One of you get a slice of bread with a jar of peanut butter and the other a slice of bread with a jar of jelly. It may not convey the weight of souls joined forever but who doesn't love a good PB&J?

Lol, PB&J is forever a mix, but i dun know bout it beign a tattoo ;)

I once saw a very sweet, simple tattoo of two worms/snakes/something of that sort wound around eachother once and then their heads together. One was pink and one was blue. My mom was with me, and asked what the tattoo stood for, and the woman said it was for her and her huspand, and he had one just the same. I thought, what a cute idea! so, perhaps something like that would be nice?

i like the peanut butter and jelly idea.how about the male gets a heart with a key hole in the center and the wife gets a key in otherwords the key to your heart or the key keeper to the portal of your souls dosent have to be a heart either but im thinking if you could incorporate the key and lock or keyhole thing it would be great to symbolize the unity

a tattoo that means something special to you. I recently saw the one on inked where a couple just married got a bird that symbolizes there heritage and at the same time represnted thier love on had a big crown for the male and a smaller one for the female..and they had it down on thier wrist i thought that was pretty sweet. Ot even a saying that symbolizes something to you I know pink and corey each got true love tattooed on thier wrists. Not to name pop or show pop just saying you want it to mean something to both of you.

Don't get a heart-a-gram, you'll just end up getting it covered up in 5 years just like every pre-22 year old that got one thinking they had a great idea, only to find out that millions of people had the same "original" idea.

Get something meaningful -that the both of you have in common or enjoy and cherish! Symbol of the town or place you met, star combination of the day you got married etc.
We got an anniversary tattoo for our 5th, the same Snow flake for the both for us, since we share one soul and Snow flakes are as unique as they come. We are the exception to the rule!

Do you already have tattoos? My wife and I are considering swapping tattoos, in a way. My first tatt was the stub of a cigar, and hers was a small star on the ankle. I'm going to be working the star design into one of my next tattoos, and she's trying to find a way to work in the cigar so that it's still feminine and pretty. It's something that's not obvious to anyone else, but we think it'll be neat to have a little piece of inspiration from each other.

My bf and I just got symbols that mean something to each of us on the back of our arms.. They are different symbols but they are in the same place and done the same way.. Regardlessof what you get or what people say, anything you get will be original and will mean something to you. Get it for what it symbolizes to you and not what people think.

my hubby and i were looking to get tats and i found the perfect tatoo. while doing research, i found the most interesting info that in turn led to our perfect soulmate tatoos. i read that lobsters are strictly monogamous creatures. when they find a mate they will stay with that mate until deathe. We decided that we are each others lobster. so we each got a little lobster tatooed on the inside of our ankle.

We like the theme of us coming together over such a distance, from two different countries and on opposite sides of the continent. It's hard to think of a tattoo that depicts that theme though... Any ideas?

Getting completely unrelated tattoos and saying "oh, but they're our husband-and-wife tatttoos with a VERY deep meaning that only we know, bla bla bla!!" seems dishonest to me.

Either you're confident enough to get tattoos that you'd actually regret if you divorced, or you want to say "aw, look how committed we are!" without actually being confident in that committment.

I'm just a grumpy old fart, apparently.

Hahaha. I used to look at marriage the same way. My philosophy was that marriage was a way to show that you are committed to each other due to the fact that you are not confident enough in that commitment. Marriage was pointless to me. And that's what I told my ex-girlfriends who I had been with for a few years each.

The Husband and I got matching tattoos of two wolves, done tribal style. The wolves had within them 13 hearts for the 13 years we've been married. The male wolf was done in black with red tips and the female wolf was done in red with black tips. The female is resting her head on the male's chest, and his head leans on top of hers. The Husband has been into wolves since he was a child, and when I showed him the picture of what it would look like, he wanted to get it inked that same day.

Sorry, but if there's anything stupider than husband and wife tattoos, its girlfriend/boyfriend tattoos.

If you're not really ready for a lifelong committment, you're not ready for a permanent tattoo of your togetherness.

Which means at least half of people who get married really shouldn't bother with tattoos either.

