Honeymoon Trip and Tattoos

Recommended Posts

So I am getting married in July of this year to the most amazing woman. We are two peas in a pod. We both love tattoos and although I have far more, it is something we enjoy together. This August we are planning to take our honeymoon on a road trip through a large swath of the USA. (We are Canadians living in Toronto) We will travel to Nashville, then to Savannah, GA. After that we go to Orlando, New Orleans, San Antonio, Sante Fe, back through Colorado, Kansas, St. Louis, Chicago, then back to Toronto. I was thinking it would be fun to pick up a tattoo or two along the way. Nothing large, given that we will be in a car much of the time and a lot of healing and driving might not be a great idea. I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts about getting tattoos in some of these places? I know where'd I'd go in Chicago, but what about New Orleans or New Mexico? A tattoo from Texas would be cool too, and I'd be passing through San Antonio...

i wanna see newly-wed photos this summer then! get a tattoo in every city you stop in!

I'd live to get a tattoo in each stop but I think Erin might not be on board with that. ;)

Another dude who I've been digging lately though I've only seen his tattoos on IG is Ishmael Johnson in Fort Collins, CO. He's coming to the Montreal convention and I've been thinking of getting tattooed by him because he's doing some really cool stuff:

Getting married next summer most likely, too! Congrats! I wanted to do a road trip honeymoon across the US, but the other half isn't as keen. Let us know how it goes! And obviously what tattoos you both get!

Thanks and congratulations to you too! I'll certainly report back and post pics along the way.

First off congrats. Second I think that is a wonderful idea. Any idea on what you would get? Will you and your wife get a matching tattoo to help you remember your special honeymoon? I love this idea of getting one or more tattoos on a honeymoon.
