Best Friend Tattoos || Each With Its Own Meaning
As the saying goes:
“ God made us best friends because he knew neither of our mothers would’ve been able to handle us together as sisters.”
A best friend is probably closer to you than a sister. You share everything with me, half the things that happen to you happen while you’re with them.
You have the most memories with your best friend. They are that anchor that you need in your life. You trust them like you don’t trust anyone, and they know that you have their back and vice versa.
It’s a bond that goes so deep and so strong. Best friends are your sanity even in the darkest of times. So why don’t we celebrate and symbolize this relationship? And how do you do it?
