Getting the same image or a coordinating design tattoo with your special man or woman is the perfect way to show the permanency of your love and devotion. Here are some ideas to get you and your husband or wife thinking of what you might want your special tattoo to be.
Rings and Dates
Commemorate your wedding with an inked ring or the date tattooed on your forearm. It will serve as a constant reminder of your commitment that you can never take off. Some couples are even combining the idea with the date tattooed onto their ring fingers.
You and your spouse go together like Mickey and Minnie, Lady and the Tramp, or Mario and Princess Peach. Some couples are even getting Pinky and the Brain tattoos! We’ll let you tangle over who’s who in the relationship.
Other ideas include peanut butter and jelly, a Native American brave and squaw, and pictures of male and female animals. Some of the best tattoos we’ve seen in this category are king and queen crowns. You can show that you’re going to rule your life together as the royal couple of your household.
Whatever your sense of humor or beauty, you can depict your relationship with any two things that go well together.
Poetry and Promises
Some couples pick out a favorite poem or saying for their matching tattoos. Others pick a theme together but get their own variations of it. One example is the infinity symbol below. One is very feminine with thin lines and flowers around it while the other is masculine with bold shapes and sharp edges.
Completing the Thought
Whether you believe your spouse completes you or not, you can still show how close they are to you with a tattoo that finishes the other’s sentiment. For instance, you can get a tattoo that says “Til Death…” and let your spouse get one that reads, “…Do Us Part.”
Other ideas would be sayings that go together. One tattoo you’ll see below says, “I’ll keep you safe” while its counterpart says, “I’ll keep you wild.”
Shapes and Scenes
Along the same lines are tattoos that make a shape when put together. One popular idea is for each person to have half a heart. Other examples include a flock of birds that coordinate with each other’s tattoo, a picture of a key and a lock, or a hummingbird taking nectar from a flower.
One couple even got tattoos of two halves of an avocado!
Piece of Me
Even more specific in the coordinating picture motif are tattoos that show how much your husband or wife is a part of you. The best example is a tattoo that shows a puzzle piece missing from one person on the arm of the other. A wackier version is the slice of pizza taken from one person’s pie and tattooed on the other’s wrist.
You could also get a matching couple tattoo to represent something that you bond over. Maybe you both have a love for Star Wars or video games. We love the Tie Fighter and X-Wing tattoos below. You’ll also see matching PlayStation controller tattoos.
Besides an interest, you could also get a tattoo to remember where you met.
