Having things in common with your other half always helps to maintain a healthy relationship.
You can share interests in films, books, food and sports but what about tattoos? Surely a mutual love of tattoos can be a successful part of a relationship... Well here are some reasons why it is...
1) You Can Share In The Experience of Being Inked
An important part of any tattoo is the actual going and getting tattooed, so what could be better than going with the one you love? Being in a tattooed couple means you always have someone on hand who loves tattoos as much as you and will jump at the opportunity to head down to the local tattoo shop and hit up some ink!
2) Both of You Appreciate a Good Tattoo
Being in a couple where you both have tattoos means one simple thing, you both love tattoos! Big ones, little ones, lettering, Japanese, tribal, you name it, you love it. Tattoos are tattoos so whether you have one or a dozen you can both appreciate the work and creativity that went into a particular piece of ink and share in a common interest.
3) You Both Understand The Stigma Attached With Getting Ink
Perhaps stating the obvious but in a relationship where you both have tattoos you both understand the social pressures that can be applied to having ink. You understand the pains of getting employment, are used to the occasional second glance and know that even though you have tattoos it doesn't mean your in a gang. Conceivably even more pressing is that you both understand that because you choose to express yourself in body art people may automatically conclude you will be a bad parent... then again you can know you have kickass ink and are a kickass mum or dad so who cares what others think...
4) You Stand Out and Look Awesome!!
Arguably the best part of being part of a tattooed couple is that you stand out and look good doing it. We have all seen these inked up, in love and badass couples that wear there tattoos with pride and all secretly wanted to be them. I mean what's cooler than you and your other half walking down the street, head held high and ink on display knowing everyone looking your way wants to be you...because of obviously they do! As tattoos rock and so do tattooed couples
5) Matching Tattoos??
Okay, maybe this one is reserved for the more serious couple or the ones who have been together since time began, but it still applies. When your in a relationship with a fellow tattoo lover and have both committed your lives to each other, then why not take the next step and ink it up. Yeah it may not work out but there's always cover ups and lasers...still we've only got one life and if you love someone as much as tattoos then why not combine the two!
