It seems that there are two camps when it comes to incorporating someone’s name into your tattoo.
The first camp thinks that it’s a great idea to demonstrate your love for someone and faith that your relationship will last.
The second thinks that it’s a ridiculous idea because they may not always been in your life, you may not always want to demonstrate your relationship with them and your tattoo should be about you, not about someone else.
Now, if you want to have your children’s names tattooed onto your skin, that would seem to be better than having your partner’s name tattooed on. And obviously, if you have recently lost a loved one, having their name tattooed onto your skin might be a lovely tribute to them. As there are so many circumstances, it would be worth taking some time to think as much as you can about the impact of having someone’s name incorporated into your tattoo design.
You should bear in mind that some tattoo artists flat out refuse to do any name tattoo designs. This is not because they don’t value and understand what you are trying to do (though this may be the reason for some!), but because traditionally, this is one of the old school tattoo designs which causes such controversy of opinion. It is the one tattoo which, throughout the tattooing world, is the number one tattoo which people ask to have removed.
If you decide that you want to incorporate someone’s name, it is probably best to go for something small and subtle, with an intrig
uing design surrounding it. Subtlty is usually best in these circumstances, and the pattern surrounded the name(s) will ensure that you can cover the names up if you wish to later on.
Just remember: if you want to do it, you should do it!
