baby name and tattoo

I have a couple of small tattoos and would love nothing more than to get my new babie's name to be my next tattoo! It would be small and discreet like the rest of my tats, but I have heared mixed stories on getting your kid's name tattooed. Like it means they died? I thought maybe if I had the date and name if would mean that. but I just want the name. whats your take?

  • I'm getting my kids named tattooed to me. I have honestly never heard that people only do it because they died. People put the names of the people they love on them

  • Definitely go for it! I haven't ever heard of tattooing kids names only if they've died.

  • I have so many people that come to me wanting their kids names tattooed on them and it does not mean that they are dead it just shows that they are the ones that you love and you want to show it off proudly. I dont see nothing wrong with getting the tattoo if you realy want it I have my grandpa's name on my body and getting ready to have my girls names done to.
