From dragons to sparrows, ying/yang symbols to Chinese characters, tattoos are a permanent means of marking your body in a way that is significant to you. A tradition around the world for ages, tattoos can be used to also symbolise love for another, such as a twin sister. By marking their bodies in similar ways, sisters can show their bond through a permanent symbol.

Identical Tattoos

For identical twins, nothing is more fitting than identical tattoos. Tattooing the same shape or symbol that has meaning to both sisters is a means of permanently showing that you care. Place the shapes, such as favourite flower, animal or activity, on the same parts of the body, such as the left underside of the wrist or right ankle. The shapes can be as small or as large as desired.


To symbolically represent how identical the sisters are and their very molecular bond, having two intertwining strands of DNA tattooed on a small area of the body is a very practical way of displaying the bond between twins. The strands should be in the same shape and area of the body, however, to make them slightly personalised to each twin, have the colours on them differ for each individual.

Astrological Symbol

Since both sisters would be born under the same astrological sign, having it tattooed on a small region of the body shows not only something about one individual sister, but the fact that both sisters are twins, an even deeper bond. Place a symbol, such as a Gemini, on an ankle or subtle part of one sister's body, and do the same, in the exact same location, on the other.

Connecting Tattoo

Having a tattoo that connects when two arms or legs are placed together is a way of twin sisters permanently showing their bond in a very visual way. The tattoo can be placed on the arm of one sister and then run onto the arm of the other, such as a snake, half of a ying-yang symbol, or a vine. Colours can be changed slightly to personalise the tattoo for each sister, however, they should connect when placed side by side.
