I would HAVE to question her judgement - and would have a hard time overlooking not just the tattoo, but the poor judgement that led her to believe that getting it was a good - or even acceptable - idea. That is dumb on an EPIC scale (and many guys have made exactly the same mistake, and are walking around with an ex's name on them).
She would have to convince me that she KNEW how stupid that decision was, and that she'd grown and matured and found wisdom through her mistake. Only then could I find respect for her.2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I'm not sure I'd care. It might be a reminder of the bad moments not just the good for them. Sometimes people can't afford to have the tattoo removed, or covered over or have another reason for not getting it done. It might not have anything to do with any caring or love for the person with the tattoo.
Then there is something very different. Keeping a tattoo because the person died in memory of them. They genuinely cared for them and lost them. I don't think there is anything wrong with that. I think if people overly fixate on that situation that they are generating their own relationship issues. Unless the person with the tattoo is bring up and comparing the person the tattoo is about a lot to the person they are now with.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
