These 45 People Sealed Their Love Forever with a Tattoo
When it comes to tattoos, people are making a decision that will, likely, last for the rest of their life. That’s why it can be incredibly touching when someone gets a tattoo for someone they are or were close to. It’s a visible symbol of their love for the subject of the tattoo that they can always carry with them.
A Son’s Artistry
Some people have qualms about getting tattoos for partners because the relationship may not last. Even the more cynical can appreciate a tattoo for a child, though.
This person has a pretty interesting tattoo. The multicolored robot isn’t a result of childish design by mistake, however. The tattoo is actually a tattoo of a drawing their son gave them, as seen on the left. This is a particularly interesting tattoo because it lets them keep a touching memory close at all times.

The Model and Her Tattoo
When it comes to touching tattoos, you don’t have to limit yourself to a human subject. In fact, pets can make for a cute tattoo that puts your best friend on quite a pedestal.
Just don’t expect them to be impressed with the tattoo. As this pet owner shows, the tattoo you get for your cat might evoke a lackluster reaction. Not to mention, the stylization and mention of “purr evil” make it all the more unique and touching.
These two are obviously Disney fanatics and we can’t blame them! They even managed to use their love for Disney and turn it into meaningful, corresponding tattoos.
One person’s tattoo is an outline of Peter Pan while the other person has a tattoo of Tinkerbell. This is cute not only for the concept of adding Disney into their tattoo but the camaraderie of these two. Even in a snapshot, any Disney lover knows Peter Pan can’t fly without Tinkerbell’s help.
Delicate and Touching
It’s fairly common for tribute or memorial tattoos to feature a name, maybe even the dates of a person’s life. Still, there are plenty of people who alter this design template to fit them.
This person veered in a more traditional route but didn’t choose to ink out a full name. Instead, they opted for a simpler cursive “G” in-between angel wings and topped with a halo. This tattoo was in honor of a lost loved one and “G” represents the initial associated with their name.
Dealing with loss can be a difficult part of life. That’s one of the reasons that memorial tattoos are so popular: you can still, in a way, keep the person you lost with you.
This person’s dad always wanted them to get matching tattoos. Unfortunately, they didn’t get the chance to do this in their lifetime. That’s why, after he passed away, they went to get a tattoo that he had in life. To make this even more emotional, they got the tattoo on his birthday.
Getting matching tattoos of animals is a cute way to create a corresponding tattoo with someone you love. These two opted for a pair of sweet raccoons.
However, they shook it up a bit by opted away from a realistic touch. Instead, they decided to lean towards the growingly popular geometric style. This made for a pair of adorable raccoons. It’s also a nice touch that the coloring on the raccoons slightly varies in the two designs.
“I Lava You”
There are a lot of tribute and memorial tattoos that get right to the point with dates or names. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for metaphor and symbolism.
This person got a large piece tattooed on their shoulder with beautifully contrasting elements. They explained that the volcano was a tattoo for their mom since they often told one another, “I lava you.” As for the honeycomb, that part’s dedicated to their sister who has the nickname Bee.
There are few bonds with the same degree of closeness as twins. After all, most twins spend a lot of their life together and have a unique shared experience.
As such, it makes sense that someone with a twin might want to get a heartfelt tattoo to capture the relationship. This person decided to do this by taking a minimalist approach to a picture of them and their twin as young children. The tattoo is well designed, placed, and perfectly executed.
Best Friends Forever
We’ve taken a look at some pet tattoos already. It’s no surprise either. Why wouldn’t there be a few tattoos not only to commemorate people but a man’s best friend as well?
This tattoo is almost as cute as the model who posed for the picture on the right. On top of that, the tattoo artist made sure to give the dog’s face enough fur and definition without losing the stylized approach. Plus, who could say no to the added sparkles around the head?
Almost every couple has a show that they love to watch together. Like many people, they might even see themselves a bit in the characters.
As it turns out, this identification and love for a show can make for an amazing corresponding set of tattoos. These two each got a tattoo of two of the main characters of the popular show Bob’s Burgers. All in all, Bob and Linda Belcher are a cute couple to choose from for this concept.
A Mother’s Love
Another tattoo that relies on linework over realistic shading, this tattoo could bring a tear to your eye. Even with the tragic backstory, the tattoo shows their deep love for one another.
