25 Wicked Ideas For A Tattoo Inspired Wedding

Tattoos and weddings have both been around for ages - and they aren’t going anywhere soon.  A tattoo inspired theme can be incorporated into so many styles of weddings: rock n roll, Rockabilly, pin up - or just because tattoos are fun. Whether you are inked up or just love the idea of incorporating tattoo inspiration into your wedding here are 25 awesome ideas for a tattoo themed wedding.


1.  Give your guests a glimpse of your wedding day with tattoo inspired invitations

4. But if you prefer a traditional wedding cake, a unique tattoo inspired cake topper can reflect your personal style without going overboard.

You can buy these cake toppers via RepublicOfCute on Etsy

5. Roses and Skulls are always popular tattoo themes, and incorporating just a little bit into your centerpieces or table decor will give it just the right amount of glitz without making your decor overwhelming.

6. Get a tattoo inspired work of art, frame it and let your guests sign the mat.  Hang it in your home after the wedding for a unique guest book alternative that you can display and get use out of.
