It's that time of year again, time to talk once again about couples tattoos. Couples tattoos or matching tattoos with a significant other are tricky subjects. First and foremost, they're a notorious tattoo faux pas that often leads to regret, removal or a cover up. And here's why: many people don't think ahead when it comes to a matching tattoo with a significant other. Because why relationships don't last forever, a tattoo does.

However, we believe that there is a right way to get a matching tattoo with a boyfriend or girlfriend. And that right way is to get a beautiful, tasteful design that can exist independently from it's twin. So instead of getting a name or a key that fits into a lock, try going for similar designs that aren't obvious indicators of a couples tattoo. Not sure where to go with that advice? Then take a look at 15 creative couples tattoos that you'll actually want to get in the gallery below.
