I want to tattoo her name on me.
am I the last of the Romantic Idiot Poets?
How old are you if you don't mind me asking? I would suggest not getting a tattoo if you are under the age of 30.
Yes!!!! U are bein a fooooool!!! :biggrin1:
I am a romantic idiot poet type too I think but even I wouldn't do THAT!!!!
Can you imagine if u split up????
It would put future women off. It might freak her out....
And anyway unless her names Winona ur not gonna be able to do what Johnny Depp did if it all goes wrong and turn it in2 "Wino forever" are you???
Bad idea dude!! x
declare your love in another, non-permanent way...
over 30, yes.
amber, tell me, what would be your reaction if your man would tattoo your name on his chest? I don't care about possible future women, tell me about you. if you were her, that name on me
If we had been together for a long while and new it was working then maybe I would think it was cool cos I am quite deep...
but jeez the chest!!! Thats sooo devoted and well you can't miss it there can you???
Okay perhaps if you have been together quite a long while and you really know you love each other...especially if you have kids together etc,etc.
Yeh if I had been with someone quite sometime and was really in love I guess I would think it was cool and very romantic....
Couldn't see me ever doin it though...:smile: x
As amazingly romantic as it may be/seem, I still urge you not to do it. I don't think it matters how long you've been together or how in love you are. You never know what the future holds. I believe tattood names should be reserved for two instances. Memorial tattoos and the names of you children-if that. You say you don't care about future women, so forget about them. How are you going to feel if, and I certainly don't wish this, things don't work out and you have to see that tattoo everyday. When your getting ready in the morning, when your changing at night. A reminder of a possibly painful sitution. Of course you could always try to get a decent cover up. Removal is expensive, time consuming and very painful. Again, I wish you both the best but there are much better romantic gestures that can be just as powerful. Really think about this.
thank you barkerfan (and girls), I will meditate on your words.
and I will let you know...
Beware of the Tattoo Breakup Curse, very powerful voodoo. If you're deadset on getting a tattoo for your girlfriend go with something symbolic or representative about your feelings for her and where you are in life right now. If the relationship goes sour you'll have something you can live with, to look back on fondly years from now. At the very least you will never have to explain to your kids why you have 'Annie Mae' on your chest.
A former boyfriend wanted my name tattooed on his body as well (in a heart on his arm). Although the gesture was very flattering I talked him out of it (because I knew he would end the relationship sooner or later).
A friend of mine had the names of his wife and kid on his arm. The letters were almost abstract, like a tribal pattern, going around his upper arm. That would be an acceptable alternative imho.
Romantic Idiot Poet is not the name I would use, :tongue: stupid, impulsive, and moronic do come to mind though.
Are you married?
If not married how long have you been dating?
If you want to prove your love to her why not buy her this. This will be much appreciated. A tattoo not so much.
Do you have children with this woman?
I have a number of tattoo, but would NEVER put a woman's name on my body.
That is the ultimate "jynx" of the tattoo world.
i thought you can remove tattoos now!! =O
I don't think you are an idiot!! or stupid or moronic!!!
The sentiment is there.....you must love her lots...
But Bakerfan raises some really good points.
I would say unless you have been together for quite a long time and have a very solid relationship its a no-no.
At least you really care for her though!! :smile:
Tattoo removal is expensive, time consuming and painful. One should never get a tattoo expecting that they can remove or change it in later years.
How Tattoo Removal Works
Most dermatologic surgeons caution that complete tattoo removal is not possible. Tattoos are meant to be permanent, so removing them is difficult. Few surgeons guarantee complete removal. Having said that, there are several methods of tattoo removal which have proven effective. The degree of remaining color variations or blemishes depends upon several factors, including size, location, the individual's ability to heal, how the tattoo was applied and how long it has been in place. For example, a tattoo applied by a more experienced artist may be easier to remove since the pigment was evenly injected in the same level of the skin. New tattoos may also be more difficult to remove than old ones.
Doctors say they can't predict the exact degree of removal because they generally don't know which of the 100 tattoo inks available today were used. (The U.S. Food and Drug Administration currently lists tattoo pigments as "color additives," which are intended only for application to the top layer of the skin.) Consult with a removal specialist -- be sure to take a list of questions along.
I have a woman's name tattooed on my person...
My own. :biggrin1: (I was fairly sure, even at the tender age of 16, that I would always love me - so far it is working out quite well )
Why not. you can get them covered or removed now. Expensive, but do-able.
I was dating an asshole yrs ago. He was 28, I was 18. He got a HUGE tattoo with my name wrapping around his arm, from wrist to bicep. I got a small facsimile, 2inch by 2inches on my arm with his name in it. Two days after breaking up (we were together for 2yrs) I had his name covered up so well you can't even tell it was a name.
I agree that it is romantic as hell, but unfortunately, we can't tell the future. You don't want something you have on your body permanently to be a regret. If you decide to get it done by a really good artist, it will not be cheap. I don't know what the prices are for tattoo artists in the states, but a really good artist charges $150per hour. So if you want a tattoo across your chest, you are probably looking at a minimum of a 3hr sitting and depending how intricate your design is, you may be paying a lot of money for even more sittings.
If things don't work out, not only are you going to feel and look like an idiot, you will be out the money for the tattoo and whatever it is going to cost for a cover-up or for it to be lasered off.
