21 Celebrities Who Have Gotten Their Tattoos Removed

  • Tattoo removal requires an in-office laser treatment.
  • Many celebrities have undergone the tattoo removal process.
  • From Pete Davidson to Victoria Beckham, here are the stars who have gotten their tattoos removed.

Some of us may have a habit of holding celebrities to a higher standard, but really, they make some pretty questionable choices in the same way that the rest of us do — including getting tattoos that they later regret. As a result, many stars have been open about the less-than-stellar ink that they're now tasked with getting removed. Pete Davidson, for example, recently gave fans an update on his decision to have his extensive — and we do mean extensive — collection of tattoos removed.

"I get my next treatment in like a month or so," he told People. "They said by the time I'm 30, they should all be gone. So they got like two more years left of this." According to Body Art Guru, Davidson has over 100 tattoos, most of which are tributes to past relationships and people who have inspired him (like that tattoo of Hillary Clinton). Most recently, he also reportedly removed his tattoo for Kim Kardashian that read "my girl is a lawyer."

Of course, while Pete Davidson's tattoo removal journey is one of the most recent ones that have sent fans into a frenzy, he definitely isn't the only famous person to have a tattoo (or two) removed. From Victoria Beckham to Khloé Kardashian to Pharrell Williams, read ahead to see a few other celebrities who sat through the pain of tattoo removal — and spoke candidly about the process along the way.
