Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland met just over a year ago in the Love Island 2016.

The couple, who are now engaged, bonded over many things in the villa, and their love of tattoos was of them.

Recently, the former scaffolder made a declaration of love to his bride-to-be by inking a portrait of her on his leg.

While the meaning of the huge tattoo is quite obvious, the couple have many more tattoos with secretive sentimental meanings.

Most iconically, Olivia, 23, has an underboob tattoo which she loves flaunting in crop tops and bikinis. 

The design looks like a lotus flower with lace and jewels hanging down.

The lotus flower tattoo has deep religious, mythological and cultural meanings, but in simple terms can symbolises purity and harmony.

She also has the Greek theatre mask of comedy and tragedy on her left hip, which depicts both a happy face mask and a sad face.

The image originates from the comic and tragic muses, Melpomene and Thalia, of ancient Greek dramas, and is suppose to symbolise the two human conditions, sorrow and happiness, this meaning translates when used for a tattoo design.

As well his tribute to Olivia, the MVMNT creator has plenty more symbolic ink designs too. 

Tuning into his spiritual side, Alex, 25 has a large Buddha inked across his chest.

As well as the obvious religious symbols, the particular Buddha image if choice (peaceful, eyes closes) represents transcendent over material matter and a meditative mind, much like Olivia's biggest design.

One of his other favourite tattoos includes a lion roaring on his hand. He previously told the Birmingham Mail: "My favourite tattoo is the lion that I got on my hand. My mum didn’t find out until she saw me on Love Island.

“On the last week she came in and the first thing she did was grab my hand and said ‘What have you done that for?’ and I knew I was in trouble.”

The design means strength and power, with the lion being the king of the jungle.

The duo have matching tattoos, too. 

Alex has a K and a heart simple for King Of Hearts, and Olivia has the Q alongside the symbol. Isn't that cute?
