Matching Tattoos

I know the various reasons that people get matching tattoos. They want to form a bond with someone they love or admire. They also might want to memorialize their friendship with something that will have lasting effect. And believe me, I admire the sentimentality behind them. But, I also have to question the wisdom behind them. When it comes to relationships, just about anything can happen. Friends move away, lose affection with one another and sometimes betray each other. I’m not being a pessimist, it’s just human nature.

So, before you and your friend get matching tattoos then you both should put some serious thought into it. What if the above scenarios happen? Will one, or both of you choose to keep your matching tattoos? If not, are you ready for the long, painful process of removal? And there is always the case of the matching tattoos design becoming something that you don’t like anymore. Of course, if you and your friend get matching tattoos of a star or something then even after the friendship ends it may be a tattoo that you wish to keep. If, however you get matching tattoos of each others names, well that’s another story altogether.

Thinking of getting a matching tattoo with one of your loved ones. Well, it’s a practice that has been warned against probably since the beginning of the art of tattooing. Too often we see couples get matching tattoos and then six months later they have broken up. But, there are reasons to get these tattoos. So, let’s find out a little bit about them.

There are many traditional and nontraditional ways to show you love someone. The matching tattoo used to be considered rebellious, but these days, matching designs are not hard to spot and they no longer carry the heavy stigma they once did.

Recently, traditional artwork has become the choice of many couples. With the resurrection of Sailor Jerry tattoo designs and other classic Americana symbols, including the rose, the skull and crossbones and the classic red heart with the arrow, matching tattiis are in the rise. And everybody from spouses to siblings are getting these tattoos. Sometimes, when couples are entering into a relationship where one or both parties have children a loving display of the child or children’s names may be incorporated into the design of both partners tattoos. This is a practice that is less likely to spur tattoo regret.
