When I asked her to hold my hand
She told me to take that ink like a man
Tattoos hurt pretty bad and he asked her to help him through the pain but she told him to “take it like a man” meaning man up and handle the pain.
This line shows that she’s not making the love any easier, & letting him know his place in the relationship. She wants to be the man in the relationship.
