Getting a tattoo is not an easy decision. First, you have to decide which one you want to get. In the array of choices and ideas, it is so hard to choose a single one. Ladies usually opt for small and cute tattoos that have some kind of meaning for them. For all the girly girls out there who need inspiration on what to get inked on their wrists, we have some overly pretty ideas. These are all simple, but gorgeous tattoos you will swoon over all day long.
Trends, trends, trends – we can’t get enough of them. Whether is a brand new idea or a comeback from the past decades, fashion obsessives know that the urge to follow the latest trends is a fun thing to do. Of course, you shouldn’t lose yourself in the sea of trends. But the cuticle tattoos that took over Instagram lately can only do good to your style. So, we don’t have had a single argument against these cute little tattoos. This video has 7 of the cutest cuticle tattoos out there that might convince you to test drive this trend.
One of the reasons why we fell for this trend is because everyone can rock it. Rihanna is the queen of bold trends that not many would dare to try. But even the Barbadian singer and style icon is addicted to cuticle tattoos. She was one of the first who sparked this possibly painful trend. We are going to be completely honest, if you want your cuticle tattoos to stay forever, you might experience some pain. Anyway, if you just want to temporary upgrade your manicure, you can get cuticle tattoo nail art stickers. So, you don’t have to be Rihanna to pull this trend off.
As you can see in the video, you don’t have to go with a tattoo on every finger. For a toned-down effect, you can only tattoo one or few fingers. You can also take things in another direction and flaunt something unique and innovative. We love the Saturn-inspired cuticle tattoo seen in the video. This person drew Saturn and six tiny dots on her cuticles. The final result is insanely Instagrammable.
If you are into geometric shapes, you can flaunt the open triangle cuticle tattoos that look super sharp. Pair them with manicures in the similar aesthetic for even bolder effect.
Since we are only days away from the official holiday season a gold cuticle tattoo is what you need to round up your festive looks. In the video, we have the adorable gold bow tattoos paired with red nail polish. Red is the ultimate festive color, so feel free to copy this entire combo right away. Consider this is a last-minute holiday mani that you can do at home. No need to see your nail lady, just stick cuticle tattoo stickers and paint your nails in red.
Whether you want to keep it forever or just give it a try, the cuticle nail trend will for sure upgrade the way you take photos of yourself. Admit it – you would show it off on every Instagram snap.
The creativity of the makeup artists does not know any limits. Most of us haven’t thought about temporary tattoos since our childhood. But the restless artists found a way to implement them into their makeup looks. These tiny details will give a whole new dimension to your makeup look, especially if you are feeling bold.
Forget about having the perfect eyeliner or perfectly shaped eyebrows. Some makeup artists even tried this trend all over their brows and it looks fantastic.
The online store Violent Lips is the place where you can find a huge variety of these temporary tattoos. Although they were made to be used on the lips, you can place them anywhere on your face. Tattify.com and Tattly.com are two other online sites that offer thousands of these temporary inks in different colors, shapes, and sizes.
After you choose your favorite one, it’s time to create the look. In order to transfer the tattoo on your lips, you need to have a proper lipstick as a base. The professional makeup artist Giselle Ali already tried this trend. She recommends a matte liquid lipstick so that you can achieve the best possible effect.
“It’s important to use a lipstick that will dry matte as the transfer will need an oil-free surface to stick to.’- Giselle says for Allure.
When the base lipstick is completely dry you can go ahead and place the paper with the tattoo wherever you want it to be. Then you have to wet the paper with any makeup brush or a sponge. The process is very simple, and the end result is amazing. Many of the makeup bloggers decided to top their lips with a clear lip gloss for an eye-catching finish. Others experimented with ombre lips which also looks amazing.
The procedure is pretty much the same for the eyes (or any other part of the face). Place the tattoo, wet it and your daring look is ready. You don’t need lipstick as a base for the eyes. Just make sure that there is no oil on your eyelids before you put the tattoo on.
If you want to refresh your summer makeup routine and have a unique and sharp look, find the right tattoo for you and place it somewhere on your face.
