"Twin Shoulder Tattoos" Are Gaining Popularity, and It's Easy to See Why
They say two is better than one, and when it comes to tattoos, we couldn't agree more. That's why we're obsessed with twin shoulder tattoos, or matching shoulder tats. This unique tattoo placement involves getting two designs, either matching or complementary, on each side of your shoulders. Not only does it allow you to show off more of your personality, but it gives you the opportunity to tell a story with your ink.
Twin shoulder tattoos are popular with floral designs, but there's really no limit to the style of ink that it works with. Bella Hadid, for example, recently got new tattoos from celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo of two different script writings on of her shoulders — one that reads "I love you" and the other "my love." Shoulder tattoos are great if you're looking for a design that can be hidden and discrete but also a little sexy. The location also lends itself to ink of all sizes, from big tattoos that run down the arm to tiny tattoos like Hadid's.
