Like it or not, tattoos are on the rise! Once reserved for the few who dared, tattoos have become the latest must have for everyone from proud parents to teachers. Although this is hardly surprising news, it is surprising that there are so many people opting to display their tattoos proudly where they were once frowned upon.
Couples Tattoos – Having a tattoo of one another’s name is hardly enough. Couples are having wedding bands, portraits, or half of a verse tattooed, with the other half of the verse tattooed on the other person. They are being labeled adorable by some, reckless by others. Of course they can always be modified…. just ask Angelina Jolie.
White Ink Tattoos – For those who prefer a more subtle approach you can select a white ink tattoo. Rather than pure white, the tattoo shows up translucent so on lighter skin it is not as visible but on darker skin is quite striking. You can thank Lindsay Lohan for starting this trend!
It takes a minimum of two weeks for a tattoo to heal completely and some sources suggest a month as an appropriate healing period. If you plan to have a tattoo before your wedding, make sure you do it well in advance of the wedding.
