Rings are pretty to wear and stack, but they have a downside: They can get lost or broken. Ring tattoos, on the other hand, are more personalized and last forever. They can symbolize important events, too!
A word of caution, though: Ring tattoos are not for the faint of heart. Having your fingers inked can be painful because the areas have thin skin and are bony. Flesh acts as a cushion in between the needle and the bone, and your fingers have minimal muscle. To (sort of) minimize pain, you can ask your tattoo artist to take small breaks during the session to help you power through the agony.
Nevertheless, this ink style is something you should definitely consider because they're sooo stylish! Take a look at our prettiest picks:
