When we first started dating I didn't mind it too much, I guess because honestly I didn't think I would make it this far. But as we started to progress in our relationship I started thinking about our future together and I don't want to grow old with someone like that. What do I do? I love him and don't want to break up.
You don't want to grow old with "someone like that" , yet you state you love him. Tattoos are an individual thing and a form of expression and they can also be addictive. I could not nor want to explain to someone why I have tattoos and what they mean. They are on my body and they mean something to me, that is all that matters. If you love him then that means loving what makes him,him.
