The tiny tattoo trend has been en vogue in recent years, and for good reason. Aside from being not too huge of a commitment, the tiny tattoo is also delicate and pretty. It can be meaningful or it can be silly, and it doesn’t matter either way because it’s tiny!
Celebrities are not immune to the appeal of the tiny tattoo. Here are 30 of our favorites, and the meanings behind them.
30. Drew Barrymore’s Wrist Ink:
Drew Barrymore’s inner wrist tattoo is in honor of her daughters, Olive and Frankie. So cute!
29. Ariel Winter’s Hip Initials:
The initials belong to Winters’ five nieces and nephews.
28. Lea Michele’s Finger Coffee-Cup:
Michele’s most recent tiny tattoo is an emotional tribute to her late grandmother, who made the actress her very first cup of coffee.
“I lost my beautiful grandma this week.. She wasn’t your typical grandma. She gave me my first cup of coffee when I was 8 years old. She said something inappropriate to every boyfriend I’ve ever had. She never made pie or knit me a sweater. But she was my grandma and I loved her… More than anything.. I love you Grandma. ❤️ ” wrote Michele.
27. Kylie Jenner’s Tiny Red Heart:
The first of the youngest KarJenner’s four tiny tattoos debuted at her eighteenth birthday party back in August 2015.
26. Simone Biles’ Olympics Rings:
Simone Biles’s first ever tattoo was a fitting one: A minimalist depiction of the Olympic rings. Considering how many medals she is in possession of—the most world medals in U.S. history (14!!!) and the most world championships gold medals of any female gymnast (10!!!), we’d say she earned it.
25. Mandy Moore’s Mt. Kilimanjaro:
According to her Instagram, Moore had dreamt of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro since she turned 18. Last April, she finally made it happen— and commemorated the trip with a tattoo from tattoo artist Daniel Winter.
24. Hilary Duff’s ‘Fake Fountain’ In Tribute To Bette Davis:
Duff’s black-and-white celeb favorite Dr.Woo tattoo reads “Take Fountain”—Fountain Avenue being a street in Los Angeles. Legendary actress Bette Davis is said to have given this “tip” during an interview with Johnny Carson when asked what advice actresses aiming to break into Hollywood should follow.
Fountain Avenue is generally believed to be the more efficient route to travel though Los Angeles to avoid traffic, rather than taking Santa Monica and Sunset Boulevards.
23. Cara Delevigne’s Hand Snake:
Delevigne’s slithers from the edge of her palm to her middle finger, and the word feral appears at the end of the snake’s tail. Delevigne told The Sun that “…it’s about reinvention, shedding of old skin, new beginnings, new life.” Hell ya!
22. Shay Mitchell’s Honey:
Another tattoo artist celeb fave, Jon Boy, inked the word “honey” in all caps on Mitchell’s hand. No explanation given.
