Finding matching tattoos for you and your loved one is an art-form. You’ve come to the right place! Here are over 30 brilliant matching tattoos. It’s not ludicrous to be self-aware in your eternal love towards your life companion, but it’s blasphemous to ever think that this ink would one day remind you of what could be a potential future disintegration of two soul’s paths. Do you begin a new relationship knowing it would end? Didn’t think so.
What can be said about you and your partner’s shared love for inks you would love to cherish in your day-to-day life? This love transcends a passing relation, and the ink you share together is just one small part of the puzzle that right now holds you two together.
With no further ado… here are….the very best matching tattoos
Brilliant Matching Tattoos:
30. Babushka dolls
These visibly decreasing in size Russian dolls are quite known as the nesting dolls. The babushka tattoos make perfect sense for the grandparent relationship to their youngster being carried in the womb at one point in their life, and then to the smallest child. The traditional shapeless Russian jumper costume is known as a sarafan, and was worn by peasant girls in Russia until the 20th century. The ink in a way tells a story of a family tree and pays a direct homage to the widespread proverb that states that “blood is NOT water”.
These dolls could translate to three sisters or brothers as well. Though the youngest in the family, I kinda turned out to be the Gulliver giant. Still, the smallest matching tattoo Babushka on my arm could be a charming nostalgia of “What once was”, and a wonderful throwback to a warm and heart-felt sibling relationship.
29. Old school – Tetris game
We all long for independence, but we all deliver a maudlin spectacle combined abundance when we learn that we are the part that is missing from the other person, and they’re willingly being dependent on us. An awesome matching tattoos homage to the Russian game virus all youngsters were affected by in the late 80s and 90s.
28. Princess Bitch (no, I really believe she should reconsider renaming herself)
The toxic relationship of these two can only be described as perpetual chase of a girl that manages to keep getting caught over and over again. Maybe she doesn’t want you, Mario, have you considered it?
Tsk, tsk, tsk…. You should consider your girlfriend just might have a hidden agenda if she asks you to get this kind of matching tattoos.
27. I’ll be the King of Hearts, and you’re the Queen of Spades
As they say, the king and queen always make it through. And though I wish I was the ruler of a country (particularly England) I am a lucky man if my gal thinks she found the king of her heart, and I’ll be happy to make her the queen of mine. This artwork is quite simple, and unsurprisingly the theme of matching tattoos covering the topics of king and queens of hearts, and sometimes even jacks and queens (that queen seriously messed up when choosing her lover!) can be found in ample examples.
This tattoo is not trying to be edgy and bad-ass, but it gives a much superior story than boringly having each others names tattooed wrapped up in a heart. Commitment is a huge promise, and this tattoo for me seems to be an even bigger milestone to reassurance of a lifelong relationship than signing a document that could later be resigned, and that vow revoked like it was just a page of my life waiting to be ripped apart. The well-embroidered font of the letters just adds to making this artwork equate to beautiful aesthetics quite pleasing to the eyes. And I’d much rather feel like a king, then a Jack (sorry, not sorry Jack owners 🙂 )
26. Music lovers united
It’s a treble clef, it’s а stave, it’s a music composition. This matching tattoo focuses on their sprawling, ambitious blend of unconditional love they share for the music.
For their intimate endeavors just might end in an offspring of the likes of Mozart.
That story sounds a tad too much like August Rush.
And a little bit too hopeful.
P.S. Isn’t the counterpart to treble clef usually a bass, or is that a lesbian couple? (No offense, just blurting out random thoughts 🙂 )
25. The Corpse Bride is luring Victor to a never-land of their own
Darkness surrounds Tim Burton’s imagery, but nobody could deny his genius sense for writing many brilliant movies.
Balancing an arty atmosphere, but also keeping graphic clarity this tattoo artist puts out a macabre looking skeleton bride, but at the same time stays true to her face look that brims with optimism, giving her ever-so slightly distorted eyes and natural looking grim that at the end fail to cover the obvious – she is still cadaverous.
On the other arm we can notice the surprised and innocent looks of Victor that is somewhat hesitant and unsure whether taking her arm is the right thing to do, or is that salacious enchantment not worth going through hell doors for, for something that anyone in their right mind would deem impossible.
I find it quite funny that the guy has the bride tattooed on him. Maybe he is the depiction of a beast with questionable worth going through trouble for, and this tattoo is the result of an epiphany, and the final choice that his girlfriend is now ready to risk it. Or maybe they’re just huge Tim Burton’s fans. Doesn’t change the fact that this is an awesome matching tattoo artwork!

24. The stag and the doe
Harry Potter is the boy who lived. This matching tattoo tells the story of the unrequited love of his professor Severus Snape towards Lily. The Protégé shield charm takes a different form in every person, but in a surprising twist the conspicuous love of Sirius makes his shield form change after her death, making it the same as hers – a striking acquitted doe. This tattoo paints well-executed, clean, black lines that exquisitely outline the stag and its female counterpart. Its simplicity continues to the the bottom of each tattoos where it continuous its path to artistically written words that show their love conquers all.