This person got this tattoo of their mom and them because it was their favorite tattoo of the two of them. When they shared it, they stated that it came on the heels of her passing only two weeks prior. It’s a great way to keep a happy memory with them wherever they go.
A Note of Love
There are a number of ways that a couple can mark their love for one another in ink. People get tattoos of similar concepts, matching images, and even their partner’s name.
This couple got a pair of tattoos that complement one another and their own love of music. Even better, when their hands are intertwined like this, both the tattoos are visible and are clearly made to correspond to one another. It’s a creative choice for a creative couple.
Help From the Artist
There are some people who know exactly what they want with a tattoo and go to the artist with a design. Other times, the artist helps the client conceptualize their idea realistically.
This person knew that they wanted a tattoo that was representative of their own sensitivity and their love of their dog. The artist set to work and created a one-of-a-kind tattoo. It’s a soothing design that incorporates a beautiful mountain landscape. However, our eyes are on the cuddling human and dog.
One of the benefits of corresponding tattoos is that there are so many places to take inspiration from. This includes items you might find in your kitchen right now.
These two decided that the best way to commemorate their love for one another in their favorite drink. With one person getting a tattoo of a mug and the other of a teabag, it’s made complete by the subtle hearts. Plus, these are great tattoos when they’re apart too!
Brave Little Murdoch
There’s something about the bond between a pet and their owner that tugs at people’s heartstrings. This goes double for rescue animals who now enjoy peaceful, loving homes.
This person adopted their kitten Murdoch after Murdoch had a rough time. However, he was strong enough to survive life as a stray for months even though he was blind. We have to say, that backstory makes the helmet and shield all the more fitting for brave little Murdoch.
Carnations have long been a symbol of love. They also have a history as a symbol for grief, making this tribute to a lost friend all the more heartfelt.
The carnation in this tattoo is especially awe-inspiring. For one, the carnation is incredibly detailed. The style is realistic, down to a slight shadow below the stem and between the petals. It almost looks real! In addition to the carnation itself, the person’s name is also inked beside it in their handwriting.
Love With a Portrait
When it comes to getting a tattoo for someone, you want to carefully consider it. After all, it has to fit your personal style since you’re the one getting it but you want it to represent them too.
Sometimes, the best answer to this is to get a portrait tattoo. This way, you can see them doing something they loved in ink. At least, that’s the route this person took when they got a tattoo of this picture of their dad.
Simple and Touching
Sometimes, the best choice for a tattoo is simple. Of course, artists can do amazing things with color, shading, and tone but a little minimalism can go a long way too.
These two seem to agree that sometimes less is more. Their tattoos are simple stick figures with a few added details like the girl’s hair and dress. The connection between the two tattoos is more than style, though. Side-by-side, the string connects between the two cups.
Just like any other art form, the composition of a tattoo is important. By using contrast in the right way, you can create a striking final design that’s well-balanced and aesthetically beautiful.
This person got a tattoo that perfectly contrasted colors in a snapshot of memories with their late father. The two shadows sitting together in the foreground of the tattoo are this person and their dad. The games in front of them are depicted in vibrant colors, making them stand out.
There are times when a tattoo artist has the chance to work on something that means the world to the client. This tattoo artist showed off a tattoo she designed that fell into this category.
The tattoo is a colorful design done in shades of blue with a touch of gold for the halo. The design features a set of baby footprints with angel wings and a halo. The client explained that the tattoo was a tribute to their late son who had tragically passed away.
There are a lot of differing opinions on matching tattoos and some people don’t like identical tattoos. In those cases, corresponding tattoos can be a great alternative.
This person was excited about their first tattoo and posted it online right away. They actually took the opportunity to get a corresponding tattoo with their mom. This featured one of them getting a heart and the other getting the outline of a heart. The watercolor style also adds vibrancy to the tattoos.
They Definitely Look Alike!
When it comes to tattoos of pets, one challenge is to make sure you capture your pet’s personality. After all, few people want their tattoo to look like a generic animal.
Between the tattoo and the comparison image of the dog, it seems like they caught this pup perfectly. They even seem like they’re a little wary of their likeness on their owner’s arm! On top of the well-executed portrait, the framed border of the tattoo is visually interesting too.
Good Times Together
This is another example of a tattoo that has a lot of detail in it. However, it doesn’t quite lose the distinct stylized appearance and veer into realism.
The idyllic setting in the tattoo is actually a tribute tattoo. The person who got it stated that after their friend passed away a year before, they got this tattoo to remember that they had so many good times together. This fireside toast seems like a great memory to ink into your skin.
Memories in Ink
There are times when married couples meet later in life and forge new memories together. Some relationships have the chance to blossom early, though, with plenty of early memories.
This person knew their husband as a teenager. As such, it makes sense that when they decided to get a tattoo for him, they chose a memory from earlier in life. This tattoo takes inspiration from a photo of them poolside when they were only 17. It’s a nice way to highlight how long they’ve known one another.
Angels Reaching Out
There are certain tattoos that are popular throughout history. Religious topics are among this. Even aside from a tattoo that’s dedicated to a loved one, these are often meaningful and gorgeous.
This couple both got an angel tattoo on their shoulder. When they aren’t together, these skillfully done tattoos are done in such a way that they can stand on their own. On the other hand, when they’re standing side by side like they are here, the angels are clearly reaching for one another.
A Beautiful Wedding
When people get tattoos for people they love, they often look for a nod to some of their happiest memories. What’s happier than the wedding of a long-standing couple?
This person got a tattoo not just for their mom or their dad but for both of their parents. As such, it makes sense that they would choose a memory in which both parts of the couple are happy. With that criteria, their wedding day is a gorgeous design and a heartfelt tribute.
A Match Made in NAMCO
No matter if you’re an old-school gamer that was around when the game launched or are new to the concept, everyone knows Pac-Man. The little yellow circle was game-changing in the industry.
That’s why we have to appreciate this couple’s tattoo referencing that exact game. Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper couple’s tattoo if Pac-Man wasn’t accompanied by his counterpart, Ms. Pac-Man. With these tattoos, we’re sure this couple can enjoy an arcade night!
Tattoos for Brothers
When siblings are close, it can be a cute and meaningful concept to get corresponding tattoos. However, siblings have to find something that they all love and represents them in a way they like.
For cartoon lovers, this tattoo is especially interesting. This person shared these tattoos with the explanation that they got corresponding tattoos with their brothers. If you aren’t familiar with these characters, they’re Disney’s Huey, Dewey, and Louie, three siblings, and Donald Duck’s three nephews.
A Traditional Choice
There are some classic approaches to a tattoo done as a memorial. For instance, many of these tattoos feature a name or title with the start and end dates of the person’s life.
This person went for a more traditional approach with this tattoo for their dad. Still, they didn’t depend on simplicity for this design. While the banner itself is rather straightforward, the artwork behind it is full of well-executed details. This includes an anatomically correct heart and roses!
A Touching Memorial
There’s nothing quite as tragic as a young life lost. This person shared their tattoo that they got after their son passed away when he was young.
The tattoo itself is simple, beautiful, and striking. It’s made up of two main components. On one side, there’s a cartoon elephant with a small halo, symbolizing the loss. The other half of the tattoo is a small handprint. It’s a touching tribute to such a tragic loss.
To the Moon
This is another example of a tattoo that is gorgeous even if you don’t know the deeper meaning behind it. Not to mention, the artist nailed the appearance of the moon!
This person actually got this tattoo of the moon in an effort to honor their late grandfather. As beautiful as this tattoo is, we have to say we couldn’t see how this grandfather wouldn’t love it. Once again, the dot work and detail really make this tattoo shine.
There are certain tattoos that always have the potential to be eye-catching. While it’s simple, this conch shell perfectly captures the interesting find that beachgoers love.
Still, it isn’t necessarily a tattoo that you might get the deeper meaning of right away. Instead, this is another example of a tattoo that relies on symbolism to convey a message. Rather than just a love of the beach, this person got this tattoo because of their mom’s nickname for them: conch baby.
A Tasty Tribute
There are plenty of meaningful tattoos out there that carry an impressive aesthetic weight. However, sometimes something a little more lighthearted will suit you better.
That’s what these two decided, anyways. Their tattoos on the back of each of their ankles are more whimsical cartoon renditions of a burger and fries. If you look closely, you’ll notice they have curved hands as well. These outheld hands make a heart when the designs are merged for an extra cute touch.
