Aside from the actual inking session, one of the longest parts in the process of getting a tattoo is actually *thinking* of the design you'll get. This is understandable since it'll be on your body forever, so you want to make sure you're choosing something you really like. If you're going the minimalist route, you can never go wrong with flowers. They're dainty, simple, and timeless. If you need your ink to be ~hidden~, you can keep the flowers small and they will still look good, TBH!

Need some inspo? I'm here for you, of course. I put together 15 of the cutest small flower tattoo designs I've spotted from Instagram—from regular black ink ones to cool colored ones! Check them out below (and get ready to screenshot your favorites):
