Is your sister your best friend? You’re not alone! So many siblings get matching sister tattoos to celebrate the unique bond they share. What sorts of designs do they go for? Anything is on the table really. Some are hyperspecific with nostalgia-inducing designs that read very sweet and oh, so sentimental. Others are more basic in their scope. For instance, one of the most popular designs is simply the word “sisters” done in a cool font.
The sky’s the limit here but we want to urge you to think outside the box for your matching sister tattoos. The more personal you can make them the more meaningful they will be. Think back to childhood books you both loved or a place you both felt most together. Further, you might even turn to nature to consider flowers, animals, or landscapes that you both love. Once you get the basic concept down, it’s time to meet with a tattoo artist that can make your vision a reality. To get you started, we’ve rounded up some amazing, matching sister tattoos that we think will help inspire your very own ideas. Let’s talk ink!

“No matter what” and “No matter where,” these matching sister tattoos say. They are sweet sentiments that complement each other well. A neat typeface has been chosen which is blissfully simple.
We find two skeletal hands engaged in a pinky promise in these matching tattoos. The sister who shared this image wrote “till death do us part.”
Natural elements will always be winning designs among matching sister tattoos. We find two goldfinches in these designs that aren’t too “matchy-matchy” but still feel related.
These two sisters must love enjoying a great fete. We find the party emoji tattooed on each’s ankle. What a fun idea!
Matching Sister Tattoos – Portrait Edition
Portrait tattoos can be extremely tricky and many don’t live up to people’s expectations. However, with these two sisters, we find a great design that still gets its point across without overdoing it.
Evil eye tattoos are extremely popular these days. They are said to ward off evil spirits and curses. We think they look neat as matching sister tattoos.
A Pair of Poison Apples
For this pair of Disney-lovers, we find two poison apples done in slightly different styles but overall matching. The colorful inks used really make these babies pop.
Again, anything botanical and delicate makes for understated matching sister tattoos. Less is more and we find that proven out in this design with some extremely fine lines.
Winnie & Piglet
Nostalgia is the motivation for a great many matching sister tattoos. These inspired by Winnie the Pooh are just so sweet. Clean lines make them remarkable examples.
Twinning Is Winning
“Twinflame,” was the word that these twins found compelling enough to get inked. A word that means something to you both totally works for matching tattoos but we are partial to more visually interesting designs that show off all that’s great about the art of tattooing. But, do you!
2 Years, 2 Months, 2 Days
These two sisters were born 2 years, 2 months, and 2 years apart. That interesting coincidence is celebrated with the number 222 in these matching sister tattoos.
How a darling are these two seahorses? The addition of a floral flourish really turned out great.
Kiki’s Delivery Service
These sisters are fans of the animated film Kiki’s Delivery Service which inspired their matching tattoos. If you and your sister have been fond of a film, book, piece of art since childhood, let it inspire your ink.
We find two different Phoenix designs done in the same colors for tattoos that stand on their own but also look fantastic together.
Marvel at these matching sister tattoos and the teeny-tiny lines and dots that have been employed to create them. For tattoos this fine, you might request the stick and poke method which can yield more precise designs like these.
As you’ve seen on this list, most sisters choose black ink for their matching tattoos. There are merits for both color and black. You are treated to a more graphic design when you choose all black. Notice the simple shapes used to make these matching rose tattoos.
For Baby, Coco
This little fur baby is named Coco. She was a beloved family pet. These two sisters decided to pay tribute to their pet in their tattoos. Coco loved eating tomatoes and you will see that detail apparent in the scripted name near the bottom right of the design.
A Couple of PC Gamers
Watercolor tattoos are extremely popular today and you will find them often among matching sister tattoos. It’s not the easiest thing for a tattoo artist to pull off but this is a great example of how it can turn out.
Kind Of Koi
These two fishes seem to represent the two sisters who got them tattooed. Evocative purple and pink inks look so romantic and beautiful.
Matching tattoos that come together to form a single object are wildly popular. We find two halves of a butterfly here, each in its own color scheme. We think it is a winning concept.
Not Those Hard Days
“Don’t let the hard days win,” these matching sister tattoos gently remind each sister. Landscapes are popular choices and will be perfect for nature lovers.
Here’s another one of the matching sister tattoos that come together to form a complete object. Sunshine feels like a smart choice if you’d like a sign that always brings you brightness.
Anything goes! Why not some cute blueberries? They certainly look awfully sweet.
Delicate and magical these matching floral designs are different with an L initial and A initial being the only difference between the two. They are so beautiful that they will stand on their own but there’s a certain enchantment that comes from seeing them side-by-side.
Day Or Night
The moon meets star motif is one that you will find a lot of among matching tattoos. These look very cool thanks to all the linework employed to add texture and mood.
We’re not sure how many sisters out there want half-sleeve tattoos that match, but if it’s something that intrigues you, it’s totally possible. These two foxes stun with vibrant color and plenty of movement.
Inspired by the “Sisters” scene from White Christmas in which two performers perform a song with two blue, feather fans, these truly inspired designs are meaningful in addition to being beautiful.
Sophisticated and understated, these matching tattoos contain very basic botanical elements and the same initials. If a “less is more” approach is how you tend to approach things, something similar could also work out for you.
Mixing It Up
We find a pair of sisters with a shared love of baking in this photo. They chose mixer beaters for their matching sister tattoos. Again, the tattoos that are personal will always be most meaningful.
The Same But Different
Breathtaking, right? These two sisters chose the same concept but requested different designs for their matching tattoos. This allows for a sense of togetherness but also individualism.
One of our favorite examples on this list are these little metallic hearts. Yes, hearts are extremely common among matching sister tattoos but few are done so well.
We did not expect to see matching sister tattoos inspired by The Shining when we started researching this list but these tattoos really stood out for all the right reasons. They’re eerie, unique, and we bet there are few to no other sisters with anything like it. Get weird and reap the benefits.
Leaning Into It
We find another eerie example in these witches that are so stylistic and haunting that we had to include them on this list. If the creep factor is a must, work with an artist with a point of view and you could walk away with something equally as original.
Sure! Animals are always great inspirations for your tattoos. Rainbow pigs are not likely to appeal to all but if you and your sister love an animal, you can get creative with how it is turned into a tattoo. It’s all about expressing your unique point of view.
