These Matching and Coordinating Hermana Tattoos Are The Perfect Picks For Your Nest Ink Piece
Hermanas. You love them, and sometimes you just as easily “can’t” with them.
They say that the best kind of relationships have passion in them. And, is there anything more passionate than sisters fighting over who wore what clothes? At the end of the day, there’s no denying that you’ve got an unbreakable bond – whether it be from covering for the other when parents stick their noses where they don’t belong, to inventing elaborate dance routines to your favorite Selina song. And so, to celebrate that feeling of sisterhood, we’ve put together a gallery of tattoos that these sisters have gotten inked to show off their strong, unique connection.
1. The pinky swear
We all know that you can’t break a promise if you pinky swear on it. That’s probably why a pinky swear tattoo works so well! It’s a great, if small, reminder of your inextricable bond with your sister. It doesn’t matter if she’s a sister by blood, or a sister by choice, you know you’re bound for life – just like how you’re bound by your pinky swears!
2. Dinosaurs with a tin can telephone
Maybe it’s time you recognized the fact that you and your sister aren’t really spring chickens anymore. In fact, perhaps you’re more like … dinosaurs? But, you both still know how to get in touch with your inner child, and also keep in touch with each other. Clearly, these sisters knew this about themselves and brought it to life through their ink.
3. Unique flowers
You know what makes getting a tattoo less nerve-wracking? Getting it done with someone else! And what better way to celebrate sisterhood than to go through the pain together – and end up with something as beautiful and delicate as a flower?
4. Tiny love hearts
Okay, we’ll admit, getting little love hearts to symbolize your connection to your sister is a tad cliche. But. Getting these sisters have put a nice twist on the theme, by leaving only one heart filled in with color to show what rank they are in the pecking order.
5. Simple text and dates
If there’s anyone who cares about your date of birth, it’s your sister. After all, it determined how you grew up! Who got the hand-me-down clothes, who got to drive first, and who got in trouble the most. This tattoo respects not only your sisterhood but also the importance of your birthday.
6. A compass
Who’s got your back when the chips are down? Your sister, of course! That’s what this tattoo is all about. No matter if you’re feeling lost and alone, you know that you can always find your way back to your sister, and she’ll be there for you when you need it the most.
7. The Capricorn constellation
This is a tattoo that’s specifically for twins. Or, sisters somehow lucky enough to be born under the same star sign. These two have gotten the Capricorn constellation inked on their arms, but you can always switch it up to match your own zodiac.
8. No matter where/No matter what
When you get married, you’re actively making the choice to unconditionally stick by someone. But when you’re sisters, well, that unconditional love just comes naturally to you. The “no matter where” and “no matter what” statement tattoos capture this perfectly.
9. There’s no better friend than a sister
You know how the saying goes: you have friends for a reason, friends for a season, or friends for a lifetime. Sisters definitely fall into the third category of friend. So, why not wear that proudly on your arm? Especially since there really is no better friend than a sister.
10. One of two
This is a really simple tattoo that can be customized if need be. You’re one of five? Then, you can get that inked, instead. It’s not a gender-specific statement either, so it could be used for a mix of siblings, too! Although we can’t blame these sisters for preferring a cute cursive for their tattoo – we can imagine it would work really well if it was done in either mom or dad’s handwriting, too.
11. Hidden words in a delicate picture
From one direction, it looks like a beautiful rose blossoming from a twirling stem. But looking from another direction, you can see “sis” clearly written with the end of the flower! It’s these kinds of images that remind us of those deeply personal secrets that only sisters can know.
12. Similar, but different, sister tattoos
Chances are if you’ve ever revealed to a stranger who your sister is, you get one of two kinds of responses. Either it’s, “Oh wow, of course! You guys are so similar!” Or, “Really? You guys are nothing alike.” But, both you and your sister know the truth: the two of you have just as many things in common as you do have differences. And that’s why these tattoos would be perfect for you guys – you’re similar but different.
13. Itty bitty avocados
You love guac, and you love your sister. She loves her avocados, and she loves you too. So, why not get a cute tattoo commemorating just how important both of them are to you and your sister? The tiny hearts are a great addition to show who’s sister número una, and sister número dos.
14. Small elephants
You know why elephants are such a great tattoo to show family bonds? Because that’s what they’re all about. Elephants have been found to place a lot of importance on their relationships, and they have long memories to boot. Let’s face it, we all know you’ll never forget that one time your sister borrowed your dress and ruined it – and you still love her, anyway. So, that’s why matching elephant tattoos are quintessential sister tatts.
15. Birds on a branch
This is the perfect tattoo if you and your sisters have flown the nest, so to speak. You know that no matter where you babes end up, you’ll always know you can fly home to be with your flock. And doesn’t the thought of that just make your heart soar?
If you’ve ever thought that maths are a strong point for you, then this is the tattoo to get with your sisters. Or, if you’ve ever been known to flip them the bird, then this is also a great tattoo for you troublemakers. Oh, what? You weren’t arguing, you were just showing off your tatt? Sure, Jan.
17. The sneaky pop culture reference
Okay, maybe this isn’t that sneaky, considering every babe with taste was watching The Powerpuff Girls in the 90s. But, it is nice to think that, underneath it all, you and your sisters are just superheroes made of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Oh, and Chemical X.