Sure, I have a wedding band tattoo. I may be an elitist about it, but we have some idea of why we won't end up in the 50%+ of those who divorce...

again, I may seem cranky and old -- but you really don't want to make such a stupid decision as getting a GF/BF tattoo.

My husband and I are thinking about getting matching tats. I was married before and had my ex-husbands name inside a heart on my ankle and my husband had his ex-girlfriends name on his inner arm. We both made the agreement that we would not get married unless both names were covered up. I have a beautiful artist original butterfly over the heart tattoo and he just got his tat in color and colored the name in. We are very happy with that, but we want something for us and we dont want to put each others name on us as we both did that before and it cost more money to get it taken care of when the relationship ended. I was thinking about the heart with the keyhole in the middle with our wedding date under it and my husband to get the key with our wedding date under it. I tried talking him into the PB&J tat but he thought I was crazy LOL Can anyone give me an idea on what to do?

For the person who wanted to get matching white snowflakes on white skin, I agree with your tattoo artist the white wont be very noticeable and will fade need touch ups ect. You'll possibly regret it for all the time and effort. A possible revision of your idea is to do the snowflakes in negative space surrounded in maybe a light dusty blue. I did see in in a tattoo magazine years ago and it looked awesome.

you can't go wrong with it! even if you divorce, its not their name... you'll have smuckers on your boobs. and that's a DAMN good story. :D

My husband and I are getting a tattoo to represent our marriage (5 years next october). We have decided on linking rings with a short quote in the upper parts of the rings bands, and then our marriage date in roman numberals in the bottom part of the rings bands. The rings linked also form the symbol for infinity.

lol i cant believe this thread is still going! so... PB&J is a great idea, very original! My gf and i are wanting matching tattoos and are still deciding.. she wants matching roses on our wrists but i kinda dnt want a rose, seems like what every other couple gets.. i reckon u should get what is close to both of you not some generic idea that every one else gets. But then again that's just me :)

i recently found a website with a generator that puts two words together you read one word up right and then when you flip it or look at it upside down it says another word..and im gonna get a nick name that he calls me and if you read it upside down it says his name and he's gonna get a nickname i have for him and if you read it upside down it will say my name... there for if anything ever happens and the relationship ends im the only one that will know his name is on me and the names wont be so obvious and the tattoos will still mean somethin to us.

so my fiance and I want to get matching tattoos, but instead of our names on each other (ick) we were thinking about getting a quote but one person have part of the quote and the other person have the other half so when someone reads it mine would say Amor es vita essentia and his would say Ordo Ab Chao, So together it would mean Our love is essential to our life which brings order from all the chaos, or something kind of along those lines. =]

One of the sweetest ideas I have heard is getting each others names underneath your wedding rings.
Its what I am going to have done myself when I marry my fiancee.

Good luck with whatever you choose!

my plan is for the lock and key idea. i wanted to incorporate birds because they carry meaning for me and my soon to be.

i found this neat picture online. perhaps the bird with the key on him and instead of the bird being the lock having the bird as shacked somehow.

My ex husband and I got each other initials tattooed on our ring fingers when we got married. He got CAL for my initials and I got AJM for his initials. We were together for 3 years and had a daughter together. Then I found out he had been cheating on me with multiple other girls for the past 3 years. So we split and I paid $200 to get a tiny $5 tattoo laser removed and it hurt way worse than getting the tattoo. And I have to go back for 3 more treatments til it's fully gone. Right now it's just a blurry mess. I regret it so much. After I went for my first laser removal treatment, he was so mad... and broke... he just paid our tattoo artist $5 to cover it up with a plain black band... and a few days later the CAL bled through the black band, and now it's MORE noticeable. It just looks like he highlighted my initials. HAHA. I would not recommend couples tattoos or matching tattoos or especially names to ANYONE. It's a dumb idea. You'll regret it. You can get married, have kids, believe your soul mates, whatever... but you can't be 100% sure you'll stay together forever and be happy. If you're hard headed, just please choose wisely!

My boyfriend and I got tattoos of part of the lyrics to a song that resembled us. It is is a song called carolina by parmalee. I got "feels like carolina" and he got "looks like california". Because the song is about a couple who basically meets in california and then he moves back to North Carolina. And this song really resembled us because we met in california while he was staioned out here and then he moved back to NC...and he dedicated the song to me...listen to the lyrics...they are great...this was the perfect idea for us.

