Is it wrong to get a small tattoo of Jesus over your heart?

I was referencing a book entitled the Power Of His Name, where two saints were mentioned who had Jesus’ name branded over their hearts. In modern day times, we would tattooe this remembrance over our hearts. Is there anything wrong with this practice, and why if so, would it not be permissible? Thank you, MW
