Growing up with a sister is an experience that you can only truly understand if you did it yourself. When you have a sister, you always have someone to hang out with…or argue with, depending on the day.
But in many cases, as the two of you grow older, your relationship matures and you find yourself with a best friend who’s known you for pretty much your whole life.
And in that case, you might want to get a tattoo to document your very special bond.
Here are 20 sister tattoos that perfectly capture what it’s like to have a sister.
She knows all your inside jokes, embarrassing stories, and silly nicknames. In other words, she’s your other half. Why not get a tattoo to show that?
Here’s another tattoo that’s perfect for commemorating the thousands of pinky swears you made each other participate in.

This is perfect for those times you forget whether you’re the older sister or the younger sister. Just take a quick glance down at your wrist for the reminder.
You can even add the birth years if you want to get extra fancy.
I love how this one shows both the similarities and differences between the two sisters.

Who doesn’t love adorable elephants?
This one also shows the dynamic of the younger sister following her older sister’s footsteps.
