Getting a name tattooed on your body is a serious matter. Some people want their family name, others are parents looking to pay honor to their children. Whereas other people want to immortalize their love for their partner, their parent or even their dog. Whatever reason you want to ink a name on you consider this: it is harder to divorce your tattoo than it is a spouse. (It may even cost more and be more painful too!). But if you’re set on getting a name inked, remember it truly is “’till death do us part”.
Some people think it’s a jinx to get name tattoos – and while I’m not superstitious, there seems to be a funny correlation with name tattoos and subsequent romantic break-ups soon after. Coincidence? Perhaps. But if I was you, I would seriously consider the reason why you are getting a name tattoo in the first place – just in case this superstition has some truth to it.
The only exceptions to this rule of name tattoos is this: it’s perfectly alright to pay homage to the dearly departed, your parents and your children – because they will be with you for life. So if you are looking to get someone’s name tattooed on you, I’ve dug around and found 50 unique name tattoos that I think are perfect for: to honor children, parents and your husband/wife.
