Growing up with a sister is an experience that you can only truly understand if you did it yourself. When you have a sister, you always have someone to hang out with…or argue with, depending on the day.
But in many cases, as the two of you grow older, your relationship matures and you find yourself with a best friend who’s known you for pretty much your whole life.
And in that case, you might want to get a tattoo to document your very special bond.
Here are 20 sister tattoos that perfectly capture what it’s like to have a sister.
She knows all your inside jokes, embarrassing stories, and silly nicknames. In other words, she’s your other half. Why not get a tattoo to show that?
Here’s another tattoo that’s perfect for commemorating the thousands of pinky swears you made each other participate in.
The detail in this one is super impressive.
One sister gets “Mischief,” the other gets “Managed.”
Something tells me their parents might agree with the sentiment.
This is perfect for those times you forget whether you’re the older sister or the younger sister. Just take a quick glance down at your wrist for the reminder.
You can even add the birth years if you want to get extra fancy.
I love how this one shows both the similarities and differences between the two sisters.
We’re just getting started…
Who doesn’t love adorable elephants?
This one also shows the dynamic of the younger sister following her older sister’s footsteps.
Not all sister tattoos have to be super obvious, of course.
I’m a big fan of this beautiful and delicate lotus flower design.
Here’s a pair of tattoos depicting Ruby and Sapphire from Steven Universe! If you’re considering getting a tattoo with your sister, don’t forget about your favorite shows or movies!
Here’s another delicate tattoo design that’s sure to impress those who see it.
And then you can say, “Wanna see something even more impressive?” And then BAM your sister can show her matching tattoo and everyone will be in awe.
Whether you’re a big fish in a little pond or a small fish in a big pond, never forget that you and your sister started out in the same pond and you can always swim back to each other when you need to.
Ooh, more arrows! Maybe these can symbolize how the two of you are always moving forward with determination.
Or maybe they’re to remind you of the time you got so mad at each other you threw darts at each other’s head. Either way.
Is it just me or did it just get super poetic over here?
e.e. cummings would be proud. Probably.
This is a perfect example of sister tattoos that clearly go together but aren’t completely identical.
Just like you and your sister! Unless you are identical twins, in which case you might like this next design.
Is this the same tattoo on two different people or just a clever use of a phone and a mirror? You may never be able to tell.
(Just kidding. It’s two different people with the same tattoo.)
Believe it or not, this delicate tree design is actually a stick-and-poke tattoo. Who knew this level of detail was possible with the stick-and-poke method?
Sister love; Poppy for October and Violet for February. All the best in Musical Theatre and Environmental Social justice! You rock, ladies. #poppytattoo @zenink #violetattoo #singleflower #sistertattoos #birthdaytattoo #birthflowertattoo #birthflower #unc #wnc #abtech #ashevillenc #ashevilletattoo #springbreakasheville #springbreaknc
Here’s a clever tattoo that people might not even realize is a tribute to sisterhood. These sisters got birth month flowers tattooed on them! (Curious about your own birth month flower? You can find it out here.)
If you have more than one sister, might I suggest going the Pokémon route?
Fun? Check. Nerdy? Check. A sweet way to show off your relationship? Check.
Just like sisters, cacti can sometimes be a bit prickly and pokey on the outside.
That why they make the perfect sister tattoo subject.
This is a very sweet sentiment until one of them tells the other that the world doesn’t revolve around her, which is completely at odds with the tattoo. Still, until that day, this is a very nice pairing.
Look, not every sister tattoo is going to be lotus flowers and arrows. Sometimes, you’ve just gotta remind each other that all men must die.
