Do you have a best friend you love like a sister? Sister tattoos are, of course, for siblings but they can extend to special friendships that have stood the test of time. Matching tattoos are a way to celebrate your friendship and express your love. They also act as reminders of that love no matter how far apart you two might be. Every time you look at your sister tattoo, you are going to be filled with the knowledge that you share it with someone who equally cares for you!
We wanted to get inspired by the new sister tattoos people are getting so we turned to social media to get a better understanding of matching tattoos that celebrate sisterly love. We came across a ton of designs that surprised us in their sincerity and tenderness. We’d now love to share them with you in the hopes that some of these designs can inspire your very own matching tattoos. Let’s go!
Take a Look at These Stunning Sister Tattoos!
Let’s Face It
How stunning is this very minimalist tattoo of two sisters’ faces? It looks both emotional and heartfelt as well as sophisticated and cool. Work with an artist who can capture both your likenesses and you will not regret it!
For sister tattoos, you don’t have to get overly sentimental or put too much thought into it. Something that you both like and can share is the name of the game. These sister tattoos are more symbols of shared love than anything else.
The color-coordinated shoes really did for us. These delicate twig tattoos in differing colors look fantastic and would be easy to hide should one of you need to.
Here’s another way to go about. These sister tattoos are also botanical in nature with differing colors for added interest and personality. Get your best friend or sister’s favorite color tattooed on you and it will remind you of her every day!
If you are blood sisters or you grew up together, find a cute photograph of the two of you and ask your artist to riff on it for you. We find these minimal line drawings of two sisters here which just looks so charming and sweet.
Go All Out!
We find two Mandala-inspired sister tattoos here one with a sunflower and the other with a friendship-yellow rose. As you can see, the artist has completed both with plenty of care and made each design look so wonderfully special.
Sun & Moon
Here are a couple of truly remarkable sister tattoos. One is a beautifully ornate sun with the words “energy never lies” written below. The other is an equally decorated moon with the words “trust your vibes” underneath. These are definitely words to live by!
As we said with the star sister tattoos earlier, as long as you both love the design it does not need to be overly specific to feel meaningful. We find two line-drawing roses here with the word “sis” tattooed into each “stem.”
A very good idea for sister tattoos is to get some nesting dolls with your BFF or sisters. These magical-looking dolls are so full of whimsy and that quality definitely translates into tattoo form.
Of all the sister tattoos we came across there were a ton of these pinky promise tattoos. We imagine that you and your BFF are thick and thieves and you don’t even need to worry about those pinkies for kept promises but it’s a very cute sentiment!
Anchored by Love
How cute are these little hearts? We find each attached to an anchor which can symbolize so many things to so many people. If your bestie is your rock, sister tattoos like these will be perfect for you two!
Take a Hand
These sister tattoos are some of the most sentimental on the list. We find each carrying the promise to always be there. With just simple lines, you can have yourself designs that truly come from the heart.
Blue and orange are opposite each other on the color wheel but they look so good right next to one another! We love the sister tattoos that match but feature different colors because they express a degree of individuality. You’ll be happy with something similar, no doubt!
We love these sister tattoos because if you did not see them together, you would think it’s just a cool tattoo. But, together we see that they are flipped with the flames in black in one and skin tone on the other. That’s straight fire!

One of the best sayings that communicates “never change” in a more poetic way is “stay wild moon child.” We find the saying in these two sister tattoos that look witchy and full of magic.
Yin & Yang
How smart do these two sister tattoos look? One completes the other but they are not too matchy-matchy. Each design has its own unique decorative elements that really stand out when the tattoos are next to one another. Bravo!
For nostalgic sister tattoos, think back to your childhood when you and your BFF loved to play with one another. What were some of your favorite activities? Clearly, this person loved spending time out on the swings with her bestie. How tender!
How fun are these flower power “groovy” sister tattoos? We think they are a ton of fun and share a point of view. If you and your sister are a pair of groovy girls, you should totally do something similar!
Big & Little Dippers
We find two constellations in these sister tattoos. On the left, is the big dipper, which we must assume is for a big sister. On the right, we find the stars that make up the little one. How charming for a pair of stargazers!
There’s just tons of sweetness in this tattoo of mom holding her two little girls. If you and your sister want to get something to celebrate your mother, something like this would absolutely be cherished for life.
Feel free to get weird with your sister tattoos. These two did and we must admit they are some of our favorites on our list. Yes, we love a good cat tattoo but when it’s shared between BFFs or sisters it’s even more precious!
Daughters of Disney
Did you and your bestie grow up loving to watch the same movie together? Perhaps it was a classic like The Lion King. Disney tattoos remind us of being kids which is why they are so very popular among adults. Timon and Pumbaa look fantastic here in silhouette for these sister tattoos!
Watercolor tattoos are a huge trend at the moment so it came as no surprise to find sister tattoos that feature the cool style. Bleeding blue “paint” looks otherwordly on these two buggy tattoos.
Cats In Space
We don’t know why and we don’t care! Check out these kitty sister tattoos of a gray and pink cat both in space helmets. Aren’t they just the sweetest?
Bold & Red
If you’re going to go all in, go all in! We find this pair with matching red butterflies up their necks. You’re lucky if you have a sister or bestie that’s this committed as most just want something small. Red always looks fantastic and we recommend using it over black ink!
We find “one of two” in a beautifully crisp font for these two sister tattoos. If you’re going to get script, make sure to take plenty of time to choose the one that’s going to look the most unique.
Ice cream is just the greatest thing on earth and these two know what’s up! We find two ice cream cones that are similar but not exactly the same for these dairy-loving friends. If you want to be reminded of the best days of summer with your BFF, you should do something similar!
They Got Pride
These sister tattoos are so special as they both express Pride. Just simple bars of rainbow color make these designs look so vibrant and full of self-acceptance. We live!
Of all the sister tattoos we saw, hearts were the most ubiquitous designs. And, we mean that in a good way! Hearts are symbols that express love and you don’t need to reinvent the wheel for great designs. We find two hearts formed from flowers in these very pretty tattoos.
“A Hui Hou”
“A Hui Hou” is a Hawaiian phrase that means “until we meet again.” Did we save the best sister tattoos for last? We’ll let you be the judge of that but we do love the neon colors chosen for these and the sweet message!
There you go! What did you think of these sister tattoos? Do you want to share one with your best friend in life? We sure hope these matching tattoos inspired you to get some ink with someone you love to express just how much your bond means. Every single time you look at your sister tattoos, you are going to feel the love!
