By eternal connectivity in the tattoo relevance, I would be referring to the significance of matching tattoos. There is something so comforting about having the exact same piece as someone else who holds so much significance to you. Being that I actually have 3 matching tattoos with people (My mother and both my best friends) I feel as though we are connected even more so than usual due to them.
Though the popularity of them has risen, the underlying meanings of them are all different and unique which is why they are so appreciated. As you can tell I have 3 very different tattoos that are actually some of my most significant. Each tattoo tells a story in general but I feel as though when you have a matching one it doesn’t just tell a story, but an adventure of life. They tell a journey with the other person, the struggles, the good, the bad, the happy, the ugly, and the love you have for them.
There is something so special about having this unspoken bond with someone that lasts forever. All it takes is a glance down at your ink and a smile pops across your face because you think of how much that one person means to you and hopefully they do the same. The matching ones I do have I always looked down at and grin because I think of a memory about me and that person I have such a bond with. They are special and should be cherished.
Many hesitate when they consider getting similar tattoos. Now as I see it, family is forever, your friends may come and go but if you found the right ones, they will never leave, and well significant others…. that is where the caution should be raised due to the uncertainty of the future. It is all within your heart and if cherishing that special someone means getting a matching tattoo, then so be it.
