With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, there is only one thing on our minds – all of the couple tattoos that will inevitably happen that day. For a long time, our feelings on couple tattoos have been divided. While a lot of designs are absolutely adorable, we can’t help but fear what will happen if the couple breaks up.
We have to caution those who are thinking about getting ink with their beau. There are endless stories of couples who have been tattooed together just to split months later. Not to mention, you’ll pay for it later in the form of laser removal or a cover-up tattoo. But still, if you’re years into a relationship and want to celebrate committing your life to a single person – go for it! Below, you’ll find some inspiration for your future couples tattoo.
Some matching plane silhouettes would be perfect for a long distance couple who wants to feel connected through their ink.
Consider getting a striking pair of floral tattoos to show how your partner has helped you grow over the years.
Similar, yet different. These nearly-matching Mandalas are perfect for couples that celebrate their differences.
If you aren’t big on needles, then you should consider a micro finger tattoo. These let you show your love through a simple, minimalist design.
Pets also make a great couple tattoo, since they represent the shared life you have managed to build with your partner.
If you’re musically inclined, you should look into sound wave tattoos. These designs allow you to keep a clip of your partner’s voice saying “I love you,” or even a short clip of them singing your favorite song.
A shared tattoo can also be a great opportunity to pay homage to a movie or television show that brought you together.
If you can’t decide on a certain subject, consider springing for a more abstract style. You can start by looking into the meaning of a few symbols that will suit your relationship.
Or spend Valentine’s Day with “the one” by getting some ink that celebrates your shared, nerdy style.
A nature-inspired tattoo can be the perfect complement for an outdoorsy couple who love camping.
