Tattoos are forever. This is the reason that couple tattoos are such a crazy huge risk. True love SHOULD last forever, but let's face it—it doesn't always hapen that way. People break up, things change, and suddenly you are stuck with some silly ink you got with someone you're no longer on speaking terms with. But some couples DO get it right. They find someone who's totally compatible, and they grow old together like two peas in a pod.
