Choosing to get a name tattoo is a big deal depending on whose name is being placed on the body. Most people choose to get their own name tattooed somewhere on their body, whether it be on the neck, shoulder, arm or leg. While it is advised to be careful when getting a name tattoo of a significant other, a lot of people still choose to do so.

Some have even gone to the extent to show their loyalty to companies or bands by placing those names on their bodies.
