Some people go for tattooed wedding rings just to be modern or different from others. Some people opt for these type wedding rings as a placeholder until they can afford a real ring. Some others rebel against actual rings altogether, using tattoos as an alternative in lieu of diamond rings.

Choosing a tattooed wedding ring:
Tattooed rings are much more a serious commitment and the selection of tattoo is a careful process. The tattooed wedding rings should be selected with great care as once selected cannot be changed according to the change in taste often. There are so many options in designs to choose from like the literal option of getting a ring design tattooed on their fingers, the first name, the nick name, initials of their loved ones, an image with great sentimental value, and the date on which they met or any secret code only the couples can understand.
The disadvantage of tattooed wedding bands is it never goes off and if the relationship dissolves, it's mentally and emotionally painful to live with the ring and physically painful to get rid of it. There are means and ways to get rid of these tattoos.
Standard laser tattoo removal ranges from $1,500 to $3000 and can take up to two years. According to Tattoo artist Lisa Fasula, there was a great increase in tattooed wedding rings few years ago and now there is a great increase in tattoo erasing as the relationships ended.
