Husbands and wives often want a tangible symbol of the permanence of their union and the depth of their love. Marriage and true love are supposed to last forever, and his and her tattoos can be a serious way of demonstrating to your life partner, and the world, the strength of your commitment. Tattoos can be small, private, romantic symbols, visible only to your partner. Or they can be larger, public statements of the importance of your marriage.

Mark Your Man

The word "tattoo" comes from the Tahitian word "tatau" meaning to mark something. Small and simple tattoo designs such as hearts or two hands entwined can be located on intimate parts of the body that are visible only to your lover. There is nothing so romantic as permanently marking your beloved in a private and erotic area. You will be able to observe your dearest looking unchanged in public, but knowing that you two share a sweet secret.

Display Your Love

Many couples want their commitment to be as public as possible. Large and bold designs incorporating romantic images such as hearts, angels, cupids or Celtic love knots located on a highly visible part of the body such as an arm, hand or neck tell the world that you are in love and taken. Wedding ring tattoos on your ring finger can replace or complement a physical wedding ring. Unique designs can commemorate special occasions in your life or be combined to make a statement about your special relationship.

Soul Mates

Husbands and wives are soul mates and usually consider themselves two halves of a whole. Tattoos that are two halves of one design are an excellent way to illustrate this. Two halves of a heart or two lips that together make a kiss are an example. Matching tattoos that stand alone but belong together, such as two hands that fit together, are a variation on this.

Consider Your Partner

Tattoos that match or complement each other can be a powerful statement of how you work together as a couple. Compromise is always involved in the design of partner tattoos. Masculine themes such as skulls or dragons need to be toned down, as do feminine themes like flowers or fairies. Whether public or private, couple tattoos should be an expression of your individual relationship.
