If you’re getting married, you’ve already made a commitment to everlasting love. Why not seal that commitment with a ring tattoo? Many modern couples are opting to tattoo rather than purchase their wedding bands. There are few reasons why this is appealing. For one, a tattoo is much cheaper than a ring, depending on how intricate the design is. Secondly, it’s permanent, so you don’t have to take it off and worry about losing it. Its permanence also has obvious symbolic significance. Finally, tattoos are highly customizable, and a couple can imbue their own style and personality into the designs.
However, ring tattoos are not just for betrothed couples. Anyone who appreciates rings and small tattoos can find a ring tattoo to suit their taste. They can be simple and delicate or large and detailed. They can encircle any finger, or even your toes. If you’re not engaged, however, you may wish to avoid the ring fingers. The tattoos also don’t have to encircle your finger. Some people prefer to tattoo a small design on the front, back, or side of their finger.
A fun way to experiment with ring tattoos is to get a temporary tattoo. Whether or not you’re engaged, temporary ring tattoos can have symbolic significance. They can also serve as a no-fuss accessory and beautifully accentuate other jewelry. Again, you don’t have to worry about taking them off when you wash your hands or go to bed, and you certainly won’t misplace them. Our semi-permanent tattoos are also great for anyone wishing to reduce clutter and waste, since they are made from natural fruit juice. Temporary ring tattoos are also fun for newly engaged couples who don’t want to wear a ring tattoo for life.
If you like rings and tats, consider branching out with a ring tattoo, whether permanent or temporary. Below is a sampling of 15 beautiful ring tattoos for inspiration. A couple of these designs are newly available in our semi-permanent tattoo shop.
