Tattoos are personal and usually tell us something about the person wearing them. Tattoos can also be a way for a couple to link themselves. There are many design ideas that might be suitable for couples who want to express their love for one another with tattoos. Choosing a design idea unique to the two of you as a couple can be a big decision, but if you enjoy tattoos and want to share one with your significant other, some ideas are made for lovers.

Birth Signs

Design your own image that combines your birth signs, whether they be astrological or Chinese. The design can incorporate elements from each birth sign into one unique image that the two of you can tattoo onto each other. Combining your birth signs into one is a way to combine a part of each of you that will become one. Most tattoo artists are able and willing to do custom designs.

Interlocking Names

There's no better way to show your unity as a couple than by having one another's name tattooed on yourself. Rather than simply having a name tattooed on your body, consider tattooing both names on each of you. Make a custom design that combines the two of your names into one design. You may have to look around for a tattoo parlour that does names. Some choose not to tattoo names on clients because many clients often regret it later, if the relationship ends.

Personal Animals

Discuss what animal you feel represents each of you best, then tattoo each other's animal on you. This can be a way to link the two of you together in a personal way without it being so obvious to anyone who looks at the tattoo.

Symbolic Tattoos

A ball and chain with your names, a heart with wings or two halves of a heart are some of the traditional symbolic tattoos you might consider having tattooed on one another. The ball and chain is tongue in cheek and fun, two halves of a heart is a symbol that indicates the two of you make a whole, and the heart with wings is a symbol of the freedom your love for one another brings.
