Woulkd you get your childs nickname tattooed on you ?

First I want to say that I know it is HER tattoo, HER life, HER body, etc... but in MY OPINION, I think it is odd and I want to know your OPINION on it too ( like is it more common than I think)?

I know a girl ( I went to school with her) she has 2 sons ( a 1 year old and a newborn) ....she got a huge tattoo on her foot of a big flower, on the bottom of the tattoo is has her youngest name ( jeremy) and then on the top she has her oldests' nickname ( peanut) ... I just think its weird that she would get ones nickname and ones real name... especially a nickname that he will ( most likely) grow out of ....

  • I thought about getting her REAL name tattooed on me in Sanskrit (ancient Indian Text). Her name (Tulsi) is Sanskrit & it looks cools in that form of writing. One day i think i will do it.

  • I think it's cute. But yeah I would have done either both "real" names or both "nicknames." Cute idea though.

  • I agree, she should have put either both nicknames or both real names. My kids' nicknames are "Big guy" for my son and "Grumpy Chunky Monkey" for my 15 mo old DD. So yah not getting those tattooed anywhere on my body!!

  • I am not knocking the idea of getting your childs name on you ( if I would ever get a tattoo, that is what I would get done) ... its just the thought of getting one real name, and one nickname... and also the fact that she has said she wants atleast one more kid, there wouldnt be anymore room to put another name...

  • I would get my kids' real names tattooed on me.. but my ex got their nicknames on him "CRAZY" & "FREAK".. and let me tell you, he called her freak for just about a week and he hasnt called her since.

  • Does she call her youngest by his name and her oldest by his nickname? Maybe since that's what she refers to them as, that's why she chose them...I don't know...

    I personally won't do names at all. I don't have any tattoos, but if I ever get any, I might get something to represent my kids, but no names.

  • Its not something I would do. I do want to get a tattoo with both my children's names, but I don't have any yet.
