Significant Other Name Tattoos – Good Idea or Disaster Waiting to Happen?

Did you and your significant other pledge your undying love to each other and want to get new ink with one another’s name? Wanting to show your significant other how much you love them by getting their name tattooed on you? You may have promised to love each other forever, but sometimes our plans don’t work out the way we want them to. Before you make that permanent decision, lets discuss some of the outcomes.

Ask any tattoo artist, what is the most regretted tattoo you come across, and it’s a guarantee they will say, “names”. Too many times you hear in the tattoo parlor, “If you love me, get my name tattooed on you <3”

First, getting a significant other name tattoo is a temporary excitement—the name will only stand out when a new person sees your tattoo. Secondly, getting a name tattoo will not make you care more about the other person more than you already do. Third, a tattoo is more permanent than marriage! When you marry someone if it doesn’t work out, you can get a divorce, however, if you decide to remove the tattoo via laser or cover it up, it will always have a trace on your body. Need more of a reason not to get a significant other name tattoo? Ariana Grande, Eminem, Pete Davidson, Kylie Jenner, Angelina Jolie, etc., have had to get names removed from there body, ranging from a few months to a few years after getting the tattoo.

If you must prove your love through a tattoo, let us be the first to tell you, that is not true love. Love is shown through actions, not statements. A tattoo is no more of a commitment than getting matching jewelry with one another’s initials. If you have a strong desire is to get new ink  with or for your significant other, a good compromise can be a symbol that means something to your other half.
