    @lcutter711: I voted YES.

    I would most definitely like him to cover or remove it, but the final decision would be his. His body. But if he didn’t want to then I would let it go- but I would be much more comfortable if he would explain why.

    If the situation was reversed, I would want to get rid of it but the decision would be mine alone. Nobody chooses things for my body except for me. (I take DH’s preferences into consideration, but if I really want to shave my head then my preference trumps his.)

    EDIT: Saw your update! Sorry, late to the game. That is great news. 🙂 Have a happy wedding!

    @Bebealways:  +1 I’m thinking of that TV show Bad Ink… where they turn tattoos that were poorly done or no longer wanted into much better designs that completely conceal the original.

    Glad he’s doing something about it. If that were my Fiance I would want it gone ASAP!!

    @jennmariee:  yes!! LOL, I was going to post a WHOLE LIST of words that start with Alli… but idk how OP would feel about it. My personal favorite is allium. Its a wonderful flower and if I had been in a lesbian relationship with Alli and got her name on my arm, thats how I would fix it.

    I am usually pretty relax about these kinds of things… but that would bother me. My DH had a playboy bunny on his back when we met and five weeks later he changed it because he knew I was the one. The new one is awesome.

    I would want him to have it covered or removed. But ultimately, it’s up to him. I would suggest a cover up but can’t force him to do it. If he didn’t cover it up or get it removed I would just want to know why.

    I always assume that if someone has a tattoo of an ex, and keeps it, that maybe they are not completely over them. Name tattoos are just a bad idea all around.

    I’d definitely want him to get it covered – it’s typically cheaper than laser removal and usually looks better, as long as you have a decent artist.

    If I had an ex’s name tattooed on me, I’d get it covered up as soon as possible.  But that’s just me.

    @lcutter711:  Sounds like the plan is already in action to have it covered, but I was going to suggest that the cover up tattoo would be a great wedding gift from him to you! 

    I definity wouldn’t be comfortable with an exes name, but like others have said, I don’t think I would be pushing him to do it unless he wanted to.

    @lcutter711:  My husband has a tattoo of his ex wife’s name. Its never bothered me and I would never ask him to cover or remove it. After all, he was married to her. Its a part of his past, part of who he is. Its not like it takes away from his love for me in any way.

    @lcutter711:  I was just watching the show Bad Ink about people getting bad tattoos covered up (with much nicer ones)! I would definitely want my husband to get it removed or covered up! It’s just icky and a constant reminder of the past! If he’s on board with getting it done, I think you should make an appointment asap and get it done and over with! Hope it all works out!

    OMG YES YES YES YES

    I have a similar situation my Fiance has a tatto that takes up his entire upper arm, and he actually divulged on our first date he got it post break upw ith a Girlfriend…. So it is definitely one of those EMo “i still love you” tattoos about another girl….

    I want to puke every time I see it but it is so huge and “artsy” looking i don’t think i could ever bring myself to ask him to cover it up….
    Although I wish he would offer.

    @EsC87:  Oy, that’d be kind of a big red flag for me.

    I wish you had hell yes!  That’d be my response.  I think it’d be awesome to help him pick out the perfect cover up for the sins of his past (jk), but seriously, it’d have to go and quickly.
