60 Couple Name Tattoo Designs & Ideas That'll Make Your Love Strong

Tattoos. Everyone has them, but not every couple does. Some say it’s superstitious, but once you’re husband and wife, aren’t vows just as permanent? Who knows, perhaps matching tattoos shows an even deeper commitment to each other. You endure pain for me; I endure pain for you. 

Today there’s creativity in more than just a name. Infinity signs, initials, quotes, whatever symbolizes love most is what couples choose. The designs are truly limitless. And if you’re one of the many couples in the market for a matching tattoo, read below for 60 couple name tattoo designs and ideas that’ll make your love strong.

The Couple Classic

Finger tattoos come in all different shapes and sizes. The perks: they’re subtle, sitting quietly on the finger, taking up little space, allowing you to maintain professionalism. If that’s the look, you need. They’re also equally as symbolic as rings, hence tattooing the ring finger. You can’t go wrong, but you can choose from several designs.

1. Rings

No one ever said that had to be plain. The new classic ring tattoos may be too classic for some, but they come in so many variations, you have to love the idea.

2. Initials

Shorter than a name, but just as sweet. This tattoo will give you that constant reminder of your special one, with their initial to remind you. 

3. Infinity

The infinity sign is always a good tattoo choice. It is simple, yet has a significant meaning; infinite.

4. Special Date

Sometimes it’s all about when it happened. First date? Engagement? The day you became husband and wife? The Roman numerals in this design make it even more unique.

5. Ocean Babes

This one symbolizes love and all the good vibes. The sky really is the limit with ring tattoos. Whatever symbolizes your love is whatever it can be. 

The Other Finger... No Not That One

You’re not just husband and wife; you’re the cool husband and wife. So maybe the ring finger tattoo is too cliche for you, but that doesn’t mean other fingers or parts of the hand aren’t. These leave the ring finger for your ring, but still permanently display your affection. We admire the creativity of placement, and they’re still subtle enough if that’s what you’re going for with your unique ink .

6. The Name

Or maybe you do choose that finger - regardless there’s nothing more personal than a name. It declares you absolutely belong to that person.

7. Avocado Lot of Love for You

You both love each other, and you love avocados? What could be more perfect than that? Plus, various hand placements look adorable holding hands. Thumb's up to this tattoo. It’s cute and trendy.

8. Lock & Key

Nothing says love like a lock and key. Most of us keep our hearts locked up until we find that special someone right? 

9. The Birdcage
