There really isn't an option on here that expresses my thoughts, nor is there an "other" option.

Basically, the language of the name shouldn't matter. Some people think it's much cooler to get things written in other languages. If my guy had my name on Chinese on his body, and I wanted his name on mine, if I felt like getting it in English, I would regardless of how mine was written on his.

It isn't any less sentimental just because it's in another language, and it isn't meant to offend you or anyone else because it's written that way.

You have to take the SAME precaution as anyone else getting a name on them, the risk that something COULD happen and go wrong, but that doesn't mean that it will. I plan to get my guy's name on me, but I know he won't ever get mine on him.

It all up to you how you feel about it. Ask yourself if you were to break up would it bother you that his name was there?

Personally, I will never put anyone's name on my body. Not even my children, and there is nobody in the world I love more than them. Simply because I think it's tacky. My own opinion, but for me, I find it to be tacky.

If you want to give a tribute, by all means, get something that is symbolic of him, and put thought into it. I have a Chinese dragon wrapped around a yin-yang on my ankle, that is a tribute to the death of my father and my step mother. To me, it's much more beautiful than just their names would be, it has the same symbolism to me, but is much less tacky looking.

I wish i could've picked 'bad idea' and 'it's your body'. Personally i think it's a bad idea, i wouldn't do it. But it is your body and if thats what your really want to do then just make sure you really think it through first! You don't need his name on your body to tell him you love him.

Do you (and your husband) have a Chinese name?

My biggest pet peeve is people who want names "translated" in other languages. Names aren't exactly well translated across languages.

It's totally up to you whether you want to have your partner's name tattooed on your body. Something as small as what language it's in seems a bit frivolous in the long run, does it not? Yes, you two won't have matching tattoos but the sentiment is still there, is it not? You shouldn't do anything you aren't comfortable with, especially when it comes to something this permanent.

It is often the kiss of death, but if you want it, do it. Just make sure you really love your SO.

Never ever ever put someone's name on your body, or anything you'll regret. You never know if it will last or not, and then you're branded until you can have it removed.

I didn't vote, because I have an other. How long have you been with him, is it ever on and off? Do you have kids together? do you know, without a doubt, that this will work out forever?

I have been against it for a long time, and only recently thought about getting my husband's name on me We have been together since we were 14 and 15, and we are 22 and 23 now. We have been together almost 8 years, and married now for 8 mths. I know there will be no one else, no matter what, so I have started considering it.

If you're slightly unsure, but still want to do it, I'd do yours in Chinese as well. Then your tattoos have a matching quality as well, but you're not SO committed to the name tattoo.

I think it's stupid to do overall. I have one name, it's my best friend. He has my name tattooed on him. We did it to forever remember each other.

Personally, I would get symbols instead of people's names tattooed on me. But in the end, it's your decision, to what you are most comfortable with. As for languages, it is again your choice. I vote a language you are familiar with, but that's just a personal opinion.

I'd say this is a bad idea. Relationships end. Even if you think you're happy now, something could happen. Just imagine how awkward things would be if things ended and you had that tattoo.

I have my husband's initials on my forearm inside of an anchored heart. I don't care what anyone says, I didn't get the tattoo thinking "what if something happens?" Too many people worry about that and it's sad that they even have to.
I'm secure enough to know that there is no regret or what if's. I love my husband. He's the father to my two beautiful children. I've never believed in divorce and he doesn't either.
A tattoo is a symbol of what YOU feel or who you are. It's really nobody's business.

My first thought is bad idea, however my wife always says that if you ever divorced me you would have been such a good part of my life that id never want to forget you. So I guess to each their own.

I think it's the ultimate expression to say that you are your lover's, in a symbolic way. I think it's so sweet and such a loving gesture and really, it is quite a testament to your love.

I think it depends on your relationship. My husband has my name on him, I have Property of Potter tattooed on me.

bad idea, but it's your decision, since it is your body!

Your body, your decision. (Still a bad idea)

If you want to and it feels right to you, do it.
I personally don't think I ever would.. but that doesn't mean it's "wrong"

Bad idea generally. I think getting someone's initials embedded in a larger design so it's subtle and can't really be noticed by others would be cool though.

I have hubbys name tattooed on me. Very personal place, easily covered but very meaningful.

It's your body and your choice. I would be a little wary about the idea of getting one specifically because he has one, and holding up the language as a measuring stick of who is showing the most commitment with the tattoo. Get it if it's something that -you- want.

Its your choice, but i dont think you should, because for some weird reason you guys ever break up its there forever.

Your body, your choice - but make sure you'll be okay with it if you break up or be ready with a cover-up idea.

When I get a tattoo, it's for life. So if I ever got a name on me, it would have to be one I'd be okay with even if the relationship went completely sour or whatnot.

I've always considered it a bad idea.
