Tattoo Ideas for Sisters

Sisters have a distinct and exclusive relationship that creates a profound bond. Sisters who are close may share deep friendships and intertwined lives. Reflecting that through a shared tattoo design can be a way to show that to the rest of the world. A number of themes fit the idea of a shared sister tattoo, whether it's a blood sister or a woman who became a sister not from birth.

Sometimes a family has a phrase with special meaning, or even a family motto, that can be a basis for sister tattoos. Perhaps a well known quote or inspirational phrase like "Carpe Diem," or "seize the day" in Latin, can work. "Sisters are different flowers from the same garden," is another idea. Use a phrase that is common and meaningful to the two of you for a memorable sister tattoo.

Milestone Dates

The birth or death of a family member is a milestone date that can be memorialised by sisters in a tattoo -- perhaps the child of one and godchild to the other, or a parent or sibling who has passed. Beating cancer with the help of a sibling could be another milestone sisters may want to remember. These types of memorial dates can provide a living record of shared experiences.


Interlocking symbols such as Celtic knots, a heart with two halves, or symbols that mean sisterhood are good choices for a shared tattoo. Tribal design tattoos are simple but dramatic and can be adapted easily to a sister tattoo. A banner with both names and a heart between reflects the bond of sisterhood both women can wear on a tattoo, or any variation of this such as flowers, hearts and stars.


A shared love for a particular animal such as wolves, big cats or even a breed of dog can inspire a sisterhood tattoo -- a family pet or a particular animal that represents the spiritual connection between the two women. Any real or cartoon animal both women love fits the bill for this sister-themed tattoo.
