Mailbag: A Vasectomy For A Tattoo?

Sara: My feelings on tattoos are entirely neutral. … I told my husband that if he felt so bold as to have a vasectomy (you could freeze sperm samples in case you ever wanted kids, after all), I would respond in kind by having his name tattooed on me. Is that romantic or what?

DFO: I was about to shut down the computer when I read this one. A tattoo for a vasectomy? For some reason, that doesn’t seem enough, particularly when you’re banking on frozen sperm to carry on the family name. Then, I’m old-fashioned. How about the rest of you HBOers out there? It’s after hours. Would you undergo the Big V to be immortalized in a tattoo worn proudly by your significant other?
