A newlywed husband had a rocky start to his marriage after he discovered he’d gotten the wrong wedding date tattooed onto his ring finger and didn’t notice it for six weeks.
Wayne Lomax got the tattoo two weeks after he married his wife Natalie because he feared losing his wedding ring while he worked as a plasterer, Fox News reported. His wife was telling their friends about the romantic gesture at a party, which is when the couple realized they’d botched the date.

The tattoo said “August 25, 2017,” when it should have said July 25, according to Fox News.
“It wasn’t until five or six weeks after that we were all at a party, and I was telling people he’d had the tattoo done,” Natalie, a mother of three, said.
“We both found it so funny,” she added. “It just basically sums up how we are. Everything is a laugh and a joke. Everyone says, ‘That could only happen to you two — that’s just you two all over.’”
Natalie said after she told Wayne about the error, they just stood there staring at each another before they burst out laughing.
“He said it was my fault and I said, ‘How’s it my fault? You told the woman what to do and got it done.’ I think he told them the wrong date. He’d been putting [the date] into an app on his phone to see what kind of font he wanted,” Natalie said. “He got it wrong in his phone and he showed them [the date] off his phone when he got there.”
Lomax’s wife ended up getting her own tattoo of their wedding date on her ring finger, when they both went back to the shop to have Wayne’s date fixed, Fox News reported.
