He probably feels it is too expensive to get laser treatment for tattoo removal, also it is painful. Try asking if he will get the name filled in with color in the same color as the name to hide it? Tattoo artists are creative, they could do something with it and make into a completely different thing. Or he can always get a strike-through with the new wife's name above the old one. ;) Seriously though, any method of removal (traditional invasive or non-invasive laser procedures) are very painful and expensive. I'm sure he figures he can be spending that money better towards his family than getting someone's name removed from his body. Maybe if he investigates more about tattoo removal he might feel more comfortable. If it's just a name, it can't be too large, so it may not be as expensive or painful as he expects.

Is it good if the husband has a dragon tattoo and the wife has a Phoenix tattoo?

The dragon and the phoenix as a pair originated in ancient China. The dragon symbolized the Emperor, and the phoenix symbolized the Empress. Over time, they have become known as symbols of the masculine (the dragon) and the feminine (the phoenix). I would say it would be very appropriate for a husband and wife to get tattoos of each animal, respectively, because of the symbolism of them. Also, when done by a masterful tattoo artist, dragons and phoenixes have a very strong and beautiful aesthetic. Actually, this is a tattoo concept that I thought of when I spent some time in China, but it can't be manifested yet, because I lack a husband...

The thinners will cause more bleeding and could cause the ink to be pushed out some causing the tattoo to look faded . It would be best to check with your doctor
