Tattoos are permanent. That's why you have to make sure you're 100% behind the decision for what art you want to put on your body…

17. A Chinese urban legend tattoo
So, this is a Chinese/Japanese legend called the 'red string of fate' that states that the gods tie an invisible red string around the pinky finger (Japanese) or any part of the body (Chinese) and those two people are destined to be together. According to wikipedia: "The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break."
18. Simplistic pizza
Getting a pizza tattoo is always a good idea! Especially if you and your BFF/partner love pizza!
These are some "same but different" tattoos that are super cool. Get the stormtrooper you identify most with! Or don't! Be different and get a rebel tattoo! Star Wars for life!
20. His & Hers sugar skulls
Alternate tattoo options are: hers & hers skulls, his & his skulls or just cool-ass skulls that match your personalities.
21. Sun & Moon!
Works best if you're Game of Thrones fans, then you can quote Khal Drago and Khaleesi. Also works well if you're friends and complete opposites… like night and day. Ba-dum-cha.
22. Quotes about how much you love each other!
"Til my dying day" is a pretty different way of saying I love you forever. Way better to tattoo that on your body than just boring old "I love you" or your partners name.
These mini umbrellas are adorable! Not to mention if your names start with J's it's a double whammy!
