Getting a tattoo is a big decision - and getting a couple's tattoo is an even bigger one. You've got to consider the design, the placement, and whether or not you think you're actually going to stick around with your tattoo twin for the rest of your lives.

If you think all of that through and you're happy to go ahead, you still need to consider your artist, how much money you're willing to blow on it, and whether or not you're going to commit to all the aftercare and whatnot.

And even then, you've got to be wary of the fact that something could go wrong; and, if it does, you're going to be stuck with it for the rest of your life (or at least until you pay a ton of money to either get it covered up or removed).

Basically, what I'm saying is, it's a fairly big risk.

But that didn't stop one Disney-loving couple, who thought it could be a good idea to seal their relationship with two iconic images from Beauty and the Beast: the bell jar and the rose. Both of the Disney fans got the ink on their upper arm, just above the inside elbow (so it's quite clearly visible in a short-sleeved shirt), with the woman opting for the rose and the guy getting the jar.

When you think about it, the imagery is a pretty good choice for a couple's tattoo. In the story, the rose in the jar is supposed to represent true love - and the story is a great metaphor for love transcending all boundaries. Plus, most people are familiar with the reference, so most people would understand what they were looking at if they saw the couple together.

Unfortunately, one of the other important things you need to consider when getting a tattoo with someone else is whether or not it will work as a standalone piece. And that's something this couple clearly didn't do.

The rose is alright - it's not the best, but it's obvious what it's supposed to be - but the jar... well, some people thought it looked like something else.

 

The tattoo was posted on reddit under the title, "Really thought this was a condom for a second" - and it's not difficult to see why. Alongside the rose, it just about passes for a bell jar. However, on its own, it looks more like a half-unrolled rubber with a couple of beans in the middle of it and some floating glitter dancing around the outside.

"The rose is OK. Its just your basic rose. The bell Jar does look like a condom or a Taco Bell bell," said one commenter.

"I don't know," wrote another. "From a certain angle the rose looks a bit like a gummy bear on a stick to me which I find amusing. Petals are kind of wilting there."

Well, I guess if the couple are happy with their tats then there's no big issue here. However, if that guy keeps getting strange looks every time he leaves the house in a tank top, he might want to consider getting a coverup.
