Love Isn’t Forever but a Tattoo Is

keyshia-boobie-tattoo

Last night I received an e-mail from a dear reader (shout out to Jennifer) who brought it to my attention that MJB Jr. went and got a tattoo of her new beau’s name. In case you didn’t know Key-Key has been dating a NBA player. His name is Daniel Gibson and according to her tattoo, he’s “Truly Blessed”. Yup, that’s what the tattoo placed on the front side of her left shoulder reads: Truly Blessed D. Gibson.

As Neffe would say “Are You Serious?????”

What in the world is he doing that has her skipping to the tattoo parlor? They haven’t even been together a year.

In order for me to even think about putting someones name on my skin they’d better have saved my life. I’m talking blood transfusion, organ donation, bone marrow transplant. Either that or give me million and millions of dollars. Maybe then I’d get their name on my body but it’ll be in a place where no one, not even I, can see it like the sole of my foot or the under carry of my butt cheek.

For the record, I do not have any tattoos and seeing how Ms. The Way It Is chooses to showcase her love and beliefs by inking them on her skin, I’m very content with my decision. Seems like the more tattoos you have the less selective you are resulting in shit like this:

Yes, that says "#1 Dick Sucka" (SMH)
Yes, that says “#1 Dick Sucka” (SMH)

There is no image, symbol or name that I want on my body for the rest of my life. Hell, I’m trying to get rid of a birthmark and God wanted me to have that.

But seriously, Gibson must be knocking it all the way down to the ground. The look on her face says it all. The look on his face is kinda telling. (STSG prediction: This isn’t going to last)

I wondered how I would feel if someone got my name tattooed on their body. For one, I would be shocked followed by embarrassed and finally sorry for the guy cause I believe in bouncing and no tattoo is going to lock me in.

If you look at this picture, it’s clear the once little black girl lost is happy. The woman is glowing. Gibson must have that magic stick. Let’s just hope that Gibson isn’t her K-Ci and but instead her Kendu. Women have been known to let love misguide them. Cassie sent naked pics of herself to Diddy her boyfriend. Like Keyshia’s tatoo, images of Cassie’s cat trap will float around the Internet for eternity. Ri Ri got a tattoo that she shares with her sparring partner. I bet if she has his gov’t on her body she’d cut it off with a knife.

Don’t get it twisted, her half angel wing is stupid looking especially since C. Bruiser has the other half. E-V-E has a tattoo of her boo on her arm but got it covered after he cheated on her and they broke up.

Men have their WTF tattoo moments too:

There are many other ways I’d rather been shown that I’m loved. Let’s start with him paying my bills. Clear out my student loans and I’d marry you ASAP. He can also buy me a house. I’d make sure you have a copy of the key. Buying me clothes, purses, shoes, unlike most women, that means nothing to me. If you want to show me you love me, fix my credit.

  1. Lmao.single girl this is why I love u. That’s why I said I hope he does not dog her out. I’m not hatin. Me and my boo been 2gether for a year and I will b damned if I do some shit like that.he get on my nerves enough. Not even when u get married….that shit don’t last. Maybe if ur lucky. But I just think you will regret that shit everytime he/she do some dumb shit. Yea… he just seems soooo nonchalant like “whatever, I’m getting bored with chick. She smothering me”. But who knows, I’m not apart of their relationship. I wish her the best though.

  2. Maybe if it doesn’t work out, she can get the white pages and find another D.Gibson to hook up with…..

  3. SMDH…
    My sistas my sistas….
    I have tattoos, but a man’s name is not one I plan on getting. I have my great aunt, aunt, and mom’s initials around my ankle, cause they’ve all battled breast cancer. That’s about as serious as it gets.
    My thing is, tattoos are about something that will always be, and couples’ love is too fleeting to be permanently affixed to my person! Family love, love for your child, okay; someone you are just BOO’D UP with , not even a hubby? Nawsah, I’ll pass!

  4. Before the lovebirds jump the gun on a premature relationship, maybe they should talk about other things a bit more important than a tattoo. People don’t treat their bodies like a temple, more like a landfill if you ask me. If you decide to get a tattoo, please make sure you have already acquired the bling, the nuptials are completed, and you are living in a house on a hill. The house on the hill is overkill, but I’m just sayin’…

  5. Girl…I can relate! I don’t know what is wrong with people these days. TaToo’s are just a fad! In a few years another fad with hit the streets. Just like gold teeth and crowns in your mouth. Not too many people you see with a gold tooth or a crown around their tooth! Get hip-people don’t turn your body into a fashion statement!

  6. FIRST OF ALL WHO GIVES A LOVELY F**K WHAT THEY HAVE ON THEIR BODY’S THAT’S THEIR GOT DAMN BIZ YA’LL HAVE NO RIGHT TO EVEN SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THESE PEOPLE TATS CUZ ON GOD CAN JUDGE THEM !!!!!!!!!!

  7. i AGREE WIT LiL E!!!! Shit who the fu** are we to say what a person can or can not have on their bodies? They are paying for it, and probley will pay for it in the long run as well. But thats their problem not ours, and I got my boyfriends of two years name tatted on me as well. But if anything goes wrong I’ll just get it covered, It’s not that big of a deal!!! Ya’llm must have nothing better to do than talk about other people. GET A LIFE!!!!! And All You HATTING AZZ BI****S get a man before you throw salt on us who go our men tatted on us!!! Don’t Hate!

