What’s a better way of showcasing your love than getting a tattoo that symbolises not only your love but has a sentimental value as well? Many couples may have an idea for a design from the get-go, but for those who are a bit lost, there is a little more work to be done. There is a lot to consider here: names or no names, placement, and design. You could also think of considering the worst-case scenario of splitting up - what then? In this article, you will find some great tattoo ideas for couples and some great tips as well!
Getting matching tattoos is an excellent option for those who may not necessarily feel like they have to show the tattoo off. Matching tattoos may not necessarily tell a tale of love and attraction, but they can most definitely be sentimental. To achieve that feeling, just think about what comes to mind when you think about your significant other. It can be anything from inside jokes to first dates and gifts. The sky is the limit here!
Another great way to express your devotion to one another is to get matching but slightly different tattoos. That way, you can get more of a couple feeling than with completely matching tattoos, but still not as much as you would get with complimentary or name tattoos. They are a great middle-ground for those who want to show commitment but not wear it on their sleeve. A few examples of these kinds of tattoos are Disney designs, tribal tattoos, fishes, symbols, moon and the sun, and Nintendo characters.
With the most popular place for couples to get tattooed being the forehand, it is not surprising that many couples choose to get somewhat interactive tattoos. The idea behind it is that when the couple holds each other hands, the tattoos complete a puzzle with each other like one complements the other. It is a great piece to get if you’re a bit worried about the tattoo’s longevity and if you want something a bit more special than your typical design. These designs become like the couple’s secret because most often on their own, the tattoos don’t speak as much, but when combined with the other person’s tattoo, they become complete. Some ideas for these types of tattoos include Lock and key, puzzle pieces, incomplete quotes, and incomplete Minecraft hearts.
One of the staples of couples tattooing is named tattoos. They are as simple as they sound but can be elevated however you would like. It is simply tattooing each other’s name on your body. But it doesn’t mean that you cannot be creative with it. You can choose to incorporate the name in any kind of design, of course, preferably one that means something to you as a couple. These include but are not limited to hearts with names, lock and key, infinity signs with names, script tattoo names, names with a lifeline, and white ink tattoos.
