Call them cheeky, the following fashion forward tattoo ideas are tiny and tiny, yet still sorta edgy. Truth be told, a tattoo doesn’t have to be large to have an impact. Small designs pack a big punch, especially when they are the only visible tattoo you have on your body.
Whether you are tossing around ideas for your first tattoo, or want a tattoo without desiring something larger in scale to express your point or interests, the following tiny tiny tattoo design ideas are perfectly happy being haute.
Hipster-friendly, runway approved, and not going anywhere anytime soon. Here are my suggestions. I’ll keep the list little.
Are you feeling bright? You can tattoo a few stars without commitment. A tiny tiny star can be placed on your collarbone, behind your ear, or perhaps even on your face. While face tattoos are the ultimate “I take my tattoos seriously” hot spot, small is still the norm here. Please consider face tattoos VERY carefully.
What’s not to love about a small little heart tattoo? Place this design on your wrist in either a single or multiple designs and you can officially wear your heart under your sleeve, and no one has to know.
I wish I may I wish I might; a moon tattoo is out of sight! When a crescent moon is placed on your inner wrist or collarbone, it’s small but can still hold plenty of meaning. Whether the moon represents your birth sign or mere fascination of the changing lunar phases, only a few shall be so lucky to see it.
Perhaps you desire a design idea that carries meaning but are afraid to commit to a relationship tattoo such as your lover’s name. Your worries are justified. Hopefully, you can spell their initials out into a three letter word and tattoo those instead. CAT, JET, BAT, etc.
Feather tattoos are currently one of the trendiest and most fashionable design ideas. They can also be made as small as a parakeet or as large as a parrot’s. A small, tiny, tiny feather tattoo can be placed right behind your ear. To add some dimension, consider coloring your feather in all the hues of the rainbow.
6. Infinity Symbol
It’s true that most tattoo artists are tired of doing infinity after infinity tattoos. It almost seems like this tattoo design trend is just going on, forever…
7. Music Notes
If the music is playing, it’s time to dance! Show your love for rhythm with a music note tattoo. Whether you opt for a clef design or an entire score, small and simple music note tattoos are beating with trend appeal.
8. Skeleton Key
If you’re a sucker for antiques, chances are you’ll love a skeleton key tattoo. Packing lots of character in a small design, you can wear a key on your inner wrist or even on the inside of your index finger.
Put a pretty ribbon or bow on it! A tasteful and dare I say elegant tattoo choice, a small bow placed on either the inner wrist or behind the ear is now considered a classy tattoo design. Who would have thought?
Quickly taking the lead in the realm of trendy tattoos, the almighty arrow hit the bull’s eye with a fashionable and discreet design idea. You can use multiple arrows and opt for more of a Native American design (team it up with a dream catcher) or let your arrow soar alone in its own direction.
11. Triangles and Shapes
It must have been Johnny Depp who started the small shape tattoo trend. He has three tiny rectangle tattoos on his finger. You can read all about them here. Even if Johnny did not start the trend, we will give him credit anyway. After all, it’s Johnny!
