Tattoos can be a major commitment, so we don't blame you for starting your ink collection with something small and delicate. But the thing with getting tattooed is, once you have your first one, it's hard not to come back for seconds. Maybe you'll get another minimalist design done, or maybe finally take the plunge and get your first big tattoo. Either way, we're here to have the ball of inspiration rolling for you. You can take a look at some gorgeous low-key ones here and here, but if you're up for some not-so-tiny ink ideas, we rounded up all the inspo you need from local celebrities and Preview girls:
1. Shaira Luna
When she's not cocooned in her go-to blazers and turtlenecks, you'll be graced with the sight of fashion photographer Shaira Luna's armful of inks. She has everything from her dad's favorite racecar, a table inspired by her favorite band, to a basket that's a tribute to Jane Birkin!
2. Erica Paredes
Filipina chef and cool girl Erica Paredes has a stunning half-sleeve tatt on her arm that ends right above her elbow. Meanwhile, her forearms are adorned with smaller food-related ink—an apple and croissant, included.
3. Tuesday Vargas
Tuesday Vargas' right arm is home to a bunch of bold inks that she effortlessly pulls off.
4. Ellen Adarna
Ellen Adarna's serenity prayer tattoo rarely makes an appearance on the 'gram now. Thankfully, the actress' June 2014 Preview cover shoot has it documented in all its glory.
