I'd think he's crazy and it would make me feel trapped and like he thinks he owns me or some shit. I'd feel pressured to stay with him which is messed up. I would hate the idea of it even if we had been dating for like 10 years and I was still madly in love with him, I wouldn't want him to do it. If you REALLY feel like you need a tattoo to signify your love for her, you could both get small symbols of something you both like tattooed together. Much better than getting a name. You could get a tattoo of your kids name, your parents, or your pets name even, just please not your significant other. Just don't do it. It's such a terrible idea and any decent tattoo artist will refuse to do it anyways. Even getting your wife's name tattooed is risky. Shit happens.
If I were your gf I wouldn't like it and I'd feel trapped because shit happens and people break up and it would get awkward to explain: "Hi, nice to meet you, new girl (I can't think of a name). This? Oh this is the name of my ex and well..."
It's a bad idea. Many people were certain that their partner was for life and got a tattoo of their name, only to split up a few months later. The only names you should put on yourself are those of your parents, your siblings, your pets or your children.
My now fiance did this back in high school. You should talk to her about it first. How long have you been together? For myself , and fiance it meant a lot, but we're tattoo people, and ok with having names on are body's forever because it's are first love. Even if we were to break up. Tattoos to us are our stories so we knew we wouldn't regret it. She could take it as a good , or bad thing. Even though we don't regret anything , and wouldn't I don't think out of high school he would have got a tattoo of my name, because we don't need the extra validation like we did as kids.
She'd probably freak. Tatoos can be very painful depending on where you get it. There is plenty of other ways to show her that you're serious about the relationship. You can get a place together , buy a pet or even get engaged. You could transform it into something but that reminder would always be there.
Dude never tattoo a name on yourself. It's there forever. What if something goes wrong and you guys break up? Then when you go chill with Jasmine you'll still have Stephanie tattooed on you, go explain that one to Jasmine lol
