Man Gets Back Tattoo Of Girlfriend's Name After Just Six Months Of Dating
| Last updated
A hopeless romantic has shocked social media users after revealing the massive tattoo he got of his girlfriend's name after the couple had only been dating for six months.
Key Matthews, from Shropshire, spent a handsome £110 ($140) to get his new partner Elisha's name inked on his back.
Sharing the results to TikTok, people had mixed reactions to Matthews' gesture.
For Matthews, it was go big or go home, literally.
He said: "I have quite a big back and thought it would look silly as a little farty thing so I thought 'go big or go home'."
Well, he certainly went big.
While Matthews is 'really happy' with the results, his parents needed some convincing.
He said: "My mum and dad said the obvious reactions like 'no offence but what if you did split up'.
"My dad has a tattoo of my mum's name and they have been together 20 years."
Elisha, however, loved the tattoo, and she even got one for Key too.
Though if they do break up, she just needs to get 'lock and' tattooed above it and it'll just look like a deep, meaningful quote.
Elisha said of the impulsive inking: "I wasn't allowed in with him when he had it done.
"I knew it was going to be big but seeing it swollen fresh out of the studio it was a shock and obviously mine isn't even half the size of that.
"I don't think it's strengthened our relationship. We're a strong couple regardless but quite impulsive at times. We have similar interests and like our tattoos."
She then added that the TikTok video of their experience did better than expected, it reached over a million views and had 'blown up [their] phones in 24 hours.'
However, not everyone was supportive of the gesture, with users writing in response: "Oh he'll regret that."
Another added: "Let's hope they don't split up."
Elisha said: "We expected the backlash. It's known in this day and age that you are always going to get trolls. Everyone hides behind a screen and for some reason thinks it's okay to post harsh comments.
"We don't take it seriously. We're happy and they must not be as they've gone through other videos and commented about us on them too.
"It's really quite mad."
Key chimed in too, saying: "I'm quite a strong character and don't take social media and opinions of others to heart.
"I just laugh it off."
Some users were supportive, however, with one saying: "Yeah he's the one sis," and another adding: "Love it."
And, you know what, we wish them all the best.