This year, we have seen the resurgence of ankle tattoos as a trend. Ankle tattoos have come back in all types of designs, from lean designs or scripts to full anklet bands (hello ’90s!). To get one of these ankle tattoos, though, will take some commitment ” getting ink done is generally painful, depending on the exact placement. But the result is totally worth it if you love the look.
They help us share our emotions with each other, whether we’re laughing, crying, or projecting love; emojis have become a part of our everyday lives, and so now the next step would logically be to incorporate them into our beauty routines.
Temporary tattoos can be totally fashionable and adorable, and now we’ve been given these new emoji lip tattoos to obsess over. These tiny tattoos can be worn on the face and even directly on your lips, so you can carry your favorite emojis with you all day; it’s the perfect way to merge together two hot trends of today!
Back in 2011, everyone was freaking out over Temporary Eye Tattoos and Violent Lips. Jeff Haddad was the creator behind those beauties, the tattoos for which covered your lips and lids with patterns and glitter, from colorful rainbows and spatters to animal prints, glitter, and fun prints like sweet treats (and so on). In other words, they were just really cool additions to so many fashionistas’ Instagram feeds! Five years have gone by since then, and now Haddad’s two daughters, Isabella and Sophia, have picked up where he left off.
Isabella, 19, and Sophia, 15, have entered the beauty business by creating their press-on temporary tattoos in the form of our favorite emojis. Dubbed Violent Lip Minis, it’s clear they’re working to follow in their father’s footsteps, but the appliqués do differ from the original Violent Lips.
As the “minis’ name addition entails, these temporary emoji tattoos are teeny, so they can be worn anywhere you want, without having to make a huge statement as you might have needed to with the past products. And that’s definitely the biggest draw. The discretion relating to the size makes them easy to put just about anywhere, without causing much room for criticism from onlookers.
“The original Violent Lips temporary lip tattoos are applied onto someone’s entire mouth, which is kind of a commitment,’ said the sisters in an interview with Cosmopolitan.com. “We created Minis because we wanted to give our customers the option to apply a more subtle product that still possesses a memorable statement. As soon as we came up with the idea to start this new line, we decided to make it a multi-purpose tattoo that can be applied onto the lips, face, nails, and body.’
It’s nice to see that things are staying in the family. Working off of Jeff’s initial idea, his daughters have created a modern twist that will have everyone raving. The emoji stickers, which were inspired by Isabella and Sophia’s classroom doodles, will make a great, yet subtle statement in the fashion world in the near future.

Cute small tattoos for girls can rightly be considered unique accessories, while also being brilliant self-expression means telling a lot about the personality and the inner world of the wearer. Tiny tattoos are also a great idea to start your journey in the epic world of ink with, where getting in the grip of an obsession with all those beautiful, little stamps is inevitable. Below, we present 50+ undeniably cute small tattoo ideas for girls along with their meaning to inspire you!
Famous Russian tattoo artist and Instagram star Sasha Unisex has teamed up with Estee Lauder to launch a selection of temporary tattoos for fashion chameleons, who love the idea of wearing tattoos, but never stick to one design and look. Sasha, who can be considered the originator of the watercolor tattoo craze, has her own line of temporary tattoos and even registered her eponymous brand back in 2014.
This time around, she decided to reach wider masses and to give the Estee Lauder fans a chance to wear her art, launching these unique summer lines dubbed Flowers and Black & White.
Sasha herself stars in the lookbook of her collection, alongside models Ellen Sheidlin, Yana Kryukova and Mary Kuzmenkova, who are pictured wearing the designs from both her lines.
While the Flowers collection focuses on delicate watercolor flower tattoos, the Black & White range brings in dramatic black-and-white drawings, as the name already implies. Besides flowers, the artist has used other interesting motifs in the collection, mostly illustrations of animals, including foxes, dogs, horses and bears, a theme she often uses in her art.
Bright colors and intricate designs are the key motifs Sasha uses in her art, along with subtle geometric touches, which have all been combined in her temporary tattoo collection. We see pretty bows here, blooming roses and realistic-looking leaves, unicorns and some empowering messages that might have been created with women in mind, but will definitely appeal to men too.
