Does he like electronic music? There's a French electronic musician that goes by Colleen, he could just claim it's a tribute to her. She has a website if he wants to study up on her.

We all have pasts. At this stage of my life, I wouldn't want to be with anyone who DIDN'T have a past.

I wouldn't ever want a guy to get my name tattooed on himself (and I sure as hell wouldn't get a guy's name tattooed on me), but I do think there's something sweet about a gesture like that. Way I see it, yeah he might've tattooed her name on his arm/neck/whatever, but he's with me now. That's what's real. And the last time I cared about what anyone else thought in a situation like that was sometime around the turn of the century, so...

eh, no big deal to me, it isn't like he can change who the Mother of his child is and asking/telling him to remove it is like telling him to erase his past in my opinion.
When you accept someone you accept them and whatever comes with them if you truly want a long term relationship.

I wouldn't date someone with such a tattoo in the first place. I understand being bothered by it. The only name I have tattooed on me is my first son's. I see no reason to ever tattoo a partner's name on my body.

but when he covered that tattoo suddenly he wasn't divorced anymore, he had never been married now! and the pictures he had of his daughter in his apartment? suddenly empty of her picture! she was erased from the photos, sort of like in back to the future! it worked! his past was erased! because that was the intent to cover/remove it and is what bothered me, that he had a past. i wanted it all erased dammit!


seriously, it has absolutely nothing to do with trying to erase the past.

I like tattoos.

But I don't think I would choose a guy who feels the need to tattoo somebody's name on him.

Children/parents/pets names = borderline acceptable
wife/gf = that's just stupid.

Yes he's basically wearing an advert that says "I make bad short-term decisions"

Not exactly attractive.
