is true, that one is a different story. That is essentially a burn scar and those are often textured and take months to years to heal before anything can be tattooed over them," he said.

Ultimately, though, Adal said he isn't here to judge.

"Is it a bad idea? Meh… again, the tattoos are light," he said.

"Lovers come into the shop and want these things. Sometimes impulsively, sometimes in place of "please forgive me" flowers, and sometimes because [of] love. We can't be peoples' conscience.

"I have almost 30 years in tattoo, I've seen a lot of these lover tattoos. I have a couple myself. although different in ways, the impulse is the same.

"The impulse is to hold that love by any means necessary and to show them," he said.
