As someone that loves art in pretty much every form it comes in (yes, sometimes even poetry. Rarely, but it still happens.), I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I love tattoos. Like, seriously adore them. Probably obsessively. I’m part of a narcissistic generation (I mean, I write about my life and actually expect people to care; what does that say about me? That I’m great. Oh, was I meant to let you answer that?) but my camera roll isn’t full of selfies; it’s full of Pinterest and Tumblr screenshots.
Now, I don’t really blame myself for this addiction. My parents, the irresponsible human beings that they are, have nurtured this love – and even booked me a tattoo on the day of my 18th birthday. Yes, not even a full 24 hours after it’s legal they strapped me to a chair to get inked.
Anyways, this looming deadline (can you tell I’m excited? I know my enthusiasm is overwhelming, but don’t worry – it is genuine and not just for the views. We keep it authentic here.) meant that I had to decide on a first tattoo. Which is hard because you have to factor in things like size, position, whether you want shading or not – oh, and whether or not you can even make it through the tattoo or not. Yes, I would personally recommend going small on your first tattoo, just so that if you really can’t handle the pain you aren’t left with half a tattoo you can’t get completed because you’re pathetic. Kidding. Kind of.
So today I bring to you 30 cute and teeny tiny tattoos that probably won’t take more than 20 minutes to get done (that, by the way, was a completely unreferenced claim and is likely to be completely wrong. Such is life.). So, if you want to tap out on your first go round, you won’t be permanently stuck with disgusting malformed ink. Yay.
