What a load of nonsense...
She got a tattoo because she likes the way it looks, not to wilfully upset her husband... you're twisting words making the situation out to be something it isn't.
She wanted a tattoo, he didn't like tattoo's, but she got one anyway thinking he'd get used to it, and gave him plenty of time to make an explicit objection to her going out and finally getting one... but he kept silent. Now that it's there he's making a big fuss about it, and being unreasonably uncompromising about it.
HE IS acting immature about it... asking to cover it up when they go on vacation to a sunny location? What kind of nonsense it's that?! To me this sounds like he's actually ASHAMED that his wife has a tattoo and so he's asking her to cover it up so no one else would see... which is just wrong on so many levels.
