    What should I do? Should I be concerned about it? Or just pretend it's not there?

    Oh, honestly... why should he have it removed just for YOU? If he keeps you around as long as he kept his ex, by the time the scabs heal you won't be around anymore, and it would have all been in vain. Ignore it, knowing that everything is temporary, and whenever he pisses you off, you can always use it against him.

    Hell, you can even use it as an excuse to dump him once the dick is no longer intriguing. You'll thank me later. icon_twisted.gif

    It's not your body, you can't do anything.
    It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with your relationship to him.

    Anyone who gets a tattoo of their ex is a fucking idiot anyway, this should be a giant red flag. I could care less that he won't change the name or whatever you want him to do, the fact that he was dumb enough to have his ex's name on his body in a tattoo and it's there forever shows he is as dumb as a rock. I would dump him so fast he would not know I disappeared.
    Tattoos is general are a sign to me, "I am a sheep, have no personality and I mark my body with symbols because everyone else does." Generally, I don't get to a second date with anyone who has tattoos.

    Wow...strong opinion (which you're totally entitled to, by the way). But kinda sad to think of all the great guys and opportunities you could be missing out on just because you're so closed-minded. Also ironic that you're so judgemental. We (gays) face closed-minded judgement all the time from bigots and homophobes. Why judge others without getting to know them and/or why they have a tattoo? What do you have to lose?

    Cuz you know, we all totally pick the same generic tribal bullshit everyone else has and nobody with a tattoo knows what it says/means/the history behind it...icon_rolleyes.gif

    You dated a man who chose to tattoo another man's name on him?

    You are a bigger idiot than your idiot boyfriend.

    If its any consolation, I was a complete fucking retard when I was 18.

    God bless you.

    Demand he gets your name tattooed above the ex's in bigger, bolder font. You deserve top billing after all.

    Well... I understand that people like to keep some kind memory of their exes, since it's still part of one's history but.

    ...

    I would feel very weird about it. Especially during sex. I mean come one. You're getting plowed and then you see his ex's name there.

    LOL!

    Yet another example of why you should think twice about getting anyone's name tattooed on your body because you never know when you might have a falling out with them, including your parents!

    remember: everyone has a past that you can never erase, whether its a tattoo or something more ephemeral (memories, emotions, interactions, friends, etc.). its worthwhile to try to learn and embrace that idea.

    I too think that tattoos are silly, but I would not make an issue of it. If it's just one or two fairly small tattoos, it would be just as silly to make an issue of it as it would be to get tattoos.

    It would be easy to date a man before seeing the tattoo. Even then, I can think of situations where the tattoo might not be discovered for some time.

    Sounds like he's more into his Ex than you.

    But that's assuming a lot.

    He should remove it. If you can't keep a promise like love than why keep it on your body? What is it representing, a promise based on a past relationship?

    The symbolism of it all isn't appealing for you and he should want to have it removed.

    It's gross. I wouldn't want the guy I'm in love with to walk around with another mans name on him, especially if it was an Ex.

    This. Although I think it's quite odd that someone would make a lifetime commitment with someone about a tattoo. icon_confused.gif

    People that get the name(s) of anyone on their body that isn't a parent or child are stupid.

    Legally change your name to the same name as the ex. Problem solved.