A trend that’s always interesting for its hidden meaning is an audio wavelength tattoo. These can harbor any message and offer a message behind a tattoo that isn’t directly spelled out.
This person used an audio clip of their mom saying “I love you” for the wavelength component of their tattoo. Underneath it, they added a more explicit message reading “Love, Mom.” Interestingly, this part of the tattoo has a deeper meaning to it as well. It’s actually tattoed on copying their mom’s handwriting.
Tied Together With Brushstrokes
Watercolor tattoos are a beautiful style if you don’t want strictly defined borders. Instead, they often allow for variations much like an actual broad brushstroke might.
These two decided to get a semicircle each. This way, they could put them together to create a full picture. They further defined their own half of the semicircle, though, with the use of color. While one half is vibrant, the other is nearly solid black. However, there’s a bit of a blend where they meet.
Capturing a Moment
If there’s anyone to get a tattoo for, it’s someone who has been there for you and you can describe as one of your favorite people in the world.
That’s something that this person did exactly. They said the tattoo is of their “favorite person,” their dad. At first glance, you might wonder why this person opted for a picture of him with a jug of milk. It turns out this is actually their favorite picture of them.
The Key to Their Lock
There are certain objects that just go together. Sometimes, this is because one doesn’t work without the second object around! These can make for interesting tattoos.
One such tattoo is this lock and key. You can’t look at one of the images without automatically thinking of the other. This makes them a great piece of a set of corresponding tattoos. Not to mention, each tattoo is skillfully done in its own right. Specifically, the illusion they’re hooked into the skin is eye-catching.
His Only Steps
There are certain milestones and mementos that parents tend to carefully track. Most parents can show copies of momentos like footprints, handprints, ultrasounds, and more. They’re meaningful moments, after all.
Tragically, this person tattooed their son’s footprints on their skin after his untimely passing. They described the tattoo as “a lost son’s only steps.” The story behind this tattoo only makes it more meaningful and it’s a personalized and touching way to keep his memory alive and close.
Calvin & Hobbes, Together Again
We’ve already seen a couple of familiar characters used in corresponding tattoos. Luckily, there’s no shortage of pop culture references for people to choose from for their tattoos.
These two twins went for a pair of familiar characters, Calvin and Hobbes! If you aren’t familiar, Calvin and Hobbes is a comic that originally ran in newspapers from 1985 to 1995. The comic followed the two titular characters which is what inspired this tattoo. They even kept the classic designs of the characters.
Husband and Wife
There are a lot of tattoos that people get for somebody or for one another that are small designs. Suffice to say, this husband and wife couple didn’t hold back on their tattoos.
Rather than opting for a small tattoo, this couple devoted a good portion of their arm to their love. Both tattoos feature a vibrant skyline behind mountains and a forest on a lake. Individually, each tattoo shows a profile of a man and a woman. Together, the figures face each other.
Flowers for Fathers
Flowers have long held a deeper meaning. Almost all of them are assigned meanings depending on the type of flower it is and even the color of the pedals.
As such, it’s no surprise that flowers have become a staple in tattoo art as well. This person chose flowers for their tattoo which is a touching tribute to their father. Not only is the collection of flowers well done and beautiful but the “Love, Dad” written in his handwriting is a great touch.
Piecing It Together
Corresponding tattoos are great in a variety of forms. Among the most popular designs is two parts that make up a bigger picture.
These two decided to take this concept literally by getting a pair of puzzle pieces tattooed in place. The two pieces are tied together by more than shape too. They both feature a heart in the center and the inverse colors work well at setting them apart from one another without breaking the uniformity.
A Subtle Nod
There are certain tattoos that benefit from a broader canvas like a torso or even an arm. Others are best suited to delicate placement thanks to their small size.
This pair opted for tattoos that would fit on the side of their fingers. Not only is this creative placement for these tattoos but it’s also a clever and tiny nod to a favorite franchise. These little lightsabers are a great way to use a shared interest to come up with a meaningful tattoo.
Cute Little Cheeks
Another more lighthearted story of someone sealing their love with a tattoo is this cat tattoo. This person took the chance to ink their feline best friend into their arm forever.
The portrait is skillfully done too. It looks exactly like the cat in the picture, even down to the expression! There are additional details added as well, such as the background sunflower. Although, the perfect thing to tie this tattoo together is the banner that reads “Cheeks.”
