    I personally would have it removed and maybe get it some place else.  Personally, I’m just not a fan of tattoos on hands.

    I voted to remove it after reading the short tale, but after reading the long one, I have a different thought.  What about moving your e-ring?  Lots of people wear it on their right hands.  And you could still wear a band on your left hand, and I think it would make it more obvious that you have a tattoo and not an ink stain.  Your e-ring ISN’T permanent and can be moved around, but your tattoo is permanent (well, sans the cost and pain of removal). 

    It just seems to me (who does not have a tattoo and isn’t very religious) that this tattoo REALLY means something to you, and yes, I’m sure your wedding and Fiance also REALLY mean something to you, but you can break tradition a little bit with the ring and that doesn’t make it mean less.

    Just throwing another idea in the ring, heh 🙂

    @littlemissmango:  Laser tattoo removal has come a LONG way, especially within the last 4-5 years.  I suspect a tattoo of that size and pigment should only cost a couple hundred dollars and take 2-3 treatments to remove.  We have seen the best results with patients who use newer lasers, and Hoya Con Bio lasers is a good brand to defer to.

    Of course if you’re just looking to temporarily cover your tattoo with temporary tattoo cover up make up I encourage you to check out Ferbs Cosmetics at http://www.FerbsCosmetics.com.  Our make up is formulated much thicker than an average concealer which makes it faster to dry and takes less applications.  

    Hope it helps!

    I also vote to remove it — I like the story but I think the ring and tattoo would look better each in their own place instead of superimposed. Thanks for being so honest with the hive!!

    If you are truly considering removal I have heard of WreckingBall Cream…look it up! I think it would do well for your small tattoo. =] 

    But I am a fellow Tattoo’d bride…and I think it may be hard for others to understand why we may do anything, let alone tattoo something permanently onto our bodies for the rest of our lives. But I believe it becomes apart of us, and then it becomes a beautiful piece of you that you get to share, and in turn talk about your dear friend!

    I have a similar story about my back tattoo…my whole back is a set of angel wings…and MANY ask and sometimes I share my story and sometimes I dont! And I’ll admit it, I try on a super cute top and think “Dam this tatoo”  lol but most of the time I forget its even there, but when I get a glimpse or shot of it, it always makes me smile! But on the other side of the fence my mom wants me to have it removed eventually, she has requested that I have it covered for the wedding, and its killing me! But I have to understand, she hasn’t experienced what I have and why I did what I did. And thats ok, she doesnt have to! And I still am hoping and praying she comes around, I understand her conservative old-school modesty but I am not afraid nor shamed of who I am or what I have experienced! 

    (Sorry this ended up so long!) But best of Luck, just do whats right for YOU!

    What if you get two wedding bands, one for the top and one for the bottom?  This will prolly cover the tattoo and you really need to think about what your ering (temp) will look like with the wedding bands (how you will wear it long term)

    I voted keep it. You’re tattoo has a story. Stories aren’t always pretty, or the most suitable, but they are real; and that reality is something you should keep. Stay married to God, and your husband.

    I voted to have it removed and then moved to a different location. If you feel self conscious about it, then it might need to be moved. I love the story behind it but you really need to do whats best for you.
