SNL Member Pete Davidson Gets Hilary Clinton Tattoo on Arm as Christmas Gift; Her Response Leaves Netizens in Splits
Fans and fandoms often go to great extent to express their love for the celebrities. It varies from engaging in arguments with other ‘fandoms’, sending gifts to their favourite celebrities, writing open letters for them and in some cases, even sending marriage proposals! A recent example of such unwavering love from a fan is for none other than the 2016 US Presidential nominee Hilary Clinton! And her fan was actor and Saturday Night Live member Pete Davidson. Davidson, on December 16, put up a post on Instagram of a “Christmas Gift” that he wanted to give to his “hero” Hilary Clinton. And the gift was a tattoo of the former first lady of the United States of America. What’s more, Hilary not just liked the tattoo but also replied to the post with a cheeky comment.
The tattoo is a classic image of Hilary, dressed in a suit and her trademark smile. Right from the hair to the accessories to the expression, the tattoo has been drawn perfectly. It has been drawn by Jon Mesa, who also posted the tattoo on her Instagram page. Davidson’s post on Instagram thanked Hilary for being such a “badass” and “one of the strongest people in the universe.”
Here is the Hilary Clinton tattoo posted by Davidson:

The tattoo was widely appreciated by the netizens and got close to 45,000 likes in a few hours. But what made the post go viral was when Hilary Clinton herself responded to it. She said that she is honoured by this gesture and wished him a merry Christmas. Further, she cracked a joke that this also makes it a little less awkward that she has had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years! Her comment on Pete’s post read, “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.” Screenshots of Hilary’s response was widely shared on the social media and her sense of humour won the hearts of many.
