Small tattoos are a good choice for people who want and like ink, but are not ready to get a huge tattoo, like a full sleeve or full back. Often there are those whose careers do not afford them the privilege of fully expressing themselves with ink the way they might like to. One way for people to be able to get past this is to get a small tattoo. Small tattoos are often easy to hide, especially if it is in a spot that is normally covered by clothing like the back, the stomach, or the shoulder. Great subjects and themes for a small tattoo are stars, symbols, flowers, astrological signs, lettering, and numbers. Small tattoos can hold a very personal and significant meaning to the wearer. It can be as simple as a date. The date inked onto the wearer could be the birth of a child or the death of a parent. These are very meaningful dates, and it is kind of a hidden meaning for the wearer and those close to the wearer. A small tattoo does not necessarily mean an insignificant meaning. In fact, it is often the opposite.
