People who get 'mum' inked on them or someone elses name are pretty shit as well.

I hate to say it, but I asked myself that very same question.

And I bet the tattooist had to get quite close. What if they sprung a leak... or smelled really bad or something?

Why?


Personally I just think it's tacky. I don't understand why you would want to get someones name inked on you. Maybe your kids name or something so you don't forget their names or show how much they mean to you. But there are other ways of doing that. Also people who have been together for like 3months and decide to get each others names tattooed on them..bit stupid really.

i think it's different if it's family, or if it's in memory of somebody.

I agree but even still, if someone I loved passed away I wouldn't immediately think 'right, lets go and get their name inked on my arm' or something like that. There would be other ways to show I cared. Anyway I think this is just going round in circles so I'm going to shhh :)

The only persons name I would get tattooed on myself is probablly someone who is dead, but she was amazing. Maybe my dad too because I'm a daddy's girl. But I think I'd prefer to have some kind of picture or something that I've designed rather than a name.

I'm a bit embarrassed about it to be honest but my best mate has got what she calls a "tribute" to me tattooed on her back.
It's a design not my name and it looks quite cool actually.

So yeah, I'd say there are other ways to show someone how much they mean than just getting their name tattooed on you.


Also, why do people get their own name? I'm not criticising, because it's all each to their own and everything but...I can't quite understand it.

So that if they get hit by a car or are involved in a similar accident the appropriate people will know who they are... OBVIOUS really. :oogle:

guess it depends on the design. and you have to have a cool name too. i mean, i certainly wouldn't get 'dave' tattooed on me. but i might consider getting my initials or something if the design was good enough.

I met a girl at college t'other day who had her sister's name tattooed on her back 'cause she'll always be my sister'.

Just my thinking but if my brother came home (unlikely) and told me he was going to get my name tattooed on him I'd give him a slap and tell him not to be so stupid.

Of course I'll "always be his sister" but he's not likely to forget that.

Equally, I wouldn't want my brothers', mother's or father's name tattooed on me. I kind of take it that I'll remember who they are.

Maybe if you had a memory condition?

I don't know, I feel really bad criticising people's choice of tattoos, but some of them seem so badly thought out and (for want of a better word (because all tattoos are essentially)) pointless.

Yup - got my ex-husband's name when I was 18. Granted, I was kinda pushed into it a little, but all the same.

Covered over now, thankfully!

a guy I work with (sadly) has his own name tattooed on his tricep. He got this done because he kickboxes and has it in case he gets knocked out and can't remember his own name. So he got it tattooed in a place he can't see, yes he's a grade A twathead and he pisses me off.

Thomas nearly everyone at your work pisses you off.

Maybe he's really bendy and can see it?

I hadn't realised that guy from Jackass got himself tattooed on his back...that's special.

It's what happens when you work with people who make you realise how lucky you are to not have a life like theirs. The highlight of every week going to Liquid and paying obscene prices for drinks, ugh.

one of the guys i work with has his name tattoo'd on him. its in big, bold curly old style writing right down the inside of his forearm. it looks fucking stupid. i havent a clue why he had it done.

i doubt id ever have anyones name tattoo'd on me. i might have my kids name or something, but thats still highly unlikely.

It's not a bad tattoo but my friend just got her initial tattooed behind her ear.

I asked why and she said because she liked it.

That's as fair a reason as any.
