Getting a couple’s tattoo is a HUGE decision and one that many have learned to regret.
For those head over heels in love, a twin flame tattoo might seem like a no-brainer.
What better way to show your significant other that you’re both off the market? Right?
Whether you’re for it or against it or are unsure, getting Twin Flame tattoos is a matter of personal opinion, so if you’ve on the fence, read through this article to help you decide whether or not to hit the inkpot.
But, is it a good idea for twin flames to get matching ink?
You will never feel the type of bond you show with your twin flame with any other person.
You are spiritually intertwined and are destined by the divine to be together. So, what better way to show the world that you’ve met your perfect match?
Getting a tattoo can be a profoundly personal decision, and many who go through with it put loads of thought and effort into the meaning and symbolism of matching waterproof body art.
It needs to be something you have agreed on, and there shouldn’t be any reluctance from either party. Tattoos are permanent. Anything that will be on your body until you take your last breaths requires some mulling over.
If you and your significant other decide to spontaneously stop and get matching tattoos after a night of drinking, well, then that’s not the best way to go about it. You’re likely to regret it and will end up with deep regrets and most likely an infection.
If you’re waiting in the wings for your twin flame to appear in your life, perhaps getting a twin flame tattoo is an excellent idea to help you attract your twin flame.
Top tattoos ideas for twin flames
Tattoos are like fashion. One moment they’re the hottest thing on earth, and the next they’re “so last season (remember Pamela Anderson’s barb wire tattoo?)
That tattoo you select should be something you hold near and dear to your heart and something that encompasses both of your twin flame energies. It should be unique and something that you are prepared to wear with pride for the rest of your earthly life.
Crawl before you walk
Starting with something small is also a wise decision. Yes, I know how tempting it can be, for all in the throes of the honeymoon phase of your relationship, to want to plaster this person’s name all over your body. It’s a lovely gesture but, take it down a notch.
Ask yourself how you would feel if this person had to break things up. Would you really want “I love Kevin” etched in your chest for all eternity? I didn’t think so…
Here are some great examples of small and meaningful tattoo ideas for you and your twin flame.
The image of the triality symbol is a representation of the spiritual journey that twin flames embark on. It is a perfect representation of the union of twin flames and is all about two becoming one.
What better way to express eternal love than the Infinity symbol? Eternity is a great way to describe a twin flame, and the Infinity symbol with its simple yet elegant design is a wildly popular choice for twin flames.
Yin Yang symbol
You are the Yin to my Yang. I spoke about trends earlier on, and if you were raised in the 90’s you’ll be more than familiar with this iconic Chinese symbol. Back then, it was all the rage; you could get a yin yang sign on literally anything.
NEW QUIZ: What’s your spiritual archetype? At the heart of everything you do, think, and feel is your spiritual archetype. Take this quiz to find out yours.
If you’re considering a Yin Yang tattoo, it’s a good option. The icon symbolizes the energies of both man and woman that must work together to evolve.
It’s all about balance and equality with this symbol, and it makes a great option. Side note – The yin yang tattoo is the most popular design amongst estranged twin flames. So you might want to let that marinate before you book your session.
The Celtic Knot of Eternal Love
What’s not to love about the Celtic Love knot (pun not intended)? Twin flames embody the harmony between the earthly and spiritual realms, reminding us that everything is connected.
With no beginning and no end, it’s the perfect tattoo to signify everlasting love and devotion.
Vesica of Pisces
Two become one, yes, the name of a once-popular Spice Girls song and the prominent symbolism behind another fantastic twin flame tattoo contender.
This sign is synonymous with unbreakable bonds. It is also said to represent the unconditional love that soulmates feel for each other. So if you’re looking for something that bonds your twin flame with you, then the Vesica would be a great idea.
Sun and Moon
If you’re not into symbols, why not go for something practical, like the moon and sun. This image conjures up images of Drogo and Daenerys from Game of Thrones, I know, but it’s also a fantastic idea if you’re in the market for a twin flame tattoo.
