Tattooed Wedding Rings How to Get Rid of Wedding Ring Tattoos

 


Visitors: 641

Most couples who had their wedding ring tattoos on their fingers often find out the hard way that love may not be as permanent as the inked symbols on their fingers. Divorce is more popular today than ever before and ironically, most divorces are even easier to have than having tattooed wedding rings removed!

So what do you do when you are picking up the pieces of a relationship which has gone sour and you still have that painful reminder on your finger?

Be thankful for the examples of popular celebs who have ridden the same boat that you are now on. If you want to completely remove the wedding ring tattoo from your finger along with all its bitter regrets and sad memories you can follow in the footsteps of stand up comic Kathy Griffin, who had her tattooed wedding rings removed after her divorce from husband of five years, Matt Moline. Unfortunately, most people often do not go for this option since laser tattoo removal is painful and it is not exactly cheap.

However, you can now apply for cosmetic surgery loans since tattoo removals are covered under cosmetic surgery procedures. The complete removal of tattooed wedding rings is often the best option, even if its not exactly affordable, since in time these tattoos may look blurry, spread out, and just plain ugly to look at.

Another way to have a wedding ring tattoo removed is dermabrasion, which is also painful although not as expensive as laser removal.

If cost is still a problem you might want to modify your tattooed wedding rings into something that doesn't resemble its original image. Some couples engraved their partner's names or the wedding date on their fingers. In the case of Baywatch babe Pam Anderson, it was “Tommy" for former hubby Tommy Lee. When the two split up, Anderson had the tattoo promptly changed from “Tommy" to “Mommy". Talk about clever!

Another procedure, which is probably more invasive and drastic than mere laser removal, is excision. In this procedure the tattooed portion of your skin is cut out and the skin is resewn together and allowed to heal. This will remove the tattoo for good, but you'll have to go under the knife to get it done. Not pretty.

A cheaper and probably the easiest alternative does not involve the removal of your tattoo at all. You can cover it with a real wedding band if you ever get married again. This will work for those who have successfully moved on from the sad memories of relationships gone by. Most people think this is actually a good option, since although some relationships end, they are still important learning points in our lives. You wouldn't be in the place that you are now in if that relationship did not happen, and even if the relationship did not end the way you hoped it would be, you both got happy and loving memories out of it.

Some of these options may not be easy or cheap to do, and if you are really broke you'll have that reminder on you for the rest of your life. So before you take that leap (into tattooing and marriage), think long and hard before you decide.
