    Yes I know this is my choice, but just wondering what people thought about this tattoo. I am thinking about getting my nieces name tattooed on me - it was my sisters first child and the baby later passed. I asked my sister about getting the tat done and she said she was cool with it. Just wondering thoughts/opinions on getting it? She was only 5 days old, died on valentines day.... its been some time now (many years since she died) and I just thought its something thats meaningfull to me - and my sister is fine with me getting it.

    it's your choice and all that. my take on names is family or lost loved ones - so sounds good to me.

    Thinking about getting it done in some sorta cursive looking script -- possibly on my neck just for those wondering.

    Not 100% on placement just yet, but I really like tattoos there... id like to get it so that it could be covered up by a collered work shirt if need be.

    lots of people get tattoos to honor family members.
    if you feel it's right and you won't regret it later, go for it.
    the biggest thing, imho, is making sure it's something you'll look back on as a good decision.

    The only reason its in "debate mode" is because it wasnt my kid that died...

    just asking, to get the thoughts flowing.
    why do you want this tattoo?
    why do you want a tattoo of your niece's name?

    As a rememberance/memorial if you will

    Im extremely close with my sister, she practically raised me growing up because my mom was a nut job and my dad worked 80 hours a week because he didnt want to be around my mom, lol.

    i was wondering if y'all were really close.

    it's almost like it's honoring your sister too - a memorial to your niece and honoring all your sister has done for you and acknowledging her loss...

    i think you've made your decision. ;)

    i got tattoos to remember my little cousin that died, i think it serves as a nice reminder (to happier times, if you will) it helps me think of her every day... i think its a great idea if thats what you want it for. for that reason, it's hard to imagine ever regretting it, know what i mean?

    Memorial tattoos are great. Neck placement isn't for everyone though. Put some serious consideration into where you are going to put it.

    Like I said, this was my first initial thought for placement... I am thinking right side of my neck. I dont really want a tattoo any other places right now.

    Do you want a tattoo on your neck 20years from now?

    You have to be a raw mother fucker to roll with a neck tattoo.

    Is this your first tattoo or not? Unless you are heavily tattooed, then I would suggest against having a neck tattoo. Why? Because you will probably regret it later on.

    Not my first tattoo, it will be my second... But I plan on eventually getting a bunch of tattoos, so eventually it will fit right in :noes:
