“Less is more” is the word on the street. Too much makeup, too many accessories, loud clothing, etc. will be sure to lose just about anyone’s attention. People simply don’t have any clue where to look first. The same applies to tattoos. Often, it’s the miniscule and subtle tats that have a great effect. They don’t immediately grab your attention when you meet someone, so the surprise is even greater when such a small tattoo peeks out from somewhere. Want to get a message across in a subtle way, then small tattoos are the way to go.
It’s often the ladies who opt for mini-tattoos. They are put on as a sort of accessory to accentuate individual elegance. The tattoos below are exquisite examples of this.
A small and girly bow on your hand will make for an incredibly elegant look, certainly since the bow was tatted with a dashed, thin line. You see these bows around quite often. Many girls or women opt for a pink bow so that it becomes even girlier or references Pink Ribbon, the organization that advocates for breast cancer awareness. See the last blog post for this on the Tattoo For A Week blog.
Key and keyhole. It would perhaps be even prettier if the key was reversed and the keyhole was placed on the chest, just above the heart. Then it’d really be “the key to your heart.”
A very subtle heart under the collarbone. It’ll be totally symbolic if your partner gets the same heart tattoo. OR, say one partner gets the heart, and the other gets a cupid arrow.
Think a traditional, diamond engagement ring is too cliche? Why not get a diamond tattoo on your ring finger then?! With these kinds of tattoos, you don’t even have to worry about the diamond falling out or ever losing the ring. Better yet, it just looks hella cool. So, a win-win!
“Alive”. A popular tattoo for anyone who’s gotten through a rough period in their lives or has beaten a deadly illness. The band/line is often made to look cornered, like the heart rate line on a heart monitor in the hospital.
In the world of temporary tattoos, subtle, small tattoos are a hit too! All sorts of brands offer tattoo packs, which allow you to buy a crap ton of mini-tattoos all at once, such as Tattoonie temporary tattoos for example:
They offer small tattoos in black as well as in color. The tattoos look very realistic. You have to stare at it for a while to even realize it’s a temporary tattoo. You can put on multiple at the same time, or do just one for a subtle effect.
By the way, Tattoonie also offers special temporary tattoos for the nails or cuticles:

Strepik is another player on the temporary tattoo market that realizes that bigger isn’t always better. They offer highly detailed temporary tattoos that follow the current fashion trends. They’re already a little bigger than the tattoos from the Tattoonie packs, for example, but they still add a subtle touch, certainly if put ’em someplace where they aren’t as visible. They have many birds in their collection, which has been a trend for many years in both the real and temporary tattoo scene.
Apart from Tattoonie and Strepik tattoos, Tattooforaweek also has a bundle of other small tattoos available for purchase. Check out these packs:
The “Little ones” pack.
Cool tags to put on your knuckles. Doesn’t matter, of course, if you want “cupcake” or “baby doll”; there’s something for everyone.
Colorful flowers, hearts, and butterflies… perfect for the summer months.
