  • G'day florescentbunny, Thank you for your question. Yes it is for a number reasons: * it will remind your current partner of your former partner when you start a new relationship * secondly, it will be a permanent reminder of the break-up. Regards
  • no not always, if you stay together why would it be a mistake, it would only be a mistake if you break up and not everyone breaks up. i have my partners name tattooed on me and i love it and he loves it.
  • hey if things don't work out you can always get a cover up! I had a name on the back of my neck and my current girlfriend doesnt care for tattoos but it was a great excuse to go get one =-) lol She had no problem with me getting a cover up
  • I personally don't find a tattoo to be a wise choice, especially for a girl/woman. Some are ok, but don't do a name, lord knows where that person will be a year from now, let alone 30 years from now when that tat starts sagging and fading and looking real tired.
  • Everytime I have heard of that the couple always ends up breaking up. Normally it is because they start taking the relationship for granted.
  • Not if you stay together.
  • hell yeah, i mean you might as well brand your ass while your at it.
  • Probably not always, but everyone I know who did ended getting a cover-up tattoo because they broke up.
  • I am not for names in tattoos, though I have had a symbol repesenting a person on me. We broke up, and not the sybol has only it's orginal meaning which was fertility and love.
  • Yes, but then I've never been a fan of tattoos.
  • Not always.
  • it isn't always bad , b/c if you are in love with that person and you know for a fact that they are in love with you, then it is a good way to show your affection for each other. if you find out that y'all aren't in love with each other, then you're pretty much screwed.
  • Not always. I'm sure it's been a mistake for some people, but not for me!
  • I think it's almost bad luck to get your SO's name tattooed on you somewhere. It seems like everyone I've ever known who's gotten a tattoo of someone's name or something has subsequently broken up with that person.
  • I generally don't like the idea of doing anything to myself that makes it easier for the police to identify me. However, "always" is SUCH a strong word...
  • Yes. If you want someone's name on you, put your kid's name on. You will always be together.
  • yeah. i'd never do it, no matter what. but then again, i'm a huge pessimist. i've known people who have gotten their kids' names tattooed on them. THAT is a good idea :)
  • No. Although you many not be together for life, there is still a part of the other person that you have to like. It's a memory, like many tattoos. Even if it is years later, you can laugh about it and maybe even recall some good memories that you forgot about.
  • Not really just cover over it when shit hit the fan
  • No, I do not always think it is a bad thing. It depends on the timing. Getting a name tattooed after 2 months is not a good idea. But my husband had my name tattooed on his chest for our 20th anniversary. Okay after 20 years the marriage might last.
  • I would personally do a symbol that represents your love for each other. Something special between the two of you. But Def not a NAME!!! that is just crazy!
  • yes always...never put a name on your body unless its your Mom,dad or a child.(or Harley Davidson is ok)
  • yes altho i am engaged and we both say we will never break up, it happens and i will not want to live with it forever, if (god fobid) he dies suddenly young i might to have something done in memory of him. alsi when i have children i shall have there name tattoed on me
  • Yes i had 2 one iv covered over and the one on my back im having covered over with a phoenix with will be symbolic :) I will never get a partners name on my body again,not a good idea :)
  • Yes but I am anti-tatoo unless you are talking about rub-on ones :)
  • Well, the divorce rate is 50/50,so yeah, it's dumb. The only names I have are those of my children.
  • It does seem to be the kiss of death
  • Yes, because you never know what could happen between the two of you. If you ever broke up/ got divorced, then you are stuck with that person's name on your body forever...
  • No, but I would wait until you are 50 or 60ish.
  • Say your ex's name was James. If you had his name tattooed on you then were you to only date guys named James then it would be fine. But the probability of always doing that is slim to none. I personally would not get a significant others' name tattooed on me. I would tattoo the name of my god sons and any kids if I have them. I might also get a remembrance tattoo for my grandfather.
  • You should NEVER get a boyfriend or girlfriend's name as a tattoo. You're probably not gonna be together forever. If you've been married for 30 years, maybe it might be safe to do it for an anniversary present or something. It's not that its always a mistake, its just that a million 18 year olds think "Hey, I'm old enough to get one!" and get their bf/gf's name because they're too young to realize they more than likely won't be with them forever. Also, couples who meet and get married within a year, as well as people who marry at an early age (like 19-24 say) and get divorced the next year tend to get tattoos of their significant other. People like this make it seem like a bad idea. A few people in my family and other people I know have their husband/wife's name, and it made a good anniversary gift. People just don't think sometimes.
  • I wouldn't consider it a mistake, as much as a high-risk decision.
  • yes i do.you mat as well get 'property of'above the persons name.plus you can never be sure that the relationship will last.even after thirty years people get divorced.
  • I have my husbands name on my ankle. I got it there for my 18th birthday. I don't regret getting it done, and I would do it again.
  • I don't think it's always a bad idea. And sometimes you break up with someone and stay friends and had fun with them and wouldn't mind remembering them. But, I would wait till you've been together like 10 15 years first. lol. And I'd always talk it over with my partener. I've found through talking to people I know that tattoo's don't always make a great surprise.
  • yes. something always goes wrong
  • No, I'm married, and I have tatoos. Yes, I would get his name, becuz it's til death do us part, so when I part, I'll have his name on me...so he can find me when he departs, lol:)
  • yeh id never get another half name my dad did that and hes got like 8 different names on him so thats 7 cover ups ive got my parents names on my back cuz my parents will always be my parents and when i have kids i will have their names cuz they will always be my kids no matter what happens
  • YES IT IS...BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW...WHEN YOU HAVE UPS AND DOWNS IN A REALTIONSHIP...SO ITS BETTER TO JUST NOT GETT A PERMANANT MARK OF A RELATIONSHIP...UNLESS U KNO 4 SURE ITS TRUE LOVE..AND ITLL LAST FOREVER!
  • Always, 100% wrong bad terrible. I personally think it's the kiss of death. But I mean, whatever floats your boat.
  • Depends when and how you do it.
  • I would say so.
  • Yes, you can never be 100% sure of anything these days
  • I do because you can't get ride of it and that is one way of always remembering the break up. now if you have a son and your son is a jr, then put your child's name on you. because he might not always be there but your child will always be your.
  • it can always be covered up if ya'll were to break up =)
  • Maybe not always, but it certainly is if the relationship goes south. I never really had the desire to have my ex-husband's name tattooed on me, and I'm certainly glad I did not. I don't plan to have my SO's name inked on me either, and he's fine with that, but I have thought a lot about getting our son's name. For now I'd just stick with images of things I find appealing or meaningful, which I would probably never later come to hate.
  • No. Its all about how much you love that person and how commited you are to them. I got my boyfriends name tattoo'd on the small of my back and i will never regret it. He is my one and only love forever, do or die, and i shall never love another. No matter where the future goes, i shall always and forever only love him. And i mean that 100% with every fiber of my being, all my heart and soul forever, in this life and everything that comes after. So really the question you need to ask yourself is this. Do you commit yourself to your partner forever? If you can answer that 100% without hesitation, then go for it. I will NEVER cover or remove mine. I've got my true one and only. =)
  • 99.9999999999% of the time, yes! You never know when your relationship with that person will fall apart, and then you won't have any way to get the name of the person who broke your heart off your body.
