Sisters who get matching tattoos usually opt for matching symbols, quotes or patterns, according to Cuded, a design site. Some matching tattoos are split in half so that each sister has one half of the tattoo, and it is made whole only when the two come together.
Some cute matching tattoos that allude to the bond between sisters are wishbones, infinity symbols, doves, anchors, keys, peace signs, compasses, clovers, Lego pieces, puzzle pieces, stars, peas in a pod, hearts, crosses, card suits and feathers. Cultural symbols are good matching tattoos for sisters who feel strongly about their cultural heritage. For example, Celtic crosses, suns and shield knots are some of the more conventional symbols for those of Irish or Scottish descent, and there are also Celtic symbols for sisters and for family.
Matching sister tattoos can also consist of the sisters' shared last name or word like "forever" and "love." Matching quotes are also popular tattoos among sisters, such as "to infinity and beyond" and "A perfect sister I am not, but thankful for the one I've got." Cartoon characters that are sometimes popular among sisters include Hello Kitty and the Powerpuff Girls. Sisters may also opt to get matching animal tattoos. Other youthful matching tattoo ideas are girl stick figures holding hands, yo-yos, dreamcatchers and musical notes.
