“Girlfriend’s and boyfriend’s names.”

Though that wasn’t the only one…

“Even husband’s and wives’ names are kind of a bad idea as it’s not unusual for the relationship to go south after getting the tattoo.”

“Currently with a tattoo artist, and yes, couple’s names are on the never, not doing it list.”

Another had a sneaky plan.

“My guys don’t flat out tell people ‘no’ they usually give a crazy outlandish price and that turns people off.”

“And when a friend of ours wanted a girl’s name on him and wouldn’t take no for an answer, we did the name in red and orange so it was more likely to fade, and easier to cover.”

“Some will get offended and assume I owe them a service, and tell me I’m just a s*** tattoo artist, but most the time they understand the reasonings and end up getting something else that day thankfully.”

And there was one other tattoo that came up.

“I asked this question to the artist who did my tattoo. He said they refused to do stars in his shop.”

“Apparently stars are for people who want a tattoo but don’t know what they want.”
