#1 Key To Her Heart
Itâ€™s an oldie but a goodie! The idea of having the key to someoneâ€™s heart has been around for a long time (even before Shakespeareâ€™s time!), however it is one that rings true with a lot of people. We love the romantic notion as an actual wedding band tattoo design, and think that this couple made a very good decision. Hopefully, theyâ€™ll be showing it off for years to come!
#2 Ace Of Spades
Some couples arenâ€™t really huge fans of large or over-the-top wedding band tattoos, so they opt for something smaller and more simple. These playing cards inspired designs pictured are super simple, yet extremely pleasing on the eye! We also love how the female version of the tattoo is not in the traditional wedding band position â€“ it is closer to her finger nail. This is a unique and quirky spin on the classic wedding band tattoo choice, and opting for symbols that represent a heart shape is particularly clever.
#3 The Singer & The Songstress
Calling all musician couples â€“ this is the wedding band tattoo for you! Itâ€™s nice to bond with loved ones over shared interests, and you can definitely tell that this couple love music so much that they decided to get music notes tattooed to their wedding finger. Itâ€™s important that wedding band tattoos look good, but more importantly, that they incorporate something special about the relationship. Who knew such a simple design could be so effective?
#4 Skeletons In The Closet
Before you get married, itâ€™s probably a good time to release any skeletons youâ€™ve had hanging in your closet â€“ in other words, itâ€™s time to confess to any lingering secrets. This couple have decided to tattoo a skull on their fingers in the place of wedding bands, perhaps as a symbol of honesty, and decoration too. We love the detailed designs of these skulls, and although they may be a little freaky, we think the tattoo artist did a great job. Besides, perhaps skulls means something personal to this couple.
#5 Better Than A Kiss?
For all of you Peter Pan fans out there, you will surely understand the significance of an acorn and a thimble, also known as â€˜kissesâ€™ to both Wendy and Peter Pan. For those of you who are a little unfamiliar, all you need to know is that Peter Pan gave Wendy an acorn necklace, which saved an arrow being shot through her chest, and Wendy had given Peter the gift of a thimble â€“ an object of her love for him. The romantic, and child-like idea behind this wedding band tattoo is truly touching!
#6 Total Eclipse
For some celestial souls out there, the phases of the moons play a significant role in their daily life. As a wedding band tattoo design, this tattoo could also symbolize eternity, as the moon constantly shifts and changes, however it is a constant in our lives. We also love how the full moon is placed in the center of the finger, as though to substitute the gem of a ring. This wedding band tattoo design is definitely one for astrology-loving couples!
#7 3D Illusion
We think this wedding band tattoo is extremely impressive, especially because it creates the illusion of an actual three-dimensional ring. This couple has also chosen the common wedding band tattoo concept of marking a significant date, such as their wedding date, date they first met, date they got the tattoos etc. However, the real twist here is the way in which the Roman Numerals have been incorporated into more of a traditional silver ring design.
#8 What A Hoot!
Our favorite wedding band tattoos are the ones that have been really thought-out. For example, itâ€™s one thing to get matching tattoos, but to get two different tattoos that somehow link in or relate to one another is much cooler. The couple pictured may have chosen an owl and a tree for many reasons â€“ perhaps it relates to a pet name, or even to when they first met? Whatever the back story, we think this wedding band tattoo is a real â€˜hootâ€™!
#9 Itâ€™s All About The Initials
Forget diamond rings and gold bands, some couples would prefer to substitute such a tradition with carefully tattooed initials of their loved one! This couple has opted for the common first letter only version – after all, they (most likely) share the same last name now. What really sets this one apart from the other initial wedding band tattoos though, is the awesome design of the letters. These really are tattoos to show off!
#10 Joining Hearts
When you think about the concept of a wedding, you think of two people coming together to officially celebrate their love for one another. Therefore, this wedding band tattoo feels very fitting for the occasion. While the tattoo may look a little strange if it is not extended around to the front of the finger, we think it is an awesome idea, and it reminds us of â€˜best friends foreverâ€™ joining heart pendants! This wedding band tattoo design is perfect for the couple who loves quirky things â€“ especially the idea of a jigsaw puzzle-esque tattoo!
