A destination wedding photographer recently captured something truly unique at her client's wedding.
Every couple wants to make their wedding day special and memorable for themselves and their guests. Be it flying their guests to a different country for a destination wedding or adding a fun photo booth backdrop to their venue that guests can get photographed in front of, nobody wants a forgettable wedding where it's all over in an instant with the exchange of vows. While couples and event planners in recent years have bent over backward to come up with never-seen-before wedding elements, a destination wedding photographer recently captured something truly unique on her client's wedding day.
Lyndi Mishe—who goes by @lyndimishephotography on TikTok—shared a video featuring a tattoo artist giving permanent mementos to wedding guests. The 17-second video shows the newlywed couple's friends and loved ones lining up to get inked. Mishe, the Kansas-based photographer, documented the one-of-a-kind wedding favor with the text overlay: "Your sign to have a tattoo artist at your wedding."
Sharing the clip on Instagram—where it gained over 1.9 million views in less than two weeks—she wrote in the caption: "Loving this new trend!! Everything was properly sanitized and no one was drunk."
The video also gives a close-up view of a wedding guest's tattoo, which appears to be a line tattoo of an animal. While the tattoo artist must've had her hands full at the event between setting up stencils, tattooing multiple guests and sanitizing her equipment between each guest, this fun wedding favor is now probably a core memory for everyone who attended the event.

In a similar story, TikTok user @isabel.no.uh did some permanent inking on her skin to cherish the memory of her father forever. The 17-year-old decided to surprise her father, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease, with a preciously symbolic tattoo that she had designed a few months back while in school. The tattoo features two lines depicting ocean waves, one a bit larger than the other and her father's birth year '52. Isabel's father gives her a warm embrace, deeply touched by his daughter's tribute to him.
Pointing at the smaller wave, she said: "One is me." The teen then pointed at the bigger wave while saying "One is you. Do you know why?" She emphasize "the wave" so he could recollect their beautiful memory. After a few seconds, she explains the heartwarming story behind the design. "It's because we went sailing and you taught me how to sail. It's my favorite memory with you. It's on my arm because it'll never fade and you'll always remember it every day you see me. It will always remind you of us, when you were born and the memories you made with me," she told her father who appeared visibly moved by her gesture.
