Name tattoos can be designed using letters alone, or in combination with images and decorations. The tattoo lettering mirrors the style, personality and attitude of the bearer. The tattoo genre also utilizes a myriad of different styles and families of fonts, opening up numerous design possibilities.
Nothing is more personal than a name marking because it could mean so much to the bearer, yet may be irrelevant to an onlooker. Name of loved ones including spouses, children, other family members or special friends are typical tattoo specimens. The problem with these tattoos is when a break-up or souring of relations occurs.
The owner of the tattoo gets a bitter and unpleasant remembrance of the past. Unless the name represents an undying love, the bearer’s only option is modifying the tattoo or erasing them completely through a tattooist. The better option is to use the names of loved one who are permanently part of your life, like family members. Boyfriends and girlfriends have suspect permanency.
