by Sherri Owens

From simple designs to complex imagery, I have included the top soulmate tattoos for you and your twin flame to choose from!

I have always felt so honored to design and ink soulmate tattoos. This is because there is such a powerful sentiment about this design. For some, it is about their deep connection to themselves, and for others, it is about a bond between two people. In any case, it is a beautiful process to be included in.

This post contains a wide variety of soulmate tattoo ideas so that there is something there for everyone! I have also included some insight and history for each category.

The Best Soulmate Tattoo Ideas

Here are the top soulmate tattoo designs that you should check out for yourself:

Simple Soulmate Tattoos

With these soulmate tattoo ideas, only the word soulmate is included in the tattoo. This is a great option if you want a more minimalistic tattoo or want a design that is quite small. These tattoos work well as finger tattoos, wedding band tattoos or even behind-the-ear tattoos.

This design is also an excellent option if you are on the lookout for matching couple tattoos or matching tattoos in general. Just get your soulmate tattoo in the same font for each person and it will be clear who your tattoo is referring to!

On the surface, such soulmate tattoo ideas may seem a little basic or boring but this doesn't have to be the case. If you want these tattoos, especially matching couple tattoos, to stand out, then choose a font that makes a statement.

In case you are looking for even more meaningful couple tattoos, then consider getting your soulmate matching couple tattoos done in each other's handwriting!

Of course, just because you want meaningful soulmate matching couple tattoos doesn't mean that you have to choose a serious font. No, you can have plenty of fun with your soulmate matching couple tattoo.

If you do want something a bit more uplifting or cheerful for your soulmate matching couple tattoos, then feel free to use crazy fonts and vivid colors. Remember, there are no rules with your singular or matching tattoos. You are free to do whatever your heart desires!

Another thing to keep in mind is that your singular or matching couple tattoos don't have to be done in English. You can choose any language that you like. However, if you do decide to go with a language that you aren't too fluent or familiar with, make sure to do your research.

It is very easy to get translations for an independent or a couple tattoo quite wrong. So, I would suggest using a proper translator rather than relying on some unknown online program to get the job done.

Soulmate Tattoos with Hearts

At the end of the day, soulmates love one another regardless of flaws and circumstances. So, what better independent or matching tattoo to get than a soulmate design with a heart?

One of the reasons that I love (no pun intended!) such soulmate tattoo ideas is because they are so simplistic but still have so much significance. With just one small symbol, you can turn independent or matching tattoos into a display of love and affection.

It is up to you to decide how you want to integrate a heart into a single soulmate tattoo or soulmate-matching couple tattoos. You can simply have one in front of or after the word. Or, you can have a heart in between the words soul and mate.

In case you would like a slightly more classic take for your single soulmate tattoo or soulmate matching couple tattoos, then you can have the word placed inside the heart!

Floral Soulmate Tattoos

Personally, I think that such soulmate tattoo ideas are perfect for anyone who is looking for platonic couple tattoos. However, you can always make this a romantic soulmate matching couple tattoo by using a flower that has more romantic connotations such as the red rose.

Another reason that I like these tattoos for an independent tattoo or couple tattoos is because it can be quite meaningful. After all, flowers can be symbols of life, love, passion, and beauty!

Rather than choosing flowers for their aesthetics, I would suggest looking up the various meanings associated with different flower species. Then, choose the flower that represents your friendship or relationship best of all.

Another idea for couple tattoos is to get the birth month flower of each other inked on you. Of course, you are free to get each other's favorite flowers tattooed on each other if you simply want a pretty matching tattoo.

Infinity Soulmate Tattoos

Let's face it, infinity tattoos are kind of the perfect symbol for soulmate tattoo ideas. As you are probably aware, the infinity sign is associated with something that is never-ending. Due to this, it works really well for soulmate loyalty couple tattoos.

It is a way of saying that you will always be there for one another. It can also be a sign that the two of you will be together forever.

Now, one of the most common independent or couple tattoos involves having the word soulmate inscribed along the curves of the infinity symbol.

Of course, you can come up with your own concepts and keep the word and the symbol separate from one another.

Split Soulmate Couple Tattoos

I have to say that this is one of my favorite soulmate tattoo ideas. This is because it is a physical and artistic depiction of what the word soulmate means.

So, with these couple tattoos, you have one-half of the word on one person and the other half on the other person. In most cases, the tattoo is on the same place such as your wrists, arms, ankles, etc. So, when you put these two halves together they form the word perfectly.

The reason that these couple tattoos work so well is that they show that you are two parts of a whole. And, that while you can exist separate from one another, you are something truly transcendent when you are together.

If you would like a slightly different kind of couple tattoos, then you can ask your tattoo artist to split the word in a more unusual way. For instance, one person could have SO on the top and MA on the bottom. The other one will have UL and TE.

It is only when they line up with the other that the word will make sense. This kind of tattoo can have a beautiful message. That the two of you are only whole when you are together.

