It’s your body ultimately you make the decision to get it done! I’m a tattoo lover and my husband is not. I told my husband when we were dating that I will be getting more and although he’s not thrilled he know’s it’s my body. I would never just show up with a new tattoo I will always tell him what I plan on getting done and see how he likes it, but honestly if it’s something I really want and he hates it I’d still get it. He obviously knew you were a tattoo lover all along and it shouldn’t be an issue now, and honestly the whole he’s worried about what his family will think is wrong. It’s your body why should his family even have any input on your body?

Old thread but already bumped by someone else. I would not get a tattoo that SO was unhappy about.

This is something each couple has to decide on. In our marriage, tattoos are something we agree on together. If he is showing displeasure or uncertainty, I think you owe it to him to at least hear out his concerns and address them if possible. In the end it is your body, but… he is more important that a tattoo, isn’t he?

@Lana_Rose: Hmmm…is there a way to discuss it more? Maybe find a different place to put the same tattoo design somewhere else on your body?

Thank you for the replies! As you see from my update a few weeks ago, I DID discuss it further with DH and we agreed to design the tattoo together to make sure he liked it. The outline is done and I actually go back this weekend to have it shaded and the color filled in. It is beautiful, we are both very happy with it and DH has admitted that he finds it totally sexy 😉 as for the in laws, they have seen it but are not saying a word. To each their own.
