If you’re a minimalist looking for new ink to express yourself, here are five different designs that are sure to make you smile.

1. Star

A star can be a perfect symbol of your tendency to dream, or a wish you want to make come true. Either way, it’s super cute!

2. Cross

Crosses are a very popular look, and they can represent a loved one, your religious connection, or just be a cool look!

3. Heart

Who doesn’t like a little reminder that they are loved, or love someone else? This is a fun tattoo that’s sure to brighten anyone’s day!


4. Yin and Yang

A little reminder to keep some balance in your life and to maintain an open perspective. You can’t have the calm without the chaos.

5. Dots

Tattoos don’t always have to have some kind of deeper meaning. Sometimes it’s all about the aesthetic, and little dots are a great way to keep your look fresh.
