Adventurous couples are opting for the wedding ring that you know will never come off or get lost - the tattooed wedding ring. Although the practice has been around for centuries, it's newly trendy.

Wedding ring tattoo is a great option for doctors, mechanics and others who can't wear rings while they're working. It's also less expensive - less than $100 a piece, although you'll need to get it touched up as the years go on.

You'll be making some powerful statements to each other and the world at large. Your tattoo will say that you trust enough in the relationship to have a permanent symbol of it on your body. You'll also be showing that marriage doesn't mean that you're too conservative to be inked.

The disadvantage of course is that it will never come off. No matter how secure you feel in your relationship now, consider carefully how you'll feel if the relationship dissolves but the tattoo doesn't. You'll have to be willing to live with the ring, go through painful and expensive tattoo removal, or finding a way to modify the design.

If you like the idea of a tattooed wedding ring, but are worried about the downsides, another alternative is to get a silver or platinum ring custom made with a tattoo on your fiance's body. It will have some of the same edginess and uniqueness yet will be less permanent.
