I wanted to get a tattoo but Fiance said no.  He’s been divorced before (I have never been married) so he is more “practical” about something like that.

Sigh.  I totally envy your tattoo.

…you could always say “let me see your tattoo!’

your wedding day shouldn’t be too long to wait for, compared to the rest of your life… try not to focus on it when you feel a twinge of envy for something a friend has that you don’t, none of us can “have it all”. Of course if you really want an engagement ring too, just talk with him about it.

@MzBeautifulButterfly:  

im getting a huge back piece for the wedding day as my “wedding ring” that way it could show on the wedding day ^-^ i find myself sometimes looking at other womens rings on here and get a bit jealous. but honestly big shiny diamonds are sooo not my style. And if i had the ring i want i dont think anyone else would like it. it just seems like your feelig left out, if more people got tattoos or cared for them you wouldnt be feeling so. 

 

if a tattoo is what you really wanted then be proud of it ^-^

@MzBeautifulButterfly:  I love tattoos! I say embrace your uniqueness in not having a ring. Who cares about what everyone else is doing. That way when your wedding day comes and you get your wedding ring it will be that much more meaningful to you 🙂

I think tattoos can be cute. Yours are really personal 🙂 If you want a ring and it’s in budget, I don’t think there’s harm in bringing it up, though. It’s understandable to want a sign that’s a little more obvious that you’re engaged, but I don’t think it’s necessary. Tattoos are a sign of a huge commitment…I mean you can take rings off.

My Fiance have been together for forever. He gave me 2 promise rings when we were young (14&15 yrs old). Later we decided to get ring tattoos. We both loved the idea of having something permanent.  Only just this passed may did i get an e-ring.  Prior to that i only had my tattoo to show off. Now, mind you people generally never asked to see my ring, i guess because they saw the tattoo instead. Weve been to gether for 22 yrs.  

i think the idea of tattoos are great however i wont lie, it sure was nice to get a ring – and im not even a big bling bling kind gal.

I would just wait until the wedding and get a spectacularly blinged out wedding ring.

If you really want a ring you can get a small one to wear now (but ask your Fiance to make sure his feelings wouldn’t be hurt by this). Otherwise, you’re just going to have to explain it.
