1 - Matching Finger Tattoos

Ancient Romans believed that the ring finger—the fourth finger on the left hand—contained a vein that ran straight to the heart. They called this vein vena amoris.

It’s believed that this is why wedding rings are traditionally worn on this finger, even to this day.

Keeping with this tradition, couples are now starting to get matching tattoos on their ring fingers in place of, or in addition to, actual wedding bands.

For the same reason wedding rings are worn on this finger, choosing to get matching tattoos on your ring finger is incredibly romantic.

The tattoo design can be anything of significance to you and your relationship. For instance, you could get your partner’s initials tattooed around your finger, or opt for a meaningful symbol of your relationship and shared affection.

2 - Soulmate Tattoos

Russian tattoo artist Jio Maia is renowned for her unique and complex matching tattoos and the story that inspires them—the myth of Aristophanes as told by Plato—which tells us about the origin of soulmates.

According to the myth of Aristophanes, humans used to be joined at the spine. They were born soulmates, sharing one body so they could be together forever.

But an angry god cut the soulmates’ shared body in half, separating them and forcing all of humanity to have to search for their soulmate.

Jio’s tattoo designs celebrate the idea of finally finding your soulmate in a unique and intricate design that can be described as Line Art or Chaotic Blackwork.

3 - Yin Yang Tattoos

Yin Yang is an ancient Chinese philosophical concept that symbolizes two different halves that fit perfectly together to create a complementary whole.

Yin is thought to represent feminine energy while Yang represents masculine energy, and together they make a perfect circle.

Matching Yin Yang tattoos are perfect if you and your partner are different in ways that balance and complement one another, making the relationship greater than the sum of its parts.

4 - Hidden Meaning Tattoos

hidden meaning tattoos

Every tattoo is meaningful, but these types of matching tattoos are a little more abstract than others.

Hidden meaning tattoos are unique and represent something specific to your relationship with your loved one.

For instance, geographic coordinates are commonly used in matching hidden meaning tattoos among couples. Some popular examples include the coordinates where a couple first met, first fell in love, or where they spent their honeymoon.

Alternatively, the hidden meaning of a tattoo can be a secret that only the two of you share.

5 - Matching Quote Tattoos

There’s no shortage of poems, novels, movies, or songs about love.

It’s not uncommon for a line from any one of these sources to sum up a couple’s philosophy about love or their relationship.

If this rings true for you, a quote may be the perfect idea for a matching tattoo design between you and your partner. You could both get the same tattoo, or you could split the quote between the two of you.

This way, the quote is only complete when you’re together.

The word “love” and the symbol of the heart are some of the most popular tattoos used to express undying love among couples.

For the romantic and sentimental types, it’s all about wearing your heart on your sleeve—sometimes literally.

Matching love or heart tattoos cannot be misinterpreted. They make a permanent and bold statement about what’s most important to you as a couple.

They’re a simple, powerful, and iconic promise of forever love.

7 - Semi-matching Tattoos

Sometimes, your matching tattoos don’t have to be identical. Instead, you can have “two pieces of a puzzle” that compliment or complete each other.

Semi-matching tattoos look as good together as they look separately.

They’re also easy to customize and match your different tattoo aesthetics. Say one wants more shading or bolder colors this could be done without ruining the intent of getting matching tattoos.

8 - Infinity Tattoos

The infinity symbol is a never-ending loop with neither beginning nor end—a symbol representing eternity. As such, matching infinity tattoos are perfect for depicting eternal love.

The symbol is an apt metaphor for how love is limitless, has no boundaries, and will continue forever.

Matching infinity tattoos are poignant and deeply meaningful acknowledgments of the love and bond a couple shares. Better still, they’re unisex in design, which makes them perfect for any couple.

9 - Matching Anchor Tattoos

Among couples, matching anchor tattoos signify that you’ve found your safe harbor in each other.

When ships drop their anchors, it signifies that their days of wandering the rough seas are over. They’ve arrived at their destination and have discovered calm waters. It’s smooth sailing from then on.

Anchors are also a romantic take on the traditional sailor’s tattoo, symbolizing hope, salvation, and calmness—all qualities you’d want in a partner.

10 - Minimalist Tattoos

Minimalist tattoos are perfect if something quick and subtle is what you’re looking for. Remember, with more intricate designs you can easily spend hours getting inked.

Minimalist tattoos are great if you and your partner have different styles. Minimalist tattoos are simple and often agreeable to everyone.

But this isn’t to say that they’re any less clever or meaningful. They’re all about symbolism and odes to what you both hold dear.

A classic minimalist matching tattoo idea is the “x” and “o” —because sometimes that’s all you need to get the message of forever love across.
