Although the tepid temperatures of Spring thus far might not feel like it, bare leg, t-shirt and bikini season are on their way, and things are about to get a lot more skimpy as we manifest a long, hot summer of sun. If you’re seeking a way to add a little bit of *spice* to your look in 2022 (and forever, actually), a tiny tattoo might be just the fresh addition you’re after to switch things up in a subtle yet adorable way, whether your inking has a deeper, personal meaning or simply looks cute AF.
The benefit of such small designs means they’re perfect for tattoo newbies worried about commitment, or for those with jobs that mean larger, more visible designs are a no, no, and can be placed in more hideable areas such as collarbones, hips, and the inside of your arm for a hint of body art not visible to everyone. Everyone from Bella Hadid, Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Chamberlain and Kaia Gerber are fans of the humble tiny tattoo, and combined with the scrapbook tattoo trend we saw emerge last year, we have the perfect style formula to pop your ink cherry.