Tattoos represent an entire world, where art, emotions and philosophy go hand in hand, representing the wearer’s inner world and personality the best ways possible. Actually, in the modern world every other person wears at least a tiny tattoo, be that a woman or a man, a supermodel or a fashion blogger.
Sasha’s tattoos let you embrace your most colorful and boldest self, and if you aren’t self-confident enough to wear them for the rest of your life, investing in her temporary designs is a good idea.
The Sasha Unisex x Estee Lauder tattoo collection actually uses Sasha’s most iconic tattoo sketches, letting you instantly apply your favorite design to your skin without feeling any pain, while also having the option of removing it whenever you get tired and want to embrace your own naked skin. The temporary tattoos from these lines can be purchased from Tattooyou.com and from the artist’s personal website ” sashaunisex.com.
In case of buying Estee Lauder products at EsteeLauder.com from June 7 to July 7, you have the chance of getting Sasha’s temporary tattoos as a gift, when you use the promotion code SASHAUNISEX 1, and your purchase is over $70 USD.

Do you like tattoos? Sometimes we positively love them too! Other times, not so much. Depends on what we see at the moment. The more artistic the designs, the more likely to gain our approval. Then again, many people seem to get random bouts of tattoos that just look too disorganized for our tastes.
Of course, there are those who get their tattoos to create something beautiful out of a body that has been marred by cancer, specifically if there has been a double mastectomy to remove the danger. In this case, we see some rather incredible designs by really creative individuals, which help recreate the body of the woman who has forgotten to feel beautiful.
Some have opted for tattooed gorgeous bras, others have florals or animals drawn on, removing from a person’s notice the fact that nipples or sometimes whole breasts are missing. While some tattoos are done in bad taste for some individuals, like misspelled words and rather indecent drawings on forearms, others have a story to tell and a body to beautify.
Or they can just be really wacky but awesome 3 dimensional pieces that are rather hard to forget. The 2D tattoos are cool and all, but it is the 3D acrylic tattoos that have us flabbergasted, mouth left open and eyes feasting on the artistic creations before us.
Now, all tattoos need not be with a needle and ink either. It appears that Natasha Farnsworth has discovered a new way of painting on people, tattooing using acrylic paints, the back becoming the canvas more often than not and a woman’s body being turned into multi-colored caves, ethereal galaxies and rather fascinating waterfalls, the images themselves so very real that one seems to get sucked into their world entirely. In Farnsworth’s case, her lover is her canvas and the romance of drawing on her back is rather enviable.
Some are on the scarier side though, something you don’t realize looking at the colorful cave option. In the horror scene designs, we notice some frighteningly real-looking snakes pushing forward out of a ripped back.
And then there is that enchanting night sky, a mottled rip on the back giving way to a whole universe beyond, as if the woman before us is something out of a science fiction movie, a goddess of sorts with the galaxy as her epicenter. There is a beautiful earthly night sky as the dusk gives way to Nuit, though that and the waterfall look a little too 2D for our tastes.
And then we notice ourselves on another planet, staring through a window over heavenly oceans towards what we deem to be earth, unless we have entered a whole different nebula on its own. We much prefer the gentleness of the tones there, the image having floated around the Internet for years now, over the creepy caves with the dripping lava seen though openings on the back and rather reminding us of certain glimpses of Hell that we notice on Farnsworth’s lover as well.
All in all, it is really interesting how something like a tattoo can be revamped and reworked and turned into a totally different form of art, where what you put on is no longer entirely permanent and you won’t have to go through the embarrassment of removing from the face or other parts of the body when things go downhill.
Acrylic it is, darling, and we really would love to try some on ourselves! Maybe we should go backless over the summer and have these incredible 3D tattoos showing off a whole different side of us entirely?

Don’t miss: Temporary Hair Tattoos Are A Thing Now
This year, it appears that one of the biggest summer trends is indeed the temporary flash tattoos to add a fun and trendy twist to your outfits as you enjoy your days out in the sunshine. No matter the outfit, it appears these pieces are perfect for offering a cute alternative to typical jewellery accessories.
