Whether they’re sweet and sentimental or fun and playful, BFF tattoos should be something meaningful to the two of you that also suits your style.

Lots of celebrities have been known to hop aboard the matching friend tattoos train.

Back in 2015, model Hailey Bieber and her cousin, Ireland Baldwin, got matching finger tattoos of their famous family name.
