Pete Davidson and Machine Gun Kelly are further fueling the speculation that the Saturday Night Live comedian got a tattoo inspired by the Cleveland rapper.

To take it back, MGK actually gave Davidson a REAL tattoo while filming Big Time Adolescence to solidify themselves as goal BFFs.

Then, when Davidson was spotted at a hockey game with his new love interest, Kate Beckinsale, fans noticed a brand-new double “X” tattoo on his neck.

Davidson’s newest ink is a pair of intersecting X’s just below his double black heart tattoos—which happen to be cover-ups for his previous Ariana Grande ink.

For some, a double-X represents the phrase “Where there is a will, there is a way."

But, it is possible that Davidson’s intersecting X ink could have a tie to rapper and friend MGK.

Machine Gun Kelly is known to use the phrase “EST 19XX.” The EST means “everyone stand together” with the “19XX” meant to represent any age of his fan base.

MGK and a lot of his crew also have double-X tattoos.

Now, MGK posted an Instagram video with Davidson and zoomed in on the comedian’s neck tattoo.

This definitely seems like some confirmation that it’s totally an MGK tattoo.

The rapper did a video with iHeart in 2017 explaining some of his tattoos. In the video you can see the double-X that he too has on his neck.

Do you think Davidson’s tatoo is MGK inspired? Sound off in the comments below!
