Getting Inked Is More Fun With A Friend (41 BFF Tattoos)

No one forgets their best friend forever, especially when they have matching indelible tattoos. The best friend tattoo is a popular choice for besties who want to show a connection that goes deep. But how do you choose what to put on your body in ink?

We rounded up the most popular options, as well as some of the most inventive. Some best friend tattoos are two halves of one image that’s only complete when they line up, and the friends are reunited in the same place. Some are more like a story that’s told from one body to another. Some are symbols only the friends themselves understand. Some are patterns that can include more than two people, created BFF groups. Some are kind of basic.

But that’s okay! Basic B*tchess need friends, too—perhaps most of all. Whatever your personality, or the personality of your bestie, there’s a best friend tattoo below that might perfectly express the love, history, and aesthetics of your relationship. There’s also a Minion themed one.
