Sister tattoos are a great way to express your love, hope, and joy that you and your sisters share. The bond between sisters can be a powerful one.
Your sister knows all your secrets, she knows what embarrassing stories to tell on your birthday, and she loves you unconditionally. She is your best friend. Some sisters say they can communicate together without even talking.
Sister tattoos can have many different meanings; some carry a general meaning like a heart that sends a message of love, but others like a butterfly can make you think a bit more. As with any tattoo design, these tattoos will need some exploration to find the right elements or design for your tattoo that will forever, no matter how crazy and complicated life is, remind you of your life long bond.
Types of Sister Tattoos
Matching Sister Tattoos
If you and your sister are planning on getting a tattoo, you should get matching tattoos. For the tattoo design, think of something that both of you will be happy with that will remind you of your connection. You don’t have to get them in the same location as long as they match.
Sister Tattoos for 2
If it is just you and your sister getting a tattoo together, that means that you can make it something very personal to only you two. Think of designs where you each have half of a tattoo or the same object that you both like. Otherwise, think of symbolic designs that represent you and your sister.
Sister Tattoos for 3
When you are getting a tattoo for three sisters, you need to be more creative. You can either pick a memory that includes all three sisters or a tattoo design that each of you likes. Sister tattoos of 3 often have three cute objects representing the sister, and each of them makes one item highlighted to reflect their age order.
Sister Tattoos with Butterfly
These tattoos have a great message to give; they show how your love has changed and grown over time. Just like a butterfly grows and transforms from a tiny caterpillar, so does your love grows as children to adulthood. These sister tattoos designs will need personal items added to finish them off.
Just the Celtic knot’s design, with its interlocking and tightly woven, never-ending pattern, sums up a sister’s bond very well. Try Celtic knot patterns in a band design. In the middle of the two Celtic bands every 3 to 4 inches, a small north star helps keep you in touch with your sister in your busy life.
Small Sister Tattoos
If you’re not a big fan of showing off your ink and like to keep your tattoos discrete, a small tattoo is an excellent option for you. You can get it in a very discreet location. Generally, the smaller they are, the cuter they look.
Big Sister Little Sister Tattoos
You can use lettering to design a Big sister, little sister tattoo. You can also add your date of births. Your tattoo can be bigger or smaller than your sister, depending on whether you are the older or younger sibling.
Sister Symbol Tattoos
Coloring and Placements
The coloring of these tattoos depends on your tattoo designs. Colors for butterflies are reds, yellow, blue, green, purple, or a combination of them. Celtic knots most often are in green, but that is up to you. If you are getting a small one or use geometric shapes, then blackwork is an excellent option.
The entire list of sister tattoos will look great in any size. Small tattoos work well on the neck, upper chest, hands, and ankle. The larger tattoos look great on the upper shoulder, forearm, wrist, thigh, and leg. Take some time to talk over more possibilities and different design patterns with your tattoo artist, and look over all of the galleries to help get your creativity moving freely.
