Yesterday, Chad Johnson, the athlete formerly known as Ochocinco, posted a photo on his Twitter account that shows a tattoo on his leg of Evelyn Lozado’s face with  her name beneath it. According to TMZ, Chad got the new ink this past weekend.  When asked about it on Twitter by some of his followers, he seemingly joked about it. If that is a real tattoo, I can only assume this is his way of expressing his love. Unlike the alleged head butt.

Plenty of people show their love for another person by getting a tattoo. I’ve seen faces of children, birth dates as well has full family portraits.   But there are also those people who love ink, and who seem to be obsessed with it.

I have no idea who that person is, but it’s been floating around the internet for the past couple of days. Not that the Mike Tyson face tattoo wasn’t bad enough, this person also has a mustache tattoo on his upper lip and tattooed sideburns. A bit of an overkill.

I am proud to say, I don’t have anyone’s name, initials, birth date or face on my body. But unfortunately, against my better judgement, I got a tattoo of the Leo astrological sign on my upper left arm when I was 17. Over the past several years, it has definitely been a conversation piece. Most people have either confused it with an Omega brand, or a sperm. Eventually, I did start telling people it was a sperm just to see the reaction on their face. Till this day I still contemplate having the tattoo removed, but then I always think about the pain involved. So more than likely, the tattoo will be with me forever.

Although tattoos aren’t permanent, they’re permanent enough for me, not to get one as a sign of love for a significant other. Once the relationship is over, unless you have a could of thousand to spend on laser surgery, that person will always be a constant reminder.

Clutchettes, would you tattoo a loved one’s name, picture, or anything else related to them on your body? Do you have any tattoos you now regret getting?

  • I always view tattoing a loved one on your body is a last ditch effort, consciously or subconsciously, to make something superficially permanent that’s already on shaky grounds (i.e: Chad’s new tat) Or it’s a short sighted attempt to show someone you are “forever” when really it doesn’t mean anything except you’ll probably hate it when and if you break up. I like tats but would NEVER get one of someone I was with, even if we were married. If we end up together forever, great! that is enough for me.

    I told my hubby that I would get his name tattooed somewhere on our 75th wedding anniversary…I figure i will be 105yrs old so why not!

    Chad getting her face seems a bit silly but who knows where his head is.

    all my tattoos are cleverly hidden and i got them when i was 19..i have two names/initials. one is my grandmothers name and the other is an initial of my best friend at the time. we arent as close as we were in fact we barely talk but she was a good friends so no regrets, idk if i would feel different if the tattoo were more prominent, also my ex tattooed my name and birthday on his arm after i repeatedly told him not to…the girl he cheated on me with eventually made him cover it as she tattooed his name right above her vagina and made him get her name over his heart. my name is now covered with some tacky stars that barely cover it as you can clearly still see my name

    • 0_o i thought everybody knew not to get a bf/gf’s name tattooed on you? SMH

      this is why i stopped believing that all adults have common sense.
