I often find myself dreaming up the perfect couple tattoos since dreaming up the perfect boyfriend just makes me too depressed these days. But some day my time will come, and when it does, I’ll be prepared with a number of revolutionary couple tattoo ideas that my future husband will no doubt be blown away by. We may even get multiple couple tattoos, just because it would be such a shame to let any of those brilliant ideas go to waste. While I slowly build up my collection, here are a few of the designs from my collection.
Matching heart-shaped fingerprints
Fingerprint tattoos have always been a cool concept. And while I’m not sure if it’s the case here, wouldn’t it be amazing if these tattoos were actual copies of each others real fingerprints? It doesn’t look like it, but I wouldn’t imagine it would be too difficult to pull off.
Every girl that falls in love dreams of a little house with a white picket fence. A perfect little storybook relationship is what we all strive for, and by the looks of these two tattoos, this couple has found just that.
They say that when two Taureans come together, a very stable relationship ensues—which is what the Taurus lives for. Constellation make for popular couple tattoos, but we usually see matching designs. These individual designs are a breath of fresh air.
Sun and moon
The contrast of the gradient colors to their minimalist counterparts really make this design pop. Gradient crescent moons are super popular right now and it’s easy to see why.
I see a lot of different wedding band tattoos, but these minimalistic lines are sophisticated in a way that more elaborate designs will never achieve in my opinion. Sometimes less really is more.
When most people decide to get a tattoo inspired by love, the first thing that usually comes to mind is getting their lover’s name tattooed in one fancy cursive font or another. While this can be beautiful, an elegant set of initials is another option to consider which is equally beautiful and less conspicuous.
King & Queen cards
The whole “king and queen” thing is a concept that I run into about once every ten seconds on Instagram. Now granted my boards are almost all tattoo related but it wouldn’t be an understatement to say that this type of matching design is by far the most popular relationship based design in existence. Yes, it even beats out those little connecting hearts that couples get on their fingers.
You fill me
Here we have an oldie but a goodie. I wanted to make this list about the newest and most up to date designs (no one wants to see the same designs over and over) but the concept of this design is just too awesome and a list without this particular design wouldn’t be complete in my opinion.
Lock and key
This is another uber popular design concept that couples flock to like malfunctioning ATM machines spitting out money, but it’s fun to see the different spins artists come up with. This lock and key is lightly-drawn with an enchanting dose of watercolor bokeh.
Yin & Yang
A segmented yin and yang tattoo is the perfect couple tattoo. It’s a way of telling your significant other “You complete me.” In the design above, each section of the symbol represents a completely different climate. Opposites attract, in case you didn’t know.
