I have seen a lot of debate over mens rings… My bf and I have our rings picked out, but he is a maintenance man/ machinest, which means it is dangerous for him to wear a ring at work. I have a 1.5 c black diamond e-ring and our wedding bands are matching tungsten. We have both been married in the past and there is a clear understanding that when we wed, there will be no divorce. We have decided to get matching ring tattoos so regardless of if we have our rings on, we will always have our connection. Opinions ladies???

I’m personally not a fan of tattoos at all, but I do understand the appeal and I think it’s a nice sentiment!

Its a nice idea but they can wear away and need to be redone.

Taking care of a tattoo on your finger is a pain in the ass, because you come into contact with a whole bunch of stuff! I think it’s a great idea but be aware of the amount of care the tattoo will need to heal.

I can appreciate body art on other people and have thought about getting something done on myself at different times in my life, but I’ve never seen a ring tattoo I really liked. Honest opinion. Also, I’ve heard they fade a lot faster than tattoos done on other areas of the body and need redone more often.
I wouldn’t suggest it unless you already know you’re a tattoo person and you’re sure that you’ll love having it for the rest of your life.

YUP! I agree with @starla: about the fading part.

I think, for the most people, everybody goes into marriage being madly in love and believing that their relationship is divorce-proof, but unless by saying:
“there is a clear understanding that when we wed, there will be no divorce.”
you literally mean that nothing, even cheating, addiction, and infidelity, might force you to seek a divorce, then I’m not sure a tattoo is something I would get.
As a fellow bride, I know how grim it is to think of these possibilities, but it’s a reality that I’ve been forced to realize since I began my work as a domestic violence advocate. Nobody can ever really know that their marriage is fail-proof unless they’ve made the unhealthy decision that no marital conditions might make them consider divorce.

My FI and I considered getting him a tattoo instead of a ring due to metal allergies. We ended up getting him a ceramic band, but in the end, he didn’t want a tattoo on his hand. What about getting him a chain so he can wear the ring around his neck at work?

Most of the tatoos that I have seen fade really fast. I would think that because your FI works with his hands a lot(he likely deals with a lot of chemicals/fluids/grease) his may fade faster than normal.

I have a good friend that got this done- it faded terribly AND they are divorced. So, ymmv, you know?

I’m a fan of tattoos. I love them if the art is done well.
However, in this case I think it spells doom just like tattooing the name of your beloved on you. It shouldn’t be done and is a bad omen.

I certainly wish you well in your new marriage! But there are a large % of marriages that fail and being married previously actually raises the stakes. My husband does not like to wear a band either but it doesn’t bother me. If you go with the tattoo I hope it isn’t too painful!
