Was reading in Modern Wedding where people are doing wedding ring piercing on their finger. Well that's one sure way of never losing your wedding ring. Would you do it? Me.......noooooo wayyyy!

I have my ears pierced and that's enough.  My nephew however, had a celtic design tattoo'd on his wedding ring finger.  He is allergic to almost everything including some metals, so this was his answer to wanting to wear a wedding ring.  I thought it was a neat idea.

especially for some guys who don't care to wear a wedding ring, or if they shouldn't because of their jobs.

Ouch! 

It's not for me, I have a few piercings in my ears & have thought of getting a belly ring but my finger, no thanks!

I would think this is one of the piercings that will 'wear out' as the skin grows but maybe I am wrong.  Hard to say without seeing a picture but either way I would not want it.

Love the idea of the tattooed wedding ring in the right circumstances though.

I too like the idea of a tattoo if your lifestyle/work prohibits wearing a ring. I know a guy in the military who had to keep taking it on and off and lost so many he got a tattoo. 
This just creeps me out- what if it got caught on something?Shocked

to be honest, I kind of like the look of this.  It doesn't gross me out, any more than any other piercing (although I will admit that I have a bit of a 'phobic' thing towards nipple piercings, where I feel the same way about them as you do about this, and that is, the ripping out thing).

I can see how this would get caught easily.  I could never wear my engagement ring at work for that reason (it was prohibited), and the odd time that I forgot to take it off, I knew it immediately, because I'd feel it catch within the first half hour (so would immediately remove it).  In this case, it would be more complicated, but that ring could be removed, as long as it wasn't for too long, but they usually can be taken out for a shift once they heal.  And even if they can't, they can be covered with bandaids or other items to protect the area and other surfaces.  That's what my daughter had to do when she worked at Timmies and had fresh (exposed) piercings.  Not really the end of the world.  ;-)

is right Sick.

I don't even wear my wedding rings anymore because I'm always damaging them, although a nice band would work for me. My BIL once caught his skull ring on a basketball hoop & had to head to emergency, back in his skateboard days.

my first thought upon reading this was: what if the marriage doesn't work out?  What then?

Regardless, the answer for me would be no.

If I was going to get a tattoo, it'd likely be something different.  This doesn't appeal to me.  But if it does appeal to someone, then go for it.  I guess they could always add to it if the marriage didn't work out and make it something completely different.  ;-)
