Couples who get tattoos do so to illustrate their undying love for one another. These romantic illustrations are usually inked on the same part of the body and are typically identical images, but there are exceptions. For instance, one person can get a heart-shaped key tattoo while the other person gets a heart-shaped lock, symbolizing the power of one person to access the love and commitment of another.
Couple tattoos do not have to be romantic in nature, despite it being the most common theme. A couple that is crazy about cats can get matching feline tattoos on their arms. Comic book couples can get their favorite character or logo inked on matching body parts. The only thing that matters with tattoos for couples is that it represents some aspect of the couple’s relationship. This aspect is what unites the couple and unity is the reason couples get these tattoos.
