So … ok … as far as I can ascertain, Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy) and Gabe Saporta (Cobra Starship) got themselves into a little bet … and while I’m not entirely sure what the bet was about, I do know that Pete lost and Gabe won. And so, because Gabe was the winner and Pete was the loser, the bet had to be paid … Pete Wentz got a tattoo of Gabe Saporta’s face on his leg … and shared the whole experience on Twitter:
Here is the series of tweets from Gabe Saporta about this tattoo bet thing:
It’s all happening! @petewentz is getting my face tattooed by @dansmithunknown backstage at ClubNokia in LA right / It’s done. I am a part of @petewentz forever. Be careful when you wish for… / “Wow. Tonight was so crazy. Did it even really happen? I mean did @petewentz really get @gabrielsaporta’s face tattooed on his leg by @dansmithunknown?
Here is the series of tweets from Pete Wentz:
my head hurts. i was buzzed lightyear last night. followed thru on a gentlemens bet w/@gabrielsaporta now i have 1 more bad tattoo. / Oh ps to clarify @dansmithunknown did rad work and has a cool kiwi accent. Its just a bad tat to get gabeybaby.
Apparently, there is more to the bet because Pete added:
the real question is will @gabrielsaporta hold up his end of the bet if “hot mess” goes gold? either way fun show last night. good crowd.
I guess we’ll have to wait to find out how well Cobra Starship’s album Hot Mess does in sales to find out who will win the next round of betting … and what the price will be for the loser.
I gotta say,
the tattoo doesn’t look all that much like Gabe A-HA! THIS is the photo of Gabe the tattoo is based on and yes, it does look like him … I guess it’s cool that Pete is a man of his word and got the tattoo after losing the bet. Tho, I should add, it’s not really that cool at all to bet about getting tattoos.
