The art of tattooing has been around for a long, long time. Now it is an extremely edgy trend. Tattoos today mean a lot more than something you get while drunk or for fun.
They have a special meaning for every person that chooses to get inked because this peace of art is something they will carry their whole life. Also, just because a tattoo is small doesn’t mean it is not as meaningful as a full body tatt.
Good things come in small packages. Check out these tattoos below and get inspired.
