Name tattoos are common and are a classic example of tattoo. The name of a lover or spouse is common as well as the name of parents or children or best friends. Name tattoos can also be incorporated into larger tattoos for a bigger impact. Name tattoos can literally go anywhere since lettering can be big or small. It is a good choice for a first tattoo because it can be small and go onto an area that isn't as painful, but thought should be put into who's name you are getting. For example, the name of a child is a good choice, the name of a boyfriend might not be if the relationship doesn't end up lasting.
