    I picked other – I would only tattoo his name/initials if he passed away while we were still together. (heaven forbid)

    We have coordinating tattoos already in memory of his mom.

    I have a symbolic tattoo. I’m trying to convince him to get one that is somewhat matching. However, heaven forbid we were to divorce, my tattoo easily can stand on it’s own without the symbolism.

    Hm.  Darling Husband and I do not have tattoos personally (nor do we plan to get them).  But if the question is, would I put him forever on my body if I was into that sort of thing, then- sure why not.  I am comfortable with our lifelong commitment, I just am not personally a tattoo person.

    Plus, he doesn’t really like his name :/

    We have the same initials, so maybe something like that. But probably not. I would rather us get something matching rather than our names if we were to get tattoos.

    I currently have no tattoos.. my SO has one of a panther.  I used to think that I’d get my hubby’s name put somewhere whenever I got married… but now I’m thinking more along the lines of getting something symbolic.  Maybe both of us could get a tattoo of our wedding date in Chinese or something… not sure.  I’ll discuss it with the SO at some point… AFTER we’re engaged, LoL.

    I don’t agree with getting their name tattooed on yourself bc i belive then you are doomed for it to end. but i did see the neatest thing the other day, a couple got the day they got married in roman numerials tattooed on them. now i would probably do that!!

    i would never get a tattoo, EVER.  and even if i would, i would not get one with my husband’s name on it.  i just think they’re tacky.  my cousin has her husband’s name tattoed on her, and i don’t like it (i also really don’t like her husband, but that’s a different story)  if i absolutley HAD to get a tattoo with a name, i would get my future children’s names tattoted on me, but personally, i will never get a tattoo.

    Reminds me of a joke by Drake Sather. "I can see marrying a girl, having a few kids. But a tattoo?  It’s so permanent…"

    I would absolutely get a tattoo for my husband, but not of his name or initials.. I’ve never seen a name tattoo that I liked. He doesn’t really care for tats much, though, so I’ll just have to get one for myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My SO’s initials are JB and when written in cursive they can look like butterfly wings. I would consider getting a small tattoo of this after we got married. I know it’s cliche, but to others it will always just be a butterfly, and to me they’ll be something more. Also, I’m very much a learner from previous relationships, so even if it didn’t work out, I would be okay with my decision to have that inked on me forever because my experiences and memories will be just as permanent as any mark on my body will be.

    FI’s arms and shoulders are covered with tattoos and I have a couple as well, but we’ve discussed the name thing and we won’t be doing it anytime soon. Fiance always jokes how after we’ve been married for 10 years he’ll tattoo “property of mrs.peters.to.be” on his butt, which I think is pretty funny. lol.

    After the wedding we will be getting symbolic tattoos, but I think that it’s a little different because it’s more private if the reason behind the tattoo isn’t obvious. I already have a pair of traditional sparrows on my one hip so I am going to add a heart pad lock and key next to that! We’ve both discussed it and have agreed that even if the future if things didn’t work out we’d still have a reminder of when times were good ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s hope we get all old and wrinkly with our tattoos together though ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Absolutely not, but I don’t have any tattoos, neither does my SO
