Cousin Tattoos: Family is super important. I don’t know about you, but my mom is my hero, and my sister is my go-to person. But, they’re not the only ones I love a lot. I’m also really close to my cousins, and I consider them some of my best friends.
Cousins are special because they’re like siblings, but without all the sibling drama. I adore my cousins, even though we might live far apart. When we get together for a family gathering or holiday, it’s like no time has passed at all. It’s safe to say that cousins are the best friends forever, and that’s why you might think about getting matching cousin tattoos.
Tattoos can be a way to express who you are. It’s like showing off art to the whole world that’s a unique symbol of something special that really means a lot to you. If you have tattoos, you’re probably used to people asking, “What’s the story behind that one?” When you get a best friend tattoo with your cousin, you actually enjoy telling everyone how awesome your cousin is.
If you and your partner in crime are up for getting a tattoo, here are 12 simple designs to consider. They might be small or uncomplicated, but the meaning behind them is huge. No matter how far apart you are, you’ll always be connected – and that’s what family is all about.
01 Like Vines, You Intertwine
These flowery vines show how you and your cousin are connected. The branches also symbolize how your love will keep growing and thriving, just like the nature around you. I really adore the blue flowers added for a nice touch of color because I’m a fan of all things bright and flowery.
02 For All Of Those Pinky Promises You’ve Kept
When you were a kid, you most likely made tons of pinky swears with your cousin to hide things from your folks. Those secrets you shared with your best friend are locked away forever, and that’s what makes this tattoo so meaningful. The phrases “no matter what” and “no matter where” also reveal that, even though you’re far apart, your bond remains unbreakable.
03 She Is The Sun To Your Moon
Almost any object in the sky can be a fantastic choice for your first tattoo. These uncomplicated designs are incredibly lovely. They also signify that you two are unique but also connected. You might not have the same parents, but you share a bond through your blood.
04 You Are Just “Two Paper Airplanes Flying”
Just like in Taylor Swift’s song “Out Of The Woods,” you and your cousin are like “two paper airplanes flying.” When that song first came out, I’m sure you remember how there were a ton of paper airplanes showing up all over the place as Best Friends Forever (BFF) necklaces. And you know what comes next after necklaces, right? BFF tattoos! So, it’s pretty obvious that a tattoo is where the two of you are headed.
05 Infinity Arrows
A solo arrow tattoo typically means strength and protection from harm. You can count on your cousin to always keep you safe, and she’s got your back through thick and thin. The infinity symbol inside the arrow indicates that her protection knows no bounds and goes on forever.
06 These Burrito And Taco Tats Are Too Cute For Words
I can’t stop admiring how adorable these burrito and taco tattoos are, with their cheerful hands and happy faces. They’re definitely too cute to eat, but not too cute to ink on your skin. I wouldn’t want to devour these little guys, but now I’m starting to feel hungry, and I think it’s time for a trip to Chipotle! 🌮🌯😋
07 This Simplistic Ariel Tattoo, When You’re Mer-Made To Be Friends
This tattoo has two things I love – simplicity and color. It’s not too complicated, but from the few colorful lines, you can see your favorite little mermaid swimming around. This is a great choice to express how happy you are to be a part of your cousin’s world.
