would you tattoo your spouse's name on you????

I want to state this for the record at the very first, I LOVE TATTOOS! I have a total of 8 tattoos and they all mean something different. 6 of the tattoos form a chain around my hips and then I have the two that are below.

This tattoo is inspired by G Loomis' fish. I told my tattoo guy to make it meaner. This is what we started out with....
And this is what we ended up with. I love his interpretation of what I wanted. He free handed the "Fear No Fish" on it and I love how it all turned out. This one is for my mom. She passed away over 20 years ago and I wanted to do something special for her. The same tattoo guy did this design and tattoo as the other. I gave him the spelling and he sat down with a Bic pen and drew out the design on my foot. I love it and want to add to it someday.
I said all this to say that I have no issues with tattoos. The Mister and I have made an agreement though about our tattoos - neither one of us will have each others names tattooed on us. I will never get "Mister" tattooed on me, I refuse to. I hope that I can have my kids names tattooed one day and even have a design in mind for when that time comes. But I won't get my spouses name tattooed on me.
That being said, I have a good friend who called me with a question. How would I react if my husband went and got my name tattooed on him? I would have a conniption fit but we have already crossed that bridge and discussed it so I know that he wouldn't do that. How would you react and what are your thoughts on names being tattooed on you or someone else???? I am needing some opinions to share with my friend.

That is some real nice ink so give your tattoo guy a thumbs up for me. I have 4 tats myself, a mongoose with a snake in it's mouth, a eagle with it's wings spread, a wolf holing at a blue moon and my dog Sampson.

There is at least two more I want, thanks for sharing.

I would have no problem inking my husband's name on me, nor would he have a problem with it. He's frequently mentioned getting my name on his finger where he wears his wedding ring because he doesn't like jewelry. If you would get anyone else's name, then why not your spouse's name?