Butterfly Soulmate Tattoos

This kind of tattoo can actually have a rather big meaning attached to it. This is because butterflies are associated with change and transformation. So, getting this tattoo can be a way of saying that regardless of how each of you changes and grows, you will still be each others' soulmates.

For this kind of tattoo, you have a few options with the design. If you want, each person can get a butterfly tattoo and have the word soulmate inked under it.

In case you are looking for more subtle tattoos, though, then you can ask your tattoo artist for matching butterfly wing tattoos instead. Here, one-half of the wing will be inked on each person. When lined up, they form a whole butterfly.

With this kind of tattoo, you don't have to include the word soulmate as it is fairly obvious that this is a matching tattoo.

Arrow Soulmate Tattoos

Another idea that you may want to consider is getting a soulmate arrow tattoo. On the surface, this tattoo can look rather simple but can be loaded with meaning.

After all, arrows are associated with the future as they can technically only move forward. Therefore, this kind of couple tattoo could show that you are looking forward to what the future holds for you and your soulmate.

It can also mean that regardless of the direction that the future will take you, you and your soulmate are on this journey together.

Moon and Sun Soulmate Tattoos

For these soulmate tattoos, there are different design options available to you. If you want a couple tattoo, then both people can get either sun tattoos or moon tattoos. You can also get half a moon or half a sun for each person that line up to create a whole tattoo.

Your other option is to get a sun tattoo on one person and the moon on the other. This can be a great idea if you want a more meaningful tattoo.

See, the sun and moon are opposing symbols. The sun is associated with daytime and is traditionally considered a masculine symbol. The moon, on the other hand, is linked to the night and is a representation of femininity.

Despite being so different from one another, though, they work together to create a harmonious balance. This can describe the relationship between you and your soulmate.

King and Queen Soulmate Tattoos

If you are a heterosexual couple, then a king and queen soulmate tattoo may be a good choice for your soulmate tattoo ideas.

One of the cool things about this kind of couple tattoo is that there are so many design options for you to choose from. If you want to keep things simple, then a king and queen crown or the K or Q found in card decks will suffice.

In case you want a more intricate tattoo, then you can consider getting a portrait of a king and a queen for each person. Make sure that they have a complementary style so that you can tell that they are part of a matching set.

If you would like something even more dramatic, then get skeletonized king and queen tattoos. This can depict that not even death can pull you apart.

Lion and Lioness Soulmate Tattoos

This is another option that works well for more traditional gender roles within a relationship. You can get lion and lioness half tattoos for each person.

Once again, each of these tattoos should be in a similar design or have corresponding design elements to one another. This is how you show that they are everlasting love soulmate tattoos.

Dragon Soulmate Tattoos

If you aren't one for tradition, then you may want to consider matching dragon tattoos for your soulmate tattoo ideas instead!

This kind of tattoo can portray that your love for each other is epic, practically mythical. It can also suggest that each person gives the other a sense of freedom and adventure.

Twin Flame Soulmate Tattoos

A twin flame is a different way of saying soulmate. And, it is a great option if you want a beautiful and different kind of soulmate tattoo.

According to certain legends, people started off by being creatures with two faces on one head, four arms, four legs, etc. However, the gods deemed that these creatures had too much power and split them in two.

However, their souls were twin flames and despite being separated and scattered, the people that once belonged together will continue to search for each other until they find each other.

Red Thread of Fate Soulmate Tattoos

This is another take on the soulmate tattoo. According to certain legends, there is a red thread tied around the fingers of the soulmate. And, if you unwind and follow this thread, it will lead you to the person that you are meant to be with.

As the name suggests, with these tattoos, two hands are reaching out to each other. This depicts each soulmate trying to find their way back to one another.

Of course, the phrases don't always have to be serious. If you are two people who like to laugh and have a good time together, then you can consider funny couple tattoos if you like!

Who Can Get a Soulmate Tattoo?

I do want to discuss who can get a soulmate tattoo, particularly matching tattoos.

A lot of people do use the term soulmate to identify a romantic partner. Certainly, a soulmate can be a person that you have fallen in love with and who appears to be a perfect match for you. In this case, you can get soulmate-matching couple tattoos.

At the same time, a soulmate can refer to a friend or a platonic relationship. This is because one definition of the word soulmate is someone who understands you completely and is perfectly suited to being in a loving partnership with you.

As a result, a friend or a family member can be considered your soulmate. And, as a result of this, you can get matching tattoos with this individual. After all, a matching couple tattoo isn't just meant for people in romantic relationships.

In this case, you may be wondering what the difference would be between such matching tattoos. For instance, would there be a discernible difference between soulmate matching couple tattoos and matching tattoos meant for friends?

If you want, you can have more of a romantic element for a couple tattoo or married couple tattoos. Or, you can get more simplistic matching couple tattoos so that they can be construed in either way.

At the end of the day, being a soulmate to another person isn't necessarily about meeting romantic needs as much as it is about meeting somebody's emotional, spiritual, and even ideological requirements.

From sweet imagery to complex stories, there are so many soulmate tattoos for you to choose from. All that you need to do is determine which design feels right for you and maybe even your partner!
