Would you get matching tattoos with your future husband/wife?

I’m curious on what others personal opinions are on matching tattoos with your hubby/wife.

Personally, my fiancé and me currently have one matching tattoo together. A heart (mine) and an arrow (his) on our index fingers. We got them awhile back as a low key matching tattoo. We are thinking of getting intricate lines on our ring fingers after getting married and possibly traditional styled bears later on in life.

Before I met my fiancé, I was very much against getting matching tattoos with anyone, let alone a significant other. However, my views have changed, though he is the only exception.

How about you? Would you get a matching tattoo with your fiancé?

    I have one tattoo, but I'll probably never get another one. FH also doesn't like tattoos so we wouldn't do it, but I love the idea of tattooed wedding bands!

    I have a couple tattoos and as much as I love my FH and as much as I believe he is my end all be all, I'd never tattoo my partners name on me. If we wanted to get matching ones, depending on what they are, I'd probably be okay with it.

    FH and I are discussing getting coordinating tattoos after our wedding. For me, it depends on what the tattoo is. I would never get his name tattooed or anything like, cause that just totally is not my style. We're talking about getting the phrase "love never fails" from 1 Corinthians 13 in each other's handwriting, but he hasn't fully committed yet.

    FH wont get any tattoos, he was originally against them, but I got one in memory of my grandfather who passed away. He doesn't mind that I have one and plan to get more, but he's remained very adamant that there's only one tattoo he would even consider and it's definately not my style, so though I think it's a cute idea, it's not for us lol

    That being said, I see no problem with it. It's just not really us.

    My husband is rather against 'personal tattoos' for the sake of personal tattoos. He's an artist, so prefers to have tattoo artists really have at with their style, etc. He got one with his mother, but I think that's going to be it - and that was only because his sister got a mother/daughter tattoo and his mom would have been really hurt if he didn't do the same.

    Myself, I can't really think of anything that would make me want to - including getting married. I did once upon a time, but between having ever rotating interests, hobbies, etc., and my professional career, it doesn't really seem worth it.

    We are getting matching tattoos! We will both have the same initials once we are married (J.R.). I already have a J in a heart behind my ear, which he thinks is for him lol but I went with a friend when she got her first tattoo so she made me get one and that's what I got.

    We are going to get our wedding date in roman numerals as our matching tattoo. I was trying to find something that wasn't too girly.

    I think it'd depend on the tattoo, definitely not a name. I like the idea of the line for a wedding band.
    Overall my fiance isn't a tattoo person he says he can't commit to a design he'd like forever.
    Which is good he's self aware enough.

    My fiance and I both have tattoos and I would definitely be down for it. I would never get his name tattooed on me; but for sure a symbol that we mutually agree on is fine.

    I currently have 7 (will be 8 in a couple of weeks) and my fiance doesn't have any. He wants to get at least 1 but can't make up his mind about it. Lol I have 2 matching ones with my bestie and 1 with my daughter's father (not my fiance) so it would be cool with me to get a matching one with him. I don't mind if they match as long as it isn't something that needs to constantly be explained such as a key and a lock or something just in case we didn't work out (which I don't foresee happening but you never know).

    I totally would, but my FH doesn't want any tattoos (where as I have 7). He has no problem with tattoos, he just personally doesn't want any

    Neither of us like tattoos on ourselves, so NO.

    No. But neither of us have tattoos.
    We've discussed our own personal tattoo ideas, but I doubt I'll ever get one. Let alone a matching one with him. (We both have allergies. And I've had problems with piercings before due to allergies. So probably best for me to avoid tattoos in case of an issue.)

    We both love tattoos, and have quite a bit. However, my FH thinks it is incredibly bad luck to get matching tattoos with a partner, that could lead to a break up/divorce. I wouldn't mind a little V on my ring finger or even a little line to represent my band.
