A Sense of Permanence

It's finally happened.  The Big One.  The thing I've been waiting for since getting engaged.

No, silly, we don't have a date yet, but...

I got a ring tan!

 It's hard to see in the picture, but I swear it's more definite in person.

Haha, all right, I'm probably the only person alive who's excited about this, but hear me out.  Ever since getting my engagment ring, I've wanted some ring-shaped tan lines.  It just feels more permanent that way, like having my ring basically engraved in my skin makes me more of a bride or something.  I know it's silly, but I'm excited about it anyway.

While we're on the subject of permanent rings, I thought I'd share some other couples who have forever relationships with their rings.

Wedding Ring Tattoos!

I think wedding ring tattoos are BAD ASS!  I mean, nothing really says forever like writing it on your finger in permanent ink, right?  And it would be so much less of a hassle to never have to take the ring off or worry about losing it, but people would still always know that you're married.  I'm not really cool enough to pull this off, and it definitely would not work for Daniel, but I think it's a great idea.

 This is my favorite.  They tattooed each other's names on their fingers.

Would you ever consider making your wedding ring a little more permanent?  Would you keep it simple or do a cool design or something else unique?


  1. I think wedding ring tattoos are cool too. I would totally get one if Dave were down but he's not :(

  2. I love the idea of ring tattoos but my fear of pain and needles would prevent me from following through. Still think the idea rocks though.

  3. That is such a cute idea. My guy and I are getting tattoos done to signify the year of our wedding, but can't decided on designs yet. They'll be on our lower backs though so they're not obvious when we old and wrinkly!!!
    ps. I got sooo excited when I got a ring tan line when we were on our honeymoon!! xx
