Today in shocking news, Pete Davidson is reportedly removing every single one of his tattoos.

According to film critic Mike McGranaghan, the SNL star — who reportedly has over 100 tats — recently revealed that he was getting rid of them all during a virtual Q&A for his new movie, The King of Staten Island.

"Here's a scoop: Pete Davidson is in the process of getting all his tattoos removed!," McGranaghan tweeted, before adding that the comedian "even showed his hand, which is already done."

"He said it takes 3-4 hours in the makeup chair to cover them," he continued in a follow-up response to a fan. "So he figured 'it would be easier to get them burned off.'"

That said, a number of fans have since taken to Twitter to express their grief over the "sad" news, with many lamenting the loss of what appears to be a big part of the comedian's sex appeal.

"Losing sleep over Pete Davidson saying he's getting his tattoos removed," as one distraught person wrote. Meanwhile another went on to add, "Pete Davidson removing his tattoos has me so sad. Now I have to find another tall sad man with tattoos to be in love with."

But even if Davidson's big dick energy isn't enough to save him in the eyes of some admirers, he still has plenty of options as one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors. After all, the comic spent most of 2018 making headlines as Ariana Grande's fiancé before the two broke off their engagement after six months. And since then, he's been romantically linked to the likes of Kate Beckinsale, Phoebe Dynevor, Margaret Qualley and Kaia Gerber.

In terms of the tattoo debacle though, Davidson has yet to publicly address the decision. In the meantime though, you can see what else people are saying, below.
