We love the creative world of tattoos, and the tiny tattoo trends doing the rounds have us all kinds of inspired…

Tattoos are nothing new, but they most certainly are becoming a more and more widely accepted and common form of self-expression, and the new wave of tiny tattoos has us pretty inspired. While there most definitely aren’t any rules when it comes to what you get and where you get it – these are super personal, after all – these are some of the current tiny tattoo trends that we’re loving…

Fewer things are more dainty or feminine than a pretty little flower, so it’s no surprise that this is a huge tiny tattoo trend. While roses are certainly a popular choice, the options really are endless, so be sure to pick your favourite flower rather than simply going with the one you think is most trendy!

A phrase, name, place or simple word that really resonates with you may make the perfect tiny tattoo. While all tattoos are pretty personal in one way or another, this type can take it to a whole other level, which is why they are often placed in a spot that you can often catch a glimpse of it for that little reminder you might need.

Pretty handy

Your hands make the perfect canvas for tint tattoos since your fingers provide a smaller surface, so this could be the perfect chance to express yourself. We love the quirky, fun little pieces of art being opted for here, and we say the quirkier, the better! 

Just a little something


Modern objects are a huge trend here. Whether they were selected randomly, ironically or from a place of love, this is where you get to really express yourself. From a fluffy cloud to a coffee mug, nothing is off the radar for this one, so have yourself a little bit of fun.

Ear candy

While it is true that piercings have taken off this year, and the ear is getting adorned with plenty of pretty jewels. But it doesn’t stop there – why not decorate your ear with a little bit of ink, too?

Eat it!

Whether you’re a full-blown foodie or just can’t get enough avo (who can, right?!), one of the more fun trends of tiny tattoos involves yummy food. It could be done ironically, to remind yourself of the best pizza slice you ever ate or to pay homage to a loved one, so get picking!

A little bit of love
