Title: If you get my name, I'll be really angry!
Post by: RingTailedLemur on March 08, 2010, 11:30:02 AM
I was casually seeing a guy while I was at uni (he wasn't a student), and mentioned that I was planning to finally get the tattoo that I'd wanted for a number of years and was deciding on the design.

His response?  "Okay, but if you get my name or initial or something I'll be really angry!"

Um.....  WAIA!

What a bizarre response!  Are you sure he wasn't joking?

Yeah - he was serious.  Odd, huh?

Joking was my first thought, as well. If he really thought some girl he'd been casually seeing for a few weeks was going to get his name tattooed (how do you conjugate that?) on herself i can only imagine he was looking toward many future disappointments.

...i bet he thought that song was about him, too...

 :P

My response? "What kind of girls do you usually date?"  ::raised eyebrow::

raised eyebrow: Don't worry, I haven't set our wedding date yet. I've only made the reservations...

I don't know if I would've been able to contain my laughter. 

I certainly wouldn't have been able to contain the snarky reply ... that is if I could get anything past the jawdrop!

The reply would probably be something like "Naw, I was planning to get the names of our future children -- you like Emma and Austin, right?"

or

"My tattoo is something I want to enjoy for the rest of my life, not someone I can't even remember in 5 years!"

Sorry, Evil Danismom escaped and is on a rampage...

Sounds like he's had a bad experience with regards to this. Maybe there is an ex somewhere with his name on her??

Or he has hers?

I really think I'd have a hard time not laughing and saying something along the lines of "Don't flatter yourself!"  It would probably also be the last time I'd go out with a guy who thinks I have so little sense.

Yeah, my first thought was, "Why kind of girls have you dated before?!"

I have a tattoo. I love tattoos. But, I don't even think I would get my husband's name put on my body anywhere (If I had a husband). Even when I was considering a tattoo dedicated to my mom, it was all symbolic, and not her name.

My thoughts are that either he was thinking you were *way* more into this relationship that you probably were, or he's been bitten before.

If his name was, for example, Barry, say "Why on Earth would I want to get "Garry" emblazoned across my rear?"  >:D

Unless it also had his social security number why would he care? He isn't the one with an ex's name printed on his body - which is probably pretty awkward with her next boyfriend if they don't share the same name.

A little full of himself, wasn't he?

You should thank him for giving you the heads up on what an idiot he is.

IF ONLY you could have gotten a temporary tatoo of his name!  It would have been priceless!!!!

My BIL can say that he has 'your name and my name tattooed on my butt.' Because he does. Literally, 'your name' and 'my name.'  And yes, I've seen it.  ::) He flashed the whole room to show us.

My friend got these temporary tattoos with one of the Twilight books that said 'Edward' and 'Jacob'. She put them both on at the same time for a costume one time..it was pretty hilarious!

I wonder if he didn't have an obsessive girlfriend in the past who got his name tattooed on her? What happens though if you had a dear family member's name you wanted tatttooed on you and it just happened to be this guy's name?

Funnily enough, I do have my husband's initial on my thigh.

That might be for another thread though, as someone at work told me recently, "You think you are happily married now..."  (http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/sauer/angry-smiley-028.gif)

I had a BF many years ago that got my name tattooed over his heart. It was a complete surprise to me and I was not all that impressed. But I would still never assume my next BF was going to be that big of an idiot.

I've heard original BF tattooed a scorpion over my name. I thought that was pretty appropriate since I come from the desert  >:D

I knew a guy who had the USDA Prime symbol tattooed on his butt.
It was false advertising.  >:D
