Ready to take your relationship to the next level? Nothing says true love like getting some ink together. There are as many ways to show your love with a couple’s tattoo in Austin as there are ways to fall in love. Here are just a few for inspiration.
8 Ideas for a couple’s tattoo in Austin
Share your passions: No matter what brought you together, it’s your common interests that will keep you together. Commemorate your love with ink that reflects those interests. Whether it’s a sports team, live music or deep-sea fishing, a tattoo that memorializes your favorite things will remind you of all you have in common.
Honor a special place in Austin: Did she propose on the Congress Avenue Bridge? Did he first realize it was true love at the UT Tower? Was your first date at the Paramount Theater? A couple’s tattoo in Austin honoring a place that holds a special place in your heart is an ideal way to honor the person who holds a special place in your heart.
Pay homage to your favorite travels: Even if there is not a place in Austin that holds special significance, tattoos that honor your favorite destinations can be an original way to give a nod to what matters in your relationship. Represent that place with a tattoo of an iconic building or just the latitude and longitude of the location.
Remember a favorite movie: If you are looking for a couple’s tattoo, movies abound with inspiration. Choose a great quote, an inspiring couple or an homage to a movie you both love.
Bring it together: Many couples choose a tattoo that works alone but takes on even more significance when brought together. If you and your significant other are looking for something small, think about a lock and key, puzzle pieces that would interlock, or the yin and yang symbols. More elaborate tattoos are only limited by your imagination.
Ring finger: If you’re going to put a ring on it, why not put a tattoo on it too? Your ring finger is an ideal location for a small subtle tattoo that can be covered by your wedding band.
Special date: Another creative way to honor your love is to get a tattoo of a significant date. It could be your first kiss, your wedding anniversary or the day your first child was born. If you’re looking for something unobtrusive, simple numbers in an intimate location can be a private way to commemorate the date or you can incorporate the date in a more elaborate tattoo.
Significant words: Most couples have words of significant meaning. It could be an endearment, a nickname or a unique way of saying I love you. Honor those words – and the feelings behind them – by getting them inked. Your tattoo artist can help you choose the perfect type style, or for a truly personalized touch, have your significant other write the words and in most cases your artist can replicate the writing.
