Fans are attempting to paint Kim Kardashian’s new relationship with “SNL” star Pete Davidson as a saner, calmer existence than what she had with ex-husband Kanye West. “KUWTK” fans find it adorable that this couple goes to the movies on Staten Island and hits In-N-Out for burgers like regular people. However, those same fans were slightly taken aback by Kardashian’s latest admission about her new beau.
During a recent appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the reality star shared a few details about her relationship, which included the confirmation that Davidson had gotten “a few” tattoos of her name which Kardashian described as “so cute.”
The “Kim” tattoo fans spotted in photos isn’t actually a tattoo; it’s an even more permanent form of body modification. As Kardashian explained to DeGeneres:
“Umm, yeah he has a few tattoos, a few cute ones that he got,” Kim explained. “But this one is a … the ‘Kim’ isn’t a tattoo it’s actually a branding. Like a branding. Because … he wanted to do something that was different. Because the first tattoo he got I was like ‘oh, so cute.’ The second I was like, ‘oh, you know, whatever, so cute.’”
Another tattoo the comedian got in honor of Kardashian says, “my girl is a lawyer.” This alludes to the fact that the 44-year-old reality star passed California’s “baby bar” law exam in December 2021.
The “KUWTK” alum explained the thoughts behind the branding.“I just think he was like ‘I want something that’s there that I can’t get rid of my tattoos,’” Kardashian continued “Because he’s in the process of getting rid of his arm tats and neck tats. So, he was like ‘I don’t want to be able to get rid of it, cover it up, and I just wanted it there like a scar on me.’”
Some fans were not equally charmed by Davidson’s permanent display of affection, especially considering the couple has only been dating for a few months and Kardashian finalized her divorce from West just two weeks ago.
“Can we stop romanticizing branding. It is not ‘cute’ that Pete Davidson carved Kim K’s name into his skin … it is concerning,” one follower shared on Twitter.
Others pointed out how Davidson tends to get name tattoos of any woman he’s dating, including his ex-fiance Ariana Grande.
“I love Pete but like… this gave me the ick. Like you didn’t learn from the ariana tattoos?????” another fan wondered. Unlike with tattoos, the branding can’t be removed with laser treatments.
“I remember thinking it was a 🚩 when Pete got Ariana’s bunny ears tattooed on his neck. Branding Kim’s name on his chest is next level 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩!!!” another Twitter user agreed.
“Pete Davidson branded Kim’s name on his chest (a woman who he just started dating a few months ago) but claims he wants to ‘help’ Kanye with his mental health. No comment,” another said.
Many fans were expecting Kardashian’s hookup with Davidson to become a short-lived, post-marriage fling and nothing more. However, as time goes by it seems their relationship is getting more serious by the day. The branding and tattoos are just the latest examples of Kardashian and Davidson proving that point.
