You’re going to love the couples' tattoo ideas we picked out for you.  

What to Consider When Choosing Couple Tattoos 

So, you and your partner have decided to get identical tattoos — or a set of complementary tattoo designs.

You want the kind of tattoo you’d happily pay hundreds of dollars for – while completely sober. Because even if your relationship doesn’t last for decades, this tattoo sure will. 

Whatever your reasons for getting a couples tattoo, here are a few things to consider:

  • Tattoos are very difficult and expensive to remove;
  • No tattoo artist, however talented, is a mind-reader. Bring a picture;
  • Spend time researching tattoos and artists before setting an appointment;
  • Finger tattoos are the quickest to fade (with all the washing hands get);
  • Tattoos over bony or sensitive areas hurt more;
  • Wing eyeliner tattoos do not age well (according to tattoo artists)
  • The skin around your tattoo will look red and inflamed for a bit; this is normal.

Maybe you met in the fall. Or perhaps you both have an enduring love of maple trees or maple syrup — or long walks together under the trees.

FAQs About Getting Soulmate Couple Tattoos

Should couples get matching tattoos?

When it comes to couples getting matching tattoos, it's really all about personal preference. Some folks find it super romantic, while others might think it's a bit risky.

One thing's for sure, though: it's a decision that requires a good deal of thought. Communication is key – make sure both partners are on board and choose a design that's meaningful to them. At the end of the day, what matters most is that the couple feels happy and confident in their decision.

What does it mean when a couple gets matching tattoos?

When couples get matching ink, it typically symbolizes their strong bond and shared commitment. These tattoos can represent a special moment, shared interest, or just their love for each other. It's a creative way to express their connection and make a lasting statement.

Of course, every couple has their own story, so the meaning behind their tattoos can vary greatly. But ultimately, it's a unique and personal expression of their love journey.

Where do you put matching couple tattoos?

The placement really depends on personal preferences and how visible the couple wants their tattoos to be. Some popular spots include wrists, forearms, and ankles, which are easy to show off or cover up.

Others might opt for more intimate locations like ribs, hips, or even behind the ear. The key is to find a spot that feels special and comfortable for both partners, so they can proudly wear their matching symbols of love.

Do couples with matching tattoos last?

It's tough to say for sure whether couples with matching tattoos last longer than others. Relationships are complex, and success depends on factors like communication, trust, and compatibility. While matching tattoos might reflect a strong bond, they're not a guarantee of longevity.

Some couples with tattoos may stand the test of time, while others might not. Ultimately, the key to a lasting relationship goes beyond matching ink and lies in the hard work, commitment, and love both partners put in.

Final Thoughts

Now that you’ve looked through all 79 designs for couples' tattoos, we hope you found at least a few worth considering. Getting a couple's tattoo is a risky commitment, so make sure you both really want the tattoos long-term. 

Whatever happens, you want this to hold good memories for you both.
