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!
