Why Get A Couple Tattoo?

Couple tattoos are very cute, not to mention hold a lot of meaning. One of the most popular types of couple tattoos is where two connected words are inked on the couple’s hands. You can use your favorite phrases or words and have them inked separately to show how perfect you look when combined together.

Here are 7 reasons why getting a couple tattoo is a great idea:


Engrave milestones

Some people may take a selfie on their anniversary or tell their diaries about their first date. But, matching tattoos can also mark a milestone. Sharing a thrilling trip together or reaching a landmark in your relationship (engagements, weddings, babies) definitely qualify as happy times that you’ll want to be reminded of every day.

Symbolize your commitment

Our culture loves to celebrate commitment — from promise rings to wedding rings to wearing vials of blood around our necks. But, none of those are really forever. If you want to showcase the permanence of your relationship, then what could be a better way than injecting drops of ink into your dermis 3,000 times per minute? That’s love!


Birds of a feather…

Nothing says family like matching navy blue T-shirts and white jeans in your annual family photo… right? Well, donning the same symbol as your sig-o can also make you feel like two-of-a-kind. Think of it as a uniform that only you two wear.

Pain is gain

Maria Konnikova of The New Yorker reports of a study by psychologist Elliot Aronson, “[…] the more painful the experience a young woman had to go through in order to join a community, the more she valued the group.” So just think, the tighter you’re forced to squeeze your eyelids and tense your muscles from the pain of the needle, the more you’ll value that tiny XO on your wrist. And knowing that your partner in crime went through the same thing? Poof. The bond is magical.


Take your love to the extremes

When you share a heightened experience with someone — bungee jumping, skydiving or even surviving a meet-the-parents dinner — that moment strengthens a personal bond between you. Getting inked together also creates a high adrenal experience that will deepen the affection you have for each other.

Be an open book

In an article on San Franciso’s tattoo culture,” Joshua Mohr refers to tattoos as a “visible autobiography.” He writes, “They are a time line.” Without our other (better) halves, there would be a significant void in our stories. Getting a tattoo with them only highlights the fact that they are the Romeo to our Juliet.


Tattoos express who you are

Tattoos are personal — thus, most people don’t just walk into a parlor and tell the tattoo artist, “Ink me up with your favorite.” No way, José. We spend months, even years, deciding on the perfect tattoo that means the most to us. The love we have for our significant others is a huge part of who we are, too. So, why not wear our hearts on our sleeves?

The Various Designs For A Couple Tattoo

After you’ve gotten yourself in a relationship, you’re just dying to tell the world how much you love your partner. There have been plenty of trends that revolve around couples, and how they can share their love for one another. Some of the popular options include couple shirts, couple bracelets, couple necklaces, and couple charms. But what if you both want something that lasts forever? Then a couple tattoo is a good choice. A tattoo lasts forever and stays on your skin no matter what happens. If you want to place permanent ink on your skin, then the best thing would be a symbol of your undying loyalty to your significant other. Not only does it feel like a bond, but it also carries a deeper meaning, and makes an excellent fashion statement.

Here are some of the best tattoo designs we can think of that can easily be transformed into a couple tattoo:

(Please do take note that we may feature single tattoo designs)

The Infinity Tattoo

A number of symbols have been used with specific meanings. Some are definite while others have some hidden meanings. One of the top symbols that have a definite meaning is the infinity symbol. This symbol has been used in many areas, including tattoos. The infinity tattoo designs are commonly applied by many people and they have different meanings all together.

The infinity symbol is currently used by many people and in many ways and applications. Even though it was first used in mathematics, it is used in different areas currently. The thing about this symbol is that you will never get to the end of it. It has no start, nor an end. It has two halves, which could mean that there are two sections, persons, lives or different aspects joined together.

Here are some of the best infinity tattoo designs we saw that can easily be used as a couple tattoo:

The Yin Yang Tattoo

The Yin and Yang symbol has been deeply rooted in ancient Chinese society, beliefs, and customs. One may even dare say that this symbol molded Chinese society into what it is today.

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.

In Chinese cosmology, the universe creates itself out of a primary chaos of material energy, organized into the cycles of Yin and Yang and formed into objects and lives.

Since the yin and yang symbol has been around for quite some time now and its roots came from the most populous country in the world, various designs have propped up across the globe in the many Chinese communities that dotted cities, towns, and countries across the globe. Though one may see various designs where the Yin and Yang is almost not foreseeable, the concept of the Yin and Yang is still visible.

The Sparrow Tattoo

Sparrows are small, plump, brown and grey birds with short tails and stubby, powerful beaks. They are found across all continents with the exception of Antarctica with species varying from one place to the other but these variations of species can be very minute and most often unnoticeable to us non-experts.

Here are some interesting facts about sparrows:

1. Males and females can be distinguished by the feather coloration: males have reddish backs and black bib, while females have brown backs with stripes.

2. Sparrows are carnivores (meat-eaters) by nature, but they have changed their eating habits when they learned to live close to people. Sparrows primarily eat moths and other small insects, but they can also eat seed, berries, and fruit.

3. Sparrows are monogamous meaning they will only have one partner for life.

This little bird has been associated with many meanings. One such meaning is that they symbolize an outgoing personality. Sparrows are social creatures which means that they like to socialize with other birds and travel in flocks. This can also be attributed to sparrow tattoos.

Another meaning is loyalty. Sparrows are perceived as one of the only few animals that are monogamous. Having a sparrow tattoo means that you are loyal to your partner to the very end.

Here are some of the sparrow tattoo designs we have gathered for you that we personally think can be made into a couple tattoo:
