Tattoos with names: 350+ tattoos, sketches and photos

One of the most common tattoo themes is tattooing with names. Someone in this way expresses respect for their parents. Someone shows their boundless love for a boyfriend or girlfriend. And someone, for joy, fills in the name and photo of their child.

There will always be a reason, there would be a desire. And you can even get a tattoo with the name of your beloved.

Before hitting the tattoo, look at the meaning of the names. Suddenly, when you find out what this or that name means, you stop typing it.

Names of loved ones

At the same time the most popular and the most risky is a tattoo with the name of a loved one. The names of your parents or children are unlikely to change, but no one is safe from parting with a person. Therefore, before signing up for a session, consider the correctness of your actions several times.

According to statistics: of all tattoo inscriptions, the names of the former overlap most often .

Well, if you are completely confident and ready to please your soul mate, then go ahead. In this article you can spy on ideas for a future tattoo.

By the way, if you have been married for a long time, it would be a great idea to get a tattoo with the name of your husband or wife on some holiday. After several years of life together, such a gift will be doubly unexpected and pleasant.

And some stuff a tattoo with the name of their spouse in the form of a wedding ring on their finger. It turns out a kind of paired tattoo.

Names of the child

When a child is born, a person experiences the most wonderful feelings. And a completely logical desire is to capture this moment in your memory. A tattoo with the name of a son or daughter is a great way to do this.

Not necessarily the reason should be the birth of children. Even if you already have an older child, you can get a tattoo with his name. Let him know how much you love him.

There are many options for performing such a tattoo:

  1. initials (first letters of the name);
  2. name and date of birth;
  3. name and symbols (infinity, flowers, heart) ;
  4. portrait of a child in realism;
  5. print of a child’s hand or foot.

Yuri Dud’s tattoo is a good example. He is one of the famous people who got himself tattoos with the names of children.

Names of parents

You can also get a beautiful tattoo with the names of the parents. Although, most likely, there will be not a name, but simply the inscription “mom” or “dad”. This also includes other relatives. Nobody forbids filling a drawing in honor of a grandfather or grandmother, an uncle or aunt, a brother or sister.

I recommend making a sketch of such a tattoo as unique as possible. This can be achieved by adding some personal items. Do you love to fish with your father since childhood? Show it in a tattoo. Do you meet with your mom every weekend for a cup of coffee and a warm conversation? This is the theme for the sketch.

Believe me, even the most conservative parents who do not like tattoos will be very pleased.

Names of friends

In addition to relatives and second halves, you can get a tattoo with the names of a friend or girlfriend. These paired tattoos are in demand all over the world. And you don’t need to interrupt them, even if you suddenly stop communicating. At any moment, when you look at a drawing, stories from the past will immediately surface.

Joint tattoos look pretty cool, where one drawing is divided into two people. And each friend gets his own piece of the picture. It’s doubly cool when this piece itself is a complete drawing.

Names of idols

In this case, the name of your favorite star almost always accompanied by a portrait in the style of realism, taken from the photo. Usually these are popular people of a global scale: actors, musicians, artists. In general, those who somehow influenced your character and worldview.

Often such tattoos are done about people who have passed away. This is a worthy way to perpetuate the memory of not only a celebrity, but also a friend or relative.

Fonts

Regarding fonts for tattoo with names, here, as they say, taste and color. For men, more strict and dark sketches are suitable. For girls – smooth and bright. Also, the font should match the subject of the drawing.

For those who make a tattoo an inscription in another language, I would like to remind you: check the spelling several times and see if you made a mistake with the translation … This is a very common problem when tattooing in English, Chinese (hieroglyphs) or Latin. Although now Russian inscriptions are becoming fashionable.

Places on the body

The following zones are great for tattooing names: neck, collarbone, chest and underneath, sides and ribs, shoulders, forearms and wrists, ankles and ankles. In all these zones, you can fill in the names of both the child, and the parent, and the loved one. But there are still some peculiarities.

Let’s consider each in more detail.

For the neck and collarbones, try to choose the most beautiful and “light” sketches. Bulky and massive tattoos will look bad here.

The names of the closest people are stuffed on the sternum and under the breast. Because right under the heart.

There is already room on the sides and ribs to add some kind of pattern to the name.

Any tattoo will look good on parts of the arm. If your sketch is rather out of the ordinary, stuff it on the forearm or on the wrist – there will be less chance of making a portac.

For the ankle and ankle, similar recommendations, as for the neck with collarbones. Leg zones are more for girls than for men, so choose more patterned patterns.

On the back, the name tattoo looks good. It can be done on the whole back, and only on the shoulder blade. Since the area is large, there is plenty of room for creativity.

Catalog of ideas with alphabetical names

To make it easier for you to decide, we made a selection. Try not to just select a picture and copy it to yourself.

It will be much cooler if you take the best from several drawings and create a completely unique sketch.

Male

Names of men are usually looked for by their girlfriend and wife to fill on their bodies. But a guy for a tattoo in honor of a friend or brother can also look for a man’s name.
