When it comes to name tattoos, even the tiniest details matter. They are very simple and delicate and certain details can either make or break your tattoo. There is so much work that needs to be done before getting a name tattoo, you need to choose the perfect place, the perfect font, and even the color. But, don’t worry. We are here to help you out with our inspiring ideas below.
Choosing a name might be tricky. If you are a parent, then you may get the names of your children; or you may get the name of your significant other, best friend, sibling, or even your parent. If you find it hard to choose the name of only one person, then don’t. There is nothing wrong with getting multiple names tattooed on your body, you will see some great examples below.
Of course, just like with every other tattoo, you should make sure to pick a tattoo artist with experience and talent. You can always ask the artist to show you his/her portfolio, so you can make the right choice.
As we mentioned already, you may also choose some details to add to your tattoo, personalize it, and make it meaningful for life.

28. Couples Name Tattoos
Couples can get amazing matching name tattoos. And, in addition, they can decorate them in so many ways to eternize their love. One of the ideas you can use is the image above. Even though, these name tattoos are done on one person, couples can take this idea, and personalize it. Crowns above the names perfectly clearly explain the importance of these persons in someone’s life.
27. Beautiful Name Tattoos
Well, this is one more idea for name tattoos, and it isn’t a name tattoo. You can always combine any two words together, any two names together, or any two symbols together. The word “sister” in this case can be easily replaced by a name to create a perfect name tattoo.
26. Arm Name Tattoos
25. Names on Wrists
Wrists are one of the most popular placements for tattoos in general. One way to decorate and personalize your name tattoos is by adding certain dates above, under, or next to the names. The date may be the date of someone’s birth, the day you two met, or you may even get the coordinates of the place where you two met!

16. Simple Heart Tattoos
15. Three Names In A Heart
If you simply cannot pick one name, or you do not want to, here is a great idea! Three names combined together to form a heart is a great idea for name tattoos. What do you think about it? Personally, besides the heart, we also love this font.
There is a large number of existing fonts you can choose from, and each of them has a ‘personality’ of their own. A funky font may be used for a goofy person who loves to joke, or a cursive font may be used for that smart, all grown-up sibling of yours. Another great idea is to have the person write their name down, and then make their handwriting one of your name tattoos.
12. Name Tattoos Gone Wrong
We always tell you to think carefully before getting a tattoo. Getting the name of your lover inked is adorable, but only if you are 100% sure that love will last forever. This tattoo is an example of name tattoos gone wrong. It may be a joke, or it may be the way how this person keeps the track of their exes.
