Comedian and SNL star Pete Davidson is in the process of saying goodbye to more than 100 tattoos he has on his body. In a recent chat with People, Davidson said that he predicts he will be ink-free by the time he turns 30.

Davidson has collected an impressive number of tattoos over the years but revealed back in May that he wants to remove them all. This process became a focal point of a recent commercial which he did for the Smartwater brand.

The clip, which was made available on YouTube, shows Davidson sitting in a chair while a medical professional is removing tattoos from his arm with a laser. He then says that he “made a lot of questionable choices, and a couple of them need removing” before asking whether his bad decisions were a result of being “dehydrated.”

After the commercial was made public, Davidson discussed his tattoo removal process with People. He told the media outlet that he would have his next session in a month or so as he needs to let his skin heal.

“They said by the time I’m 30, they should all be gone,” he explained. “So they got like two more years left of this.”

Between making commercials and removing tattoos, Pete Davidson lately managed to squeeze in a couple of big theatrical projects. Last year co-wrote and starred in the comedy The King of Staten Island, which is partially based on his real life. He also stars as Richard Hertz / Blackguard in the upcoming superhero flick Suicide Squad.
