Traditional wedding rings are just as popular as ever, but despite the sparkle and shine, they can come with several downsides. Besides the obvious potential of losing them, traditional rings can cost more than their weight in gold...or silver. Many couples are opting to go another, more permanent route to symbolize their commitment. Couples who get tattoos instead of wedding rings not only save money, they're investing in something completely permanent. It doesn't get much more romantic than that.
Despite what the jeweler at Jared's may say, the options truly are limitless with wedding band tattoos. While most diamond rings tend to look the same after a while, you can be certain that your tattoo is completely unique. You can design something simple, something completely personal, something geometric, or even script with your names or anniversary date. There isn't a diamond ring in the world with that kind of personality.
Some couples decide to get tattoos as their engagement rings and then opt for traditional bands on their wedding day, while others stick with their tattoos only. Whatever route you decide to go, getting a tattoo as your wedding band is not only romantic, but it's as much of a symbol of your commitment as any diamond would be.
