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 Fiance 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 Fiance works with his hands a lot(he likely deals with a lot of chemicals/fluids/grease) his may fade faster than normal.

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!
