Tattoos come in a variety of designs, from intricate and complex, to small and cute. A tattoo does not have to be very large in order to draw attention. Sometimes, a small tattoo speaks louder than even a big one can, such as a tiny heart tattoo on the wrist. Cool Small Tattoos express the magic of symbols and meanings in beautiful designs.
Small tattoo designs for men and women can be inked in a single color. These small tattoos usually have a shaded design to give them a unique look. To keep the style simple and unadorned, many small tattoos just use the basic outline as the design. Take a small star and a heart, inked in outlines on the wrist, as an example. Small tattoos are often filled in with different colors, though the smaller the tattoo, the fewer the number of colors, as tattoo artists may find it difficult to ink very tiny multicolored designs. From a pattern of stars, to rabbits nose to nose, to geometrical motifs, to baby footprints, many themes feature in small tattoo designs. A small and attractive tattoo can be inked in many places to create a distinctive look. The neck, wrist, foot and upper back are great places for small tattoos.
