What to Think About When Getting Minimalist And Small Tattoos

When it comes to small tattoos, there are different things to watch out for, especially since there is less room for mistakes. If an artist messes up a line on a tiny tat, it’s not like they can go over it and fix it the same way they could with a big one or like with makeup. Small lines are hard to get right, so you must know what to expect before starting.

Here are some things you should know about tiny tattoos before you get one.

Not All Artists Will Do Them

When getting a tattoo, it’s important to remember that “body art” is a form of art, and each artist has their own strengths and weaknesses. Because of this, a tattoo artist may only do micro-tattoos, while others won’t do them at all. This is why it’s important to do research before going to a tattoo artist.

Check their Yelp and Google ratings and ask them questions. If you choose someone who isn’t good at what they do, is it just their fault, or is it also your fault for choosing someone who isn’t good at what they do?

But with Pearl Lemon Tattoos, you won’t have to worry about this because our tattoo artists are experts at minimalist or small tattoo ideas. You can even request your small customised tattoo with them!

Mistakes Do Happen

In the business world, an old saying goes, “They can’t all be winners.” With a small, fine-line tattoo, there’s not much room for error, so mistakes do happen.


It’s a handmade tattoo, and people make mistakes. When they’re small and micro, the line isn’t always as straight as you’d like it to be. It’s your skin, not paper or a canvas.


Make sure you find an artist who knows what they’re doing (and who’s used to doing fine line art) to minimise the chance of a mistake. Perhaps someone from PL Tattoos can help you with this.

No Two Tattoos Will Ever Look Completely Identical

This is important to know if you want to get matching tattoos with your best friends or a tattoo that looks just like Bella Hadid’s tiny one.


Some colours look different on your skin than they do on other people’s. Sometimes it’s your skin, how you take care of it, the soaps you use, water, or other things.


As a makeup artist, we know that you understand this struggle. As a tattoo is basically like permanent cosmetics, how you do one’s eyebrows or concealer will look different from one person to another despite following all the same steps.


There’s really no way to fix this, but it’s important to know before you go under the needle.

Fine Lines Fade Faster

Tiny tattoos are cute when you get them, but they won’t last as long as traditional tattoos with complete lines.

If it’s a single-needle tattoo, most artists cut down the ink because they can’t use straight black because it bleeds. Instead, they make it less black so the body will remove it faster.

As soon as the ink gets into your body, your immune system starts working on getting rid of it. Single-line tattoos are easier to get rid of because there is less ink.

They Are Easy to Get Reworked

Even though smaller tattoos fade faster than larger ones, they are easier to fix when they do. Some people don’t have the time or money to get tattoos on bigger parts of their bodies, but tattoos can be brought back to life.


As a makeup artist, we know that you get this too. One upside of minimal and tiny tattoos, or in your case, a minimal line or pigment, is that they can be easily reworked if they aren’t to your liking.
