It could be argued that actress Pamela Anderson and rock star Tommy Lee started this trend when they made a trip to the tattoo parlor before their nuptials to get matching tattooed wedding rings. So why can't you? Well, you can, but ring tats have become popular enough that, in the future, people will likely look at your fingers and be able to tell which decade you were married in. The classic way to tie the knot is to exchange rings, but if you must get a tattoo, consider inking your wedding date under your ring finger for a romantic gesture that won't be captured in every photo.
