You don’t have to have a big tattoo to show you care. Maybe try a small tattoo like the black outline heart featured. Each friend can have this tattoo as it will suit everyone and it is subtle. A design like this is great as a first tattoo too. You could even have some color added to the heart.
A meaningful quote always makes a great tattoo. Here we have two best friends that each have half a quote tattooed. It reads “Together forever, never apart. Maybe in distance but not in heart”. This is a beautiful quote that shows they will always be friends no matter what.