When my husband and I married (10 years ago) we both had the Kanji symbol for loyalty inked on our inner wrists. That way if things ever went sour, you have no regrets because its just the symbol for loyalty, and not someone's name.

Peas and carrots for the win! Thats awesome. There's also salt and pepper, also good old PB&J.

Personally I hate couples tattoos that have crap like "loyalty" "forever" "bladdityblah"

How bout showing that by remaining faithful and staying together? I think matching tatters can be cute, but without some kind of originality, they're just lame. Think it out make it unique, find a badass custom artist and viola!

Then just try to stay together :P

Just FYI..My husband and I just went to that tatoo parlor today to get each others names tatooed under our rings and they said that they would not do that because tatoos on your hands fade easily since your hand is always moving and has a lot of sweat glands..Thought that was interesting

My fiance's parents have matching tattoos of a spider. Her's is above her right breast and his on his right upper arm. My soon to be says that it's something meaningful to them. We've decided that we want to do something similar but we haven't decided on anything specific yet. I would definitely advise against getting names or initials!! Even though I know in my heart I will be with my fiance forever, I would never get his name tattooed on me.

YOu should get a tattoo for yourself on your hand and one for your wife and this tattoo is not complete unless your two hands are together. So when you hold hands the tattoo is complete. I'm thinking you could use a word like soulmates or something idk or a heart

For the person that said the tats on the fingers won't last, I had someone tell me that also... 13 years ago and the tat is still there on my ring finger...

Also, I have ( kanji ) fate/destiny matching with an EX 12 years ago
AND another one, a nickname "Kiss" ( his name was Chris ) on my upper arm 7 years ago

Take note of the EX parts...

I can play those off as just randomness.

I would never get a name though...

I to am looking for a matching tattoo. I like the lock and key idea cause even though I think we will be together forever, it can still be played off if we every break up. If I have a key I can always say im looking for that special lock to open, if I have the lock im jus looking for the right man who has the key. That way theres no worries about getting cover ups or anything like that, and im the only one who knows he has the other half.

I do agree that getting anyones name besides a child or a love one who has pasted away is the dumbest thing in the world.

If anyone has any other ideas please email me and let me know.

my fiance and i are getting married on 10-10-10 so we are planning to get a big X on our ribs for the roman numeral 10. but we will each only have half of the X so it will look more like a sideways V but when we are chest to chest or heart to heart it will make the full X :) hoping to utilize our tattoos in part of our engagement photos

i always thought a great couple tattoo would be if one got a Bird and the other got a Bee :) but it's a little girly for most guys however i think it beats the PB&J one

Cheers!!!

me and my husband just got a couples tattoo. We had it done on our left forearms. We are always telling each other "your my everything" so that's what we got. I got half and he got half but it does not read properly unless our arms are put together and that symbolizes that we are not complete without each other. So my tattoo says everything you're my and his the same. When placed together you get you're my everything you're my everything in one circle. It's perfect for us. We love it but nobody else gets it but it wasn't done for them we did it for us.

I love some of these ideas! My fiancée and I are getting married at the Texas Renaissance Festival in November 2010. He has a tattoo artist friend, Peter Ringlaben, that lives in another state coming to Texas soon so we have to choose our couples tats. I was thinking 'you are all I need' in a script font on our wrists (we love the Radiohead song), but I can't decide. My FH wants his on his back and I want something on my wrist.

Any more ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I liked these ideas:

1. Peas and Carrots (We LOVE Forrest Gump and quote it probably daily)

2. Star combination of our wedding date (If I can find this info)

3. SMALL heart key on me and keyhole on him with our wedding date under it

4. Celtic Knots of our choice

5. I get 'baby' and he gets 'honey' since that's what we call each other.

6. Matching baby honey bees pictures

7. Someone posted this and I like it. I NEED the website though.....i recently found a website with a generator that puts two words together you read one word up right and then when you flip it or look at it upside down it says another word..and im gonna get a nick name that he calls me and if you read it upside down it says his name and he's gonna get a nickname i have for him and if you read it upside down it will say my name.
