Ariana Grande gets a tattoo in honor of Pete Davidson's father - a 9/11 hero
Since they began dating the relationship between Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande has been moving forward on a very fast pace.
There may still some haters and nay-sayers out there who believe that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are not going to be together for too long. Well, from the way their relationship is progressing, it doesn't look like the young couple is slowing down for anyone.
Ariana has taken a serious next step in cementing her relationship with Pete by getting a tattoo in commemoration of his late father Scott Davidson. Scott - a firefighter - was killed during September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center. Pete was just seven-years-old at the time.
The tattoo, which reads "8418" is inspired by Scott's badge number and is etched on her left foot. Pete, too, has the same digits tattooed on his left arm. He has been very open about losing his father and often brings him up in his stand-up routines.
During the 'Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber,' he had alluded to the tragic death of his father a couple of times. At one point, he was commenting about one of the roasters, Snoop Dogg's films and said, “'Soul Plane' was the worst experience of my life involving a plane.” He also revealed that he used to be sad growing up without a father, until he met Justin’s father, Jeremy, after which he became grateful.
Despite the crassness of jokes, it is quite evident that Pete's father is still a huge part of his life and Ariana seems to understand it quite well.
Earlier this month, Pete also got two tattoos inked in honor of Ariana; her trademark bunny mask behind his ear and her initials on his thumb. He also got an older tattoo redesigned, which he got done while dating old ex-girlfriend Cazzie David.
Pete's tattoo artist Jon Mesa revealed that he advised the 'Saturday Night Live' cast member against getting tattoos honoring girlfriends until they get married. However, he points out, "I think that went in one ear and out the other."
Ariana and Pete have been gushing about each other non-stop, ever since, they went public with their relationship. During an appearance on the 'Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' Pete had even revealed that he feels like he won a contest.
"I feel like I won a contest. I'm f*****g lit, Jimmy. It's so lit," the comic told the chat show host, also revealing that he often gets a lot of respect from fellow men for landing a phenomenal woman like Ariana.
"Did you ever see that Derek Jeter commercial where he's retiring and everybody just tips their hats. Some dude came up to me and said, 'Dude, you gave me hope,'" he said.
