Best friend tattoos are fun. They can be an incredibly symbolic and memorable thing to do with each other. Most importantly, they show the world and your best friend that ‘best friends forever’ is not just something you say, but something you show – by getting tattoos that last, well, forever!
20. Opposites Attract
As cliched as it may sound, opposites do attract and this notion carries more weight and gravitas when you express it through tattoos. This way, you’re not only linked by ink but most especially, you’re bonded by blood! It’s cute, meaningful and simple enough to do in one sitting–a matching or mismatching tattoos for best friends who are always on the go.

19. Shared Sense of Humor
Nothing bonds a friendship more than a shared sense of humor–especially the dry and sick variety. When you can laugh at yourselves and take pleasure at the silliness of it all by way of matching tattoos that depict torture or execution devices, that’s when you know you’re pretty close. So ‘keep your chin up’ and ‘hang in there’ because your friendship might last as long as your tattoos; and that’s no laughing matter!

If melodrama is your thing, then these incredibly schmaltzy best friend tattoos may be just for you. I kid of course! These are actually sweet and thoughtful tattoos; not to mention well-placed.

17. Double Trouble Tattoos

16. Shared Philosophies
This best friend tattoo is for the philosophers or philosophers at heart. This tattoo design pretty much shows how special, deeply-rooted and profound your friendship is–well at least that’s the goal. When you share philosophies, especially through ink, you most likely think alike and that’s the best kind of friendship there is. Just don’t get too comfortable with the kinship as familiarity breeds contempt. The more we know someone, the more we find flaws in them. Or am I overthinking this? Well just like what the tattoo says, ‘hakuna matata’, ‘no worries’. Keep calm and share philosophies…
15. Sun and Moon Tattoos
Our friendship is as divine and ethereal as the sun and moon up in the heavens. Well, that’s what I’m reading into these matching celestial best friend tattoo designs. It’s as if these tattoos illustrate that your friendship is extra special, that it’s transcendental and boundless. As far as designs go, it’s straightforward, and rightfully so as the meaning behind them should be the front and center of this matching best friend tattoo, not the design itself.
14. Friendship Tattoo
This is for best friends who don’t see each other often like a long distance type of relationship ‘kinda’ thing. And it isn’t such a bad thing because as what they say, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” You don’t need to see each other often to show how much you care. And to borrow a quote from John Gabriel, “Best friends are like stars on a cloudy night, you may not see them but they are always there, through thick or thin their friendship will always shine bright.” Nuff said.
13. F.R.I.E.N.D.S Tattoos
It’s one of the few iconic TV shows that completely defined the 90’s. When it was cool to hang out in a coffee shop all day, when it was alright to bang your friends and when a simple ‘hairdo’ was the talk of the nation! Rachel fans, are you having nostalgia overload yet? But the more pressing question is, where did all the years go? Well, if your friendship is based solely on the love of the iconic ‘Friends’ TV show or anything and everything about the 90’s, well getting this matching best friend tattoo is understandable and may I say, very apropos. Wear it with like a shiny badge of honor like the proud 90’s kids you are!
12. PB + J Tattoo
What kind of sick, snotty, narcissistic human being doesn’t love peanut butter and jelly? That sweet, mouthwatering piece of heaven touching your mouth? I mean if you don’t love that, we can never be friends. And just like that divine combo, this best friend tattoo is sweet but not cloying–just the way I like it. Just the sight of this PB + J Tattoo makes me hungry. It’s truly an ‘eye candy’ in every sense of the word.
11. Completing the Picture

