Butterflies anyone. These two have done alright with a rabble of butterflies in mid-flight. I like the way have stuck to one color silhouettes.

These boys are having a bit of bromance and decided to get matching hand tattoos. Aw, so cute.

We are all stars exploding into the night. These sisters have matching nautical star tattoos on their shoulders. Its a cool position for a star or round shaped tattoos.

Best friends for infinity and back. These small infinity signs represent this couples friendship to well after the grave and into rebirth again and again.

I don’t know if these tattoos are matching maybe they bumped into each other at a gig and bonded over their love of the looking at the stars.

What’s better than one dragon. Two dragons of course. These lovely ladies love a bit of fantasy in their lives with cute dragons and stars. The coloring not too bright which blends well with the natural tones of the skin.

This looks like two stages of the same tattoo. You will notice the one on the right has more detail and fill than the one on the left.

Another take on the old classic of the cup o phone. These tattoos draw inspiration from the early 20’s. Notice the children’s pea-coat school uniforms.

This is too cute. I love these two little love birds sitting on a perch. The artist has given it such detail with color and shading for a small tattoo.

A little hug from one pointer finger to the other. If this isn’t a tattoo it should be. It’s so fun.

The sun and moon on the same body. And a little bit astronomically correct as the moon rotates around the sun.

The three amigos strolled in with similar ideas for tattoos and came out with this cute trio of sunflowers and moons all in the same position.

This Egyptian themed sun and moon rocks with their lavish draping jewellery. Great line work that just proves that thin lines can create amazing effects. It seems to be a the trend in the tattoo world these days.

Birds of a feather flock together and these girls metamorphosed it into a tattoo to represent their friendship. Cute silhouettes of birds on a wire.

If you look closely at the moon it appears this tattoo is incorporating some pre existing scars into the work. This is so clever and adds definition to the piece.


Diamonds are a girls best friends. This tattoo is a common finger tattoo and you can see why. It looks gangster AF.

Would you believe me if I told you, your the key to my heart. This was obviously on this couples minds when it came to choosing their ankle tattoos. Nice line work for a simple design.

Buzz Lightyear would be flattered that someone got his famous quote tattooed on themselves. Great line work and little birds give it some added flair.

This is a fun use of bright colors and represents the polarities of life. It looks like someone has done a stencil cut out and uses the inverse as well.

Another take on the cut out heart. Its a lot rougher than the previous one but it still looks good in a totally different sort of way. A very unique take on the dueling hearts.

The classic anchor wrapped in a bow. These two items are used in many traditional style tattoos and these sisters have got a good piece that uses both elements well. The line work and shading give it an embossed look.

A couple of cute little anchors with hearts on the inside of the wrist. The color of the hearts is very interesting and unique.


Text as tattoos looks cool and a good way to mix it up is to break the sentence in two and put them on opposing limbs. Or maybe your bestie can finish the sentence for you.

This group of friends has all got anchors at the same time. Each anchor is a little bit different representing their different personalities yet remaining in unison.

The triple cup o phone. This is super cute. Each tattoo could stand alone and together they look great as well. Very simple and child like.

Music and friendship for life. Matching music clefts is a way of saying that you sing my heart song and share a love for the same bands as I do.

The classic friendship arrow on the biceps. A bicep is a good place for the elongated skinny tattoo as it makes your biceps look bigger if you have any at all.

These girls are taking flight with matching paper planes following the currents of the wind. It’s a nice and simple piece with clean line work.

This pair of Day of the Dead inspired skulls looks like its still in the healing phase. You can see the dead skin starting to protrude from the outline. It’s a nicely detailed job for such a small tattoo.

Sisters stick together. And these two will have something to remember each other by no matter how far they are apart. This font looks great on top of the foot.

This is cool. These almost matching hearts use each other’s personal fingerprints as the fill. It’s a very clever and unique take on the little black heart.

These interlocking hearts remind me of those old puzzles that as a kid. The artist has done a great job. The line work and perspective would have been hard to do.

The infinite heart representing a love that will carry on through the ages. A nice and simple design that works as a stand alone piece.

This is a bold infinity heart. It’s on the wrist which is a great spot for these small and simple tattoos.

A two color infinity heart. Nice and quaint and it uses negative space well.

Another infinity heart that incorporates text. The line work is amazing and I love how the artist has used thick and thin lines to represent these old chums standing by each other through thick and thin.

This is a cute infinity heart that uses fat line work. The skinny lines of the text mix it up a bit and provide texture and balance.

This text seems like it was taken from the couples wedding vows. The spot on the outer edge of the fore arm is a great place for text or long and slender tattoos.

This is kind of bleak and cute at the same time. It uses a font from the movie title of  A Nightmare Before Christmas and works well on the bicep.

The pinky swear was the childhood equivalent of a legal document. These two best friends live and die by the pinky swear.

