These adorable small tattoo ideas are cute and pretty enough to be noticed despite its size. The good thing about these small tattoos is that you can put them anywhere and still stir up conversations about it. I remember when I got my first tattoo, it was a 3×3 size Swedish swastika and I have it on my nape. People are always curious about it and would often ask me what other tattoos do I have.
Symbols are quite popular for small tattoos but you can still get other designs and keep it small despite whatever it is, like the tiger for example. You may often see big tiger tattoos, but you can still have it small and still look superb as long as the design or the tattoo artist will do a great job.
