    never tattoo the name of a gf or bf, not even a husband or wife.... no relationship is every guaranteed to last

    the only names i've ever get tattooed are my children's names but even then i might not t be honest, you don't need a tatt to show you love your kids (by the way i don't have any kids, this is just my opinion)
    'No relationship is ever guaranteed to last?'

    You're optimistic aren't you? You must have had some pretty failed relationships.

    I wouldn't do it, it's stupid and causes problems, as you've mentioned.

    No, never. I can't imagine me getting a tattoo full stop actually, but a partner's name is just stupid. Say you do stay together forever, what does that tattoo mean that a wedding ring doesn't? And lets be honest, chances are you'll probably break up and then you'll either have to spend a lot of money having it changed/removed or you'll just have to try and hide it from future partners!

    no I'd never get a tattoo of anybody's name on me. I'd never get a tattoo at ALL. I want to remain as nature intended me thanks (with my ears pierced and dyed hair haha. Yeh hypocrite lol. But seriously, the hair dye isn't forever, and even ear holes heal up if you leave them. A tattoo is pretty permanent unless you've got thousands of pounds to remove it, which I don't. I'm far too fickle about appearance to want something like a tattoo. I'd get it, then regret it).

    I guess a guy could get "Mrs X" tattooed on himself :awesome:

    E.g. Mrs Smith

    Then it refers to his current wife and any future wives - it's foolproof!

    my mummy's girlfriend has karen (her ex) written in huge letters on her leg.

    she's now modifying it to say sharon (mummy's name).

    STUPID IDEA.

    Having ANY tattoo is a tragic decision. But that of a partner's name is the ultimate disaster.

    I know someone who is happily married with children. He has all of his children's name tattooed on him (sad, I know), but not his wife's. When I asked why he said, "they'll always be my children, but she might not always be my wife"..

    I like tattoos though in the sense that they point out people who are pretty sad.

    I don't think I'd do it. Tattoos are all really awful, not just people's names.

    I'd never get a boyfriends/girlfriends name tattooed on me. I do have my best friends's initial tattooed on me though.

    No, it isn't. It's just that you're tattooed so you won't agree, but it's far from "ignorant".

    Never, even though he's the love of my life. But I don't want tattoos in general, so...

    Tattooing ANYONE's name onto your body is a really, really bad idea.
    Except for your children's names perhaps, if you have any.
