Sister tattoos are, of course, for siblings but they can extend to close friendships that have stood the test of time. Matching sister tattoos are a way to celebrate your friendship and express your unconditional love. They also act as reminders of that love no matter how far apart the two of you might be. Each time you look at your sister tattoo, you are going to be filled with the peace of mind that you share it with someone who equally feels for you!
We wanted to discover the sister tattoos folks are getting so we turned to social media to get a better understanding of matching sister tattoos that celebrate sisterly love. We came across a host of designs that touched us in their sincerity and tenderness. We’d now love to share them with you in the hopes that some of these tattoo designs can inspire your very own sister tattoos.
Get Inspired by These Thoughtful and Tender Sister Tattoos!
“Love you most” and “Love you more,” these sister tattoos say. While these designs are similar the shading on the flowers is slightly different for each. It’s important to make sure your tattoo appeals to you on its own not just when you’ve got it next to your sister’s design.
Face to Face
How extraordinary 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 tattoos are more symbols of shared love than anything else.

Do Your Thing
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.
More Sun and 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!
You Make the Rules
If you and your sister dance to the beat of your own drum, get weird with it. We find matching sister tattoos here of a wolf and a penguin. These designs are likely very meaningful to these sisters but they are opaque for onlookers.
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.”

These two knocked it out of the park!

To the Heavens and Beyond
The message, “I love you to the heavens and beyond… forever and ever,” is duplicated in these sister tattoos. The message sits above a flower for each which helps bring personality to these designs. It keeps them from being too matchy.
