• Finding the perfect body placement for your next tattoo is key.
  • The wrist is a great area for smaller ink that's also visible.
  • Wrist tattoos are ideal for daily reminders or meaningful symbols.

If you truly want to wear your heart on your sleeve, then the wrist makes a great canvas for your next tattoo. The entire surface area - no matter which precise placement you choose - provides a relatively flat plane area that's easy to ink, which makes the wrist especially popular for first-timers who want small designs or little sayings.

While a tiny wrist tattoo is generally more visible than, say, a design on the ribs or back, this placement allows for easy coverage with foundations or bracelets - making it an ideal choice for those who might be slightly hesitant to get inked in a more prominent location. Conversely, we like the wrist because of its visibility: the conspicuousness of this spot is perfect for tattoos meant to serve as a source of inspiration, support, or reminder.

Don't just take our word for it - check out these gorgeous small wrist tattoos to get some serious inspiration ahead.
