The ink is dry on their marriage certificate – and now on Ryan Sweeting’s arm, too!

The Bahamian-American tennis player has celebrated his New Year’s Eve wedding to actress Kaley Cuoco by getting a honeymoon tattoo honoring his new bride.

The design, on the inside of his left forearm, includes the Big Bang Theory actress’s first name in black script along with their wedding date in Roman numerals (XII XXXI XIII) nestled inside a red heart.

“Artistic cred to Damian at True Tattoo Hollywood,” wrote Sweeting, 26, in posting a photo of the tattoo to Instagram.

Sweeting is no stranger to the tattoo parlor. On the right side of his rib cage, he has six scripted words stacked up: “siMplicity, peAce, Youth, Hope, lovE & meMories.” The capital letters spell out “MAYHEM.”
