10 Great Wedding and Engagement Ring Tattoo Ideas
So You're Considering Getting a Wedding Ring Tattoo?
So, you want to have a wedding ring but not worry about losing it? Maybe your work doesn't allow jewelry, or maybe you just want to be different. No matter why you are considering it, make sure you get informed before you get inked.
Just like with any other tattoo, you need to make sure you get a competent tattoo artist. Just because your artist has done a couple means nothing. Make sure they have several pictures of their work on fingers and knuckles.
You should not get your tattoo done on the day of your wedding if you plan on going on a honeymoon right after. New tattoos do not like chlorine and sun. So, it is best to wait until later to get inked.
Ideas For Wedding Ring Tattoos
Here are just a few ideas to get you started if you are considering a wedding ring or engagement ring tattoo. Naturally, if you are wanting something more original you will either need to design them yourself or pay someone else to design them for you.
Getting the perfect wedding ring tattoo is not only a big commitment, but there is also a lot of other thought that must go into it. After all, this piece of art will be on your hand for the rest of your life! So take the time to look at all of the different options you have.
Things to consider before getting a wedding ring tattoo:
- Your hands are exposed more than any other part of your body.
- You will have to have your wedding ring tattoo touched up every couple of years.
- Your hands will change over the years.
- Do you work in a profession that requires the use of your hands a lot, such as manual labor?
Remember to take those things into consideration when picking the perfect wedding ring tattoo.
1. Curvy Wedding Ring Tattoo
This cute curvy design is one of my favorites. It isn't too masculine or feminine, which makes it perfect for almost any couple.
2. Jagged Spiral Wedding or Engagement Tattoo
This spiral design definitely has a unique look for those not looking for the basic ring look.
3. Celtic Knot Wedding Ring Tattoo
While Celtic tattoos are very popular right now, not everyone should get one. These look best in large, bold sizes. If made small, they will blur.
4. Engagement Ring Tattoo
This is definitely not my first choice, but I guess this takes care of the engagement ring! This is a large stone tattoo that takes up a lot of space on that part of the finger and bluntly looks like it was done by an amateur. It is a great idea if one could get a great tattoo artist to do it.
5. Red Heart and Wings Wedding Ring Tattoo
This would be a great look for a tattoo artist or biker or just someone who wants something a little more out there.
6. Basic Black Wedding Ring Tattoo
This is for those who value the simple look. Simple matching bands. This also works well if you ever have a job that doesn't allow tattoos. Just cover it up with a real ring.
7. Heart Tattoo Ring
This is a basic heart ring and can stay simple or be colored in. If you are feeling super committed, you can add your partner's initials in the middle.
8. Tattoo on Ring Finger and Real Ring on Middle Finger
Apparently wearing the wedding ring on the middle finger while having the tattoo ring on the ring finger is becoming the new fad.
9. Basic Wedding Ring Tattoo With Initial
A nice basic ring with your partners initial above your knuckle. This screams serious commitment!
10. Roman Wedding Rings
These are roman numbers for the date of marriage. As long as you know roman numbers you won't have to worry about forgetting your anniversary!
