Intimidated by the commitment of a tattoo? These all-star artists (and their amazing Instagram feeds) just might be able to sway your thoughts on the matter, thanks to their expertise in miniature, cool, and downright beautiful ink. From the man behind Cara Delevingne's tongue-in-cheek body art to the cult-fave L.A.-based artist who creates the most intricate diminutive sketches we've ever seen, consider this the ultimate in small-tattoo inspiration. Keep scrolling to meet the artists who do delicate ink best!
Home Base: Tokyo and Melbourne
Stanislava Pinchuk (who goes by Miso) specializes in teeny-tiny minimalist designs—which she learned by practicing on herself and her friends. Just a look at her feed makes us want to adorn our wrists, fingers, and collarbone with unexpected (but incredibly pretty) little symbols.
Home Base: West 4 Tattoo, New York City
When Kendall Jenner wanted to get a nearly indiscernible white dot on the inside of her finger this summer, she enlisted the help of JonBoy. Thanks to Jenner (and A-list friends like Hailey Baldwin), the artist's small and simple designs are quickly becoming cult favorites.
Home Base: Shamrock Social Club, Los Angeles
East (as well as many other artists on this list) specializes in a single-needle technique, hence that lighter-than-air line. He's your guy for whisper-thin cursive or outlines, as well as pointillist-style shading. (And those BFF palm trees? SO cute!)
Home Base: Bang Bang, New York City
The go-to guy of Rihanna and Cara Delevingne—he's the man who inked "Bacon" and "Made in England" onto the bottoms of the model's feet—Bang Bang is great at tongue-in-cheek designs, but his small and incredibly realistic art is also fantastic (like the lion on Delevingne's finger). If you have plans to be in the city, booking an appointment with Bang Bang himself will require a bit of a wait—but we definitely recommend checking out his incredibly talented team of artists too.
