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

Pinterest / TheTrendSpotter

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

Pinterest / Robyn Slaviero

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?

16. Fractions

Pinterest / Taiya

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

Pinterest / Cafe Mom Parenting

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.

Selena’s Family Says They’re Ready For The Grammys And They’ll Accept The Award For Her

Selena’s Family Says They’re Ready For The Grammys And They’ll Accept The Award For Her

Recently, it was announced that this year’s Grammy Awards were postponed until March thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. The news disappointed many Selena fans who were excited to see her posthumously awarded a lifetime achievement award.

However, her family has reiterated their intent to collect the award on Selena’s behalf, with her brother telling TMZ that they plan to make a family affair out of it.

Selena’s brother A.B. says the family is ready to accept her posthumous Grammy.

Selena’s older broth, A.B. Quintanilla recently spoke to TMZ about the family accepting Selena’s latest Grammy on her behalf. He said with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Selena’s parents will most likely stay home and that he and his sister Suzette Quintanilla will be in attendance if there’s an in-person ceremony.

“Coming on the end of [the pandemic], I would say that it’s not safe for my mother and father,” A.B. said. “They probably would be staying in.”

The Academy recently announced that the award show would be a smaller, virtual event taking place in March. But that’s no issue according to A.B. He said that he’s got grand plans to turn his sister’s award into a family affair and that they’ve got their popcorn ready.

He also says it feels like Selena’s still here whenever she wins an award or sets new records, even though it’s been a quarter-century since she was murdered.

“It’s kind of bittersweet because she’s breaking these records and she’s doing wonderful things but unfortunately she’s not here,” he admits. “It’s strange how people in their mindset, and even with me sometimes, it feels like she is here…I’m just happy to have been a part of it and that people are still enjoying the beautiful art that made because those pieces that Selena made, in the music world, those are van Gogh’s.”

A.B. also spoke about Netflix’s Selena: The Series, which debuted last month.

He said the series sheds more light on how their family played a part in Selena’s success. A.B. was Selena’s primary producer and songwriter and Suzette was the drummer in her band.

It would be great to see the whole family [accept Selena’s award],” A.B. said. “As people are seeing in the series, this was a family effort. A lot of people are in shock going, ‘Whoa A.B.! We didn’t know you were the guy that wrote the hits and you wrote the music and you had so much pressure on you.’ I’m very grateful for the series and for people learning from the series.”

The Grammy will not be Selena’s first.

In 1994, she became the first female Tejano singer to win in the Best Mexican-American Album category. During her award acceptance speech, Selena thanked her family. Her brother and sister helped to write, produce, and also played instruments on the album. Selena’s father Abraham worked as her manager.

Selena was nominated after her first Grammy win in 1995 for her fourth studio album, Amor Prohibido. Though she did not win the award, was thankful to be thought of in such high regard. She told a reporter at the time, “Just to be around these artists who are considered to be heavyweights is an honor.”

A Doorbell Camera Captured The Terrifying Moment A Neighbor Saved A Family From Their burning home

A Doorbell Camera Captured The Terrifying Moment A Neighbor Saved A Family From Their burning home

A family from Arizona has tragically been without a home since New Year’s Day. Fortunately, however, thanks to the swift efforts of a neighbor, they still have each other.

On New Year’s Day, the Salgado family was asleep in their home in Avondale, Arizona when they heard a frantic knock at their door. Nicole Salgado’s husband, who lived in the home with their children, opened the front door to find her neighbor shouting at her to get her family out of the house. It was on fire.

The Salgado family woke up New Year’s Day to find their house in flames.

“We were all asleep,” Salgado explained to CNN in an interview. “Then all of the sudden around 7:30 in the morning, we hear banging on our door and our doorbell is going off and we kind of get scared.”

Their neighbor, Carolyn Palisch, was there telling them to get out of the house. Footage from the family’s home security video shows their neighbor running past flames to get to the home.

“He opened the door and all I heard was our neighbor Carolyn saying your house is on fire you have to get out,” said Salgado.

Salgado, who is a mother to four children, hurried to gather her children. Together, all of them escaped the burning home safely. “It was just kind of frantic at first, making sure we got everyone out and the dogs out,” she explained. “Then once we realized the full extent of it we were just in shock as we watched our home burn.”

Sadly, the Salgado family lost all their belongings in the fire

Salgado explained that the roof of her house collapsed moments after they escaped. According to CNN, firefighters at the scene claimed that if the family had still been sleeping at the time the roof had collapsed they would have inhaled the smoke and likely passed out immediately.

We are so thankful to just be alive,” Salgado explained in a post to her TikTook page. She also included doorbell camera footage of the moment their neighbor came to the rescue.

Salgado’s video has been liked nearly 7 million times on TikTok.

“Never did we think it was going to blow up the way it did. But we are so grateful,” Salgado explained. “We are so glad it did for Carol, to show how amazing she is. If it wasn’t for her it’d be a totally different story. We feel so thankful to her. We’re always going to consider her family. She not only saved us, she saved our kids.”

Salgado says that the cause of the fire is still under investigation and shared that her family has created a Go Fund Me account to help them rebuild their lives.
