It takes a lot of time for a person to agree on a tattoo design.
And even when people have found what they like, it's important to remember how permanent it is.
When it comes to getting the name of a loved one tattooed, that's not uncommon.
But one woman has gone above and beyond as she wants to get her pal's baby's name inked before the child is born.
Writing on Reddit, an anonymous woman has shared her concerns for her friend's bizarre idea.
She wrote: "My friend just told me she wants to tattoo the name of my unborn child (due in August)."
When she asked her why she wanted it, her friend told her "it would be fun", especially since the pair never got a tattoo together.
However, the woman claims she was "freaked out" by her mate's decision so she tried to sway her decision.
The mum-to-be added: "She told me that I shouldn't worry because she hasn't finalised the idea and is still saving up for it."
Although she knows it's her body so it's her choice, the woman admits it's "angered" her partner as it's the name after her late dad.

She continued: "I feel like my unborn child is already being claimed."
The woman wrote on the open Reddit forum, asking for other Reddit users for advice on the situation.
Since she came to light about her problem, the post racked up over 1,100 upvotes and 120 comments.
One said: "You're right about her body her choice. You can't stop her. But that's really creepy. It's your child who isn't even born yet."
The user added: "Tell her you think it's disrespectful to your bond with your own child and that she's overstepping boundaries."
Another commented: "Tell her that. Be blunt. 'My child is none of your business. You are not going to have a role in my child's life'.
"'There is absolutely no reason for you to have a tattoo of his name'."
A third suggested: "If nothing works, change the baby name after she does the tattoo so that she doesn't have it tattooed."