Custom Tattoo Design Quote:
As per the famous line from the movie Jerry Maguire, “You complete me,” this best friend tattoo is interdependent with each other. Neither piece makes sense alone. The only way for it to tell a coherent story is for it be placed side by side, like a real friendship. It wouldn’t be called a real friendship if only one is on board. The only way for a real friendship to work is for both parties involved to be equally committed to the relationship. Anything less is tantamount to failure.
10. Faith Friends Tattoos
Friendship is a spiritual thing, especially if it’s faith-based and when it’s immortalized in a tattoo. It takes a whole new meaning. This best friend tattoo may be simplistic but it is meaningful and incredibly moving. There’s not a whole lot of things to say about these pieces other than they are purposeful and significant. Faith is believing in something you do not necessarily see but undoubtedly feel from the heart. And this ‘faith friends tattoo’ is the manifestation of that feeling–no ifs, no buts.
9. Three Little Birds Tattoos
You don’t need to be a fan of Bob Marley and the Wailers to appreciate this best friend tattoo. Just like the immortal song, this three little birds tattoo is upbeat, inspirational and eternally sunny. A perfect pick me up piece, this design is especially intended for best friends with a carefree and easygoing disposition. With this best friend tattoo you don’t have to worry about a thing, cause every little thing’s gonna be alright’, just like the famous inspirational line from the song goes.
8. Best Buds Tattoos
Light em’ up cause you’re a lighter to my weed and I’m the weed to your lighter, either way, it’s addictive and fun–as it should be. This is a best friend tattoo that’s intended for best buds who would like to have a good time and smoke lots and lots of weed, because quite frankly, who doesn’t want to? Experience tranquility and inner peace with or without weed with this matching tattoos. It’s a transcendental high, a combination of euphoria and pain unlike any other! Trust me. So light em’ up!
7. Shared Passions Tattoos
Star Wars fanatic, this best friend tattoo is for you! Well, if you’re not living under a rock, you should know that a lightsaber, in the Star Wars Universe, is a symbol of the Jedi Order to uphold peace and order throughout the galaxy. It’s a weapon of elegance and might and anyone who owns it is definitely a cut above the rest. So if you and your bestfriend have matching lightsaber tattoos, then what you have is something special and it would probably last longer than most relationships. So be cool and may the force be with you!
6. Feather Tattoos
It’s light and airy, an ethereal tattoo design that commonly symbolizes freedom and fortune. When something is right, it feels light, like the weight of the world has been lifted off your shoulders. The same way when you find that special friend. Everything feels easy and breezy, like feathers floating in the air and subsequently break off into birds. It’s a perfect metaphor for a special kind of friendship, a kind that is immaculate and eternal; a best friend that uplifts you each and every single time.
5. BFF Infinity Tattoos
For a friendship that knows no bounds, try these matching BFF Infinity Tattoos. They’re cute and straightforward, like any fun relationship should.

With them, you can tell the world that what you got is exceptional and inexhaustible. These BFF Infinity Tattoos are more than just a symbol, they are, by all means, statement pieces of a long and lasting friendship.
4. Thick and Thin Tattoos
Through thick and thin, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part. Hmmm, sounds like a marriage vow? Well, it might as well is because friendship is similar to marriage; only that the former sometimes lasts longer than the latter. When you immortalize a friendship or a friend, you wouldn’t want a fair-weather variety, someone who’s only there for the good times and ditches you when things get tough. These ‘thick and thin’ tattoos are pretty much what they are. They are for those rare kind of friends who would stick with you through good times and bad times.
3. Individuality Best Friends
Sometimes, the most unlikely of friendships last the longest or the most unusual of parings make for the most beautiful relationships. There’s no rhyme or reason, it’s just the way it is. And this ‘Individuality Best Friends’ Tattoo celebrates the uniqueness between us. It puts focus on the diversity between us that makes relationships special, intead of the similarities and familiarity that would eventually breed contempt and compalcency. With these amazingly disparate tattoos, there are no differences that we can’t overcome.
2. Tattoo Quotes Best Friends
The mark of an awesome friendship is when you inadvertently complete each other’s sentences. Well in this case, quotes that bolster or strengthen each other. Tattoo quotes are cool in and of themselves but when they are deliberately tattooed across strategic locations in the body, they take special meanings. As the old adage goes: “Quotes are inspirations for the uninspired.” In the same way as friends, when they are real and truthful, they embolden and motivate you to be a better person. So matching tattoo quotes are meant for best friends who truly care for each other.
1. You and Your Best Friend!
Yup, just like what the matching tattoos said, best friends are partners in crime, like Bonnie & Clyde, Batman & Robin–you get my drift? Real friends are rare breeds as they know what strikes your fancy or push your buttons. They are like double edged swords; they bring out the best and worse in you. That’s why they are perfect companions for all your endeavors, even and especially those life-changing ones. When your best friend has helped you go through the toughest times in your life and if you are the same way to him/her, then you deserve this matching tattoos because the best of crimes are those that are done with passion and with a best friend/accomplice who’s equally passionate. Get a tattoo that has cartoon versions of yourselves: ink is one of the ultimate promises of the famous saying: “best friends forever.”
