Would you get you gf/bf initials or name tattooed on you?

Do you think its a great way to show commitment? or you'll "jinx" the relationship

  • I know multiple people who have a significant others initials or name on them, all of them are no longer together. I wouldn't get my husbands name or initials because I think it's tacky. Matching tattoos are better, or maybe just a tattoo that reminds you of them.

    I have the smallest matching tattoo with my husband, people always asked what if you break up, if we ever did I would always have a reminder of the man that changed my life and helped me become a better woman and was my first love. Plus, the reasoning behind the tattoo is cute in itself.

  • Fuck no! The only names I'd get tattoo'd on me are my parents and my children. They stay forever.

    A girlfriend, or wife, can leave... and I'm stuck with a reminder of my ex on my body. Fuck that.

  • I don't believe in tattoos. Even if she were the love of my life, I'm not defiling my skin with (possibly diseased) ink just to make a point of it.

    Every character in my literature that has a tattoo winds up being viewed for having it as if they bore some sort of Scarlet Letter. (And a few of them actually deserve the stigma.)

  • Even if I was married, I wouldn't do that. I see it as a form of entrapment.
    Besides getting a tattoo is not going to prove my love any differently.

  • i wouldn't but not because of worrying about a jinx. I just don't think it's all that smart. even marriages can end so of course so can bf/gf relationships. I think you can show you love, affection and dedication to each other in other ways

    Just kidding... probably not a good idea... if you ever break-up then you got an ex gfs initials tattooed on your body. Try splainin that one to your new gf or bf?

  • You don't jinx the relationship you pretty much put it on the edge of a cliff and it could fall over and die or can be saved. My parents almost split when they where dating because my dad got my mom's name over his heart her exact words "you're an idiot I should dump you right now why would you do that it's so stupid" so not a good idea at all or ever to get the significant other tattooed on you

  • No. What if your name is Alexander Raphael Mavericksson. Then your gf would be walking around with the word, ARM on her shoulder and... Well, that could work out for her actually if you broke up.

  • No, NEVER. That is one of the biggest mistakes you can get because what if your break up? It cost more to get rid of a tattoo and I heard it is more painful. I wouldn't even get a tattoo of bf's initials even if we were married.

  • It has nothing to do with jinxing.. but what'll u do if u break up some time? Think twice about it.. u don't wanna regret it, there are other ways to show ur commitment other than tattooing his name on u and showing the world

  • Absolutely not. There's no guarantee that the relationship will be permanent. So if you do break up, which is likely, you'll have a permanent tattoo on you. Removing it more painful and expensive than the tattoo itself, it's also more time consuming. Getting a tattoo done over will also hurt more than the original tattoo and it's not always possible.

  • Personally I never would because unfortunately people can change and someone you're madly in love with now may not be the same person in a few years time! I also have some friends who got their partners initials on them both couples have since broken up! One of my friends is now paying for it to be lazered off the other has had a cover up which is now just like random patterns! There are so many other ways to show someone how you feel! It doesn't have to be that permanent! And this is coming from someone who loves tattoos and has a lot of them!!

  • For some months I've been wanting to get a tattoo with the initials of the 4 most important people and one of those happens to be her but it's not really because we're together. It's because of the impact she had in my life before being in a relationship and for how much she changed me. Being in a relationship has nothing to do with this tattoo but it's obviously something I can't ignore because I'm sure that if we break up, I'll still want the tattoo but you never know...

    Relationships aren't a guarentee forever. I think it's less stupid to get a child's name because regardless what happens, that child is always yours.

  • If I had confidence that we would last then sure. And actually being in love for real. Not what I experienced with my ex though. I know time can tell that, I would need to learn how to actually tell what my heart says, and paying attention to qualities and any red flags. Time and my heart.

  • I wouldn't. If you want to show commitment, give him/her the key to your house or just tell them you love them. If that doesn't work, meet each other's parents. But I wouldn't not get the tattoo because I'm afraid of jinxing it but because I don't believe in such things.

    NEVER GET SOMEONES NAME TATTED ON YOU ESPECIALLY IF ITS A GIRLFRIEND OR A BOYFRIEND BECAUSE BREAKUPS EXIST AND IF THEY DO BREAKUP WITH YOU , YOU WILL BE STUCK WITH THEIR NAME ON YOUR SKIN AS A PAINFUL REMINDER

  • I would never... I'd be too scared if we broke up I'd be stuck with their name on me forever. I know someone who had her husband's name on her chest, then they split up so every morning she would take a sharpie and draw an X over it, which looked very stupid. Now they're back together and she's gotten the tattoo fixed up to look nice again... It just does not look good.

    • No, the fact that they got together is the part that "does not look good". They split up for a reason, why would they get back together. I think they're confused

  • Nope. I don't like tattoos in general. And his name is the same as my dad's anyway, which could get weird after a while if we ever break up...
