The Perfect Tattoos For People Who Hate Tattoos

Small and delicate tattoos are all the rage right now, and they're especially perfect for anyone looking to get some ink without getting too much attention. Their hidden placement — often behind the ear, or on the finger — can lend an edgy sense of mystery to them, even more so when they're done in white.

White tattoos are practically invisible, which is why it may come as a surprise to learn that a ton of It girls, like Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, and Shay Mitchell, have them.

Ahead, we've rounded up our favorite celebrity white tattoos (plus a few examples from those without a "k" or "m" next to their Instagram follower count) that'll make even the most body art-averse maybe, just maybe, start to change their tune...

Back in 2014, Cara Delevingne added a white tattoo, which reads "breathe deep," to her collection. Who doesn't need a reminder to do that every now and then?
Kendall Jenner got a tiny white dot by the NYC-based celebrity tattoo artist JonBoy, and he told us about how it came to be: "To her, it's the little things that matter. And the white color was because she didn’t want it to show with modeling and all that."

Jenner also got inked in white with BFF Hailey Baldwin, then revealed the true meaning of the tattoo on her website. "The one on my right hand is a full heart to represent an angel, and my left is a broken heart — kind of like the devil side," she wrote. The white, shattered heart on her left hand matches the shattered heart in red on Baldwin's inner finger.
Shay Mitchell showed off her super-subtle inner wrist art on Instagram back in 2012. "Infinite #love for my girls ...," she captioned the post.
Ellie Goulding got a white arrow tattooed on her index finger in 2013. The musician has a collection of delicate tattoos, but we think this is the perfect example of how to pull of light-colored ink.
This anchor would be barely noticeable to anyone besides your manicurist.
Not only is the ink badass, that's some major brow and highlight inspiration, too.
These matching finger tattoos from NYC's West 4 Tattoo are so chic, especially with a polished mani.
The back of the neck is an ideal place to hide a tattoo if you have long hair. Do it in white, and no one will ever know until you want them to.
Nothing pairs with a Cartier bracelet quite like a diamond...
