anyone have matching/symbolic tattoos with/of their significant other and pics to share?
i’m thinking of getting a tattoo of my wedding date (YES, i know that not all relationships last!) or a symbol/phrase that would be representative of our relationship, but if things went sour, i could at least try to convince myself that it represents something else!

I don’t want to be a buzzkill, but if you are marrying someone, shouldn’t you feel confidident enough in your relationship that it is for the long haul? It sounds like you are viewing the tattoo as more permanent than the marriage!

I have a matching tattoo with my sister! I don’t have a picture of it, but it’s sort of a teardrop shape with two curved shapes inside (one is a little bigger than the other) It’s a symbol for big sister, little sister, and we’re going to add on the word for “sisters” in Gaelic. (we’re Irish)
However, in your case, I’d think LONG and hard about it. You don’t want to get a tattoo for someone and already be coming up with an excuse that it can mean something else if things change. My friend did that and just spent $$$$$$ getting a “B” covered up with an elaborate tattoo.

I have a J on my wrist, which is his first initial and he has my name on the underside of his arm. We had them done in typewriter font, since that is our favorite. I’ll try to post pics but they’re always too big for this site.
Also, don’t feel bad for considering the future of the tattoo – it’s only natural, as it is a giant commitment and only logical (and smart) to do so.

I have a matching shamrock with my cousin that says our last name over it. We got it when we were 19 and I have yet to regret it!
I think my FI and I are going to get tatoos – I want to get a tiny Puerto Rican flag in a spot he’ll only see and he might get a tiny shamrock in a spot I’ll only see. 🙂
I view my marriage as more permanent then the tatoo and I have absolutely 0 reservations about it.

i dont’ think i’d do a wedding date. wedding dates are real exciting right now, but as time goes on, don’t you think there will be more important things you’d like to maybe ink yourselves with? Maybe something representing your children together? I think i’d rather have something like that than my wedding date.

just to clarify: i wouldn’t have said yes to my FI if i didn’t think this was for the long haul! i’m not at all coming up with an excuse for a tattoo, but as they are permanent, i just think the symbol chosen for the tattoo is something one should consider. for example, a name vs a heart.
i should have worded my post better!

I’m thinking about getting the date we started dating tattooed on my ring finger-under where my rings will go-it depends on what the rings will look like on if i’ll definitely get them, but I think that’s a good idea. If I’m not too chicken when it comes time to do it!

i’ve always thought about doing the first letter of his name (which is also my first letter) on my ring finger. I love the idea, but my guy is not a fan of tattoos, so it probably won’t happen. I love the idea of it though!

My fiance and I are gonna get new tattoos together just as soon as we have some extra dinero. Can’t wait! Its not technicall an amigram but it kinda is. It says Love and when flipped over (or so to speak cuz I’m not planning on flipping for others to read it) it says hope. I LOVE it, its so meaningful and it universal and its not just my fiance’s name! Let me see if I can find it online…….. crap, can’t find it. I have it as a stencil, I had to purchase it from a tattoo website lol.
