These will look good no matter where you place them!

Whatever your reason is for wanting a tattoo, the hardest part is always deciding on the perfect design.

Unlike dyeing your hair or putting on makeup, a tattoo will be there forever. As you grow old and your body changes, your ink will transform along with you. So as much as you want to be trigger-happy when it comes to what you get stamped on your skin, it’s always best to browse through a lot of pegs and figure out the perfect placement first. Remember, you’ll most likely be seeing that tattoo for the rest of your life.

So our suggestion? Go for something simple—a design that will stand the test of time, has a personal symbolic meaning for you, and will look great no matter your personal aesthetic and sense of fashion. To narrow down your options, we’ve rounded up 10 classy tattoo designs to consider when you go under the needle.

10 Simple Yet Chic Tattoo Designs to Consider

1. A delicate script

Having an important word or name spelled out in a beautiful cursive font is a classy choice. You can get it done as a rib tatt or as a tiny script on your wrist or finger. Whichever you choose, it's sure to look good. Just remember to pick something that personally resonates with you.

2. Colorful shapes

If you’re looking for something playful, getting a tatt of your favorite shape (or series of shapes) is a pretty cute idea! Done in solid colors or a rainbow gradient, there’s something about this design that’s an instant mood lifter.

3. A simple line art

The key to nailing a line art tattoo is picking an artist who can execute your peg with thin and delicate lines. If you’re a romantic, this is the perfect graphic to get in the form of sensual silhouettes of people or faces. There's also something silently poetic about human outlines drawn in such an abstract manner.

4. An abstract scenery

For those who love waking up to a picturesque view of nature when they go on vacation, why not get a tattoo of it? But instead of a hyper detailed ink, pick one that’s mostly lines and blots of color.

5. A simple line or series of lines

If it’s your first time getting inked, may we suggest you consider simple lines drawn like a ring on your finger or a bracelet? Or, if you love bold graphics in general, you can try getting a single straight line done on the side of your arm as a cool accent.

6. A constellation

You should consider a constellation tattoo for more reasons than one. Depending on your peg, this set of stars could look incredibly minimalist or playful on your skin. Up to you if you prefer it drawn as dots or lines or even intricate stars.

7. An airplane

Let’s admit it, we’ve all had that feeling of wanderlust! For the frequent traveler—or for those who simply love to tour the world when they can—a silhouette or a mini drawing of a plane is a must! The beauty of this graphic is that you can scale it down dramatically to place it in between your fingers or even behind your ear!

8. A flower's silhouette

Flowers, when drawn a little more abstract or as a line art, can look incredibly dainty on your skin. Our suggestion is to pick a peg of your favorite flower that includes its stem, so that the design looks elongated and slim.

9. Musical notes

Love music but not too keen on having your favorite lyrics inked on your skin? Why not opt for your favorite note (or set of notes) instead? It’s the perfect ink if you’re the type who can’t live without your earphones and love to dance to the beat of your own soundtrack.

10. An infinity sign

The infinity symbol can mean a lot of things to different people. Whether that’s believing that eternity exists or thinking that life has no bounds, it’s definitely an uplifting design to get. There are a myriad of ways to dress this graphic up or have it drawn with a very thin simple line, too.
