To Ink or not to Ink???

Did you all hear that Kat Von D had a tattoo of Jesse James done before they split up?
She had his fifth grade school picture tattooed on her upper rib cage.. It looks really cool,, but...
Now they've split up!!

It also looks like Leann Rimes has designed a (for now temporary) tattoo for Eddie Cibrian. Again, located on her rib cage. 
It's an excerpt from her wedding vows that reads, "You gave me the courage to be truthful; I promise to give you the comfort to be trustful."

Umm... he cheated on his wife with you!! You cheated on your husband with him, and you're getting a tattoo about courage, truth and trust??

I guess it's nice..

I do think it looks cool.

I'm just wondering what your opinion on this is?

Some of you probably hate tattoos and totally disagree with them, which is fine. But for those of you that do like tattoos, would you ever get your husbands face, name, vows marked permanently on your body?

I've been debating having something done for my girls. It wouldn't be their names, or birth date or anything like that,, just something.
I don't know how I feel about the whole husband/wife tattoo thing though.

It's not that I don't think Peter and I will be together forever. I plan on spending my whole life with him.
I have seen a lot though. No one knows what could happen.
I've seen marriages crumble after 30 years. 

I've seen the strongest marriages crumble.

Then what? Laser Tattoo Removal?? 

I don't know, I just tend to think that my wedding band is enough..

Someone I know says that the only way they would tattoo something of their husband on them, is if he died.. I know,, that sounds horrible, but it also kind of makes sense..

And what would you say if your hubby wanted to have something tattooed on him that represented you?
The funny thing is, I think I'd be happy, I think I'd love it...

Talk about double standards!!! lol (At least I can admit it!)

I really want to hear your opinions on this!!! 

For those of you that do have tattoo's for your husband of children,, what are they? Have you ever regretted them?

Thanks ladies, have a great night.

I have been thinking about this as well. And I recently got a tattoo for my son, its his footprint on my side. As for my fiance/baby daddy, I am not sure I would get a tattoo dedicated for him. I love him. Will always love him (he gave me my son), but I can't imagine having a tattoo on my body forever reminding me of him if things don't work out. It worries me.
IF (and that's a BIG if) I were to get a tattoo dedicated to him, it would be something small, and something easily covered up if things were to go wrong. (we are rocky a lot of days).

I'm not sure what to think. I don't have any but it's just because I'm not really there yet. I think the kids are really cool but the hubs I'd probably leave off. But that's just me!

I have a vine of roses around my ankle & at the last minute, I asked the tattoo guy to add in Hubby's last name. But with a last name like "Love" you can't go wrong!

And I told hubby that he's definitely stuck with me forever.

I already have a tattoo on my lower front pelvis bone. I got it when I was 24. It's something that will always represent me: A rose (love), a red maple leaf (country), and the rose stem is a cross (God).... For God, love and country! I will never regret it since I will always stand for these things.
And I would love something for my kids, but I haven't thought of anything just yet. When I look at them, I think of that Bob Marley song "3 little birds" that would be cool.
Not sure for hubby...I'd rather have something engraved on my wedding band I think.

I sort of think having a portrait tattooed on your body is strange. When Kat Von D looks at her tattoo all she will see is an upside down Jesse AND what happens when she gets older....does Jesse look old and wrinkly or like someone else??? I often think I would like a tattoo for my girls or husband, but then I see a bad one or bad location and I change my mind.

Also, my husband has some really bad stories about tattoos and that really turns me off. The worst story is about a guy who self tattooed MOM on his arm, but he did it so he could read it which meant that when everyone else looked at it it said WOW. Or, a gravestone with RIP that was done by an unsteady hand and looked like a piece of toast. Yikes! lol

when Rob and I were dating a year we decided to get matching tats. We happen to share the same zodiac sign and found one that would look great on Rob's arm and on my hip in any size. I love it cuss it remindes me of him and our one year dating anniversary. I also have a design for my third tat and it has both kids name and Rob and mine in it.. will it get done??? not 100% but i love the look of it :) ha ha.. it is a big deal to get a dudes name on your body ... I dont know...

