Pete Davidson and Machine Gun Kelly pose at the premiere of the film "Big Time Adolescence" during the 2019 Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 28, 2019 in Park City, Utah. 

Pete Davidson and Machine Gun Kelly are in Park City, Utah, for the premiere of their film, Big Time Adolescence. In one of the movie's scenes, MGK's character tattoos Davidson's character's name, Zeke, on the comedian's leg. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the cast revealed that the tattoo was real.  

"It was pretty fun," Davidson joked, noting that he wanted the experience to be realistic. Upon showing the tattoo to the camera, Kelly explained that the "Z" in Zeke is so much thicker than the rest of the letters because it was "clearly when they were starting to roll camera."  

In a different interview with Variety, Davidson said that the last time he was in Park City was four years ago when he entered a rehab facility in the city. "I love Park City, Utah because the last time I was here I was in rehab, so it's nice to be on the other side and it also speaks wonders to your rehab facilities," he joked before taking a swig of his beer.
