Mini tattoos look extremely cool and can be easily hidden in case of emergency. No wonder they are more popular than ever before. Various celebrities also present their micro tattoos on Instagram all the time. Supermodel Hailey Baldwin even has 16 of them.
However, precisely because these tattoos are so small, there are a few things to keep in mind. Therefore, here are 6 things you should know before getting a tattoo!
#1 Small tattoos need special care
Mini tattoos are actually as delicate as they look. Therefore, you should be particularly careful with a freshly stung micro tattoo. Scratching the scab on a normal tattoo is already dangerous and can lead to fading of the color or scarring. With such fine lines, however, it can immediately lead to the fact that they disappear partially or completely.
#2 Every tattoo is unique
If you’re considering getting a tattoo with your BFF, be warned: no two tattoos will ever look alike. This is true for any tattoo, of course, but it is with particularly small designs or fine lines that slight differences are most noticeable.
#3 Mistakes happen
Tattoos are man-made little works of art – and people make mistakes. With filigree tattoos, small blemishes are naturally more noticeable. It is even more important to find a tattoo artist who knows his craft and whom you can trust.
#4 Not every tattoo artist does small tattoos
This brings us to the next topic, because not every tattoo artist also stabs small tattoos. Many tattoo artists have their specialty and it is advisable to go to a tattoo artist who specializes in what you want to have. A tattoo artist, who usually engraves large motifs, might even be persuaded to give you a micro tattoo, but whether you will be satisfied with the result is another question. We advise you not to take your chances.

#5 Small tattoos fade faster
Once ink enters the skin, our bodies do everything they can to get rid of it. That’s why tattoos fade over time, and unfortunately, that process is faster for particularly intricate tattoos than it is for larger tattoos – simply because less ink is used.
