There are important things to consider before you decide to get a tattoo on your wedding ring. A tattoo is almost permanent.


A wedding ring tattoo has many benefits:

  • You can’t lose a tattoo. This is a crucial factor for people who lose their keys, toothbrush, and jewelry all the time.
  • It will be comfortable to wear no matter what your occupation is. It is dangerous or impossible for many professions, such as healthcare, construction, and manufacturing, to wear your wedding rings while working. A tattoo’s beauty is its ability to be worn at all times.
  • It is more affordable. According to the Brides’ American Wedding Study, in 2020, engagement rings cost couples an average of $3756 You could spend between $50 and $300 depending on the artist and tattoo design.

Never Miss:

  • This is a unique way to express your love. There are no two tattoos the same, so this is a trendy way to express your love.
  • You can still wear your ring when you want. Your engagement ring can be worn over your tattoo for special occasions and whenever you wish. You have the freedom that a tattoo ring gives you, which is something you won’t get with a traditional band.


You should consider the following cons to ring tattoos:

  • It is possible for the ink to become brittle or even blow out. Ring finger tattoos can blur or blow out. Your skin’s reaction to tattoo ink can be very individual. We recommend that you get a tattoo done elsewhere before you commit to a wedding ring tattoo. It is also a good idea to find an artist with experience in tattooing wedding rings and who can show you their portfolio. To see if the style suits you, make sure you look at previous work. It is better to hire someone who has experience, as an inexperienced artist can create blurred images and blowouts.
  • As with all tattoos, it will fade. Hand tattoos and other body parts that are exposed to the sun fade more quickly. You can always have it retouched.
  • Tattoos can hurt. Some tattoos on fingers and hands can be more painful than others. Because fingers are thinner, the pain can be more severe.
