10 Best Couples Tattoo Ideas: Best Tattoo Ideas for Two People

Whether you are lovers, brothers, mothers, or any other couple of people, couples tattoos are a great way to celebrate the bond you have with each other. 

The type of couples tattoo you get to commemorate this bond is up to you. There are matching couples tattoos, couples tattoos that fit together (ex. A lock tattoo on one person and a key tattoo on the other), or anything else that represents the two of you.

One of the best ways to get to get your creative juices flowing for any new tattoo is seeing examples of similar tattoos. That is why we put together our list of the 10 Best Couples Tattoo Ideas. 

Hopefully after checking them out, you will have some inspiration for a couples tattoo of your own, I mean, yours and someone else's own.

 

#10: Hearts

Hearts are a classic couples tattoo that can be tattooed in a large variety of ways. The heart couples tattoo below is done with a flower and script outline, that makes the tattoo look very fine, clean, and beautiful. The other example is a more old school style of a couples heart tattoo that is mixed with a pocket watch.

#9: Arrows and Semicolon

This couples tattoo combines two elements, the arrow and the semicolon. But, you can still have a great couples tattoo by using only one of the elements.  Arrow tattoos symbolize following your path. Semicolon tattoos symbolize a pause in life, and then, life continuing. The tattoo below is a great couples tattoo because it symbolizes following your path, pausing, then continuing on that path.

#8: Script

Script tattoos can say anything, from popular maxims to an inside joke that only you and your friend know. This versatility makes script tattoos perfect couples tattoos. In the tattoo below they both have the same script tattooed, but other popular script couples tattoos can have one part of the sentence tattooed on one person and finished on the other, or any of many various script combinations.

#7: Half Avocados

Everyone loves avocados, unless you haven't had one (I'm looking at you North Eastern USA). But, trust me, once you have one you will love it. They also make great couples tattoos, split in half, with their cute little avocado "pit" bellies. You can use any fruit, veggie, or really anything that has two halves for this couples tattoo idea. But, if it was me, I would go avocado every time.

#6: Parent and Child Walking

This tattoo goes out to all the Mama's, Daddio's, and children. A perfect couples tattoo idea for anyone that loves their kids or parents. You can do this couples tattoo in any style, realistic, line work (as seen below), color, etc.

#5: 5th Element Symbol

Fittingly the #5 entry on our Best Couples Tattoos list is this 5th Element tattoo. I am partial to the 5th Element, but this couple tattoo idea can be used for any cool symbol or mark that means something to you and the other half of the couple.

 #4: Flowers

You knew flowers were going to show up somewhere on a tattoo list, and here they are at #4 on the Best Couples Tattoo Ideas list. Admittedly flowers look cool tattooed, there are also many different types of flowers, so there is something for everyone. You can get these couples tattoos with flowers alone, or with script like the tattoos below.

#3: Geometric Penguins

Penguins, like some people, mate for life. Tattoos, for most people, last for life. That is why a penguin tattoo is the perfect couples tattoo. The Penguins in this couples tattoo don't need to be done geometrically, they can be done in any style that reminds you of waddling and sliding around with your partner in life.

#2: Spilt Yin Yang 

The Yin Yang is #2 on our Best Couples Tattoos list, because the Yin Yang signifies balance. And, what is better at keeping you balanced than your better half? This couples tattoo is perfect for the odd couple, the couple where one is grounded and the other is a little crazy. Opposites attract and make great couples tattoos and even better couples.

#1: King and Queen Skulls

#1 on our Best Couples Tattoo Ideas list is the King and Queen couples tattoo. For any couple that will be ruling their kingdom until death. This couples tattoo is also cool if you happen to split, you are still both kings and queens baby, whether you are ruling together or not. You can get these king and queen couples tattoos done in a variety of styles. Below they are done as skulls and card symbols.
