Small Details

These little tattoos are really popular at the moment and I love the simplicity of them. I also think if you get a small tattoo that has a deeper meaning, maybe one only you know but nobody else does from looking at it, then it is super special. For example, I really want to get a small heart, similar to the one featured in its placement and design, for my Auntie who passed in 2004.


Flowers are totally classic tattoos but I love the different designs that incorporate flowers. Honestly, I never thought much of flower tattoos until I recently noticed my Pinterest board was covered in these designs! I have included small ones, ones with colour and bigger designs to give an idea of how you can use flowers as a brilliant tattoo piece. I particularly love the idea of having your own or someone elses favourite flowers tattooed.


Quote tattoos are another classic but I feel like I don’t see them that frequently anymore. Lyrics from songs, favourite book quotes, there are so many different types of word related tattoos that you can get. I love the simple “Oh Yes I Can” motivational pieces to quotes that totally resonate with you – there is such a great mix.


In terms of artistic and unique tattoo pieces, there are hundreds of thousands that you can pick from. I have included a few of my favourite designs and styles at the moment to give you an idea or inspire you. Dot work tattoos are, in my opinion, totally gorgeous and look amazing; as well as geometric ones.

Finally, I might as well showcase the one tattoo that I currently have (booking others at the moment though!). I got this tattoo when I was 18, on my 18th birthday in fact, and the MCMLVII is the birth year of my mum. I got it tattooed on my ribs because I quite like having tattoos to myself.


Do you have any tattoos? What designs do you love?

    • August 2, 2017 / 9:56 pm

    Ugh this post makes me want to book another tattoo appointment! I have 6 roughly. One goes from my clavicle to almost my elbow. I love all of theses

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:18 pm

      Wow that sounds amazing! Sorry for fueling the addiction, hehe! xx

  15. August 1, 2017 / 1:01 am

    I love these tattoos. I wish I could show you this awesome moon design that’s very similar to the geometric designs. I generally gravitate toward literary quotes because I’m a huge book nerd.

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:20 pm

      I love literary quotes too! (I’m a lit student), I think one day I will find one that I love enough to get as a tattoo. Ohhh, if you ever get the time, please email me a photo, I would love to see it! xx

  16. August 1, 2017 / 5:13 am

    Yes! I can relate I am obsessed over tats but to sissy to get one. Lol

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:19 pm

      I was terrified! Honestly, when you psych yourself up for the absolute worst you are only ever surprised when it isn’t as bad! xx

      • August 3, 2017 / 12:18 am

        I will talk myself into one before too long lol

  17. August 1, 2017 / 5:33 am

    I want one SO bad, but don’t think I’ll get one (anytime soon) because I’m too scared. These are all dainty and cute!

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:20 pm

      Honestly, I was petrified! When you expect the worst pain imaginable, it is only ever better than what you think – I promise you that 🙂 xxx

  18. August 1, 2017 / 6:01 am

    Oooo love the second one under artistic!!! ❤️🐾

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:21 pm

      I love the really artistic ones, they’re incredible! xxx

  19. August 1, 2017 / 10:01 am

    I love the small simplistic tattoos, they are really sweet. I would love to get the quote tattoo and the roman numeral one day. Love the post.❤️

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:22 pm

      Thank you so much! I love how much people like the small ones, it’s sweet that there can be so much meaning in something so dainty and simple I think xx

  20. August 2, 2017 / 4:35 am

    I am so happy I stumbled upon your blog! I am loving your posts! I love American Traditional tattoos. I also really love spine tattoos, I think they are so sexy and feminine! Xo

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:26 pm

      Oh my god yes, I hadn’t thought of these! Thank you so so much for stopping by xxx

  21. August 2, 2017 / 1:03 pm

    Being a heavily tattooed person myself I do love a Pinterest browse for some inspiration! I currently have 8 and I’m only 19! I love neo traditional and traditional style of tattooing bold and bright! ♥️

  22. August 2, 2017 / 7:11 pm

    I would never get a tattoo but some of these look so cute. I love the small detail ones they seem so simple and pretty.

  23. August 2, 2017 / 7:55 pm

    Love love love all of these tattoos. My tattoo board on Pinterest is very similar!! They’re all amazing. I have a tattoo on the back of my arm which says ‘grandma’ – in memory of her – it’s her own handwriting too. Love the idea of your tattoo. Great post! x

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:33 pm

      Oh I love that, that is so sweet! What a perfect tattoo! xxx

  24. August 2, 2017 / 8:48 pm

    Totally in love with all of the small ones!😍

  25. August 2, 2017 / 9:58 pm

    We have such similar tattoo tastes! I have so many of these already saved on my phone haha! xx

    • August 2, 2017 / 10:37 pm

      Really?! That is so cool and weird! Hahah! xx

  26. August 3, 2017 / 6:57 am

    Lol great post! I like the origami fox…I need to get another tattoo as a cover up for this rubbish one I have on my shoulder…when I get the nerve! 😱😱😱xxx

    • August 3, 2017 / 10:27 pm

      I loved that one! ohhh really? I hope you find something you love soon! xx

  27. August 3, 2017 / 7:47 am

    Great post! I definitely feel the smaller simpler ones in the first set. I currently have a one-line elephant and seahorse on my ankles for my parents and i’m definitely booking one coming up soon for my birthday! Your tat is beautiful too! xx

    • August 3, 2017 / 10:38 pm

      Oh that sounds absolutely amazing, I love that!
      Thank you so much 🙂 xxx

  28. August 3, 2017 / 3:43 pm

    Okay fine, I really really want a tattoo now.
    Damn 😀
    I’d love to have a wave tattoo and also one that I will draw on my own 🙂

    • August 3, 2017 / 10:41 pm

      Eeeek, apologies! Hehe, so glad you liked it xx

      • August 4, 2017 / 9:58 am

        Haha 😀 Hey did it hurt when you got inked on your ribs???

  29. August 3, 2017 / 5:54 pm

    I love simple tattoos 😍 I’ve got an outline of a heart on my ankle and I’m looking at getting another outline of something on my side like you! Does it really hurt on your ribs?! X

    • August 3, 2017 / 7:48 pm

      Ohh that sounds so cute! It just felt like it was vibrating through my bone… weird I know! Honestly, if you got your ankle tattooed you’ll be more than fine! xxx

      • August 3, 2017 / 8:58 pm

        I might pluck up the courage to get it done then! Thank you lovey! Xxx

  30. August 4, 2017 / 8:37 am

    I LOVE YOUR TATTOO! I’m a fellow strapped-into-the-chair-at-18 😂xx

    • August 5, 2017 / 3:12 pm

      Thank you so much!! Really!? That’s so cool! What did you get!? Xxx

      • August 5, 2017 / 5:04 pm

        It’s really hard to explain, it’s a big floral design basically xD xx

  31. August 5, 2017 / 11:54 am

    I love the little tattoos as well. They look really cute and sweet. The best option for people who are not really great at dealing with pain.

    • August 5, 2017 / 3:17 pm

      That’s such a good point! Thanks for stopping by xxx

  32. August 12, 2017 / 9:24 pm
