They say that nothing lasts forever and yet, that love heals everything. So while one can find fault with whether love really is permanent, that of matching tattoos definitely cannot be questioned. Saying how deep your love is with bouquets and chocolates are passe these days. If you want to mark your relationship with a gift that really does last forever like your love story (hopefully!), get inked together. As the symbolism of tattoos, its permanency as well as its repercussions are better understood today, it's a process that needs to be extremely well-thought out by the involved parties but one which is exceptionally special like no other gift can be.

One of the tried and tested styles of getting inked and showing how much you love someone is getting their names inked. You can also get special dates tattooed like birthdays and anniversaries as they are special memories to cherish.
Many people prefer to find that one common element that connects them such as music notes, objects, hobbies or anything else symbolic of their love.
Some base theirs on themes like lock and key, one gets the lock and the other gets a key, depicting the key to their lock lies with the other. The complete understanding of the tattoo is seen when both join together.
For private people with subtle taste, the minimalistic, small tattoos are the best options to define the large amount of love you have.
A new style is getting the fingerprint of your partner printed on yourself. It's practically a signature of love inked on you; the ultimate seal of love.
You can have the messages or sound of your special one and hear it anytime you want. This is more like a coded message which no one else can know, but whenever you feel like hearing their voice you can just scan the tattoo and play it back.
To prove that love isn't meant to be defined or labelled by gender or sexuality, more and more people are wearing theirs with LGBT or pride tattoos.
