@katiedee: it usually takes about a week or so. It will probably be faster since it’s not going to be a lot of work and it’s a small area. We are doing it about two weeks before the wedding. We aren’t doing full rings though. We are doing our initials on the backs of our ring fingers and have some wording in the ceremony about it. 

P.S. I would love to have a tattoo artist at our wedding! I know more than several of our friends would be up to getting work done! lol

@katiedee:

no you should def not feel bad about not getting a tatoo, it’s your body!

I think the idea of chepo rings is good since it seems like you want the symbolism.

My fiance doesn’t like jewelry, doesn’t want to wear a ring, & will be getting a ring tattoo as well, but like you I wanted him to have something to get married with. So we’re getting a $50 black titanium band for the ceremony (and I want those cool ring pics damn it!). Are you wearing a ring at all? I thought about getting a tat too, but I actually WANT to wear my ring so I don’t see the point…. I think we’ll actually get his ring tat on our honeymoon together 🙂

we thought about doing this and haven’t ruled it out completely. we would wait until after the ceremony to get it done though and buy a cheap ring for the exchange/to wear around certain family members.

be sure to get a fairly simple design. finger tattoos are prone to running over time, especially on the underside. it will need retouching from time to time.
