Kevin Locke shows off his new wedding band tattoo

Rugby league star Kevin Locke has shown off his new wedding band tattoo after tying the knot with his partner Chelsea Pitman.

The former Warriors player married the Australian netballer at Sydney's Taronga Zoo on December 30.

It's a date the star won't forget after he inked the date on his ring finger.

Locke posted a video of the finished work on his Instagram page overnight.

"Wife can't complain about not wearing my wedding band," Locke joked.

The newly Mrs Locke posted a sneak peek of the couple's wedding snaps which will feature in Woman's Day this week on her Instagram page.

"I want to redo this day all over again! Best day of my life!" wrote Ms Locke.
