In previous blog posts we have talked about why you should avoid getting someone else’s name tattooed on you. Name tattoos are very commonly sought for removal. What we haven’t talked about is couple tattoos. Many couples are turning to tattoos to show their love and devotion to one another or to remember a special time in their lives. A Huffington Post article recently got us thinking about couple tattoos and what happens when couples break up.
Couple tattoos aren’t just limited to names, matching tattoos or wedding rings. Britney and her husband got matching floral tattoos. “We got our tattoos on our honeymoon. They were the flowers in our wedding. They serve as another reminder of our commitment to each other.”
Kayla and her former boyfriend, Alex, decided to design tattoos for one another. Each of them drew a picture of something they cherished and the other person got it tattooed on their calf. “Our breakup was painful and I hated having that constant reminder of him on me,” Kayla said. Kayla opted to have a tattoo artist add on to the tattoo and change the design. “Do I wish I didn’t have the tattoo? Yes. But I no longer think of him every time I look at the tattoo.”
So what happens if you break up and no longer want the couple tattoo with your ex? There are a few options. Many people choose to do what Kayla did and cover up or add to the tattoo. If the tattoo is large or has a lot of dark ink, a tattoo removal specialist can remove the ink completely or lighten it up for a cover up.
