Going one step further than a wedding ring: husband and wife tattoos.
Sometimes, hearing him say “I do” just isn’t quite as satisfying as watching him go under the tattoo needle for you. And express his love through a few quiet whimpers through clenched teeth, manly clenched teeth. Now, you keep the traditional idea of a tattooed wedding ring if you like- but there is a whole host of other couple tattoos out there that are worth taking a look at. Some of them have quite the subtle flare, too.
Or if tattoos aren't really your thing and you don't want the traditional wedding ring, check this out!
Here are 5 Super Cute Tattoos for Couples:
1. Wrist Tattoos
Nice alternative to the ring idea, plus more space = more detail. Assuming you’re planning to forget the most special day of your life, anyway…
2. He’s the Key to Your Lock
Cute, and the basic idea can be customised to meet any couple’s idea of the perfect tattoo design- I did, for example, see a highly colourful number that involved skulls. Many skulls. So, good shout for the couple who want to really show off their creative, couple-y loveliness.
On a similar note:
3. You’re his Queen and he isn’t about to forget it.
4. Two Halves
Like this one. Just make sure, if you go for somewhere like your arms, make sure you guys can line them up properly, and actually touch
(Note how the couple in the photograph went for the opposite arm; keeps the pesky thumb joint from causing mischief and messing up your loved-up and inked-up rep)
With halves and so one you have two options; one, the tattoos can only be fully understood when combined (eg// a sentence from your vows, or the loving apology letter he wrote you when he forgot the laundry one time) or, they can function independently. Keeping the design the same, like the couple below have, mean they don’t look odd apart, but overlap nicely.
5. Deep, meaningful metaphor. Or just an excessive appreciation for avocado.
It’s difficult to know, but we like it anyway. For even more ideas, InkWeddings is well worth a peruse. They’ve got a nice bit of information on tattoos with cultural or historical significance, if you wanted something with a bit of history.
