    Two things are (mostly) forever: marriage, and ink.

    1. Make your invitations tattoo-themed.

    4. Have a cake topper that actually reflects you guys.

    The set on the left is available (custom) from Etsy.

    5. Hand out custom temporary tattoos to your guests.

    6. Have a temporary tattoo station.

    So even kids can get in on the fun (this may well lead to a lifelong love of face tats).

    7. Or sport them yourselves.

    It can be the bride's "something blue." Maybe not an image you'll want forever, but perfect for the day of.

    8. If your wedding party's ink is no match for yours, give them temp tats as well.

    Check out RockNRoll Bride for tons more inspiration.

    9. And get a gown that shows off your favorite pieces.

    11. Rock tattooed shoes.

    The heels are available from Etsy and the men's shoes are from Oliver Sweeney (they'd also make a sweet groom's gift).

    12. Ink your rings (permanently or otherwise)
