2. Matching Heart (<3) Tattoos
Do you want a matching tattoo but with a twist? Have a look at these matching heart tattoos. Not your standard conventional heart tattoos. It is always good to think outside the box. Knowing that you want a heart is a good start but if you don’t want the outline or a filled in standard heart shape, think about this. When you see one-half of these connecting tattoos, it doesn’t look like a heart at all, until they are together. You can have this matching ink in any colour, any size but we would say, choose to have it in the same area as the photo because when you do get together, you can be complete. Other parts of your body may be a little tricky to link up.
