Couples and Matching Tattoos
Life has taught many of us that love is blind, and when it comes to tattoos, nothing has changed, as some couples get tattooed together in order to show their "undying" and "permanent" love for one another.
Most times the tattoos are matching or complimentary tattoos, which start on one of the people and continue on to the other to complete the image.
There are some that are wiser in this endeavor, as they will place somewhat neutral themes like a heart or a cross, that could be included in a new relationship if the current one doesn't end up lasting.
Another thing that could be considered if contemplating a tattoo as a couple, is doing them smaller and in possibly less conspicuous places.
If you choose the right theme it isn't as important in that regard, as it can also be showcased as a standalone tattoo.
Hopefully most reading this won't fall for the romantic but naïve notion the relationship will last forever, at least when putting permanent ink on your bodies together.

Matching Heart Tattoos
This first example of matching heart couple tattoos is one that would be a good decision to make, as a heart could apply in a variety of circumstance if your relationship breaks up. It could be defined as love for anyone. For example, a son, daughter, mom, dad, etc. In other words, you have a fall back option with these.

Matching Cross Tattoos
Here's another example of a good choice with matching tattoos, as they are good as a standalone tattoo, and could signify something personal, such as the Christian cross.

More Troublesome Matching Tattoo
Here is an example of a matching tattoo that transfers from one person to another. That creates a problem, assuming the tattoos below are only partially completed on each person's arm. If both are complete and are only being displayed as two halves, than it's not as bad. But it looks like the couple chose to put half of the tattoo on each arm to complete the whole.
It's a good sentiment and makes for an interesting tattoo design, but again, that's only if the relationship is a long term one.
Matching Wrist Tattoos
I like these two tattoos below because they're able to be seen and enjoyed via the saying itself. They're great because they can also be included as a continuation as well. Again, that's wiser than putting them together in a way that they're inseparable.

Key, Lock, Heart Tattoo
These are a fun and compelling way to express your love towards one another, while at the same time being able to enjoy the tattoo individually. Both can tell a current or past story, and also offer hope for the future.
For example, in the case of the locked heart, a story could be told of a failed love or that you're looking for someone with the key to your heart.

Dragon Matching Tattoos
I really like these matching dragon tattoos. They look fantastic, are placed in a relatively quiet area, and work as a matching or individual tattoo for each person.

Tattoos of Eyes
These eyes tattoos are awesome to be no matter why they were chosen by the couple. Interesting that they need to hug to be able to show the tattoos in a side-by-side manner. If they were walking together the tattoos would be facing in the opposite direction.

Matching Strawberry Tattoos
While I like the quality of the strawberry tattoos below, it's a little off to me as to the placement, as well as the dripping factor. A dripping strawberry tattoo down the middle of the back must mean something to the couple, as it's somewhat of an odd choice.

Here's another one of those tattoo decisions that leave you scratching your head as to the why of it.
This is the only toaster tattoo I've ever seen, and to have it inked on as a matching tattoo for a couple is fascinating indeed. Maybe it represents their favorite time of the day: breakfast, or an inside joke in their relationship.

Matching Couple Tattoo Designs
So there's a wide array of tattoos that couples or people decided to have inked on them; most in as matching or continuous tattoos.
Just remember to consider the probability of your relationship lasting when making decisions you may eventually be sorry for.
In these cases it's best to include a tattoo theme that works together or by itself.
