Getting inked by yourself is fun. But it is equally fun and even more exciting to do when you’re accompanied by your family, friends, or even your S.O.! As matching tattoos are getting more and more popular, this becomes a bonding experience which makes your relationship with your friend or beau tighter than ever! For couples who are in it for the long-run, getting permanent ink as a symbol of a long-lasting bond is a cool and unconventional way to show your commitment to one another.
But just like any other tatt, choosing the right design that will resonate with you and your partner is a difficult yet exciting decision to make. So if you’re looking for design ideas, we got you covered! Here’s a selection of minimalist couple tattoos to consider for your first (or next) ink.
12 Matching Minimalist Tattoo Designs Perfect for Couples
1. A Special Date
For the couple who's big on milestones, a tattoo of a special or significant date is perfect! Whether it's your first date or your anniversary, this is something that will obviously be unique to you both! Plus, you won't forget to celebrate that important occasion!
2. Word of Honor
Constant reassurance is a key factor in every relationship. So what better way to reassure your partner than to have it etched on your skin! A subtle flowing script on your forearm or even the traditional wedding vow on the side of your wrist is a good way to honor your promise and loyalty to each other.
3. Pinky Promise
Speaking of promises, a good way to keep your promises to each other is by etching them permanently—and we mean that in a literal sense. And what a cute design to consider than a drawing of a pinky promise!
4. Lock and Key Tattoo
You can also opt for a simple one which holds meaning by itself. A subtle way to show that you definitely match each other!
5. A Simple Ring
For couples who want something out of the ordinary, a ring tattoo is perfect! You can have your names etched on each other’s ring finger or just opt for a simple ring band with a bit of morse code, just like this one, to make it extra special!
6. Dedication Script Tattoo
Show your love to everyone by etching the words “soul” on you and “mate” on your S.O.—it will complete the word “soul mate” when your hands are intertwined! What a cute and sweet way to profess your love to each other!
7. A Quote or Phrase
The beauty of getting a meaningful tattoo is its story. People would be curious to know the story behind your tatt. So if you have a quote or a phrase that you live by and has an equally sentimental meaning to your partner, then this is the perfect design idea for you!
You can even have it written in Baybayin characters just like this, which is translated as “pag-ibig.”
Or this tatt in Japanese which means “true love waits.”
8. Matching Dainty Hearts
As cliche as it looks, you can’t go wrong with a tiny heart tattoo you can wear on both your wrists. Done as an outline in red or black, this is perfect for couples who don’t mind getting cheesy ink to flaunt their relationship.
Butterfly tattoos can have a myriad of meanings. But whether you want them to mean a renewed love or the start of a lasting relationship, there’s no denying they’re undeniably pretty to look at. Besides, you can either get them done as an intricate artwork or a simple outline design in pairs.
10. Meaningful Numbers
When you’re not too keen on dates, a number or set of digits with an ambiguous meaning to outsiders can be a more low-key way of commemorating an anniversary or special encounter.
11. Your Partner’s Initials
Inking your partner’s initials or the first letter of their name is an undeniably sweet gesture. If you’re sure to walk down the aisle soon, may we suggest having it down on both your ring fingers as a symbol of commitment!
12. Different Designs but the Same Size and Placement
Ever heard the phrase “same same but different?” Well, here’s that concept executed as a tattoo! If you and your partner can’t seem to decide on the same design, why not get an artwork of your choice but placed in the same area! You can also agree on the size so at least they look pretty similar from afar!
