Adele Tattoos Baby's Initial Behind Ear, But Will She Regret It? (PHOTO)

Awww! 106

adele tattooHands down, the best accessory sported by any lady walking the red carpet at the Grammys last night was Adele's tattoo. The new mom wore her hair up for the awards show, letting a tasteful, itty-bitty cursive "A" that's been inked behind her ear make its debut. The initial (we're fairly certain) is in honor of her son, who was born this past October, and it confirms, once and for all, her child's name: Angelo.

Parents wearing nameplates, pendants, rings, etc. with their kids' names on them seems to be a new trend -- a trend I've fully embraced, being that I wear a necklace with my daughter's name on it every day. But how do we feel about tattooing our baby's names on ourselves?

Personally, I love it. I haven't gotten a tattoo of my baby's name, because, well, I'm sort of a wuss, and because I can't quite figure out if it's my style or not, but I've urged my husband on numerous occasions to get our child's name inked somewhere on his body. He's into it. But it's one of those things we sometimes talk about and are like, "Oh, yeah, that's a great idea, we should totally do that," and then look at something shiny and completely forget about. My father has my and my sister's names tattooed on his arm, and I've always found it sweet. It's sort of like an, "Aw, you'd do that for me?" kind of thing.

There are people out there who've gotten some idiotic tattoos. I mean, really idiotic tattoos. And they eventually wind up regretting it. But you will never, ever in a million years regret getting a tattoo of your child's name. It's one of the few "foolproof inks" out there. And when it's done as classily as Adele's, it may even inspire you to do it again.

(Have a baby, that is -- but, two tattoos are cool, too!)

Do you have your kids' names tattooed on you?

There's a big difference between an initial and a full name.    You could make up all sorts of stuff about what an initial stands for as your feelings change.   

This is pretty low risk tatoo.    It's can be covered easily in situations where any tatoo might be perceived negatively and there's little to no danger that it'll ever remind you of something you regret.

"Itty-bitty?". As far as letters go, I would not consider that itty-bitty.

I plan on a tattoo on my forearm with my childrens' names outside of a big heart with 3 smaller hearts attached. The big heart will be yellow topaz, my birthstone. The 1st small heart will be emerald green, the 2nd will be ruby red and the 3rd will be sapphire blue. My babies' birthstones.

I'm with Sofia. If you want a tattoo and later regret it, it's usually because it was something STOOOPID to have permanently inked on your SKIN to begin with. A man's name, a band name, a corporate logo, a cartoon character... These are regrettable. Your child's name? No. What, are you gonna break up with your kid and have someone else's name put there?

I have my daughter's name, footprint and dob tattooed on my back, and plan to do the same for all children I have.  I also have my dad's name along with his and my favorite flowers (trilliums and calla lilies).  There is no way I could ever regret tattooing my daughter's name.  My personal rule for name tattoos is it must be one of the following: a memorial for someone important to you who has passed, a parental figure, or a child.

Yes, I have my son's name tattooed on me for 12 yrs and would never ever regret it!!!!!

I also have a tattoo for my brother who passed away 10 yrs ago and will never regret that one either ;-)

Elizabeth Whitehill

there should be no reason she would regret that. i plan on getting my 2 boys names and dates of birth on me

Marie Robertson

I have my son's full name on my forearm and I plan on getting my daughter's whole name on my other forearm. I've wanted a tattoo for some time but I didn't want to get one until I had something really meaningful to tattoo on my body.
