If we consider minimalism from in terms of art, this style constantly discovers new forms. This direction is actively supported by creative people who are in constant search and are ready to realize their full potential at the first opportunity.

In our age of postmodernism, the notes of minimalism are especially felt. Minimalism is reflected in various spheres. The art of inking the body isn’t an exception.

Until recently, voluminous tattoos, which covered a significant part of the body, were very popular. We witness the development of another progressive genre, minimalism in tattoos, along with this trend. Classical large images are left behind, and small images, which can consist of just a few lines, are brought to front.

Small tattoos become more and more popular due to the fact that most people who want to have tattoos on their bodies don’t dare to allocate a large area of skin on their body for this purpose. They may be afraid of excessive attention. Tattoos in minimalism style enable each person to ink on any part of the body a small picture that looks like a small decoration and can be covered with a strand of hair or clothes.

You can find many sketches of images in this genre on the Internet. An experienced tattoo artist with a good imagination can easily add a minimalist feature to any picture. The transformed image will retain its original meaning, but at the same time it will look quite different.

A tattoo in the minimalism style attracts attention by the fact that it contains a unique idea, which is implemented by means of playing with lines using a kind of graphics, rather than by the excess of lines and the presence of complex patterns. Thus, the tattoo artist has the opportunity to emphasize the beauty of the tattoo, without distracting thoughts to its graphic content.

Working in this genre, the artist must have refinement of taste that will enable him to create memorable and spectacular images using the minimum number of lines. At first glance, it might seem that a small work done with several lines is meaningless. However, the pictures in this style are characterized by a certain mystery. Each person gives a sacral meaning to the tattoo in the minimalism style.


This style is based on the geometric elements and monochromaticism. Quite often you can see the following on the images:

Inscriptions that can contain a little information of a philosophical nature are very popular.

As a rule, a variety of colors isn’t used here. Dark tones are preferred. Tattoo artists are often limited to three colors, or sketches in black and grey are used. Images can be placed on any part of the body. They are often small, and sometimes even tiny.

However, this doesn’t mean that only small images are characteristic for the minimalism style. Sometimes a picture can be tattooed all over your back. The main thing here is not how much space on the body the tattoo will occupy, but the fact that the minimum number of images and complex elements will be used.
