Tell me about it. I'll let you off this time though. Just don't do it again.

Just do it.
Apologies for being so blunt, but if she has a problem with it, that's her's to deal with. If it's something you want to do for yourself and that'll make you happy, sit down & have a short discussion with her. I'm only young, but I could never look back on something I wanted to do for myself but didn't because someone else thought otherwise. If she's the right person, she'll respect that. You only live once.

But if someone likes you *because* of the tattoos, that is just as bad, surely?

I know that some men (usually older, educated types) are terribly curious about what they see as my exoticism.

In reality, I'm terribly conservative (small c!) and not remotely dangerous.

True. But I'm guessing (because I've never been in the situation) that you find out pretty quickly that that's why they're interested in you, and so things don't go too far?

I'd say she's your wife and that comes first. Sure I love tattoos and I would be very upset if the person I loved didn't want to me to get them, however why not try to compromise? Find out what it is exactly she doesn't like. It maybe that she had a horrible expeirence with someone who had Japanese tattoos. If she loves you then as much as it will piss her off, I am sure she will eventually get her head round it, but I don't agree with being in a committed relationship and just putting yourself first, even if it is being comfortable in your skin.

There surely is a compromise. Get to the root of her problem. If it's purely ignorance then try educating her. If there's something deeper then you can work on that too.

sorry if this has already been suggested... but how about trying to involve her in the design process, try to get her interested in how a tattoo is put together, it might make her appreciate the end result more!

Reading through this thread makes me realise how lucky I am, damn lucky. Rob isn't into tattoo's but has supported me 100% through out and encourages me to be myself. ............A few small rules but still is cool.

I guess it depends on whether you see ink more important than the person in your life. Can there be a middle ground and compromise or is it a definite no -go?

I've sacrificed ink to pay the bills, and in fact I think I'm about 5 visits behind that I had intended on my phoenix .......... in other words I see real life, people and family incredibly important.
Ink is important to me, but not at all costs.
