best friend tattoos

When having a rough week, needing relationship advice, or just wanting to hang out, who should a girl call? Her best friend, of course! She's the one person who really gets what's going on, and there's no better feeling than that. So why not take the friendship to the next level? We're talking good old-fashioned BFF tattoos! Perhaps getting a tattoo is already on the bucket list. Well, adding a buddy to the task is sure to make the moment truly special. 

Whether it's the one partner-in-crime that has been a BFF since childhood or a favorite group of ladies that shares everything Sex and the Citystyle, good friends are some of the most important relationships in our lives. 

And who knows? It might make the anxiety of getting a first tattoo a little less painful. Or at least someone will be there for moral support. It might even spark some ideas for tattoos that match or are part of a larger image that two friends can share.

So, what better way to show some loyalty to each other than the ultimate BFF tattoo? Here are 15 best-friend tattoos that will seriously make any BFFs want to schedule their appointments together right away. Be prepared to send some ideas over to the bestie!

    This Instagram user explained her bff tattoo:

    "Con•gru•ence; harmony; compatibility; unity; Soul sister, best friend, roommate, ride or die, my girl my girl my girl! Thankful for you everyday. Lucky to have someone who I can share the deepest and darkest with and get nothing but positivity back. Been there for each other since day one and will continue to be there forever. Love you best friend."

  • Coffee Lovers Best Friend Tattoos


    If two besties are both coffee addicts then little mugs of coffee are the perfect tattoo choice. This small design is super cute and has a fun splash of color behind it. 

  • Ying & Yang Best Friend Tattoos


    Ying and yang symbols are a common thing to get with a best friend or partner and these ones are stunning. We love how they have a night and day design and both have such beautiful colors and little details. 

  • Lemonade Best Friend Tattoos


    Making lemonade out of lemons is a lot easier with a BFF. These cute complementary tattoos are so happy and summery.

    There are many different ways to express it when someone loves their bestie "to infinity and beyond" and this illustration is a pretty creative way to do that. The rocket ship and planet complement each other really well.

    Two queens deserve crowns! These best friends got cute little matching crowns and we think it's the perfect minimalist tattoo.

    When two best friends know they're "the bomb" why not get it symbolized in ink! These bomb tattoos are perfect for a couple of bombshell BFF's.

    Cacti in fedora pots ... we're here for it! These creative illustrations are a great example of making the tattoos their own and although it's unusual, we're sure it's perfect for these two besties. 

  • Roses Best Friend Tattoos


    A single rose is a beautiful tattoo idea, but it's even better when it matches a loved one. These matching hand tattoos are perfection.

  • Whimsical Best Friend Tattoos


    Sometimes an elegant, whimsical matching design is the perfect thing for two best friends to get inked. This floral butterfly design is very pretty and looks great on both of them! 

  • Stick Figure Best Friend Tattoos


    This stick figure appears to be walking across these three besties' ankles and it's so clever! Having tattoos that connect when shown side-by-side is a really awesome way to take a design to the next level. 

  • Infinity Heart Best Friend Tattoos


    Squad tattoos are also a really fun way to show dedication to a group of besties. These four ladies got an infinity sign with a heart, which is simple and perfect for a small wrist tattoo. 

  • Corkscrew Best Friend Tattoos


    This tattoo idea is perfect for wine lovers! The infinity sign and corkscrew are super cute and these besties also added the year they became friends.

    These quirky sloth tattoos are so unique and adorable. It's always nice to think outside the box when it comes to getting new ink, especially if there is something unusual that bff's like or remind each other of.

    These complementing quote tattoos are perfect for the "wild" friend and the more "responsible" friend. We also like how they added a sun and a moon. Opposites sure can go great together!

    These matching "No Matter What" tattoos are simple and cute with a lot of meaning. This Instagrammer captioned the photo: "No matter what God decides to do in our lives and no matter where He ends up taking us, you will always be my gal pal." 

    More from CafeMom: 

  • Night and Day Best Friend Tattoos


    "You're stuck with me forever just like the sun and moon, I love you," wrote this Instagram user. Instead of getting a matching tattoo, you and your best friend could also get images that complement one another -- like this beautiful sun and moon.

  • Anime Best Friend Tattoos


    If you and your squad bond over certain interests, then that could be a great way to determine a group tattoo. These ladies got shoulder tattoos of the same Studio Ghibli anime character in different poses.

  • "Promise" Best Friend Tattoos


    These ladies pinkie-promised to be friends forever -- and they got the ink to prove it. Their matching "Promise" tattoos are customized with their own different-colored hearts and are placed perfectly along the sides of their pinkie fingers.
