I have been wanting to get a tattoo on my back of my children's name, and I want to include my stepson with them, because no matter what happens, he will ALWAYS be a part of my life and I love him as my own anyway. I feel like if I did not get his name, when he's old enough, he's going to feel hurt and unloved that I left him out. I have spoken with a girl who has a stepdad, and she says that if her dad got his bio kids and not her name as a tattoo, she would be horrifically hurt.
Now I am also worried about the Bio mom. I know it's my body and technically she has no rights when it comes to what I put on my body, I could put HER name on me and she couldnt say anything (not that I woule EVER do that), but what would you do about it? I dont feel like I should ask her permission because again, it's not her body, and it's just an act I'm doing of love for all our kids. But what happens if she decides to throw a fit?
