134 Simple Small Tattoo Ideas You’ll Want To Have Inked

Find your small tattoo idea with inspiration from these amazing Instagram artists. Ink Yourself With These Simple Small Tattoos.

The smallest tattoos are the most delicate (and discrete) additions to your ink collection, not to mention the prettiest. Small tattoos are the hottest tattoo trend of 2022, whether they are hidden on your wrist, etched on your elbow, or inked on your ribs.

‘I really like small tattoos because they’re a bit easier to commit too – they’re really charming and feel like jewellery,’ says the tattoo artist behind Ariana’s moon hand, Mira Mariah aka GirlKnewYork.

‘A small tattoo can feel like an accessory. I like little words if they’re cheeky, like a little “please” and “thank you”. There are a lot of sparkles, stars, and little eyes that I do. That would be so fun to do. I’d love to do a tiny tiger head. The partnership I’ve done with Fresh has been extremely important to me because I have a big goal of bringing tattooing to beauty and fashion.

Take some inspiration from these amazing Instagram tattoo artists before you start your own.

Small Tattoo Ideas For Men and Women

In addition to being adorable and small, they’re also super easy to hide (think: hips, collarbones, behind the ear), if that’s your thing.

Additionally, they’re less expensive than really intricate designs, and they’re a great first tattoo if you’re intimidated by the process (although it’s still worth remembering that small tattoos are just as permanent as larger ones, so you’ve got to make sure you like it).

There is no need for tattoos to be large in order to make an impact. Today, women are more likely to get smaller tattoos. Dainty body art can appear more elegant than oversized pieces or full sleeves because it appears more proportionate. It is also easy to cover small ink marks with clothing. The fact that they are smaller doesn’t make them any less meaningful.

Getting started on a small tattoo can be challenging, but we have the best ideas for you. Consider where you would like your tattoo to be placed first. It’s most common to get tattoos on your fingers, ankles, and wrists – they’re subtle but noticeable.

These adorable mini tattoos feature an array of abstract, typographic, and illustrative designs (without all that scary stuff attached) whether you’re searching for a deep, spiritual symbol, or looking for something colorful.
