      Tattoo Ideas for Your First Ink

      Tattoo Ideas for Your First Ink

      The first time you get a tattoo, it's a lot like falling in love for the first time. It's liberating, exhilarating, it can hurt a little bit, and most of all: it usually makes you crave more. However, unlike significant others that may come and go, tattoos are forever. Some people prefer to go all in with their first ink — deciding on something that spans their entire arm, leg or back — while others fancy racking up small and dainty designs over time. There's no right or wrong way to enter ink territory, but for your first tat, it most definitely can't hurt to start off small and work your way up to something bigger down the line. It can also be harder than one would expect to choose exactly what you want. While some give it thought for months and go in with a set design, others prove more spontaneous about the experience. Whatever your body art style, it can definitely benefit you to show up with something in mind — which is why we rounded up some rad first tattoo ideas. Spoiler alert: cat-lovers, we found your purr-fect design.


      Keep scrolling to see 10 ideas we can't get enough of!
      How adorable is this outline of a kitty's face? Complete with dainty whiskers and a tiny, tiny little moon inside. Feline fans, this is definitely the way to go.
      Something we're very into: half-needle tats, like this one. They're super thin and dainty and have such a pretty effect on the skin.
      A little music note on the back of your neck is small enough to be easily hidden — if that's what you want — but also looks extremely cool when you wear your hair up.
      For anyone who fancies all things floral, a flower is a no-brainer tattoo idea. P.S. we love the subtle, red hue of the petals here.
      Try this tat if you want to turn up the voltage⚡.
      These little stars serve up major galaxy vibes.
      Here's a little more floral inspiration for you. A lotus is actually a fairly common first tattoo, and we love the angular silhouette.
      If you like tiny tats with deeper meanings, then you can't go wrong with an initial on your finger. It doesn't necessary have to be your initial, either — some of the most meaningful tats are shoutouts to your loved ones.
      Here's a cute tattoo idea for you and your bestie! These matching pinky promise tattoos are even better than a friendship bracelet.
      We love text tattoos because they can encompass everything from nicknames to your favorite phrases. This flowing script is one of our favorite designs.
      Sunshine + waves = all the positive vibes. Plus, ankle tats offer the ultimate, under-the-radar placement
