1. MATCHING FOOT TATTOOS
Why not have matching foot tattoos to have a connection for life.
You can always show them off in summer. Every time you are together, you must connect your tattoos because they look amazing! Having matching trainers like the photo above is great too! Having a tattoo on your ankle can be easily covered up, in case you don’t want to show it off 24/7.
2. PINKY SWEAR TATTOOS
Getting a swearing on your pinky tattoo is commitment!
Do you remember always swearing on your pinky? As kids, we always use to do this. You know each other’s secrets and everything about each other so why not get matching tattoos. Bring this back to life with matching pinky swear tattoos.
3. ENDLESS LOVE TATTOOS
Family is endless love.
This tattoo is simple and effortless. There is no need for any decorative pictures or logos with this message. Endless love says it all. If you do opt for this quote, ensure you choose an elegant font like the photo above. This will stand out and emphases how delicate the saying is. Having a gorgeous font makes all the difference.
4. BEAUTIFUL FLOWER TATTOOS
Are you looking for something colourful and unique to all of your sisters?
Flower tattoos can look amazing and tick all of your boxes. If you want a sister flower tattoo, ensure you choose a different colour flower to your sister(s). This will keep the bond but also be a little different. Have the text font as your sisters and the same flower but mix it up with different colours.
5. CUTE WRIST TATTOOS
Wrists are quite a common place to get a tattoo.
Choosing a cute wrist tattoo, will show your love and your connection with your sister. It can be a small tattoo or a good size tattoo like the photo above. This is sweet, cute and innocent, showing two girls on swings that are sisters. As you can see on the photo, the two tattoos are the opposite of each other. Of course, when you get together, you have to take a photo like the one above to show off your matching tattoos!
6. DREAM CATCHER TATTOOS
Dream catchers are so intricate and beautiful.
These have a few different meanings but if you and your sister get a matching dream catcher on your back, you’ll be matching for life. Everyone dreams even if we don’t remember that when we wake up. Having a dream catcher tattoo will get rid of your nasty dreams and keep the good ones. It can relate to many other things such as icon of fashion and the American native culture. Dream catchers are made from feathers, beads, the hoop and web. These components alone have their own meanings. A feather represents a breath of air which is vital for life. These are found hanging from the round wooden circle. The beads are there to trap good dreams when you are sleeping. There’s usually a single bead in the centre that represents the spider in the web. The hoop is to frame the dream catcher but also represents the circle of life. Last of all, the web catches your bad dreams.
7. BIG SIS, LIL SIS
Are you the big sister or maybe you are the little sister? Either or, this is an amazing idea.
Get big sis and lil sis tattoos. Remember when you were growing up and your mum or dad would measure you against the wall then mark it with a date? This reminds me so much of that and it brings back childhood memories. Make sure the tattooist draws the line higher for big sis and a lower line for lil sister. This adds to the touch.
8. WATERCOLOR TATTOOS
Choosing to have a watercolour tattoo will infuse colour and life between you.
Add an artistic look with lots of colour and make sure it’s smudge too to bring it to life. Feathers are good for adding colour as everyone generally like these, so you can both share the love. Once you look at having matching watercolour tattoos, you will not look back. Watercolour tattoos don’t have a black outline which makes the colours look like a painting rather than a tattoo. They tend to come alive more than other traditional standard colour tattoos. The process of getting a watercolour tattoo is not different to getting any other tattoo. So if you are thinking of getting an arty design, speak to your sister about having matching watercolour tatts!
9. MATCHING QUOTE TATTOOS
If you have a quote that you both live by and believe, have it as a tattoo.
This way, every time you look at it, you will remember the quote and your sister. Many people have their own quotes that they live by but you have to find a quote that both of you believe it and love because you will have this tattoo for the rest of your life, make it a good one. Tattoo sayings are just as popular as having a design on your skin. Many people are opting for sayings or quotes to show off their character and a period in their life. Whatever age you are, sayings are relate to many people and it may relate to a certain time in their life where they overcome an issue or a problem they occurred and this is a perfect if you and your sister went through it together. It may represent a family member who is no longer with us and you and your sister want to stay close to them. Just remember when you are choosing your quote that it will be with you for a very long time, so make it a memorable thing and not something you and your sister will forget in the next few years.
