ok so my daughters step-mother was sitting here (we all live together) and said she wants wants to get a tattoo with my daughters name... now i feel that is wrong since its not her birth child and god-forbid her and my ex do split then she will have my daughters name on her body... i turned and said that to her and she doesnt see my point of view, i even said that would be like me getting my step sons name tattoo'd on me and i dont feel that is right and my man agreed... what do u think?

Well I'm actually in the process of getting both my kids' names tattooed (whether I gave birth to them or not). I love both of them the same, and yes I am the mother to both of them, even if only one is bio. Divorce or not I will always be a mother to my sson and honestly I think he would be really hurt if I got his sibling's name on me and not his.

I think it's absolutely HILARIOUS you think you can tell this woman what she can and can not put on her body!

I am going back and forth about this one as well, the way I'm looking at it though is, will my step son feel left out and as if I don't want to claim him if I get my other two children's names and not his? I have been in his life since he was two, I know 100% that I will be getting my two biological children's names and it just seems silly not to get his because he is my son too, I just wonder who I will be offending.

It depends. If she has children and is getting everyone's names tattooed on her, and she leaves your daughter out, then your daughter might feel that her step mom doesn't love her as much. However, if they have not been together very long, and there are no other children in the equation, then hell no. But it is her body and she can do with it as she sees fit. She has a right to put any name on her body she wants. If she does split from your ex, I guess she is going to look really stupid with the name of a child on her that she has no rights to and doesn't see.

I say don't worry about it. Its her body. I don't think names should ever be tattoo'd on a person ,but to each their own. If it really bothers you maybe suggest a symbol that represents your daughter.

I'm there with you! Although I can't control what she puts on her body. I would tell her to make it as big as possible, because if they split than she'll have this big name on her body she will have to explain.

I have to agree with you totally! A step parent shouldn't tattoo there stepchildrens name on themselves.
