You said you'd never tell!
In reply to OP: People will always tell you to think twice when it comes to getting a name for a tattoo because it is such a personal thing, but then aren't all tattoos supposed to be personal and mean something to the person who has it? If Ryan had such a positive impact on your life and this is how you want to show your respect then that's fine and it shouldn't matter what anyone else thinks. But on that note, maybe if you're asking for people to give their opinion it means you're not 100% sure and with a tattoo I think you should be certain, without a doubt, that you want it. If you do get it done, make sure you post up a pic. =]