I have a tat on my upper right shoulder blade. It is a daisy, with a lady bug (to represent me) and different coloured dew drops that represent my boys birthdays, My hubbies, and a puppy I had growing up that I truely miss everyday. When I got mine done, My Hubby did one at the same time over his heart. It has a lion head (he is the Leo) then all our symbols around the head, and our last name under it all. I Love both of them, because they represent our little family. I know that even if something where to happen to us as a couple, I will always love him in some way, and will always be connected to him. He is my first and only love, the father of my beautiful boys, and my best and closest of friends. I always want to have a reminder of that, and so did he. A tat represents a story, and I think that you should never remove it once you get one. I can't wait to add more to mine. As the boys grow and develope their little personalities I want to add things that represent that. I have a couple ideas, just waiting to find an artist out here that I connect with.

BUT, I would NEVER put his NAME on me, that is just me.

I have a tattoo on my ankle it is a sweetpea flower its the girls birth flower, they were both born in april so it worked out. I also put their first initial throughout the vine, I love it and I want another one.

My husband has both of our names in Chinese on his forearm. He loves it. Only close friends and family know what it says.

Anyway to get back to the original question, my first tattoo, is of a skull of a bull. Since I was little I liked bull skulls, it just so happens that my husband's last name is Toro, which means Bull in spanish. I didn't do it thinking about him at the time, but it turned out that way. I also have another tattoo of my daughter's zodiac signs along with mine on my arm. I have a Hupia symbol on my back which is a representation of a Taino symbol regarding the spirits of the dead, it's a little bat and it is after my step-dad died 2 years ago. I also have a portrait of my grandparents when they were in their 30's they are still alive and one is 90 and the other 89, and I wanted them to see it while they still can.
My husband has also a big bull in his back, the same Hupia symbol for my step-dad, my oldest daughter's name in Chinese in his arm, and a flaming ying yang with both our daughter's initials in it.
Recently my mother-in-law passed away and he got her initials tattooed in his wrist.
Regarding whether I would tattoo my husband's name or not in my body, I think that I'm lucky because my husband's name is Jesus so I can safely get a tattoo that said "I Love Jesus" and I wouldn't have a problem with it if God forbid we were to break up. LOL

New friend from Voiceboks! Loving your blog! You can visit me at :)

I have quite a few tattoos, 6 to be exact. All with meaning. Three for my Mum who died 2 years ago. One is her initials, one a pancreatic cancer ribbon (purple) and one a heart with her handwriting of "Mum". The others - One for my Mum and Dad (my first one, a dragon fly), one a replica of my Dad's two tattoos and one for my sister. I would like to get one to represent my daughter Jessica, just not sure what to get yet (right now a little devil would be a good representation.....or maybe a little girl with no ears, since she NEVER uses them). I do not think I would ever get my husband name, but maybe a symbol or picture of some kind, after all he is my child's Dad and we will have a forever link because of her no matter is anything happens to us as a couple.
Tattoo's are such a personal choice and they will be there forever, or a scar from removal will if you go that route after a regretted decision.
I personally love them....each one is where I was at that point in my life.
Life changes as does your taste, so if you do just make sure that you can in 15-20 years still look at it and smile

Thanks all for your input.. I will definitely be getting a tattoo to represent my girls.. I'm thinking a dandelion that looks like it's been blown and coming out of that a little bird and a little dragonfly... Lylah loves birds, and Gracie loves dragonflies.. I feel like I made a wish for them, and my wish came true.. So the dandelion will represent my dreams and wishes,, just like we used to blow on them when we were kids... I will post a pic when I get it done..

I may add something for my hubby, because I do agree that we'll always be joined by our girls no matter what happens.. He will always be a huge huge piece of my puzzle... thanks again ladies..

I don't have any tattoos mainly because I don't like pain. But I wouldn't have my husband (now my ex after 20 years)name or anything tattooed on me.
My daughter, who is 21, has been telling me since she was about 8 or 9 that she wanted a tattoo. Now she has about 5 & she loves Kat von D.
