A tattoo for Valentine's Day?

Deep down people know they probably shouldn't get a tattoo with a lover's name on it. Permanent skin art has long term consequences and should not be motivated by fleeting desires. Despite this common sense, I've noticed over the years that my tattoo website Destination Tattoo always has a surge of traffic leading up to Valentine's Day. I suspect people are researching tattoos because they are perhaps about to get inked as a tribute to a romantic relationship. Or, some of the visitors are trying to figure out how to get a tattoo removed. Maybe somebody needs to erase the name of a previous lover before wooing a new one?

No matter what is motivating you to get a tattoo, choose the tattoo design carefully and be aware that tattoo removal hurts more AND costs more than getting the tattoo in the first place.
