The Teeny-Tiny Tattoos We Want This Summer

Photographed by Rochelle Brock.
Warm temperatures have finally arrived — fingers crossed they stay — and that means we have clothing options other than boots, jeans, and turtlenecks. For the first time in what seems like an eternity, we can show some skin without shivering. And while most people will take this as an opportunity to get a sunless tan (or a real one), we're here to bask in what we consider to be peak tattoo season.
With your collarbones, arms, and ankles finally naked enough to show off, there's no time like the present to finally get that ink you've been thinking about. (Think side-boob, arm, wrist, and neck for your key placement spots.)
Getting a tattoo requires a lot of thought before booking your appointment, though, so in case you need a little inspiration before going under the needle, we've rounded up the raddest designs we can't stop eyeing on Instagram right now.
