Number one tattoo 'don't'. Any professional tattoo artist will tell you that one of the number one things to avoid when thinking about a tattoo is getting your partner's name. Why? They know you'll regret it. They've seen it before and they try to warn you before you make the mistake.
Alternatives. If you have been together for years and you remain in love and supremely dedicated to one another, you can still show your love with tattoos. Getting the person's name may not be a good idea, but there are other ways you can show your commitment. Get a tattoo that's more of a design or a symbol of your relationship.
Why do it? Seriously, we want to know! Tattoo artists tell you it's an absolute NO and most people end up regretting it and tattooing over the name. So, why do people still get their partner's name tattooed? This is a tattoo trend that is just bewildering.
Funny, but no. Granted, some of these are pretty hilarious. If you have a sense of humor, we suppose it's not the worst thing in the world. Your next partner may not find it so funny, though.
Cover ups. If you do find yourself in the position where you want to scratch out your ex's name, go for a cover up tattoo. Cover ups can be difficult so you have to make sure you get a solid artist and that you're willing to go for a larger tattoo, but it'll end up looking better than this.
Tell us how you really feel. Or, you could go this route and brand yourself all over again. Maybe this is a part of your life story that you want to tell. Just know that you won't get a lot of job offers with this one.
Yes, yes you have. This tattoo speaks for itself and for all the other tattoos on this list. There are classy ways to show your affection for your significant other, and there are trashy ways. There are also psychologically f***ed up ways, as we saw with Leigh and "Wibbo." Choose wisely.
