Getting his name Tattooed??

IslandGoddess IslandGoddess
My boyfriend and i have been together almost 3years, Sep 9th will be our anniversary and i was thinking of getting a small wrist tattoo saying "Je T'aime" which means i love you in french, but recently ive been thinking of getting "Je t'aime (his name)". During the first year of our relationship i drew a small tattoo of his name on my breast and took a picture and sent it to him. He was very happy and excited because it looked so realistic. We have talked about it before and joked around about it but never took it seriously until lately ive been thinking about it alot! He is my first love, in my eyes he took my virginity because the person who i had "sex" with for the first time wasnt consensual. So he really means alot to me, he made me feel comfortable enough to get out of my shell that ive been hiding in for years before i met him. I am deeply inlove with him . People think im crazy because im only 19 and im so "inlove" and i only keep focus on school and him, im very committed to him, ive never cheated. He's getting his appartment soon and we are thinking about moving in together. We have even talked about marriage in the next 2-3 years and he is constatly talking about me having his child, but ive told him im not ready for that as yet i want to finish school, get my career on track and have my house and money situation set straight before i have kids. Anyway i was think it would be a great supprise and a great present for him.

P.S.... I thought about the "What ifs". What if he doesnt like it, what if we break up for good. Well if we do break up in the future i think i would still keep the tattoo because it means something to me, and if i meet somebody else in the future i will tell them about it, and if they have an issue with it then thats on them. But if for some reason i start having regrets i will make the tattoo artist put it in a way where ill be able to get a cover up or somthing different over it, i doubt i will. But just incase.

What do you think?

I wouldn't do it. Not only do I find it tacky, but you never know what the future will bring, even though right now you "know" you will be together forever. But I am not very romantic or sentimental, and the thought of having an ex boyfriend's name tattooed on me makes me want to hurl.

It's not something I would do, even if I were with a person for my entire life.

What if, 10 years from now, you have a really, really bad breakup? You'd want to remember that for the rest of your life?

Honestly, I'm not as anti-name tattoo as some but I wouldn't do it quite yet if I were you. I considered it for a guy I was dating at your age (and I believed I'd be with that guy forever - I was wrong) and it would've turned out to be a mistake.

I have my now ex-husband's name tattooed on me. It's tiny and easy to cover up and I honestly don't regret it but that's because I married him before I did it and we had committed in a church and all that stuff... It's on my lower back and only 2" long so it's easy to cover, but it's in a good tattoo spot and I haven't decided what to put over it yet so right now when I bend over people just ask who Robby is

My opinion - if you're going to do it, do it with a ring on your finger (not that marriage means permanant stability, but it's closer than dating), and small enough (to cover should it not work out) and in a fairly inconspicuous spot where you don't have to see it everyday.

i was thinkin of gettin it on my wrist and im a very fashionable person and i LOVE to wear accessories and i always wear bracelets with all my outfits so a bracelet/watch would cover it up. Thats how small i will get it but i will take your advice and wait a little longer. Im still going to get the "Je T'aime" Because originally i planned on getting it so i could remind myself that "i love you", meaning i LOVE myself. I've had lots of issues with loving myself and tryig to find myself in the past so i wanted to get a small tattoo that reminds me to love myself. But Lately ive been thinking of adding my boyfriends name because our anniversary is coming up. Im starting to have doubts now. Because its true im very young and as my mother always says ill meet a boy in college who ill fall head over heels for and forget about my current boyfriend.

There is kind of a curse. Don't get Bands or Peoples names tattooed on you unless they are related to you by blood or dead. Even if you're related sometimes you can have a bad falling out.

Beware!

I've always said the same thing about getting someone's name tattooed. (Blood relatives names only)

My wife wants one in tribute to her father who passed 14 years ago.

Tattoos are a personal choice, and getting someone's name put on your body is something that you alone will have to decide in the end. I have been with my boyfriend for 10 months, and I am having his name tattooed on me, but the thing you want to consider is how easy it may be to cover up. We all feel that we are with "the one", I was with my highschool sweetheart and married him, we lasted 6 years, but in 2 days, we will be divorced. Luckily, I never got his name tattooed on me, but you have to consider that no matter how long you are with someone or how well things may be going at the time, there is always a possibility that something could go wrong in the future.

Make sure that it is in a location that can be covered up, for example I am getting a design with stars, and some stars will be colored in, some will be empty, his name will be in an empty star, and should I ever need to, despite the fact that I see him as "the one", I would like the OPTION of being able to fill that star in over his name and cover it up. Make sure you leave that option open That way, no matter what, you will never have any regrets!

I'm really not one for getting a significant other's name as a tattoo, but this idea with the stars is SO clever!

And I would just go with the "je t'aime" for now and wait a little bit for his name. Besides, adding something to a tattoo that you've had for a while always feels more exciting than getting the tattoo in the first place, imo.

I wouldn't do it, and I have been married over two decades and plan on 3 or more decades. However, you never know where life will take you. I wouldn't want a permanent tattoo if things should go awry.

I wouldn't.
You never know what could happen. And name tattoos just look bad to me.

Honestly, I was with my ex for four years, and she left me. I would not bother, a tattoo is something personal, not really something to be had for someone else.

There is an unwritten rule about names of significant others being tattooed and it is DON'T DO IT. I understand you love him and he is your everything and you are never going to break up, but really, we have all been there and all said that about an ex at some point in our lives.

If you are that set on getting a tattoo for him, get a symbol or something that means something to the 2 of you. Something that is not so in your face if you break up and are with someone else. I am sure if you were to be in bed with Jack he would not like looking at Freds name permanently on your skin

There is a tacky factor in there also. The only name that is on my body is my daughter, and that is the way it will always be.
