The rules were: 1) Each sibling would design the tattoo for the other. 2) The other sibling couldn't see it until it was on their body...forever.

Our first pair of siblings were Ben and Melissa. Ben had no tattoos because he'd never known what to get — so he was hoping his sister would be the perfect person to choose one for him.

Next up, we had Adriana and Claudia. They said they had worked hard to maintain a supportive and loving relationship, so they were really hoping this experiment didn't fuq that up.

Claudia chose a mountain range with trees, which symbolized a place they used to visit as children.

And Adriana chose a geometric flower based on flowers that were planted outside their childhood home.

For Melissa, Ben picked a shared sentiment within their family, which was the nickname they had for themselves: "Flavor wavelength."

And Melissa picked Ben's favorite thing: full moons. Melissa said whenever there was a full moon they would text each other, so it's something that has kept them connected regardless of distance.

After everyone chose their tats, it was time to get started. And when the ~pain~ started, it brought out the evil side in some of the siblings...

Claudia and Adriana both loved each other's choices, and were really glad they both chose a memory from their childhood.

And Ben and Melissa were so excited to have a small reminder of their family on their bodies.

Turns out, no one picks a better tat that your own flesh 'n' blood.
