Tattoo Wedding and Vow Renewal Ceremonies at Neck Deep Tattoo
With the growth in popularity of tattoos some couples are opting for tattoo rings or meaningful designs on other body parts rather than traditional wedding bands or rings. Wedding tattoos are ideal for mechanics, fire fighters, medical professionals and other professions which are prohibited from wearing physical rings for health and safety reasons. After receiving a request for a tattoo wedding ring ceremony I have partnered with Neck Deep Tattoo in Kaneohe, on the island of Oahu to offer wedding and vow renewal ceremonies at their tattoo shop and their tattoo artists will tattoo the wedding couple as part of the ceremony.

The ceremony takes place at the Tattoo Shop with the couple and up to two guests. A non religious love centric ceremony is officiated by me at the Tattoo Shop and the couple will receive tattoos as part of the ceremony. The couple can choose to have rings tattooed or meaningful tattoos on other body parts as part of the ceremony. $450 plus tax including officiant and 2 tattoos. Tattoos can be as a ring or a meaningful tattoo on other body parts and take less than one hour to complete. Add $100 per person for each additional hour of tattoo work for more detailed work such as realism portraits or medium to large pieces. Space is limited, you may hire a photographer but they count as one of the guests.
Invite Up To 10 Guests
Want to invite up to 10 guests? The tattoo shop can be closed for private events for $500 for the first hour and $200 for each additional hour. Your private event includes wedding officiant for up to one hour, 2 tattoo artists, and tattooing of wedding couple and guests over 18 years old during reserved time. You can bring in your own catering to have a small reception.

Alternative Wedding Tattoos
Instead of rings, some couples are choosing alternative tattoos for their weddings by getting something to symbolize their love and commitment on their fingers, wrists, forearms, or ankles as part of the ceremony.
