Diamonds are forever… but not as forever as TATTOOS. How about getting your engagement ring tattooed?? Sounds amazing….check out!
Among the few permanent things in this world… getting inked is one. Maybe that’s reason why tattoos have become the new trend replacing those expensive diamond rings. These days more and more couples are choosing to commemorate their engagements and even weddings with matching inks.
According to the New York Times, in the year 2012, couples spent about $4,000 on engagement rings, plus an additional of $1,500 on their wedding bands. Moreover, The Knot’s annual survey reported that the amount spent on engagement rings had overwhelmingly increased to an average of $5,855 in the year 2014. Hence it is expected that an engagement or wedding tattoo might be the trendy way to express your love for one another without the need to break the bank.
Now what’s so good about these tats? The best part is that you’re completely in control!!! This means that they can be as bold or minimalistic as your choice. In addition, getting tattoos in place of those over-expensive diamond rings is that you can design them on your own, making a one-of-a-kind statement, which bonds you to each other more than a jewelry piece can.
