Initial tattoos relate to emotions, your deep love for someone take you to the step where you decide to tattoo their name letters. It is an abiding reminder of your dearest one, or the one who very near to you. If you want to show your deep love to your dear, just go and take a permanent tattoo his/her name on your body. It will remain with you for a lifetime. But before getting your initial tattoo done, here are some facts you should know about.
What are Initial Tattoos and their meanings
As I describe above, it’s related to emotions. Initial tattoo is just letters, usually take the first alphabet of your name and your loved one, or some time only the first letter of your lover’s name.
Its depend on the person, for whom he feel as much love till tattoo his name. It can be the name of a girlfriend/boyfriend, husband/wife, parents love for kids or kids tattoo their parent name (very rare) also can be pet name.
Be Aware About Permanent Initial Tattoos
There are too many other and more practical ways to represent your love for someone. You have to give them respect, try to help them, and give them proper time. Anyone have little feeling can understand that you care them, but if he really don’t care than even you tattoo their name also they will don’t care it.
So be aware, you are going to do something permanent on your body, which will stay with you almost for all of your life. Life is not always same, someone now very near to you later your feeling can be changed, its human nature. I see many cases, people after breakup/divorce, searching ways to remove these names from their body, but for that they have to burn their skin.
You need to discuss with your partner first, whose initial you want to make a tattoo. Some people think that maybe it’s illegal to tattoo someone’s name without their permission. But the fact it’s not, because no one have 100% unique name, it can be matched with anyone with anything. So in my opinion better than surprise your love one, discuss with them first, because to tattoo someone’s name without their permission will sometime make them freaked out. Here are some ways, you can get initial tattoos without any fear.
