Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande have both been hard at work concealing tattoos, inspired by and dedicated to their relationship, since announcing their split in October.
Davidson’s most recent cover-up is on the back of his neck, where the comedian previously had the phrase “mille tendresse.”
Tattoo artist Jon Mesa posted a photo of Davidson’s back on Sunday, which reveals a new tattoo of the word “cursed” in bold, black font with a reddish background.
Davidson had originally inked the French phrase in September to match the exact same tattoo Grande had gotten in 2014.
“Mille tendresse” is French for “one thousand tendernesses.” The phrase appears in the film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” starring Audrey Hepburn, which Grande has cited as her “all time favorite” movie.
Davidson had previously covered the bunny ears on the side of his neck – inspired by the mask that Grande wore on the cover of her third album, “Dangerous Woman” – with a black heart.
For her part, Grande has covered numerous Davidson-inspired tattoos: A tribute to his father is now a tribute to her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller; Davidson’s first name on her left ring finger is covered by a black heart; and a matching tattoo of the word “reborn” has been concealed by a plant.
The photo posted by Mesa, however, also reveals that Davidson has preserved a tattoo of the word “always” on his upper back, which matches a tattoo of the same word on Grande’s rib cage.
When Grande revealed her “always” tattoo in July, People reported that she had gotten the word inked in Davidson’s handwriting.
Of course, it’s possible that Grande has gotten her “always” covered by now and simply hasn’t revealed the new design. But as of Sunday, Davidson’s is still intact.
