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.
A key and keyhole
A simple key and keyhole concept offers a quick and affective way to show the world that you’re in love without breaking the bank. Many similar couple tattoos feature elaborate skeleton keys with ornate tooling and intricate details, but the more minimalistic examples like the one above are equally impressive.
King and Queen finger tats
I know what you’re thinking; Another king and queen design?!? Trust me, I feel you, but you have to also understand that it’s all about the placement. Finger tattoos don’t come with the stigma they once did. In fact, one could even say that we are living in a golden age of finger tattoos.
Just cute, right? Couple tattoos don’t have to literally spell out your love for your significant other. Sometimes a design that falls a little more under the radar and into the inside joke category is more appealing to those who are more introverted in nature. And really, what’s more special than a little ink that you and your SO are the only ones that understand?
Is the motto of every tattoo, right? The font, the hearts, it’s all super cute and nothing sounds better than saying “together forever,”—it just rolls of the tongue. This set of tats is all about the font, and while this font is undoubtedly modeled after a widely used font, we just can’t seem to put our finger on it.
Matching watercolor tree line tattoos are probably something you’ve never seen before. But that’s because it takes a special kind of artist to be able to pull off such a beautiful design. But it’s always nice to see what’s being created out there and what’s possible.
When it comes to any type of tattoo, it’s important to make sure that you’re falling in love with the design itself, and not just the set and composition of a well staged photo. Not saying that this design isn’t everything one could hope for in a couple tattoo, but that magical bokeh effect puts a lot of extras in the mix.
Here we have another compact cursive font that could literally spell out anything and still look amazing. There’s something about cursive fonts that just oozes romance and elegance. When it doubt, go cursive.
You keep me sane, you keep me wild
I’ve always been jealous of relationships like this. If me and my boyfriend got matching tattoos they would probably go something like this, “You’re not too annoying yet and you put up with my sh**.” Kidding of course. There’s romance and love there but more along the lines of “I really like you,” versus “You’re my better half and absolutely complete me.”
The best part about having stand alone couple tattoos is that you don’t have to explain to people that the confusing blob on your ankle is actually half a unicorn that looks great when it’s matched up along side your husbands. After all, 99.999 percent of the time people are going to be viewing your ink by itself.
With the recent social media travel boom, you may find yourself just aching to hop on a plane and travel across the world to remote destinations where everything’s more exciting. These matching wanderlust tattoos can be a cute reminder of a special trip you took together or just a shared desire to travel.
