20 Tiniest Micro Tattoos Ever (And Why Micro Tattoos Aren't So Bad)

20 Tiniest Micro Tattoos Ever (And Why Micro Tattoos Aren't So Bad)

Also known as 20 Micro Tattoos Tinier Than Donald Trump's Hands. Just kidding. Not really, no.

They're called "micro tattoos" for a very specific reason — they're tiny! But before you go on about how these tattoos are going to look like shit, give it a few more years then get out. They're tattoos. They're ink inserted into a shallow layer of the human skin. The human body is gradually degenerating so you shouldn't be surprised to learn that even tattoos fade. That's what touch-ups are for. And as much as we're just as sick of the likes of Kendall Jenner feeling badass with her dot tattoo, everyone's entitled to a tattoo of their choice. Whether it's a teeny tiny bit of ink or years worth of a massive back piece.

Let's appreciate good tattoos in all forms — though we do like taking the piss out of some tattoo trends every once in a while. And since New York-based tattoo artist, Jon Boy is bringing back micro tattoos again, here's some of the tiniest works of his we've ever seen that are so small it's almost not even there.


Micro tattoos aren't limited to tattoo virgins or girls fresh from their teen years. These tiny things are great fillers or small additions to limited and vulnerable spots like the side of the face, behind the ear, or between the fingers.
