tattoo wedding

A report from the Food and Drug Administration claims that 45 million Americans have tattoos and that 36% of people between the ages of 25 and 29 have a tattoo. That’s a lot of ink! I thought it was about time we had a post dedicated to inked brides everywhere; the ones who wear their tattoos with pride and choose their wedding dresses based on how well it shows off their body art. I’ve rounded up some of the sweetest, softest, most romantic and subtle tattoos out there just for you and for those of you who can’t quite bring yourself to commit to something permanent (like myself), check out the artsy temporary tattoos at Tattly sometime. I’m addicted to them!

  1. I love the washed-out pastel feel, and that flock of birds tattoo is AMAZING!

    • I know right?! When I look at that picture I want to get a tattoo but I know I would change my mind about what design I wanted every week…so that would be a problem.

  2. I have a tattoo on my ribs but I think I’d love something on the wrist. You picked some beautiful shots!!

  3. I <3 tattooed brides! I'm going to be one myself!
