I'm not willing to break up with him over this or anything, but I REALLY want a tattoo and I also REALLY want my boyfriend to love every part of my body, tattoo or not. I just don't know what to do.

He still hates the idea of you getting a tattoo, and thinks they are all ugly. That said, it is your body, and he knows he has to support your decision. That doesn't mean he has to like it, and it is his right not to like something. I don't get way people are acting like he is bossing you around, just because he isn't pretending to like the idea.
These are your options.
Get a tattoo and risk forever lower your beauty in his eyes, and force him to lie about how he feels, to avoid fights about it.
Don't get one, and run the risk of holding it against him.
Break up with him and find a more compatible guy.
Do whatever you want, but don't blame him, for any choice you make. He isn't controlling you, he is simply making his preference known. Also remember, relationships are a two way street. Just like you can do what he doesn't like, he is free to do what you don't like.0

I think that you shouldn't give up something you love for someone you love. Get the tattoo. He may not love it, but he won't love you any less.
I'm moderately tattooed and some of the guys I've dated have blatantly said they would rather I didn't have tattoos. It still didn't stop them from dating me.3
