Tattoos have existed since the days of our great grand parents, and they were not only meant for fashion, but also were a part of our culture (so to speak)
It has been revolutionalized in our days, with more colours, and modern designs. Adults have also yielded to this revolution as many now have tattoos drawn in various parts of their bodies – some permanent, others temporary.
Tattoos have also been used as a symbol to show love to one’s partner. Many prefer to tattoo their partner’s names on their body. Some do it in very private areas, and even make it permanent. Of course, the danger in this is when things no longer work out between the two of them. What becomes of the permanent tattoo you have in that private part of your body? How will your next partner react to having to see the memory of your ex each time he sees that tattoo?
To be clear, I will say it was a bad decision from the beginning. Inking your partner’s name on your body shouldn’t have been a consideration or discussion (shouldn’t even be at all) until a marriage license was signed and you’d both put a few years into the marriage. Even then, it’s kind
of crazy, but if both spouses are
onboard? So be it. But marking
yourself permanently without so much
as a ring doesn’t even make sense.
You can’t commit to forever with a partner, but you’re willing to commit to a lasting reminder of the relationship on your body? Where, oh where, do they do this at?
A woman once remarked that her tattoo artist once told her that she hated doing art with significant others’ names. Why?
“Most of them end up being covered
up,” the artist said.
This situation also tells me a lot about
your relationship. You’re all in and see
this as forever ever. Your partner is
around for the time being. The
communication is also off. You both
agreed to do something; he didn’t hold up his end of the deal. Instead of
telling you, “Hey, I’m uncomfortable
with this,” he went ahead and did
what was best for him and filled you in
on the back end. That is not OK. Now, you have to live with that guilt (or shame) for as long as your body remains. It could even be a catalyst to why subsequent relationships may not work for you.
So, if you are out there, very much in love with your partner, and considering drawing a tattoo, remember that a relationship may expire, a permanent tattoo remains.
