Don't you this is a little odd...?

First I want to say I know it is not my tattoo, or my life or whatever.... and no matter how I feel it doesnt change it.... and also that i would not say anything about it to her.... but I just think it is so odd, and I was wondering if anyone else thought it was too, or if it is just me....

A friend got a tattoo of a butterfly with her sons name on it - his first and LAST name ( she is engaged to the dad) .... I just think it is weird that she put his last name on there... I dont know I have seen and heard of people putting first and middle but never last.... lol

  • If that is what she wants to do. I would not.

  • Well......her son's last name shouldn't change, so I really don't see anything wrong with it although I wouldn't ever do it. I don't think I would even put my kids middle names on.......just their first names.

  • I wouldn't put last or middle names on a tattoo. I've got my daughter's footprints on my back and just her first name underneath, that's good enough :)

  • I've never seen any names with the last name.

  • I've never seen any with last names but I think it's a son and it maybe shouldn't matter it it was a girl then yes really stupid

  • Her tattoo, her choice...I have seen much more disturbing tattoos than that.

  • It is a bit odd, I think. I would never get the last name especially where strangers could see it.

  • Who cares...that is her problem. And her money....tattos ARE a huge waste of money,especially now in this economy.And it looks tacky. ugh....

  • A boys name won't change usually, so I don't see the big deal. If it were a girl, that would be different because if she gets married she may change her name, but a boy, that won't happen with. So I don't see it as a big deal... I'm having a family tattoo done that has the Family Name (Last Name) with all of our first names around it... I don't see why not...
