I never said there weren't exceptions and yours sounds much more subtle. Its not like its a billboard to your relationship like others I've seen.

Fair enough.

I guess being subtle (and having absolute certainty in your relationship) is the way to go with a tattoo like this.

In the case you describe, yes, I can absolutely see that as being better or more realistic than plastering the name of a lady across any part of your body. And yet, I'm still a cynic. I have it on good authority that people have said "I do" and intended to be together until death and yet, they're not.

We're special.



But yeah, I know what you're saying, jessica.. The divorce rate is very high.

I got the first two last summer (dragon and bat) I was 66 at the time.

The second two (spider and scorpion) were done this summer.

At two per year, it's a good thing I didn't start when I was younger!!

Probably done...but you never know.

Until death is a very long time (hopefully) but as far as being a bad omen I guess it depends if your a superstitious person or not. I think the problem with today's high divorce rate comes down to not really knowing each other and people always rushing into things. Not saying it wouldn't happen otherwise but I bet not as often. I put my wife's name on a tattoo and 10 years later we're still happily together. Of course we met, dated, and lived together for five years prior.

A guy I know got his girlfriend's name tattooed on his forearm..

Then they broke up.

And he got his next girlfriend's name tattooed over the first girl's name.

Then they broke up.

We no longer speak, so i'm not sure what came of the huge, colorful tattoo of some silly girl's name on his forearm..

Very cool, any significance of the characters? I'm assuming you went to Atlanta for a specific artist?

According to navy stories, tattooing a pig and rooster on you (typically done on your feet) will prevent a sailor from drowning. The first is just that pigs and chickens do not like water, so they would like to be out of the water as soon as possible. There are more detailed stories saying that during a shipwreck, the pig and rooster would be the only ones that survive because their pens floated to shore.

My grandpa was in the navy during WWII and was on a ship hit by a kamikaze. He managed to be part of the small group that survived the wreck. He passed away last year so represents him looking over me to keep me safe.

Cool, thanks for the backstory. I'd never heard of that.

I just got back from getting my third tattoo. After five and a half hours, we decided it would be best to finish it in a second session.