    I HAVE OVER 8 TATTOOS NOW AND THEY ALL HAVE SOME MEANING TO THEM. I DONT BELIEVE IN JUST GETTING A TATTOO WITH NO MEANING. NOW NAMES I THINK IT JUST DEPENDS. MY GRANDMA GOT MY GRANDPAS NAME ON HER BUT THAT WAS AFTER 50 YEARS OF MARRIAGE SO SHE KNOWS HE AINT LEAVIN HER :p. NOW AS FAR AS TATTOOS BEING A FAD. I DONT THINK SO, UNLIKE GOLD TEETH AND CERTAIN STYLES OF CLOTHES. TATTOOS CANT BE REMOVED THAT EASY.

  9. Uhm…yeah…I would NEVER get a man’s name tattoed on my body.

    @ Hotness1…you just proved the point exactly…you were dating someone else 3 years ago.Did you put his name also??Think about it.Does your boo have his name on your body??…that’s a whole other story if he does.Cause then you know if you 2 break up BOTH of you have to get that ish covered.Not just you alone.

    Relationships are too unpredictable to take that route in my opinion.Get some earrings with his name or a bracelet or something…a pendant even.Buy name plates for your car.Keisha Cole doesn’t have a strong track record with dudes…don’t even know why she would do that so fast…patience will take relationships a long way.Moving too fast…SMH

  10. On another note, women, just stop getting bad tattoos. Confused as to what a bad tattoo is? It’s on your neck. It circles your navel. Especially if your navel is no longer a circle but more of a smiley shape. It’s anywhere on your titty. It was done in a tattoo parlor that sells mixtapes and Hood DVD’s. It’s on your upper arm. Basically, if you’re going to get a visible tattoo, either go big or go home. If you have a full sleeve Japanese Koi design, I can respect it. But that hands clasped together in prayer (#27 on the wall) ain’t the business. Or that damn panther with the blood dripping from the claws. Thanks.

  11. Wow! I love Keyshia, but she lost some cool points. If it doesnt work out then what?

  12. I have two tattoos 1 on both of my wrist my mans name of 7 years and my two girls initials under a heart with wing. He also got my name on on his neck. I guess it just depends on where your at in your life and who your with and if there with you.

  13. At this point,do any of our opinions matter? What’s done is done and only Ms. Cole herself will have to deal with the outcome of her hasty decision. Would/could that be me? NEVER!! But that’s the clear cut point in the door, that’s me. With all decisions and matters of the heart, we have to maintain our DIGNITY AND GRACE through it all. For those who never had it to begin with or weren’t taught along the way, that’s the saddest part……………

  14. I have a tattoo of my Fiance’s name on my right wrist. But we kinda broke up the other day and now i’m left with it. She has my name on her wrist too. I still don’t regret getting it done. I was in love, i still am in love and i want the tattoo to be a reminder of my time with my perfect woman. Man, why do i always have to screw things up :/

  15. I love tattoos. I have a few…though none are visible to everyone….getting a tat with a loved one’s name is not smart however, tats can be changed or covered so all is not lost.

  16. ok so ladies, i have my husbands first and middle name tattooed over my heart, and do not regret it one bit and never will. I have been with my husband since we were 15, we are now 20. Hes the father of my two kids and even if God forbid something were to happen to us I still wouldnt regret it because he is my first love and the father of my children and it will always mean something to me. But every one has thier own opinion and this is http://www.saystheSINGLEgirl.com so i wouldnt expect single women to want a tattoo of a mans name on them…

  17. To lil E and Hottness…hmmm lemme just say its funny how yall Babies crying n sayn Don’t Judge n who are we 2say nething about what people got goin on wit them..so to u I say,Who the fuck are you to say we can’t say wht we want to about dumb ass people who get they’re bf’s names on their bodies???*yep,think about it!* Straight up its not a smart idea,no pretty retarded all the way around However people can do what they want!!its ok, n totally normal!!not against the law..but as long as they cn do that I can say its dumb as hell shawty;) Boyfriend???LMAAAAODon’t judge me!:)

  18. ok i just actually sat here n read every single one of yalls post. Tattoo’s aren’t gross or disgusting yes some look trashy on ppl and its cuz either someone who dont kno how to tattoo did em or there just as trashy as the tattoo. As for a female or a male getting someone they love tattoo’d on them seriously whats wrong with it? I’m not married to my man and yes I have his name tattoo’d on me and if something did happen i’ll never get it removed or even attempt to cover it up because at one point it was something that was extrememly important to me in my life. And for the girls who say they will never get a mans name tattoo’d on them never say never! you dont kno whats goin to be goin on 3 4 5 years down the road you just might. and stop hatin on ppl is that all this world does is hate? if your gunna actually sit up on the computer and look up pictures of ppl so you can talk smack on em then i feel bad for you cuz then yeah you’ll neva be where u wanna be in life

  19. HAVING A MAN TATTOOD TO MY BODY IS A WAY SHOWING MY LONG LASTING LOVE AND TO SHOW HIS LOVE HOLD NO BOUNDS IN MY HEART….

  20. Look, I agree that running out and getting some raggedy nigga’s name tatted on you 30s after you meet him is ludicrous, however, if you put up double digits with somebody, they represent a huge chunk of your life. If you have reached multiple milestones with a person and your relationship has suffered many hardhitting blows, and survived…. Why not honor the power of that love with a beautifully crafted tat paying homage to the soldier in your corner. The love of my life is someone I’ve known for over ten years, we plan on getting tats soon to represent our love. She will never have to worry about me up and leaving her, and if she left me I wouldn’t give 2 fucks, cuz the tat doesn’t represent our future. It is in homage to the journey we have shared.
