The Smaller The Tattoo, The Less You’ll Regret It (45 Cute Tiny Tattoo Ideas)

If you’ve been looking for tattoo ideas, there are plenty of examples out there, but general tattoo ideas are a bit different from first tattoo ideas.

If you’re getting your first tattoo, you might not be ready to commit to something huge that can’t be disguised or hidden. For small tattoo ideas, you’ve come to the right place.

For a first tattoo, you want a small tattoo. Something your hair or a discreet piece of jewelry or a sock can cover.

This is something you’re going to live with for the rest of your life and you need to figure out of you even like having a tattoo before going big and complicated.

There are lots of small simple designs that are already popular and in the wheelhouse of most professional tattoo artists. Many of them can be adjusted to fit your own interests or aesthetics, but below are a bunch of jumping-off points for starting a tattoo adventure.

And when you’re ready for the full sleeves, all in color, you’ll still look back fondly at that tiny heart on your ankle. If you can see it.
