At first glance, it might seem like Pete Davidson is acting like it’s the summer of 2018 again. The 25-year-old comedian has been spotted gallivanting around New York City with a new love interest: the one and only Kate Beckinsale. But this time it seems like he’s learned at least two very important life lessons. For one, maybe don’t go from dating to being engaged in a matter of weeks. And two, maybe don’t rush to get permanently inked in honor of your new boo, either.
This weekend, during which Davidson starred in a new episode of Saturday Night Live and squeezed in a PDA-filled hockey game with Beckinsale, the comedian showed off some new ink that thankfully has nothing to do with his not-Instagram-official-yet friend. (Well, at least not that we know of.)
On the left side of his neck, situated alongside two heart tattoos that are actually cover-up tattoos for two different Ariana Grande-inspired tats — yeah, he’s got a lot of them — Davidson now has a tattoo of two intersecting Xs.
While the real meaning behind this tattoo remains a mystery, we do have a few theories. Two Xs is known to be a Viking symbol meaning "where there is a will, there is a way," which is a rather lovely sentiment. Or, just spitballing here, maybe it’s a loving ode to what might be his favorite beer: Dos Equis. Or, hey, maybe it’s two Xs for, you know, his most notable past two exes.
Whatever it stands for, we’re just thrilled it wasn’t "Kate" in big block letters. Though, based on these intimate photos, there’s a good chance his tattoo artist is sketching that out now.
