Would u get a tattoo with your husbands name?

Sun Dec 07, 2008 12:38 pm

hi girls,
Dh adn i have always said once we get married we would geta tattoo of each others name.... well now we r married :) and thinking of doing this as a special chrissy present together. im excited!! howver talking to others about it they are quite horrified and say "what if u dont stay together??? his name will always be there?"
we have been together for 8 years, he has been my best friend since i was 15 years old. if we divorced, regardless of whether i had a tattoo of his name ill never forget him./ he'll always be a part of me. and bsides i married him because i want to share my life with him!
im not letting others influence my opinion but would love to know other girls thoughts on the matter :)

My FH would kill me if I got a tatt, but he hates tatts.

Whenever I think of people getting tats of their partner's names I think of:

- Pamela Anderson 'Tommy' tattoo on her ring finger, changed to 'Mummy'
- Angelina 'I love billy bob' tattoo, taken off and changed to something else
- Johnny Depp 'Winona' forever, changed to "wino forever' :lol:

I mean c'mon, where's the class???

I wouldn't do it that's for sure!

I would do it in a heart beat no thinking about it at all would just do it and once we are married I want to actually get the whole family and a nice picture of something that represents our unity .. Only problem I have come across is that some tatt artist are sometimes reluctant to do name unless they are your kids names ... but if I tell them that I have 4 kids not 3 who are they to know any different.

Thanks Charli - i find it strange that tattoo artists are reluctant to do it?
im excited and i dont think that its not '"classy" as Kwitty said.
I think its special, mines going o be in place noone else will see. just something special between DH and i.

I wouldn't do it, but then, I wouldn't get a tattoo at all (of anything) - I don't like the idea of it for myself. Although I do like other people's tattoos :D It's just not for me personally, IYKWIM?

It's such a personal thing, and entirely up to you I think.

Fh wants to get my name on his forearm written in cursive handwriting style.
I really like the thought and think that it is very sweet of him to want to do that but I am still a little apprehensive about it.

DH and I have spoken of doing this, although something VERY subtle. But it just sorta fizzled out. I dunno, I would, but it is true that god forbid something goes wrong that you have a forever reminder.

I am not a tattoo person and no I wouldn't do it. Two totally separate issues.

I have no plans on parting with my husband but I wouldn't get his name tattooed on my body, regardless of how committed we are.

I'm planning on getting a small intricate "B" on my foot which will signify Brady, and my families surname that i'm leaving behind. If it's something you and your DH want to do together, then who are we to judge?

My husband has my name tattooed on his arm... but I don't have his. I'm too scared to get a tatt.

We make a lot of cheese grater jokes though. lol.

If it didn't hurt, I would have a bodyfull of tattoos...
I have my design all picked and ready to go (a Southern Corss with our wedding date and DH's name) and when I was in WA for our honeymoon I booked myself in at a tattooist, got in there and walked right out again when I heard the noise......
To me, tattoos are really personal - I don't think its tacky or anything to have someones name on your body for life.

If you want your hubbys name on you, go for it! Its your body!

For FH's 30th Bday this year, I got him a tattoo of a lady bug on my butt... we call eachother 'bug' (reference to "hey you love love you little fly lady bug) from Keith Murray's Candi Bar... I don't think that there is anything 'class-less' about it...

I wouldn't do it... even though I don't plan on ever breaking up with my soon to be hubby you don't know what lies ahead in life.

I'd perhaps get kids names tattooed on, or the names of people who have passed.

Perhaps not even names, something else that signifies it.

Nope I wouldn't either. If anything, I'd get something that symbolises him in the way of tattoo's. But never the name. As the other girls said, you don't know what lies ahead.

I would, if the mood took me. I hate the attitude "oh, yeah, I'm marrying the guy - but who knows what will happen in the future...?" If you've agreed to marry him, then you should be pretty darn sure you're going to be together for life! So I don't think you can justifiably say no to a name tat with the lame "but what if we break up?" excuse. But if you're afraid of needles, well that's a whole other story... :lol:

I love Tattoos - have 2 already with a 3rd planned for Feb. My FH has 1 so far with his 2nd coming in Feb too. That being said there is NO WAY I would get his name tattooed on me and vice versa. I am planning to add in my kids names. But I wouldn't do his. Its not that I think that one day we might split up or anything, we just dont agree on it, anything could happen to either of us at anytime, planned or not, tragic or not.
I am planning to get something that will symbolise him. 2 Large dragonflies together (me and him) one in blueish and one is purple/pink.
All I will stress to you is if you do go ahead with it is - Research your artist!! Look at there portfolios and there hygiene.
Good luck with your choice!
