would you still get a tattoo if your husband didn't want you to get one?

i have 4 already. he's known for months that i was planning this tattoo out. i think he's uncomfortable with the fact that my artist is male. he's been moping around since i made the appointment and put in $100 deposit. would you give up & lose the deposit or get it anyway?

  • What is the tattoo of and where are you getting it? My husband would be with me if I got one. I have 8 myself and he has been with me for all but 3 and then my brother and his girl friend were with me. If my husband was against it I would have kept my money until he was either okay with it or we came to an agreement on it. You need to figure out what his issue is with it first.

  • hell I'd get it anyways! male or female, it's the artist's job, theres nothing sexual about it. maybe he can come with you? I mean I understand if the tattoo will be on the breast or "down there" since the artist will see mostly everything, but most artists are professional and think nothing of it!

  • i would get it anyway but if he is uncomfortable because its a man, i would arrange it so he could be there too.

  • I wouldn't do it if he really didn't want me to. We're a team!

  • uhh if you already put 100 down on it get it!!! thats a waste of a lot of money if you dont! and regardless i agree its the artists job so no matter where you get it, its not hing that person hasnt seen before, or wont see again if you decide against it. my husbands like this but i think hes just mad bc i have 12 and he only has 4 or 5 lol. go for it, youve already made the appointment with the artist and put money down, dont waste it!

  • its gonna be on my upper back of a dragon/tiger. he will be there with me but he has somewhat of an agressive attitude & i'm afraid he might make my artist angry by staring at him & the artist will just mangle my tattoo cuz he's mad at my husband. i want him to be there because the tattoo is symbolic of our relationship (yin/yang/balance) he knew beforehand that i wanted this tattoo & drove me to pay for my deposit. his discomfort with my tattoo only started when we walked into the shop and he saw the artist. i love him & i dont know how to handle this.
