Weddings just aren’t traditional any longer. People are searching for new ways of making their weddings and marriages special. They aren’t happy with just a traditional look that is too boring for them. They want the latest and coolest trends that hit the wedding scene. What the modern engaged couple wants is a unique symbol in which they can express their love for one another. Or maybe some people just want to get away from the expense involved in purchasing wedding bands. On average, most people spend around $5000 on an engagement ring alone. That doesn’t include the wedding band or the groom’s band. Of course, that’s nothing compared to the actual wedding, but the rings can certainly add to the expense.

Many couples just want a sign of their union as well; they want to avoid the commercialism of marriage and get down to what really matters. Many couples are deciding not to get rings at all and going for the most non-traditional approach to wedding bands.

Marriage is supposed to be a lifetime event, the ultimate commitment between two people. Many couples want to get a reminder of their love that is a little more permanent than the ring on their finger. There are many great tattoo ideas that a couple can get that can either replace a wedding band or just go underneath one. There are bands that don’t resemble a ring at all and there are even Celtic-style tattoo bands. You can get a wedding ring tattoo in virtually any shape or style.

Many celebrities including Beyonce and Jay-Z have sealed their marriage with wedding band tattoos. It’s brought about a lot of popularity to the idea. Wedding band tattoos are forever, so make sure that you get something that you are in love with even if it is going underneath the band.

There are many new traditions that are popping up on the wedding scene these days such as trash the dress, honeymoon registries and now wedding tattoos. If you want to get away form the traditional side of things, then getting permanent wedding rings is a great non-traditional element.

Not only will you be forever linked but you can also be forever inked to one another. If you want something different to mark your marriage, then throw away those traditions and get a wedding band tattoo. Below are 76 of the Most Inventive Wedding Band Tattoo Designs:
