Most people, when they think about their first tattoo, first start with a small tattoo design that can be placed in an inconspicuous place on the body. Not everyone wants their first body art to be noticeable, because it’s something new for them, and they’re not so sure what family, friends or other will people say. Thus, a hummingbird tattoo is very popular as the first body art.
Some of the best places on the body for a small tattoo design are on the feet, ankles, back and neck. Small tattoos are very popular. Did you know that 25% of the population has some form of body art? That is 1 in every 4 people! With so many small tattoos, how do you decide what is right for you?
Small foot tattoos are very often a striking tattoo design. Designs that are used for feet tattoos are usually small, simple designs, but some can be quite articulate. Tattoos can be very personal and can reflect the different aspects of a person’s personality. People often choose small tattoos, which are very easy to hide so they will not cause problems at work, for example. The area available for body art on the foot is relatively small, so it is important to choose a small design, such as a hummingbird tattoo. If you want to have an elaborate foot tattoo design, and are not very concerned about the visibility, you can start at your foot and go all the way up your leg to your waist. Hummingbird tattoos with vines and flowers would be a great design.
Small ankle tattoos are usually the first choice for women and girls. Many women choose the ankle initially due to the fact that the area can easily be shown or covered. Feet and ankles are also incredibly attractive body parts to men. Many men are already interested in a woman’s leg, and the natural progression is to also look at the ankles and feet.
Another reason why many women and girls select the ankles is they do not want tattoos that are very large and visible. Ankles, of course, are a relatively small part of the body, so the tattoo that you do choose will have to be of equal size. A Hummingbird tattoo is already a great small tattoo design and would fit in this place perfectly.
Small lower back tattoos (often called “tramp stamps”) are more common among women. The lower back is a sexual and sensual area and many people love that you can only see a small glimpse of the body art at times and the full tattoo when it is exposed. Although Hummingbird tattoos are very popular, there are such things as flowers, dragons, tribal, and other characters that are also very popular when it comes to small tattoos.
Small back of the neck tattoos are often used to show how you think, your personality, your culture and your own style. Having a tattoo on the back of the neck is one of the best places for sporting small, simple tattoos. Generally, neck tattoos are worn by both men and women; however, small, simple tattoos may look better on women. For men, it is usually a good idea to get a larger tattoo or combine the neck design with a shoulder or back tattoo to create a real intricate design. However, there are some men who simply prefer to wear a simple tattoo on their neck.. An example might be a Celtic cross or a Chinese symbol of some kind.
It is also important when choosing a small tattoo to really think a little while to figure out the design you want and like. Do not just go to the local store, and get some Tattoo Flash, which is on their wall. If it does not really talk to you, and if you do not feel that deep connection to it, clearly it is not the small tattoo design for you. Within a few years or so, you may not be so happy with the body art and regret getting it. So, instead of going to the tattoo shop to choose a design, spend some time and think about some of the designs that speak to you. There are hundreds and thousands of small tattoo design ideas that can be found online for free.
