I always say that it’s a terrible idea to get your significant other’s name tattooed on your body. Call me a pessimist, but the odds are things won’t work it and you’ll be stuck with a permanent reminder of someone you would rather forget.
Here are just a few examples:
Brandy had Quentin Richardson’s face etched on her back after he proposed to her in 2004. After they broke up, his face morphed into a cat.
Jermaine Dupri has an image of Janet Jackson on his ribcage as a gift to her for her birthday, and they are always allegedly breaking up.
And Nas has to be regretting the image of Kelis on the inside of his right forearm right now, as they battle in court over child and spousal support. Makes you want to cut out your forearm with a knife.
What about singer Melinda Santiago, who had Usher’s name tattooed on her waist, and Tyrese literally got out of bed with her because he couldn’t take THAT constant reminder.
Just listen to this prime example of a tattoo gone wrong, from Amber Rose, who thought she was in love with Ernest at the tender age of 15. The tattoo has since been covered with roses. She said her mom told her she would regret it and she did, almost immediately. But poor Ernest has her name tatted up twice on his body![audio:http://angelayee.mystagingwebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/Amber-Rose-Tatoo.mp3]
“I learned a lot from him so every time I look at that tattoo I know not to make the same mistakes… I was 15… some guy from my neighborhood was doing tattoos so he hooked me up.”
As far as other tattoo regrets, she has one more.
“I have, you know when Total came out and the girl had the paw prints on her legs… yeah unfortunately, I just feel like everybody has them so…”
Nothing against tattoos, but I’m saying… think long and hard before you end up going through the painful removal process!
