Don’t get us wrong, we’re a tattoo studio; we’re all or tattoos… but sometimes you need to think about what you’re getting.
Should I get my partner’s name tattooed?
Simple as that. No, don’t do it, don’t ever, no, no, no.
Now, we’re not saying that the person you are with is going to break up with you, but there’s always that possibility.
No matter, how in love you are now, you don’t know what will happen in the future, and ask anyone who’s been around for a bit, no relationship is guaranteed.
This advice applies to everyone, but especially if you’re under 25. Statistically, if you’re under 25, you will be with someone different 10 years from now, so having your ex’s name on your arm might be problematic.
You can love someone and be committed to them without having to get a tattoo. Not getting someone’s name doesn’t make you love them less, it just might help your future self. And don’t always assume that the object of your desires wants you to get a tattoo of their name. They might be freaked out by the idea!
There is an exception to the rule
There is one exception to the rule when getting someone’s name tattooed on you - a tattoo in memory of someone special in your life who has passed away.
It's very unlikely you'd have any reason to change your feelings about them once they're gone, and it’s a loving way to show that you will not forget someone from your past.
The only people still alive you don’t have to worry about are your children. You will always love them no matter what and getting a tattoo with their names is a great way to show how much you care.
Just think carefully before getting someone’s name tattooed on you. Tattoo removal is complex and painful - just like love!
