my boyfriend and i want to get matching tattoos . or something that completes the other. such as lock and key. any idea?
Ohhhh matching tattoos, such a dilemma. My boyfriend in high school really wanted to get matching tattoos… then we broke up a couple months later. Dodged THAT bullet! haha.
I realize that the idea of matching tattoos are cute and romantic… But just make sure you realllly think about it before you take the plunge. A tattoo is forever (sometimes, a boyfriend is not).
But, if you've really thought it out and you know you'll be with him forever here are some cool ideas:
-Half a heart on the side of your rib, like below your armpit. (It's cute and when you hug your “heart” will be complete. It's also a good choice because it's in a very discrete place, so if you ever do break-it off it's not too noticeable. It's also a good location for future job interviews =]
-Another fun idea is maybe a simple number that is important to you both. For example, my current boyfriend of six years and I started dating on January 10. So 10 has always just kind of been “our number”. You could place it on your wrist, or anywhere really.
-Lyrics to “your song” Another simple idea.
-A cool quote in another language like Victoria and David have.“I am my beloved’s, my beloved is mine’’ in Hebrew.
-If you're both really into music I think one of the coolest ideas for couple's tatts is to have the girl get the treble clef and the boy get the bass clef inked in the same location. It's something cute together, but also cute if you should ever break up.
I think the most important thing here is to remember to get something that means something to you individually as well as to you as a couple. Hope I've given you some ideas, or some ideas to jump start better ideas! Good luck! =]
