Tattoos are an artform and, if anyone says otherwise, we’ll have NYC guru and celebrity fave JonBoy ink them until they admit it (sorry, bit violent). 
Not everyone’s jobs allow them to have sprawling sleeves of coloured ink – and not everyone is brave enough to go all in when it comes to body art – which is why there’s such a massive market for the minimalist-chic tattoo.
They’re the teeny, tiny ones not even your mum would arch up about because she’d probably be so grateful you got something easy to cover up; the impossibly delicate, barely-there type favoured by the likes of Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Lara Bingle; the kind you can’t stop double-tapping on Instagram.

Here’s a collection of our 44 faves, just in case you need some inspiring.
