Love tattoos

It's the ultimate illustration of commitment.

No, I'm not referring to marital vows. I'm talking about tattooing your partner's name on your favorite extremity.

Because nothing says "I love you" like body art that jeopardizes your odds of snagging a classy job.

Joining the his and hers tattoo pack? Newlyweds Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom.

Don't worry, critics aren't interpreting their new ink as a sign of relationship longevity.

A common response: "Whatever. It's so easy to remove tattoos now."

To some extent, they're right.

Tattoos, once regarded as the ultimate emblem of permanence, are now accompanied by images of laser removal systems and eraser balms.

So tell me: Have his and hers tattoos lost their romantic luster?
