Getting into a serious relationship can make you feel all tingly inside. If you've had the pleasure of being with your other half for quite some time, chances are you're looking to take it to the next step. For some, that could mean moving in together or getting married. For others (who may already be married), the next step could be marking their love with some pretty cool ink. If you and your partner have been considering getting some matching artwork, you'll need to make sure your list of tattoo ideas for couples is both healthy and legit.

Like with any tattoo, you want to make sure that you do thorough research on what you're getting and who's doing it.

More importantly, you want to make sure that the person getting it with you isn't someone that is only making a guest appearance in your lifelong show. Regardless of what you get and who you get it with, just make sure that it looks as great as you do.
