- Pete Davidson covered up his tattoo inspired by Ariana Grande‘s signature “Dangerous Woman” bunny ears.
- The tattoo, which is on his neck, is now a filled-in heart with an accompanying small A.
- Fans who noticed the modified ink have speculated the couple’s relationship is on the rocks.
- According to Page Six, Davidson covered the original tattoo so he could match a heart that Grande apparently has on her body.
The “Saturday Night Live” star was spotted at Yankee Stadium in New York on Monday with costar Chris Redd, producer Lorne Michaels, and film director Steven Spielberg. In photographs taken from the sporting event, Davidson’s ink, which appears on his neck, appears to have been transformed from the animal ears to a black heart with a small A next to it. The 24-year-old got the “Dangerous Woman” tattoo in early June 2018.
Here’s a closer look at the new design.
According to Page Six, their relationship is still intact and the comedian simply changed the tattoo to match a heart that Grande apparently has on her body.
After fans noticed the alteration, they immediately began speculating the couple might be on the rocks.

Since going public with their engagement, Davidson and Grande have gotten several tattoos inspired by each other, including a few matching ones.
Recently, the comedian copied the “God Is a Woman” singer and got ink on the back of his neck that reads “Mille tendresse.” He also got a tattoo inspired by their pet pig, Piggy Smalls, and Grande’s initials on his thumb. Additionally, Grande has a tattoo that matches her beau’s of the badge number of his father, who died in 9/11.
A representative for Davidson didn’t immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.
