No relationship would be complete without a little insanity. Many people have the misconception that couple tattoos have to match, like, exactly matching. That couldn’t be further from the truth. These designs share a single phrase, but altering the layout of the words ever-so-slightly adds an extra level of dimension to the design.

The overall composition of an image greatly influences the appeal of a particular design or set of designs in this case. This can be deceiving when it comes to evaluating potential design ideas, but luckily for you, the quality of designs isn’t really in question here.

I know it’s not the best quality JPEG on the site, but the concept is solid. What really stands out is the contrast between the black and grey ink birds and the heart-shaped piece of red string.

This is a concept that’s been done over and over by numerous different artists. I can’t recall off the top of my head who the original creator was, but tribute designs, in my opinion, don’t really hurt anyone. Many artists of course would disagree and I understand where they are coming from. This particular set of Death Stars pack an incredible amount of detail into a very small space.

These spectacular back pieces are probably the last thing you expected to see on this list—which is what makes them so cool. Japanese style waves are, and always will be, one of my favorite things to see in ink.

Keep me wild.

This concept has been done to death, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting. Great ideas are always copied in mass. These designs are no exception and embody the very idea that opposites do indeed attract.

Sometimes simplicity is the only way to go. If you’re looking for something clean and crisp with a modern and minimalistic feel, something along the lines of these matching love tattoos may be in order.

Again, matching tattoos don’t always have to be matching. These two very different fonts perfectly compliment each other and bring a satisfying element to the mix that wouldn’t be there if each set of words were done in the same style font.

The matching sun and moon in a way illustrate the concept of opposites attracting. This moon was done with an ever-trendy gradient fade and the sun even has a little gradient action going on as well.
