What is tattoo Tuesday about?

August 21, 2018

“Some people are lucky enough to have found that special person they’ll spend the rest of their life with. And who wouldn’t want to celebrate that? There are many unconventional ways to tell the world “I’m in love!” Clothing is one form of expression, like couples who wear adorable matching sports jerseys or have spent the last 30 years coordinating outfits. Others take a more permanent approach to displaying their affection through creative couple tattoos.

Having matching or complementary tattoos with a romantic partner is far less temporary than wearing a ring. After all, it can’t (easily) be removed. So, there’s a lot of commitment involved with the decision to get inked in this way. But, it has a big upside—the tattooed beloveds will always carry a symbol of that relationship with them.

Many of those that take the leap sport clever designs. Designers Jessica Hische and Russ Maschmeyer have ink that corresponds to the other—and their professions. Before that, Hische was thinking about her tattoo and got Maschmeyer to go along with it with sound logic. “I convinced him it would be ‘conceptually stronger’ if I got the CMYK version of the same tattoo,” Hische told CreativeBloq. “He was a little freaked out about having a couple’s tattoo, but the more we talked about it the more it made sense. Russ got additive color (RGB) since his career passions were primarily screen-based; I got subtractive color (CMY) because I started my career in print design.” The result is a special tattoo that signifies their deep bond.”
