Today, we choose to make a small discreet tattoo for a lot of different reasons.
For starters, there are those who have always wanted to try tattoos. You know them, it is they who hesitate, whenever the opportunity presents itself to them, to embark on such an adventure. The little tattoo woman or man is a way to take the decisive step. And that, without decorating his body with a too ostentatious image.
In some cases, we opt for a small original tattoo when we want to celebrate a special occasion. This is done sometimes to celebrate a more or less important event, sometimes to mark a very personal experience. Small tattoos are also a way to show your love or friendship. Because, yes, there are couples and friends who decide to express their attachment to each other.
In short, if you like small original tattoos, all occasions are good. We will have one in honor of an author and a book we loved, a film we loved or a cause that is close to our hearts.
Giving yourself a discreet little tattoo does not mean hiding!
Let’s say it right away; to afford a small tattoo original and discreet does not mean that we want to hide his body art. On the contrary, the choice of the location of the mini tattoo is usually done with a lot of attention. We therefore select body parts that remain visible and that will even attract attention on his discreet tattoo.
The arms, feet, fingers and shoulders are some of the most common choices for this type of small tattoo. So go for one of these parts of the body if you think that your little tattoo woman or man must be an integral part of your look. And, above all, if you want to show it to everyone!

We recently talked about the trend to replace her wedding or engagement wedding rings with a little original tattoo. Well, this trend is growing very fast! Today, it is no longer just for couples.
