Unique Couple Tattoo Design Ideas With Meaning

Nov 18, 2022

The feeling of being in love with someone has so many phases. Remember when your love was in a blooming stage and all you used to think about was how to spend time with him/her? Or things you two can do together? You start doing things for them and with them, that might seem cheesy and over the board but for both of you it’s kinda romantic and you want to hold on to it. This phase has a beauty of its own and as you grow, things change but what does not change is the love you two have for each other. And one of the things that do not change between you two is the commitment factor. Getting tattoos together is a way to not only show love to your partner but in a way, it is a lifelong commitment that shows that you are 100% in with them.

Things to Consider Before Getting Inked

There are so many aspects to consider before going to get inked as it's a lifelong decision that you need to carry with you. 

1. First, be sure to be on the same page as your partner. If one person is sure and the other is going just for the sake of their partner sometime ends up in regrets. And remember tattoo ink breaches the skin, so if your skin has issues or allergies then avoid it. Sit and discuss with your partner the importance and understanding of where he/she is on this topic and then move ahead from there.

2. Once decided, now brainstorm ideas. Check out designs and their meanings. Apps like Pinterest and Instagram with photos help make your decision easier. 

3. If possible, go for something that holds or represents you both and your bond. It will be a beautiful feeling and with such a lifelong commitment, it will make more sense to get it done. 

4. Decide which body part you both want as it can happen that your partner will love to have a tattoo on you that only they can see. 

5. And the final step, search for a good tattoo artist. Do not and we repeat, do not go to any artist without having a look at their work, and reviews from the customers. 

Precautions To Take After Getting Inked

Once you get inked, your tattoo artist will definitely make you aware of the precautions you have to take care of, but other than the basic ones, here are a few things you must keep in mind:

1. Keep your tattooed skin area clean with plain soap and water and dab the area gently. Do not run water directly in the area.

2. Keep moisturizing the area several times a day.

3. Avoid getting sun exposure to the tattoo area for at least two weeks.

4. Avoid water bodies like swimming pools, hot tubs, rivers, lakes, etcetera.

5. Wear something soft and make sure the cloth shall not stick to the tattoo.

6. Even after a few weeks, if you feel like the skin area is getting affected in a way you did not want or were unaware of, go and consult to a doctor immediately.