Remember the stick on tattoos that rubbed off easily with water that we got used to in the ’90s and early 2000’s? Remember how awesome they made us feel, no matter how awkward an art piece they were? Remember your mother’s admonishments when she found you with your limbs full of the weirdest cartoon characters and immediately made you take a shower where she supervised the scrubbing off of the monstrosities?
We bet what you remember best is how awesome you felt as you walked around with your very own tattoo, knowing full well you can change it anytime you like into something newer and better. It was a liberating experience to know you are in control over your own body.
Temporary flash tattoos are great for the beach, for the music festivals that you will be attending time and again over the next 2 months, the quintessential BBQ meet ups, and the dates that require a bit more of personality to be present. It is a very trendy accessory to wear these days, stuck to your body and without any chance of being stolen in order to be sold to the highest bidder as is the case with real gold jewellery.
How it works? Place the tattoo on your skin, dampen it up and peel the applicator away, leaving in its place an awesome metallic colored unmovable accessory.
How exactly should you be wearing flash tattoos to be right, though? We cannot exactly show off our tats the way we did 10-15 years ago when we were but newly reaching our teenage years. Thankfully, there are a few guides out there to show us what looks best and many people who would love to point you in the right direction.
1. Wear It Like a Celebrity Would
This is a very ambiguous hint but it makes sense really. After all, celebs are our source of fashion inspiration! Flash tats have become big because of celebrity endorsements as it is, but if you still want to know how it looks, check out the way Vanessa Hudgens wore it at Coachella 2015. She had it on her arm as a tribal armband, wearing an intriguing Sassanian figure across the top of her abdomen with a Child of Wild x Flash Tattoos piece as well.
Queen B has her own line in black, on the other hand, and that one fills up the body with more traditional temporary tats, from the Temptu for Dereon Tattoos line. Celebrities have been donning these awesome looks for a few months now and it is only becoming more prevalent among the paparazzi photo shoots.
2. Keep It Totally Colorful
The more colors you add, the lovelier your flash tattoos will look really. It is all about dazzling the eyes of those looking your way, the “Illia’ pack containing some rather cute designs for you. You can have it all over the arms and neck, particularly taking over the wrist regions with multiple styles.
The brightness of some artist collections, such as Charmaine Olivia’s “Be Bright’ pieces, allow one to embrace the inner mermaid we all have dwelling in us.
3. Feel the Chic in the Boho Looks
One of the biggest trends of the year is the boho chic fashion, which appears in the way we have been dressed, from the garments to the accessories. Travellers can feel even more of the exotic feel with the pretty golden flash tattoos now, dreaming of their awesome getaways.
The wanderlust sets in and the tats only serve to give you more of that tribal feel as you can imagine yourself on a deserted island with your loved ones or simply meeting lost strangers. Boho combined with exotic is where we are most comfortable it seems.
4. Bring It To the Beach
One of the best places to be wearing the flash tattoos is at the beach, on your body as incredibly eye catching pieces that take up no space and have no weight to them. You do not even need to worry about anything getting lost. You can rock the temp tattoos down your back and around your midriff as well, but should consider that tan lines they will eventually leave behind.
5. Give It Some Extra Glam
For those of us you like to show off a little more, wear a bit more bling and generally appear to be the women in charge of the Amazon, the flaunting of the glamour that defines you through a gorgeous metallic flash tattoo.
You can use it in alignment down your back, kind of like aligning the chakras as you do your yoga, or wear it around your arms, adding glam to your exercise routines.
6. Exotic Is the Name of the Game
Whether you plan to look like an Amazon queen or a Saharan princess, the inner regal lady in you will be stunningly beautiful with a set of stunning metallic tattoos shaped to show off tribal designs from Child of Wild. The Desert Dweller sets are most intriguing indeed, with tats extending down from under the chin as well to the center of the chest.
There are even the Kurdish slavery designs that had become big during the early 1900s, now seen not as a mark of property but to show off a woman’s integral beauty. Egyptian scarabs and ankhs line the nape and under the ears as well, extending to between the shoulder blades to show off the ancient in modern style.
