Like A Tattoo, This Wedding Favor Is Forever

Lindsay Morris and Stephen Munshin didn’t have to step inside a tattoo parlor to get their first tattoos. All they had to do was attend the wedding of their niece Leslie Merinoff to Brian Kwasienski last October in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Ms. Morris and Mr. Munshin were aware there would be tattoos available during the reception. “And we were not planning on getting one,” said Ms. Morris, a photographer.

But by the end of the night, the Sag Harbor, N.Y., couple, who managed to stay ink-free into their early 50s, were using up a tattoo artist’s last needles to have the number “11” put on their wrists. Both were born on that day of the month.
