There are definitely different ways to commemorate the special bonds we share with our loved ones, may they our family, friends, or significant other. From simply spending time and creating unforgettable memories together to having “twinning” clothes and stuff, there are some who hopped onto the trend and chose to get matching tattoos – just like the celebrities listed in this Kapamilya Snaps feature.
RK Bagatsing and Jane Oineza
From being co-stars in the 2018 afternoon series Precious Hearts Romance Presents Araw Gabi, RK and Jane indeed surprised everyone when they announced their relationship in 2021 through a TikTok video. Since then, they’ve been winning their shippers over with the sweetness that exude in their Instagram posts.
But we were surely thrilled the most when they posted pics of their adorable and simple tiny couple tattoo on Christmas Day of 2021. They got those inked on their left pinky fingers, with Jane having two dots, while he has a curved line. These may look simple individually, but they actually form a smiley face when combined.
When asked about the story behind it, the actress disclosed during the virtual media conference for the digital anthology series “Click, Like, Share’ in 2022 that it was actually an impulsive decision. She explained, “Hindi kumpleto ‘yong smiley 'pag wala siya. Nasa kanya ‘yong smile, so 'pag magkasama kami, it's a smiley face. Napaka-small but meaningful—and I'm happy. It's cute.”
Heaven Peralejo and Mommy Luanne
Ever since her Pinoy Big Brother days, we already know how deep and tight the bond of Heaven is with her Mommy Luanne. It can be recalled that she was her reason of joining, and eventually voluntarily exiting the competition in order to grant her wish to see her first after her operation when she was still battling cancer. And going through their Instagram posts, we could see snaps of them enjoying each other’s company, which proves that they’re besties, too!
In 2019, the The Iron Heart actress shared that she got one of the most delighting surprises of her life when her Mama didn’t simply agree for her to get her first tattoo, but also had hers. They got matching two swallow birds inked on their right outer wrists, which, according to her, symbolize “a lot for us especially our love for travelling, there were a lot of times when we were lost commuting but we didn’t care because we knew that as long as we’re together we can face it with a brave heart similar to how we face our daily battles in our lives.”
Kyle Echarri and brother Nico
Avid fans of Kyle certainly know how much love and support he has for his younger sister Isabella, which he’s able to display through their media appearances together and his posts on social media. And he’s able to further show his love for her when he decided to get inked with a red heart drawn by Isabella on his right inner wrist, with their eldest brother Nico doing the same on his left hand.
Kaye Abad and husband Paul Jake Castillo
Six years after tying the knot in 2016, Kaye and and husband Paul Jake agreed to get a couple tattoo that represented not only their love for each other, but for their two sons Joaquin and Iñigo as well. In July 2022, they documented through a vlog their trip to a tattoo shop in Cebu and the amusing process that they went through in deciding what design to have. In the end, they opted to have four dots inked on their lower right arms, one for each member.
Angelica Panganiban, Bela Padilla, and Kim Chiu
The friendship of Angelica, Bela, and Kim, a.k.a. “AngBeKi,” is undoubtedly one of the coolest at present. According to them, their unexpected yet admirable bond blossomed when they all attended the same birthday party.
While others choose to have friendship bracelets, the trio agreed to have a simple and small black circle tattoo on their left side wrists in February 2019. The It’s Showtime host posted about it on her IG and wrote in the caption: “we may not see each other most of the time but we always have each other’s back!!!”
Nadine Lustre and her girl friends
Aside from her fashion moments and swimsuit photos, we also find Nadine’s body arts truly stunning, right? But did you know that one of her aesthetic tattoos matches with three of her BFFs?
In 2018, she, Kiana Valenciano, Andrea Luis, and Lauren Reid got delicate sparkle outlines on their side wrists. Andrea posted an adorable photo of them flexing their identical tatts and wrote in the caption: “Find people in your life who bring out the sparkle in you. Loved ones, someone new, friends who become family, best friends who become sisters. Be true to yourself and to who you are and anything will be possible. Cliché maybe, but don’t let anybody ever dull your sparkle.”
Kapamilya, which of these matching tattoos are you likely to get with your family, friends, or significant other?
