Inside: Cutest small couple tattoo ideas you and your partner will love.
My partner is my favorite person in the entire world. He is the person that I want to spend both my good and bad days with. The person that I want to be next to as I fall asleep. The person that I want to create new experiences with.
Being a part of a ‘couple’ is such a unique experience for each couple. The one unifying theme that we all have in common is the love and loyalty that acts as the basis for our relationships. One of my favorite way to express that love is through getting matching tattoos!
Don’t worry, I am not talking about the kind of tattoo that makes you want to cringe. You know the one. There will be no cursive names in the center of hearts in this article! Instead, I have found some of the most unique small couple tattoo ideas for you to look through with your partner.

The Price of Matching Tattoos
One thing that I love about getting small matching tattoos is that they are affordable! Most of the time, they are under $150, and that’s including your tip. If you go with a simpler tattoo, that price will be even lower.
Will It Hurt?
Yes, I am sorry to say. But the good news is that you will have your partner there with you as moral support the entire time!
If you are really worried about it, make sure you pack up some numbing cream and bring it to your appointment. You simply apply it to the spot you are getting tatted, and it will be numb.
Small Couple Tattoo Ideas
When picking out your matching tattoos, brainstorm with your partner about something that is meaningful to your relationship. It doesn’t have to be serious, but keep whatever you have in mind as you look through these ideas.
1. 2 Smiley Faces – I love this idea because it’s just so simple. You both can get smiley faces of your choosing. This way, you get to put some of your own personality into it, while also matching with the person you love.
2. Pinkie Promise Tattoo – Most relationships are built upon a promise. I think that these pink promise tattoos are just too cute not to include.
3. King and Queen Tattoos – This is a classic tattoo that I wanted to include because some of you may be looking for one that is just like it.
4. Arm Band Idea – This one is subtle and understated, but I think it is an awesome option for couples who don’t like to put themselves out there too much.
5. Nautical-Themed Boats – If your relationship has anything to do with the sea, then I think this might be the tattoo for you. Take a look!
6. Finger Tattoo Idea – I love finger tattoos. They are just so cute, how can I not? One thing to keep in mind though is that they are pretty painful.
7. Sun and Moon Tattoos – This theme has such a beautiful symbolic meaning behind it. You may be the sun to their moon! I know me and my partner heavily associate with this.
8. Favorite Character Ideas – Awe! You can pick your favorite characters to get tattooed together. I think this is a great idea for those of you couples out there who love to watch TV together.
9. Walle and Eva – These are some of my favorite characters, so I had to include them. I’m selfish, what can I say? Jokes aside, if you are a Disney fan, perhaps you may want to consider getting your favorite Disney characters instead.
10. Her Guardian, His Angel – Another classic. I think this one is super cute.
11. Black Rose Tattoos – Instead of getting a detailed rose, you can get a silhouette of one instead!

26. Sun and Moon Idea – The sun and moon are always going to be lovely matching tattoo ideas because they are simple, elegant, and understated.
27. Elk Matching Tattoos – If you live in a rural area then chances are you have gotten close with an elk once or twice. These majestic creatures make for great tattoos.
I am so fed up with the cringy couple tattoos. I don’t mean to be judgy, I just can’t help it when it comes to tattoos. Sure, some of these on this list might qualify as basic, but they are unique enough in their art style to be taken out of that category completely.
Those of you out there who are on the fence about getting a couple tattoo because you are worried about breaking up in the future…don’t worry. I know that we never fully know what the future holds, but chances are this person means a lot to you.
I mean, you want to get a tattoo with them…they must mean a lot. And even if you do go your separate ways in the future(not that that is going to happen) you will have your tattoo as a reminder that you can love and be loved.
