How Far Would You Go to Express Your Love?

We see celebrities showing their affection for loved ones in various ways all the time. Some go so far to make their statement permanent, Angelina Jolie and Melanie Griffith to name a few, while others take the safe route, opting for things far less binding like Madonna and Paris Hilton. Since Hollywood relationships are so volatile, one would think these celebs would have learned their lesson by now, but I guess not — new tattoos are popping up every day.

I've never gone to any such extremes to express my love for someone, but have you? Even if you feel like your relationship will last forever, would you do something that was a permanent display of your feelings? I'm curious ladies, how far would you go to express your love and devotion for someone?

If I were to get married, I might have our names engraved on the inside of the wedding band, but I would never get tattooed or permanently brand my body with another person's name. After all, I'm not a cow that belongs to a farmer.

I have 11 tattoos (three rather body encompassing) including both my kids names and my husbands...the more you get honestly the less you over think them ;)

on her inner thigh? really? I never would have expected that from her....thats kinda hot actually. I could maybe do something like that, since both mine and my bfs names start with J's, it wouldnt be too obvious. But I wouldnt do it until we had been married..for a while.

According to a British newspaper (Daily Mail, I think), Gwyneth Paltrow recently got a tattoo of a little 'C' on her inner right thigh. She got it done at Selfridges Department Store. The tattoo artist spilled the beans and said that when he asked her if it stood for 'Coldplay' she said it was definitely stood for Chris.

sunsun-my bf hates my tattoos, particularly the one on the back of my neck (which, i guess i should have taken his mentioning of that lotion as a hint) But he still came with me to get them, and dutifully sat there and watched. Hes such a good boy. :rotfl:

My boyfriend has a tattoo on his right arm - it's a heart with the name "Sweetie" in the middle. Awww, isn't that cute? I am not Sweetie, by the way. He and "Sweetie" pated ways 10 years ago, but the tattoo remains. It doesn't bother me - I think it's kinda funny :)

Tatooes and initial rings don't make a relationship permanent. I have done some stuff to prove my love but none of it had to do with marking my body in any way

sun sun-my bf was telling me about this stuff that is some kind of lotion that you just rub on your tat (everyday) and within a year it will be gone..never tried it because i love all my tattoos, but its not impossible to get rid of a tattoo anymore. so go for it if you really want one. be warned though that once you get one, you will probably want another one. (when i got my first I swore that it would be my I have four and already have me 5th picked out..just gotta find the time and money to get it.)

I would never get his name tattooed on me. I might have a symbol though, something we both know means I Love You.

LOOK at angelina's breasts! I think she once had implants and maybe got them taken out. She has barely anything now. Interesting.

I agree with Kristin. I love tattoos, but i would never get someones name tattood on me.(unless it was my children) I might get something that reminded me of him...that I could lie to people about if we ever broke up. But tattooing someones name on you is just dumb. (no offense)

If I was married to Antonio Banderas, I would probably have his name on my arm in a little heart too. Not so sure about Billy Bob. I think engagement rings are kind of dumb too, so I don't know if I would ever tattoo someone's name or a band's logo on my arm.

I love tats, I have a bunch and want more. But the only names I will put on my body is my kids. And I would never want anyone else to put my name on them. I think stuff like that is ridiculous. Too corny for me.
