(Recently, we group of friends had a conversation on the type of tattoo to get. Here’s how the discussion went on!) 

Caroline: Hey all, you know what? I am going to get a new tattoo on my back! Just wondering, what should I get?

Nick: Oh, wow! That’s great. Last time you went for a tiny meaningful tattoo, this time, opt for a colorful tattoo. 

Ben: No, no. Getting a large tattoo still seems cool, but instead of colors, you should get it filled with patterns.

Rowan: Caroline, I am also coming with you. I am also planning to have a tattoo on the wrist. I have already decided to get a minimalist tattoo inked. So, nick and ben spare me from suggestions.

Caroline: Rowan, it seems like you are planning from a very long on getting a tattoo. That’s great. But tell me what it is with the minimalist tattoo thing? 

(Nick and Ben also inquired.)

Rowan: Come with me. I’ll explain it to you in detail.

This is how her explanation went,

To get a permanent tattoo is a lifetime decision, so be careful of what you are getting inked. The large and confined tattoos are way out of style. Nowadays, people are looking for a tattoo that is small and discrete. While I would say it is better to have a minimalist tattoo.

Whether you want to cover up the back or want to get a tattoo on the wrist only, the minimal is the answer. Now, you would ask – what exactly is a minimalist tattoo? Before you thought about opting for or considering a minimal tattoo, you might have had a look at different tattoo designs. 

Look at Some Minimalist tattoos:

Most of them had too much filled up designs and colors. A minimalist tattoo is something that doesn’t have anything to do with internal artwork. In simpler words, it is an outliner tattoo. It can be small, medium, or even large.

Are you still confused? Let’s not waste time and directly move on to the Minimalist tattoo ideas for both men and women. To make it easier for you to navigate, we have created separate sections depicting minimal tattoo ideas.

  • There can be minimal tattoos with colors also.
