Some might say that one of the biggest decisions in getting married are the rings you pick out. They're the visual manifestation of your commitment after all, so it's not hard to see why so many couples take their wedding rings so seriously. Yet the process can be overwhelming, obnoxious, and most importantly: expensive. At the end of the day, rings are just jewelry. Your rings can get lost, stolen, or your kid or dog may even swallow them (seriously, babies and dogs will put literally anything in their mouths, your wedding rings are no exception.)
As the world changes and society's perception of body modifications like tattoos and piercings are becoming increasingly less taboo and leading to much less social ostracizing, some couples have really taken the whole physical manifestation of your commitment up a notch. Namely, whether they buy and wear rings or not, they're also doing one better: couples tattoos.
In fact, we were able to find some of the best examples out there currently and we've slapped them all together to inspire you. This way, you'll stress less about hovering over your dog, waiting for him to poop out that 14k solid gold band, and instead you can shrug it off and know, "my ink says it all, anyway!"
This simple tattoo of their wedding date rests perfectly near their wedding bands. On or off, their love is right there to remind them.
