Boyfriend Has 'Bristol' Tattooed on Ring Finger

But Bristol's hand wasn't the only thing Johnson was displaying on his fingers. As TV cameras were able to reveal, the 18-year-old hockey player is also sporting a tattoo that reads "Bristol" – located exactly where a wedding ring would go.
The young couple's relationship has been embraced by their families, and Johnston joined the entire family onstage after Palin's primetime speech Wednesday.
But one person, who knows what it's like to be in the spotlight, has sympathy for all the attention on Bristol, who is five-months pregnant. "I just feel for her because even just two weeks ago, she was completely anonymous," John McCain's daughter Meghan McCain, 23, told PEOPLE Wednesday. "She's a very sweet girl and [Johnston] is very nice. My heart goes out to them."
