Tattoo artist Robert Fiore, dubbed “The Wedding Tattooer”, is performing his services for wedding events, offering fresh ink to the bride, groom, wedding party, and guests.

After being a tattoo artist for more than 20 years, relatives jokingly suggested that he tat up the bride and groom during a family wedding. Fiore thought about the opportunity and decided to bring his tattooing set up to the ceremony where they received tattoos during the cocktail hour. The newlywed couple received their initials on their ring finger. This was the start of a new business journey for the Pennsylvania tattoo artist.

According to his website, Robert will be a part of the entire tattoo planning process. When the soon-to-be bride and groom sign up for his services, he will send them a questionnaire and will interview them during a private consultation.


Both the bride and groom collaborate to plan which tattoo they’d like to give as an option to their guests.

Couples also have the option to select packages that only tattoo during cocktail hour or during the entire wedding reception. If you aren’t getting married, Fiore also has a series other events that he is willing to service with his body art, including bachelor or bachelorette parties and work events.

Fiore has completed more than six weddings with approximately 20 more bookings in the next two years.

If you’re looking to do something unconventional (and permanent) on your big day, the Wedding Tattooer is definitely a good option.
