@tampabride1006:  I swear up and down, no matter how solid your relationship is, a tattoo is somehow the nail in the coffin for it. I don’t know anyone who has had a relationship-related tattoo and stayed together, be it 1 month or 10 years.

Yahh…in my single days I met a guy with a ring tattoo at a wedding and never noticed it until later in the night when we were in the elevator going up to my room.  Yah, total scum bag.

Ick I would completely not be okay with it – I really dislike (read: hate) tattoos and I especially cringe at ring tattoos. But my fiance would never want that kind of thing so it would never be a conversation.

But people should do whatever works for their relationship, and if thats a ring tattoo, go for it.

@laurn88:  hahaha… there does seem to be some kind of tattoo-related curse on relationships.  

That aside, I don’t think it’ll stay looking as good as you might be thinking. There’s a lot of wear on fingers, and it won’t look super crisp for long. When I try to decide about a new tattoo or similar choice, I ask myself if there is anyone I could ever meet whom I would be embarrassed to explain it to. If your answer for this question is no, you probably don’t have a problem 🙂

@tampabride1006:  My SO wants that! I think it’s sweet. I will never do it but if he wants to he can( I think we would still get him a ring) Also his parents got that done ( his mom only had 2 other tattoos) and they were together for 37 years ( she passed away 2 years ago) Also our best friends got married at 19 and they got rings tattooed on and they are still together.. 11 years later!

My FI is an electrician so can’t wear a ring at work.  You just gave me a great idea!  Now to convince him!

No, I don’t think that would look good.

@CBetta Bride:  That’s why my SO wants to get a tattoo ring he does construction and would not be able to wear a ring!

@Taeyers:  my FI has a tattoo of a band symbol, and I want one, but I’m almost too afraid we’ll be cursed haha. He keeps assuring me it would be ok because it’s the same tattoo, but not a “couple” tattoo.

I love tatoos in general. I would never get one my self, but I have seen many beautiful woriks of art. However… As said earlier, their does seem to be a tatoo relationship curse and I believe it completely. I have a good friend who is Curently saving up for a wedding ring tatoo removal due to a failed marriage they were together over a decade and now she still has the tatoo no matter what

Ok, I just looked up pictures, and I do have to say that the people who get the infinity symbol (sideways 8) tattooed on their ring fingers are onto a pretty cute idea. I’d do research about how well these tattoos age.

That wouldn’t work for me. Then again, I’m not really a fan of tattoos.
