    I wouldn’t get initials, but I’d absolutely get something that represents him and our relationship. I just don’t like the idea of a name on my body.. not just his, but anyones.

    I eventually want to get a tattoo that maps the way the solar system was aligned the night I met my husband ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not initials or names no.  Maybe something symbolic – maybe.  I just somewhat am superstitious about getting a tattoo that personal and then us breaking up (I do have tattoos by the way – four).   When we went to get tattoos one time a man was there with his wife.  She had gotten his name on her leg when he was away on business.  He had brought her to get it changed to their son’s name because he told her it was bad luck for the relationship and he loved her too much to lose her.

    I currently have my psycho ex’s name tattooed on my lower back.  Not only is it his name, but he wanted to be possessive, so it says, “Dusty’s.”  I know, I know….lol.  My name is down his forearm.  We both got them 3 months into our relationship.  WTH was I thinking?  I wonder what my current man thinks every time he sees my ex’s name, but I don’t like to bring that subject up.  Sometimes I think about putting my new guy’s name somewhere, but then I talk myself out of it.  You’d think I would’ve learned my lesson by now.  But I do love the concept, and I love tattoos.

    I have four tattoos and want more, but will never put names or initials permantley on my body.  It was one thing that I told myself when I got my first one and I will continue to stand by.  I can just see the artist screwing up and spelling it wrong or something just not working out with the guy you were madly in love with when you were 18 and two months later wondering what you saw in him and than having his name permantley on your body.

    I chose “Other” because I was thinking along the lines of DecemberBride’s comment.  My Fiance has tattoos, and while I don’t have any, I really would love to get something that symbolizes our relationship or represents my Fiance in specific.  I have a ton of ideas in my head (and I’ve had them for years), it’s just refining them…and mustering up the courage to actually do it…  Haha

    I don’t think my Fiance will, but I was thinking I’d get the symbol of what our last name means as well. I’m going to be a Khan, which means king, so I thought I might get a little crown on me somewhere. We’re also planning on getting our wedding date tattooed as 19 (5+14) since the number is already special to us.

    I would never tattoo his name or initials. My dad had this sort of tattoo for my mom, and had to get it removed after they divorced. He now has a nice scar instead of a tattoo.

    If you’re going to do it, I suggest having his name tattooed inside a heart or other cute shape that you can have filled in if necessary. I knew a girl once who did this. Cynical, yes, but also pretty smart…

    I am unsure if I would do this. However, I have decided that I might get his last name done. We already have a child together and plan on having more. So it would not just be his last name but my childrens. If it were to not work, I would end up adding all of their (childrens) names to it.

    @pinkrokker:  that’s a great idea I had never thought of before!  My ex’s name is about 6 inches long across my lower back and it’s directly above a bigger tribal tattoo.  I’m not sure how good a big, black heart would look like above that, but it’s an interesting thought, lol.  I had always thought of just getting someone to do a black line right through his name and then putting my new guy’s name above that…..but God forbid I turn out with a bunch of crossed out names up and down my back, lol.  *shudder*

    I’m a firm beleiver that the only names/initials one should get tattooed on them are blood relatives like children.
