Getting a significant other’s name tattooed on you can be a wonderful thing at the time, but since most relationships eventually end at some point, it may not be the smartest decision you make. What do you do when you have an ex lover’s name inked on you, especially if it’s in an extremely visible place? Or even worse, a very personal place, one where your new love interest has to see it anytime you are intimate? It is costly and painful to have tattoo removal done. The other option is to get a cover up tattoo. Cover up tattoos are great, but they aren’t always easy. A skilled and experienced tattoo artist is needed for this delicate task.
