19 Subtle And Severely Minimalist Tattoos

Not quite ready for large pieces but want to get some inking of your own? Here are some minimalist tattoo ideas for you to start with.
Artist unknown.
There's nothing wrong with getting simpler tattoos that are often made with single needles. It doesn't automatically make you a part of the often criticised yet generally harmless subculture of hipsters. Not that it's such a bad thing. And a liking for subtle and often perceived as feminine tattoos like these does not reduce the level of your testosterone.

There are all kinds of tattoos and tattoo enthusiasts. Not every tattoo has to have some kind of meaning so deep you can see Adele rolling in it. Some tattoo lovers simply like the way lines and geometric shapes balance or look symmetrical on their bodies, exactly the way they want in. And even some of the most heavily tattooed of them all like to get minimalist tattoos like these once in a while.