Roses are red, violets are blue let’s go get drunk, and get a tattoo.

It’s no wonder this unlikely duo has made it onto the skin countless times all over the world. The cartoon developed a cult following by people young and old.


Now this is a handy little tattoo that is complete when these two friends meet.

The lion symbolizes strength and loyalty and the arrow is the symbol for friendship so it makes sense that two chums would get it inked on their forearms.

We all have the wild friend in the bunch and there is always someone who is stuck with the task of looking out for them.

These best friends love ice cream so much they got it tattooed on their arm.

This nice biplane forearm tattoo features tidy line and shading work.

I don’t know the meaning of this symbol but it looks like a rabbit with special needs. When you and your baby love cupcakes it a great idea to get them tattooed on your above your ankle.

This is a very unique tattoo of some hippy looking merman playing banjos. WTF?

Roses are red, violets are blue, lets go get drunk and get a tattoo.

I’m being followed by moon flower, moon flower, moon flower.

A simple yet effective friendship arrow tattoo done with style.

Caption this: “Yay, we got matching tattoos”.

These three girls drink and swear like sailors so they got these anchor tattoo to remind them to get their sea legs on a night out.

It’s tattoo for these best friends. Nothing brings friends close than sitting in a chair and going through extreme pain together.

This is another classic cup o phone.

Have you heard the tale of the rose and the turtle? I haven’t and I don’t even think one exists but as you look at these two tattoos hopefully one forms in your mind.

These two friends be the new PBnJ.

These leg tattoos are so cute.

Only this couple know the meaning behind this tattoo. Perhaps it’s their initials.

Well I haven’t seen Dumbo in while. It’s good to see him turning up in ink on someones skin.

We are all aware of these two friends in the gang.

The cup o phone is ringing again.

Flower power may have been a thing in the sixties and these two besties are calling for a revival.

Here is a tidy tattoo of a Japanese symbol just above the ankle.

I swear by the moon and the stars and the sun.

Dear lord the cup o phone is ringing again.

This is oddly terrifying but I can not look away. The colors look great together and the piece has a lot of depth. It would have been an intricate piece to do and requiring many hours in the chair.

One life, One love. Yes indeed, Bob Marley was a wise man and spoke these words. This couple has taken it to the next level and imprinted them on their arm, together, forever. The flowing font looks great situated below the crown.

The wrinkly skin in this photo tells a story. This couple has been king and queen for a long time. These tidy tattoos on the snuff box ( the little dip between the thumb and pointer finger) are done well and recently by the look.

The classic king and queen on the pointer finger. When it comes to getting finger tattoos it’s better to keep them simple so they will remain looking good over time.

These are some bold black wrist tattoos. It just goes to show that black can look as interesting and defined as color.

The classic in a classic spot. That’s all I’m going to say.

A pair of nice crowns. I love the sharp and jagged lines. A very nice simple and small tattoo ideal for the wrist or ankle.

These crowns are very cartoony and remind of early Disney cartoons. It’s a lot more fun and whimiscal than many of the other tattoos on the list that have gone with a more detailed intricate crown jewels style.

The crown affair yet again. These two designs are simple with a little bit of detail and sometimes that all you need to get the message of unity across.

Another great use of a cursive font and the crown do more of the job of complimenting the font.

Here’s a lovely couple sporting some lovely crown tattoos. I like the chandelier look on the females shoulder tattoo. The inside of the shoulder is a great spot for almost any tattoo. If you go too big it will turn into a shoulder piece so it’s a good idea to keep it small unless of course, you want a shoulder piece.

These two simple crown tattoos on the hand have been really well done. They look cool with their simple lines and shading. A great way to represent the togetherness of the couple.

This is one of the best Day of the Dead inspired tattoos featuring crowns that I have seen. The colors look amazing and the line work is second to none. I love the use a red and the detail on the jewels.

Another one that uses font and a small crown. This one has colors and it really adds to the tattoo. Very cool.

Nothing says I love you like stumbling the streets drunk on a big night and getting some matching crown tattoos.

Hand me the royal tattoo gun please. These two have gone for the King and Queen hand tattoo’s with a lovely font and solid colored crowns.


This crown affair is one of fine color matching and shading. The crowns look great together and great as stand-alone tattoos. The gradient of the colors really make these tattoos pop. Well done.

This is a larger version of the king and queen from playing cards that still looks good. It just goes to show that this style can look good in a bigger form. It’s very minimal but still works well.

The iconic playing card tattoo on the hand. Imagine strolling down the street with your love one looking bad ass as your tattoos match and complement each other.

This tattoo features the king and queen of the dead. The skulls have a gothic yet comical aesthetic and the red K and Q look out of place in a good way.

Another take on the king and queen of the dead but this one takes it to the next level with both skeletons offering their heart to one another. Very nice work indeed.