10. YOU KEEP ME SAFE & YOU KEEP ME WILD
You keep me safe and you keep me wild will relate to many sisters.
Maybe you’re the sister that looks out for your family and your sister is a wild child. Perfect! With sisters, there tends to be a wild one and a quiet sister. Which are you? Do you want this as a bold statement? If so, keep it the same as the photo above. Black font will make it stand out and if you add colour, it won’t be as noticeable. Joining the letters, will soften the look and the underline, will show how much the saying means to you.
11. MATCHING ARM TATTOOS
Having a matching arm tattoo is a way to show your love and connection to that person.
The best idea would be to have the same tattoo but have it linking to the other somehow, like the photo above. If you haven’t got a saying or something that connects to you both, why not have stick girls that are talking to one another! This is a perfect design if you always keep in touch with each other and always chat on the phone. Add a splash of colour by adding sexy red lips to your stick girls, this will bring it to life.
12. WIND ROSE TATTOOS FOR THREE SISTERS
These gorgeous wind rose tattoos will appeal to many sisters.
The compass represents a guide and direction. If you’re always travelling or always wanting sisterly advice, this can relate to you too. Compass tattoos look amazing and you do not need to add any colour to show it off. They are bold and can mean many things. Whether you are finding out your life journey, going travelling, always directed home or feeling lost, you can find a reason that relates to you. This is the ideal solution for many sisters as we are all on a life journey and when we fly the nest, we always come home. If you love to travel, you know that having a compass is a vital gadget to have. The actual design is unusual and distinctive.

13. MATCHING CAPRICON CONSTELLATION TATTOOS FOR TWIN SISTERS
Were you both born under Capricorn? This is a perfect tattoo for you both.
Having a sister or sisters is amazing but if you have a twin, it is uber special! You have been by each other’s side for so many years, maybe even dressing the same! Don’t be ashamed, this is an incredible bond between you and this is the one person that knows you inside and out. Even if your old childhood photos are embarrassing, it is about the special tie you and your sister have. She is the person you can always reply on and confide in. Having a matching twin tattoo will make your connection stronger and bond you for life. If you both were not born under the Capricorn constellation, find out your sign and symbol. If it is something you like, talk to your sister and maybe you both like it. It does not have to be as big as the one in the photo, maybe you want it smaller and on another part of your body. Maybe you both want it hidden from everyone else so it’s special to you both. Whatever you choose to have, talk to your twin and ensure you are both happy with your chosen design.
14. COOL WORLD MAP TATTOOS
If you love to travel with your sister, think about getting a matching map tattoo.
Simple and just the outline looks incredible. It doesn’t have to mean that you’ve travelled together, maybe the opposite. If you and your sister decided to take a gap year and went travelling with your own set of friends, ensure you make the most of this life journey by having a world map tattoo. Have a tattoo of the country you went to visit. Alternatively, maybe this doesn’t apply to you and your sisters, but think again. Everyone always wants to travel to somewhere in particular, whether that be America, Thailand or Australia, why not have this outlined on your arm? You and your family could have moved from your native country over the past few years. This could work with this too so do not think that because you haven’t travelled the world, that this doesn’t apply to you. There is always a link somewhere!
15. THERE’S NO BETTER FRIEND THAN A SISTER
There’s no better friend than a sister. Is this true for you and your sister?
Getting a saying or a quote is special and important to you both. You must ensure you are very happy and if any of you have any doubts, don’t have it. Find another saying that you both love. Of course, many sisters are closer than other sisters so if you are very close to your sister and feel this is a perfect match, then go for it. As you can see from the photo, this is a delicate and gorgeous font that they have chosen and this makes all the difference. It’s all in lowercase letters and have a soft, girly feeling about it.
16. AMAZING FOOT TATTOOS
Thinking of a place to get a tattoo is sometimes hard.
Maybe you want to show it off but not all year round. This is ideal for you. If you’re a fan of sandals or flip-flops, wear with proud and show off your tattoo.
