Tattoos Professing Your Love: Do or Don’t?

A few weeks ago a coworker celebrated her wedding anniversary by surprising her husband with a tattoo of his name on her wrist. I thought it was such a special gift. The tattoo was done beautifully – it was small, dainty, and in a whimsical, cursive. She said her hubbie smiled from ear to ear when she revealed the surprise.

Although I love the idea of my coworker’s anniversary gift, I’m not sure if that’s something I could ever do. I’ve admired other people’s tattoos and there are definitely beautiful ones out there, but it’s something that I’ve never felt was my style. One thing I always think about when the idea of a tattoo enters my mind is how it would look when I’m 70. Um, probably not so cute…

I did a bit of research for some love-themed tattoos to either give you inspiration for your own or to admire from afar.

    It’s weird because I’m not a big fan of tattoos AT ALL and tattooing someone’s name on your body is pretty high on my list Stupidest Things People Can Do list but that being said, I guess I usually think of young, naive lovers who think their current bf/gf will surely be their one and only, forever and ever. Ha! Cue a call to the tattoo removal place 10 years later.

    YET, as a present for your husband, it kinda works. It doesn’t seem silly when you’re in a more committed relationship. I can see the beauty and intimacy of it. I get it. I’m thinking I should get a little X tattoo somewhere. Of course I won’t, but it’d be nice and he’d love it.