And he will protect her.
23. Batman and Robyn
This tattoo is ас straightforward as it can be; this man’s trawl for finding their partner has ended. I would totally be down to get the Robyn counterpart only in case I was a big Robyn fun, but as I am just the casual viewer of the Batman movies, I’m not sure I’d be willing to succumb to be the less steely and for the most part the less known counterpart of the ultimate Gotham star favorite.
22. Gluttony as the most forgiven deadly sin
This is a simple artwork that you can get at your local tattoo shop, but it’s a fun matching tattoo that not many have thought of. I think if I get it I’d constantly have my mouth remain moist for far too long that my saliva glands are going to cease to function. Too risky to consider really!
21. San Francisco artwork
20. Ohana means family…
…and family means no one gets left behind.
Who doesn’t love this alien creature with those bauble spikes growing out from its back? Stitch is the perfect caricature to correspond to you or your crazy sibling’s character.
19. Belle and the Beast
They say this cartoon promotes bestiality. The hidden twisted tone of this Disney story redeems itself when, at the end of the day, he actually transforms into a gorgeous handsome prince with long blonde luscious locks.
But what if she actually wants that beast? Her big, rough and hairy partner, the true protector she fell in love with?
This tattoo only outlines the forms of these two lovebirds, but I doubt anybody would mistake it for another couple. And I do agree that many times, less is more. But even so, the depiction of the beast has much sharper, bolder and murkier lines to show for his gloomier nature.
18. Wall-E’s modest gift to Eve
I know by now you might feel as if I am constantly spamming you with lovey-dovey cartoons, and I am just going to tell you I am not going to deny my love for the cutesy relationships that these cartoons have brought forward. They are a meaningful bunch to me.
If somebody was to ask me whether I remember Wall-E, I would be offended. Remember? I vividly can recall each scene these two robots shared on screen.
This stunning artwork has been contoured so well it makes you feel the dirt and rustiness of Wall-E. At the same time his widely dilated doe-eyes, the angle of his head and the timeworn boot pot highlight his fragile, diffident, but chivalrous nature. On the other hand we can see the depiction of Eve, an intelligent robot, whose spread out shading gives for an all-around metallic, suave look that shows she represents an evolved specie as a contrast to Wall-E. Nevertheless, Eve’s eyes and facial expression, though only seen in the upper part of a black circle that represents her face are drawn so well, one does not have to have seen this cartoon to know that her laugh is the furthest away from an evil grin or look-down-upon kind of wickedness.
17. A double-entendre
In this pairing both of them lived a thousand lives. The artist drawing is not sharp, but the ink and the tattoos describe a pairing that is united in their differences. They do seem like a humorous couple that’s a delight to know.
16. The mismatched pair of animals
Now these tattoos are in their close vicinity. Those wolves’ teeth, the skull beneath and those long bones on the size emphasize a ghastly story in the making. Keep those legs far from each other at all times!
15. Love is all around us
This tattoo sustains an air of precious fragile beauty. Retracing the roots of the tattoo is of course the rainbow flag combined with the ultimate symbol for love – the heart. It’s a saccharine mess, one might say, but if you are an LGBT ally I’m sure you know that this tattoo perfectly describes the end of an almost always, an overwrought hard relationship with what the world perceives their values to represent.
14. Mr & Mrs X Matching Tattoos
13. Until eternity Matching Tattoos
That’s one cleverly ironic message written on the top hat. Haven’t they already plunged to death? But dotage is merely the start of body decay. Their love will transcend all and it won’t die in their lifetime nor it ever will. Till always.
12. Coffee lovers united in the aesthetics of blossomed roses
Now let’s move on ones that are literally matching tattoos as opposed to complementary ones. These small coffee cups are surrounded with flowers all around reveal the average person’s morning anodyne – the coffee.
Though the picture’s accent and center of attention is undoubtedly the coffee, the artwork does not stop here as its embroidered nature shows leaves and roses whose colors are not the clear in this monochrome nature, but as art imitates life, I would give them a striking scarlet red color that supplements the complex elegant design of the cup’s appearance.
At the top of the cup another leave-like dimension stands out to represent the heat. The style of these leo tattoos are consistent array of labyrinth-like structures that, together with the colors my mind just splattered over the gray scale, maintains the atmosphere of a tranquil and balanced representation of life and love.
11. The alpha pair of wolves
Wolves show ubiquitous conduct of the dominance game. And this means that the alpha male can choose, and the female alpha wolf has dire competition to prove that she should be the one he needs to choose.
I am not sure how much this pairing knew about wolves when getting the tattoo, but even if they did, I don’t think they have been telling this story to the world behind the meaning of their tattoos. That’s because, usually the males don’t pick only one female alpha, and as such end up being the father of many, if not most cubs in their pack of living wolves.
