Davidson had Cazzie David's name written on his ring finger, but she said he covered it after they broke up.

The couple initially met when David's father, "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" creator Larry David, appeared on "Saturday Night Live" in 2015.

They began dating shortly after, and Davidson got numerous tattoos dedicated to his girlfriend during their two-year-long relationship.

One of the designs was a tattoo of her name written in cursive on his ring finger, the "Umbrella Academy" actor revealed in her 2020 essay collection "No One Asked For This."

When Davidson broke up with David in May 2018, she wrote that he covered the tattoo tribute with black ink.

In December 2020, the comedian, who read David's book before it hit shelves and is mentioned in the acknowledgments, told Insider that he was on good terms with his ex.

"I'm really happy for her. It did well, and, you know, we're cool. I wish her nothing but the best," Davidson said, adding, "I think she wrote a really funny book and I hope it stays on the chart."

He also got a self-portrait David drew as a child tattooed on his forearm but has since concealed it.

Early in his relationship with David, the "SNL" cast member got a large cartoon drawing of her tattooed on the inside of his forearm.

During an October 2016 interview with Complex, Davidson explained that the design is based on a self-portrait that David drew when she was 5 years old.

Shortly after the relationship ended in 2018, Davidson's tattoo artist Jon Mesa posted since-deleted photos showing that the comedian had covered the tattoo by mid-May. A new design featuring a forest and a crescent moon concealed the original illustration.

After Mesa covered the cartoon, he said he warned Davidson, who had moved on with popstar Ariana Grande, to slow down with the relationship-inspired tattoos until he permanently settles down.

"I told Pete, 'Hey, dude, let's just stop with the girlfriend tats until after [Grande's] you're wife. Because relationships come and go, and Pete is a really young man. [But] I think that went in one ear and out the other," Mesa told Page Six.

Days after reports broke about Davidson and Ariana Grande's relationship, they appeared to have gotten matching cloud tattoos.

Around the same time the comedian and the singer began spending time together in May 2018, fans noticed that they both had small clouds tattooed on their left middle fingers.

According to MTV News, clouds hold a special significance to Grande, who released a perfume called Cloud Eau de Parfum and frequently incorporates the symbol in her music.

Neither Davidson nor Grande confirmed that they got the ink together, but the designs did appear in an identical spot on their fingers in unison.

In David's 2020 essay collection, she recalled seeing a photo of the cloud on Davidson's finger soon after their split. She said it covered her favorite emoji, which was previously tattooed in the same spot.

"And that is the exact moment when all emojis were ruined forever and I began living in a 'Black Mirror' episode," David wrote.

He tattooed the mask from Grande's "Dangerous Woman" album cover behind his ear. Later, he had it reshaped into a heart.

Two weeks into their public relationship, Davidson tattooed the bunny mask Grande wears on her 2016 album "Dangerous Woman" album cover behind his ear. As though he was foreshadowing their whirlwind relationship, the comedian wore a strikingly similar mask in a 2017 "SNL" sketch titled "Beck and Kyle."

Artist London Reese shared a photo of the finished design in early June 2018 and wrote: "We had a good night."

Shortly before TMZ broke the news that Davidson and Grande had called off their engagement, the comedian covered the bunny ears with a large black heart.

The comedian also got Grande's initials written on his thumb, though he later covered the tribute with a kite.

Davidson appeared to get the "AG" tattoo at the same time that he got the bunny mask, as Reese shared photos of the two designs simultaneously. He eventually covered the initials with a small kite.

Davidson debuted a tattoo of Grande's surname on the side of his torso. Post-breakup, he turned it into a keyhole.

The comedian displayed the swooping cursive script while attending a 2018 New York Fashion Week event. He's since covered the surname with a solid black keyhole.

He got a tattoo that reads "mille tendresse" while engaged to Grande, who has an identical design. Now, it reads "cursed."

In 2014, Grande got a tattoo on the back of her neck that reads "mille tendresse," a French phrase that translates to "one thousand tendernesses."

The words appear in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961)," one of the singer's all-time favorite films (the movie also gets a shout-out in her 2019 track "7 Rings").

Four years later, in September 2018, paparazzi photos revealed that Davidson got an identical tattoo in the same spot.

After he and Grande ended their relationship, the comedian concealed the phrase. A since-deleted photo shared by Mesa in February 2019 revealed that Davidson covered the tattoo with the word "cursed."

Davidson poked fun at his Grande-inspired tattoos while headlining "Judd & Pete for America" days after TMZ announced the breakup.

"I've been covering a bunch of tattoos, that's fun," Davidson said, per E! News.

He continued, "I'm fucking zero for two in the tattoo [department]. Yeah, I'm afraid to get my mom tattooed on me, that's how bad it is."

The comedian added several Kim Kardashian-inspired tattoos to his collection, including one that he can never remove.

Davidson began dating Kardashian after she hosted "SNL" in October 2021. During an appearance on a March episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the SKIMS founder revealed that the "Big Time Adolescence" actor had gotten "a few tattoos" inspired by their relationship.

Confirming that Davidson has paid tribute to her with more than three designs, she said her favorite one sits on his collarbone. It reads: "My girl is a lawyer."

Kardashian has been studying to earn her law degree and passed California's First-Year Law Students' Examination in 2021.

While Davidson has previously gotten ink to honor his girlfriends, he took things one step further by branding Kardashian's first name on his chest.

"The 'Kim' one isn't a tattoo. It's actually a branding because he wanted to do something that was really different," Kardashian explained.

Despite his efforts to remove his arm and neck tattoos, Davidson wanted a permanent tribute to Kardashian.

"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 like a scar on me,'" she told DeGeneres.

Fans speculated that one of Davidson's tattoos pays tribute to Kardashian and her four children.

After performing a stand-up set at "Netflix is a Joke: The Festival" in late April, Davidson departed from Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre with Kardashian. In paparazzi photos taken of the couple, a small tattoo on Davidson's neck appears to contain five letters: KNSCP.

After the pictures surfaced online, fans speculated that the acronym stands for Kim, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm — Davidson's girlfriend and the four young children she shares with her ex-husband Kanye West.

However, the "King of Staten Island" actor has not confirmed the ink's significance.
