  • I think that is only for a SO, your kid will ALWAYS be your kid. they are saying dont tattoo your husbands name on you because you never know what could happen, but your son will be your son no matter what! I have both of my daughters names on me.

  • I don't know.. I never heard that.. but maybe it's because a lot of people get the name after they passed but other things like initials or whatever to honor their living children? I have no idea lol

  • It's bad luck to put a spouses, not a child's. But to each their own, if you want to get it go right ahead! And they probably say it because a lot of people got dumped and now have a permanent reminder of it lol.

  • I have only heard that in reference to a SO. Ya know because they can always leave and then you still have their name permanently stuck on you. I have never heard anyone say this about a child though. I plan on getting my daughter's footprint with her name and date of birth, and the baby I am pregnant with now I am going to get a handprint, name, and date of birth.

  • i think that if you want to get a tatoo with your childs name on your shoulder that is your right. you are their mother and you are just showing how proud you are of your child or children.

  • i think that only applies for if you ink a person you are close to but not family people come and go but family always stays im going to get my kids initials on the top of my foot but im not superstitious

  • I have heard the same, it only applies to SO. If you tattoo their name on your body it will jinx the relationship. You obviously can't jinx your relationship or break up with your kid! I think you are fine... I did hear if you got your SO name anywhere neck up you are not longer jinxing a relationship.... cause I really want my SO's name across my neck........... nope sorry.
