Really want a tattoo but want to keep it on the down low (DL)?
We get it, some people love to show off their beautiful body art whilst others would rather have their inking hidden or just a little more discreet.
Whether it’s for your family, your job, or like me you just think discreet tats are that much cuter, we’ve pulled together 9 of the daintiest tattoo placement ideas.
Don’t worry — it’ll be our little secret!
The side of your ribs
Your bra will be covering it most of the time, so a tattoo over here will be a sexy surprise when you choose to go bra-less.
And with your clothes on top no-one will ever know of your delicate inking…
A classic favourite.
Although not completely hidden, a small wrist tattoo can be pretty discreet especially once you put on your watch and arm candy.
The upper thigh
The thigh is such a big area that you could get a little more creative with your delicate inking.
Corran has a really cute thigh tat of a bird, which can only be seen if she’s in shorts or on the beach.
Behind the ear
This is another discreet area for girls, as when your hair is down it should cover the tattoo.
Unless someone is kissing your neck (or your rocking a pony tail) this placement can remain largely unseen.
On the crook of your arm
Another arm tattoo and yet again, this is one of the least discreet options.
But we love small script tattoos on the crook of your arm. It can look so feminine and let’s face it, your bag handle will be covering it at most times anyway…
Below the hairline
We used to lust over Erin Silver’s neck tat on 90210 and for good reason!
It’s subtle, pretty and easily hidden if you have long hair.
The upper back
Or the spine, is a great place to get thinner, longer tattoos
Anywhere on your back will be covered at most times by your clothes, so it’s quite a safe area so have a dainty tat or to get creative discreetly.
Ribcage (Under your boob)
Unlike Rihanna, most people don’t have their under boob on show so frequently.
You could opt for getting inked under just a small portion of one boob (which is the more common option) or go the full monty like Rihanna.
…or the ankle, each are incredibly cute and discreet.
If you live somewhere hot and you live in you havaianas, this is not the one for you.
However here in the UK it’s pretty rainy most year around, so although a foot tattoo wouldn’t be totally hidden from view, (especially in a pair of pumps) it’s not OTT either.
Alternatively, an ankle tattoo is even more discreet.