You have the Sun, or male energy protecting the moon, female energy. Together, the sun and moon are always in sync. Without them, we’d all fall off the plant – just saying.
Jokes aside, the sun and moon twin flame is a beautiful gesture and an excellent choice for a matching tattoo.
The pros and cons of twin flame tattoos
Whether it’s a good or bad idea is a matter of debate. On the one hand, it’s a beautiful gesture and is a great way to show your twin flame that you’re crazy about them.
On the other end of the spectrum, remember that you’ll need to live with it, FOREVER. (Unless you have bottomless pockets to pay for professional tattoo removal.)
While some believe that you should never get a matching tattoo, regardless of being in a committed, long-term relationship, others throw caution to the wind and get their ink on.
Let’s take a look at some pros.
Pros of twin flame tattoos
Your mind has been made up, and you’re on your way to the tattoo parlor. Here are some significant advantages to getting a twin flame tattoo:
- Shows your devotion to your twin flame
- It can help you attract your twin flame if single
- It’s trendy (all the cool kids are doing it!)
- Cheaper than buying expensive jewelry
- It’s permanent and can’t be erased
- It screams forever love
Cons of twin flame tattoos
I can’t stress this point enough, getting a tattoo is a permanent process that is expensive to remove.
In addition to the expense, you also have to deal with the embarrassment of wearing one if things don’t go according to plan. Here are some of the cons that go along with getting matching twin flame tattoo:
- It’s painful – having a tiny needle bore holes into your flesh is not the most fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
- It’s permanent – When things don’t go accordingly, do you want to be reminded of it?
- It’s expensive to remove – Professional tattoo removal can cost thousands, and your chance of scarring is enormous.
- It is frowned upon in some cultures. – Take note digital nomads; some cultures aren’t keen on seeing your ink, and you will need to cover up.
Does it show eternal love, or is it a foolish move? Many questions may exist, and there may be many different reasons. It’s a decision that should not be taken lightly.
Celebrities with twin flame tattoos
But Beyonce and Jay-Z have matching tattoos; I want one too!
NEW QUIZ: At the heart of everything you do, think, and feel is your spiritual archetype. Find out your spiritual archetype in our fun new quiz. Take it here.
Erm, not the greatest reason to head out and get a twin flame tattoo. But, yes, seeing celebrities with matching tattoos makes us want to do it more. Remember, though, as they say in Hollywood, all that glitters is not always gold.
Take a look at a few examples of celebs who got inked. For some, their love is standing the test of time; for others, I’m sure they’re filled with deep regret (sorry Katy Perry).
Posh and Becks
This powerhouse couple has stood the test of time. Football legend David Beckham and his wife Victoria have matching tattoos that say “I am my beloved’s, my beloved is mine” in Hebrew.
Katy Perry and Russel Brand
Katy Perry flaunted an underarm tattoo that she got done with her ex-husband Russell Brand in 2010. They had a disastrous relationship that was short-lived. After they separated, Brand removed the Sanskrit tattoo that said, “Anuugacchati Pravaha”.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Music industry royalty Beyoncé and Jay-Z each have similar tattoos on their inner index fingers. The tattoo symbolizes their wedding date, April 4, 2008, depicting the roman numeral “4”. So classy and so chic!
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott
Is it possible to mention any type of list that doesn’t include a Kardashian/ Jenner? Twin flame tattoos are no different.
When Kylie was going through the whole secret pregnancy stunt, their tattoo artist dropped an image of the pairs matching butterfly tattoos.
The idea immediately caught the attention of Instagram sleuths, where it was later confirmed that the couple was expecting their first child together.
If you’re happy with the idea that your twin flame tattoo will remind you about a former flame or friendship one day, go for it.
If you rush into it, you might have regrets; however, for those in it for the long haul and want to flaunt their kindred spirit, why not.
There is always a possibility that the experience of getting the tattoo together will bring you and your partner even closer together.
In the event of a breakup, the tattoo can still serve as a reminder of the happier times shared with that person.
