Getting matching tattoos is a big commitment. For the BFFs that know their love will last forever great idea are BFF tattoos. BFF necklaces or bracelets are good ways to pledge your friendship. But why not try something a little more permanent? Maching tattoos are for life and that’s why it takes time to find the perfect best friend tattoos.
Aristotle said that “Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.” BFF is an initialism of the phrase best friend(s) forever. It’s a term of endearment used for selected close friends. Best friends are the family that we choose.
There’s always this one person who you can rant to whenever, someone who understands you and gives you a shoulder to cry. That is your best friend. Your best friends don’t necessarily have to be your childhood friend or a person you’ve known since Kindergarten. They can be your siblings, parents, or even aunts.
The main reasons to get a best friend tattoo is to symbolize the incredible bond that you two have built over the years. Best friend tattoos are more like symbols that represent your friendship. So if someone notices that you have matching tattoos with another person, they will at once understand that yeah, these two are best friends.
Because all friendships are unique, you may have a special design idea in mind. BFF tattoos can be exact matches, slightly related, or complete opposites—this type of ink is as individual as you and your BFF.
If you’re getting a small tattoo that’s more like a symbol, the ideal spots to get it inked include your wrist, ankle, near your ear, or on your fingers. Make sure that both of you get your tattoos on the same spot as this way you can match it together. For example, some tattoos include a half heart, so if you both get half of the heart tatted on your wrists, both of you can join your hands together and make the heart whole. Of course sometimes different placements look cool too as long as the tattoo designs match.
Good ink doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes simple linework or a friendship symbol tells a lot about a friendship. See our gallery for some more inspiration before taking the leap together.
