Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson has marked his admiration for failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton by apparently getting a tattoo of her face inked on his right leg.
“Wanted to get @hillaryclinton a Christmas gift so I got a tattoo of my hero,” Davidson wrote in an Instagram post. “Thanks for being such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe.”
The tattoo artist, Jon Mesa of No Idols Tattoo in New York, confirmed that the tattoo was both real and permanent.
“Yes, its real,” he told Us Weekly on Friday. “Just did it last night at my shop No Idols Tattoo on Bowery and Grand! It’s a small one on his right leg.”
Clinton later thanked Davidson for his admiration.
“Thanks, @petedavidson, This makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years,” she wrote. “But seriously, I’m honored. Merry Christmas my friend.”
Davidson joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in 2014, when he was just 20 years old. He is known for his fierce opposition to President Donald Trump, and currently presents SNL‘s “Weekend Update,” which involves him and other figures mocking the current administration.
In one update, Davidson accuses Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon of anti-Semitism.
“They say give Trump a chance and the first thing he did was hire a chief strategist who everybody is saying hates Jews. They say no Bannon doesn’t hate Jewish people, he’s worked alongside them. Yeah, and Mel Gibson did four Lethal Weapons with Danny Glover, that proves nothing.”
The 24-year-old also made headlines last year after responding to Trump’s criticism of the show by simply saying: “Never been more proud. F*ck you b*tch.”
