Is This Really a Bad Idea?

Okay, so I went into a local tattoo shop today and was wanting to get a tattoo of my soon to be wife's name.. nothing huge.. and very hidden.. i picked out what i wanted as the font and everything goes.. size ext .. and was in there about 30 minutes.. ive never had a tattoo before but i have been thinking about this one for quite some time and im not stupid.. i know what it is ill be getting and i dont feel bad about it at all.. but everyone in the shop acted like it was the biggest curse and the worst idea ever.. they were all telling stories about people and what had happened..

I ended up walking out of there with my feelings hurt because i would never want anything like that to happen..

I don't know what to do now
Whaaat the heeellllll

I guess think it over some more? I dont know

if youre looking for opinions, heres mine...dont do it.
Go for something that you guys share if you really want to get a meaningful tat. Maybe a saying, or a picture of something. My wife and I have matching tats with a phrase we love. When I see it I am reminded of her as well as what the phrase means to me.

This way in case anything does happen years down the road (who can really say), you'll have something still meaningful to you, but no matter what it'll remind you of her.

i agree, don't get someone else's name inked on you. it's the K.O.D of any relationship, i swear. the only names that i've got? are for 2 ppl who died that were very close to me.


i mean like homie said above me, do something meaningful to you guys. maybe the date of your marriage? something like that.

hahaha, cause it is man! i don't think anyone's trying to hate on you or your fiance(right? you said soon to be, so) directly.. its just bad things happen when doing tattoos like this, haha, than you're paying to either have it covered up or removed.

do something you can live with for the rest of your life, ya know? hah.

yeah I gotta say I agree with everyone else. DO something meaningful that in 60 or 70 years from now when you're really old, you can still enjoy it (if that's even possible) no matter what happens.

yeah well there's that...I highly doubt I'd ever be getting a tattoo.

yea i never was a big fan of tattoos and piercings ext... but this has been growing on me for quite some time... thanks everybody for the opinions.. i think i shouldn't get it now.. .. if i was a total dumb ass i would have said.. yea ill take it anyways. but i have enough balls to say.. yea.. you have a point.. ill wait and see..ya know?

who knows.. maybe ill get it a another year down the road.. well see.. but for the time being.. i agree with my fellow your cobalt friends.. skip the tattoo..

I know what i can do thats more fun then getting poked to death with a needle under my belt line... ANYthing else lol

the reason i brought my question about this on here.. is simply.. you guys dont know my family..therefore they wont find out .. and i wont have to listen to.I CANT BELIEVE blah blah blah blah blah haha!
we all know how that is.. plus inlaws. everybody hates them..
