Do you think it's tacky?

Just curious as to what you ladies you think it's tacky to get a tatoo with your name on your body? Would you ever do it? (Yes I've been thinking about it)

  • It's not tacky, just odd. But if you ever get amnesia, you'll have a head start.

  • I think it would be tacky if it were somewhere silly. I hate seeing name tattoos on girls' necks or clevage. But that's just me. Anywhere else I don't think would be tacky. But it's your body, if you like the idea then go for it!

  • Personally, I don't see the point in getting your own name tat'ed on you. I always wondered why people would get their name tat'ed on it because you forget your name ... LOL. I'm j/j.
    I personally wouldn't do it, but it's all what you want b/c it's your body and you have to live with it for the rest of your life.

  • i have a tattoo of my name.. i got it when i was 18. I don't think it's a bad tattoo, but it's not one i show off and even tell people i have. i don't regret it, but if i had to decide today, i wouldn't have gotten it. So make sure it's something you won't mind having 10 years or more down the road.

  • I don't recall ever considering tattoo-ing my own childrens names maybe but never my own. Tacky when it comes to tattoo's is a relitave term. What one thinks is art, another may find trashy. I have a tattoo, personally I don't like large ones nor do I appreciate women with tattoo's on their necks...I just don't like the look, my own personally op. Do what is right for you.

  • I have my kids names on me. But not my name I guess I would but, I never have. I have 13, but i my OP if you get a tat put it where no one can see it. It makes it really hard and ppl look at you crazy when you have em everywhere bc I cant even wait a table bc I have a tat on my wrist. Its the only one that can be seen.

  • I dont think I'd get a tattoo of my own name,personally but if it's something you want then get it.

  • I have always thought why do people tattoo their own names? in-case you get drunk or killed?
    People you love on you is cool.

  • I'm not sure I would call it "tacky" but I think that would be one of my least favorite tattoos. I can understand getting children's names, or paying homage to someone else, but your own name seems more like a label. Of course, you'd have to have a really cool name, too. If you had a stupid one like mine........well, picture this......I'm standing in front of you in line, my DS drops something and I bend down to pick it up, peeking out of the top of my too low cut jeans you see "Windy" tattooed above my butt........ROTFLMBO......Now THAT would be tacky for sure!
