Two more Friday questions...

I know we've already done the Friday Five but I had a few questions from watching TV last night. I could wait but then I would forget!!

Thank you LA Ink:
If your DH wanted to get a family members face tattooed on his body, would you be okay with this? Is there anyone you would rather him not get tattooed? Is there a place on his body you would rather him not get it?

Thank you King of Queens:
Have you ever forbade your DH from doing something? Has your DH ever forbade you from doing something?

I wouldn't care what DH got tattooed on his body. I have tats and he doesn't have the right to tell me what I can and cannot to with my body, so I don't have the right to tell him what he can and cannot do with his.

And no, neither of us has forbade the other from doing something. Telling a person, "No, you can't do that," only makes a person want to do it more. Besides, DH is an adult; it's not like I have to hold his hand while he crosses the street or that he has to be home before dark. Forbidding an adult is treating him like a child. I'm his wife, not his mother. There are things that I'd rather he not do, but I can't stop him from doing something. If he does something that I'm not happy with then he has to deal with the consequences of his actions.

*As long as it was in a place that I didn't have to see, I would be okay with it. The thought of having sex with his mom or grandmother inked on his pec would weird me out too much, LOL.

Have you ever forbade your DH from doing something? Has your DH ever forbade you from doing something?
*Not that I can think of on my end. The only thing I can think of is that I don't want our kids alone with certain people when they are younger and he feels the same way about other people but that's about as close as it gets. He has made it known he doesn't want me to be alone in a room with his dad or brother or without him there. His dad was abusive growing up and DH doesn't think I am mean enough to hurt his dad if he were to hurt me physically. He feels so strongly about it I haven't questioned it and there hasn't been an opportunity to be alone with either of them.

My husband was in the Marines when he was 18yrs old.

I actually watched part of an LA Ink repeat last night. The musician guy got the portrait of his grandma on his chest. I would be okay if my DH wanted to get a family member tattooed on his body. (I don't know if that's because there is no one in his family he would want on his body - except now for our son).

I don't think I've ever forbade DH from doing anything. Probably because I know that would be futile. He may have forbade me from doing something, but at the moment I couldn't think of what. But if he was really serious about something I would probably heed him just to avoid the drama!

Good questions!

If my husband wanted to tattoo his face, I would be very angry but of course, it's his body... I suppose there are some things he could tattoo onto his face that I would understand-like people we've both known and lost. I would be sad to see him tattoo his face but then again, I'd understand that this would be his way of mourning and I would then see it as something that binds us together. But if it's something silly like-"motorcycle madness", I'd be angry.

I cannot forbid my husband from doing something but I did tell him that if he put his long beautiful hair into dreadlocks, I would be VERY DISAPPOINTED and may not have sex with him for a long time (although, truth be known, I normally don't withhold sex). I don't think he ever forbade me from doing anything (that I remember). I know that he'd prefer that I don't do certain things-like go to the pub without him or walk downtown at night.

Ask anything anytime :)

Well as much as I wouldn't want him to ..
I guess it's his body so he can do what he wants.
That being said we may discuss it ..
Ultimately it's his choice


Thank you King of Queens:
Have you ever forbade your DH from doing something? Has your DH ever forbade you from doing something?
No never .. we would discuss, perhaps suggest, offer thoughts.
Never forbade though

Great questions .. thanks for asking :)

Is there a place on his body you would rather him not get it? Yea, I guess so, unless it was his mom LOL. I'd rather his get his tattoos where they are easily hideable, only for career reasons though.. He already has 2, 1 on his back and 1 on his upper arm.


Thank you King of Queens:
Have you ever forbade your DH from doing something? Has your DH ever forbade you from doing something? I've never forbade him from doing something, I might have request/ said I didn't like something but nothing major ever really. Same with DH asking me not to do something.

>>Yeah - driving his Harley a long distance - he already had one accident (not his fault). I told him if I ever get a call from the Sheriff that you are in the hospital 300mi away and killed - I'll kill you again.<<

A motorcycle was the cause of me asking this question. In the show, the wife forbade the husband to get a motorcycle because of the safety issue, in front of his friends and he turned around and bought one. So then she started smoking (I am guessing he forbade her to do that or made her stop- not sure). He ended up hating the motorcycle and in the end got rid of it.
