112 Hopelessly Romantic Couple Tattoos That Are Better Than A Ring

*This post may contain affiliate links (what does it mean?)   

A list of romantic and unique matching couple tattoo ideas for you and bae.

Getting a matching tattoo with someone else is a huge commitment. Unlike mother-daughter tattoos or sister tattoos, you’ll never know if the relationship with your best friend or a Significant Other is going to last forever. 

But if the love is real and this particular person means a lot to you, why not celebrate the connection with matching couple tattoos? Carrying the same stories together is beyond romantic.


Should I get matching couple tattoos?

If you have already made up your mind, you are welcome to skip to the couple tattoo designs. But if you are still considering whether or not to get matching tattoos, here are 5 things to know before getting inked with your Significant Other:

  • Couple tattoos don’t turn a bad relationship around.

If you are considering getting inked to save a relationship, you’ll most likely regret it.

  • Choose tattoo designs that mean something to you already.

Even if you break up with a boyfriend or girlfriend, the tattoo will still be meaningful to you.

  • Getting couple tattoos is a relationship ritual. So make sure both of you are willing to carry it for the rest of your lives.
  • Name tattoos are believed to bring back luck to relationships. So if you can, avoid them.
  • If you treat tattoos as a timeline of life, and the person you tattoo with is a big part of it, go for it.
