Recently, more and more celebrities have been flaunting their tattoos (or revealing ones we didn’t know they had!). If you follow a lot of celebrities, both local and international, you’ve probably gained inspiration from them to get your own skin inked. 

Tattoos seem cool and meaningful, but several factors still make people hesitate to get one. Some fear needles, while others can’t afford to pay for tattoos yet. If you badly want that first tattoo but are afraid to commit to big ones, we’re here to help!

Here are some dainty tattoo ideas for your first ink, all done through the stick-and-poke or hand-poke method! 

While this takes up more time than a machine tattoo, some artists offer more affordable rates for hand-poked tattoos and it also allows for a more personal tattooing moment with your artist. Plus, hand-poked tattoos are said to hurt less!

Line art tattoos are always easy on the eye.
