In women it is generally seen that they may have the name of their partners tattooed by itself or along with their own. These will be further embellished with heart symbols or flowers.
Women often go for these name tattoos on areas like the stomach or the lower back. Unlike men who go for the last name, women tend to go for the first name. Plus they also like to add cute little symbols that mean a lot to them.
Since each person has a distinct name and the choice to get it tattooed in a unique style offers you the chance to have personalized tattoo, it is a good idea as far as tattoo designs go. You can do some research and come up with your name in other languages to give it a new twist.
