A tattoo can be an elegant decoration, a symbol or a talisman for many of us. Art painting of the body has long ceased to be considered something indecent and, having become fashionable, has become a kind of trend.
The so-called pair tattoo has also become very popular, that is, when two lovers make a tattoo that unites their feelings. What are the paired drawings, where is the best place to place them and who should not do it? Let's talk about it in this article.
What are paired tattoos?
If you are in love, then you probably want to share everything with your loved one - your life, pastime, happiness and grief, if it, God forbid, happens. Previously, the pinnacle of what could be shared and accepted for lovers was marriage. Today, most young and mature people choose a civil marriage, but at the same time they wear engagement rings, live together or get a pair tattoo, which is also called a "tattoo for lovers." It looks either like an identical drawing on the body of two, or as parts of the plot, connecting which, you can see a complete picture.
What do these tattoos have in common?
1. Place. Usually,for paired tattoos, the same part of the body is chosen for lovers. It can be a palm, wrist, forearm, leg, stomach.
2. Meaning. The tattoo carries the information that you and your loved one are halves of one whole. That is why tattoos imitating a torn pattern are so often practiced - halves of a puzzle, hearts, two animals or men who strive for each other.
3. Stylistics. It is the same for paired tattoos. We are talking about the font (if it is an inscription), color, brightness.
When would a tattoo for two be a mistake?
You are quite happy together and it seems to you that it was not chance that brought you together, but fate itself. Do you think a couple tattoo, the photo of which is tender, is a great way to strengthen relationships?
But here are a few stop signs that a tattoo might be a mistake:
- you've been together recently, not more than six months;
- you like to make quick decisions and often do rash things;
- you often quarrel with your loved one, and even because of the little things (for example, you can’t calmly decide which movie to watch or where to go for a walk);
- this is your first relationship;
- you are not yet twenty years old.
Of course, it's your body and it's up to you to decide how it looks. But believe me, if you break up, it will be difficult to explain the mouse on your hand or the inscription “Valentin forever” on the shoulder to the new cavalier.
Most Popularpaired tattoos for lovers are inscriptions. The easiest option is to fill in the name of the favorite by drawing both in the same font and on the same part of the body.
It will be more interesting to look at some phrase that is important for two, if it is divided into two parts and put on one for each. You can choose your own proverb, saying, phrase from a song or movie. Quite rarely, a paired tattoo is stuffed in Russian. The most common tattoos are in English, Arabic, Hebrew or Latin. Here are examples: Love forever ("love forever"), no lies only love ("no lies - only love"), one love one heart ("one love - one heart"), together - forever ("together forever"), i love him - i love her ("I love him - I love her").
Another very common option for two is rings. For example, you do not want to sign, but you love each other and are sure that your feelings will never fade away. You can get a couple tattoo in the form of wedding rings on the ring fingers. Also, images of bracelets that are the same for two have recently become fashionable.
Pair tattoo on the wrist
Most lovers walk holding hands.
Tattoos on this particular part of the body, parts of everything stuff themselves with steam. These can be drawings that come together when you take the palm of your loved one, or that fold into a single puzzle. The key and lock, male and female crowns, signs of infinity look very interesting. Looks rougher butthe variant of the image of her nut and his bolt is also quite popular.
What are the disadvantages of a paired tattoo
Of course we don't want to think about future changes if everything is great in the present. But things happen in life, and even loving hearts can grow cold with time.
Remember this too! So, for example, the mistakes of the stars are very eloquent, for example, Johnny Depa, who, in honor of his love for Winona Ryder, first filled the tattoo “Vinona forever”, which, after parting with his beloved, turned into a rather ambiguous “Vine forever”. A similar story happened with Angelina Jolie, who got a tattoo on her shoulder with the name of Billy Bob Thornton, and then “turned” him into a dragon using a laser and a cover. From this point of view, a paired tattoo with the name of a loved one today or a ring with the date of your first meeting can turn into a serious problem in the future. How, for example, will the new guy Ivan react to you if “I love Alexander forever” flaunts on your forearm? Or if, for example, a girl has a nut on her wrist - what would it be for? Think about it today so you don't waste money and time on laser tattoo removal later.
