We’ve all seen that girl that has her man’s name tattooed on her neck in script. You think, what the hell was she thinking? Probably what I was thinking when getting inked. I had an exes name tattooed on my wrist along with his “street name” on my ring finger.
Yes, that’s right – he had a street name. And it just so happened to be”Dirty.” I walked around with “Dirty” tattooed on my ring finger for years. Go ahead and laugh!
At the time, I felt it was a good idea, and other women feel the same when putting a guy’s name on her body for display. Here are some common reasons why women choose to get a name tattoo.
It’s a sign you will be together forever.
Tattoos are forever. While you can wear clothing to hide the ink or apply makeup to cover it up, underneath it all his name remains a part of you.
You get my name tattooed and I will get yours.
We are territorial creatures and believe this gives us an advantage over the competition. Also, it’s a commitment that you are both making. If he gets your name tattooed, you feel secure in your relationship; therefore you’re more inclined to get one with his name.
You are proving your love during a difficult time in your relationship.
This sounds crazy, right? It happens everyday. A woman is in a bad relationship and wants to show her man how much she loves him. So she gets his name tattooed on her boob.
If you’re getting his name tattooed, do so for the right reasons. Unless you have the money or the threshold for pain to endure tattoo removal, he will remain a part of you (and your body) for the rest of your life.