Additionally, all wolves are submissive to that alpha. I don’t want to think that a girl is okay with her partner knocking up random girls for the fun of it, nor with treating her like crap, but inevitably that doesn’t take away credit from the artistry involved in inked, well-shaded depictions of sinister, coy, treacherous animal beings that do not exactly depict a love counterpart ink, but do embrace a badass attitude and sublime aesthetics that made me fall in love with it at first glance.
I must give a shout out to those discontinuous triangular shapes behind them. Is it to help draw symmetrical figures of those wolves, is it Illuminati or is it something I haven’t thought of yet? …. It looks awesome and looks like picture perfect. Need not ask for anything more!
10. Anchor versus wings
This tattoo is rejoicing both partners’ qualities. She’s a rebellious dreamer that exerts strong influence on his serene conduct. He’s the rock that makes her feel secure that she will land softly if her wings ever get broken. The artist plays with the colors as well. She brings the color of his world. And his carefully shaded anchor might define a strong confident character.
9. She’s the world map, and he’s the compass
There’s a lot of world to be explored, but he has got just the right tool.
8. Relationship goals discovered
7. The dragon inspired tattoo
These large-sized tattoos are transparent in their point to boldly depict strength, protection, power and independence. Though many follow the tribal style, this couple cherishes the Japanese dragon with horns. I love that their tattoos are very different, with his tattoo being very large-scaled throughout his whole back, and then hers is located only on her side and covering a small side of her buttocks.
Though it is quite difficult for me to be concentrating on the details and aesthetics of their tattoos when the body of the girls itself is an aesthetic in need to be cherished, I know that the dragon tattoos are very sought-after and have a rather juxtaposed symbolism of their representation. Nevertheless, these matching tattoos for me correlate to a strong ink adoration, uniqueness in style of cherishing a love for something together, but still figuring out ways to paint out a stand-alone styled piece. The artist paid fantastic attention to detail to make these tattoos look as if it was rather easy to evince each gender’s strongest body points, and yet stay true to the idea that these tattoos have to complement each other.
6. Cross-bow and arrow
Now these simple lines are missing something when not with one another. But why should her fingers always be tied to one another? I cannot think of a reason right away really.
Nevertheless, a nice matching tattoo there!
5. Seal it with a kiss
This one is a cutesy and child-like idea that easily awakened the sentimentalist in me. Let’s all travel to Disneyland and sense the relationship solidity these mice have. Enthralled with their exuding love there’s a visible disconnection to whatever might be lurking out there. It’s been 90 years already. Ready for more matching tattoos?
4. Lady and the Tramp
3. Be my butterfly, sugar, baby
These butterfly matching tattoos take the form of a sinuous line and strange maze-like patterns that clearly takes inspiration from the tribal design tattoos for a representation of courage.
The color is solid black which gives them a sharp appearance, but the lines are quite lenghty and curvy, which then adds in the soft touch of the feminine beauty and purity. The butterfly in itself is an animal that looks soft, gentle and is light as a feather, but combined with these tribal patterns, I’d say is a winning combination in being pleasantly appealing to the eyes, feminine enough for a girl, masculine enough for a guy, which at the end results for an ambiguous non-gender pattern. Moreover, these tattoos face towards a different direction, that when combined, look as if the butterfly opened its wings and is now set free to fly away.
A tattoo, that I won’t have any doubts to put on with my girl tomorrow, if only I had the proper amount of money and the artist ready to take me through the process.

2. Fallen Angels
It doesn’t seem apt to get this tattoo with your sibling, but first impressions are frequently wrong. I have gone through hell with my brother, and we embarked an arduous journey to become what we are now. We now represent these grown-up demons with soaring passion to only enjoy life’s splendors. Fucked up and evil, but hey, we’re one and the same! Naked truth and stripped pain is flowing from within those obscure daunting eyes. Love that the halo is not omitted! Innocence is a buried skeleton in the closet, but it’s still part of us.
1. Geometric brilliance Matching Tattoos
If you’re not familiar with the dots to lines tattoo, or with Chaim Machlev’s artwork, it’s time to be. Chaim as an artist refuses to put labels on his style, so why should we? But people are people, and we need description to satisfy the need of explaining what we see, so what his artwork represents is now called geometric minimalism.
His artworks are bursting with concise clean lines that have a weird asymmetric and mystified way of achieving symmetry and sophistication. They are made with a clear vision of accentuating what needs to be accentuated, and he tends to have a different way of approaching each person’s need, according to the body type he’s working with. Both the girl’s and the guy’s matching tattoo work well as a stand-alone piece, as it’s abstraction level is high enough for people to not feel the need to find the missing piece of the puzzle, yet the lines are craftily put together to form an even higher level of art when put together.
This unconventional art describes a risky approach to redefining the way tattoos are looked at, because it is not only about the tattoo’s aesthetic, but in the forefront it is really about the people’s non-symmetric body part(s) that need to find a new natural position when locked inside a new non-reversible form of art spread out over what once was only naked skin.
