Everything You Need to Know About Minimal Tattoos

With tattoos being pretty commonplace these days, there are tattoo styles to fit just about everyone.

Ranging from bold, colorful pieces to small, dainty designs, there are tattoo designs to suit any vision you have in mind.

For those who are new to tattoos or favor a small design that doesn’t get them in trouble at work, minimal tattoos have a lot to offer.

Today, we will be going over what a minimal tattoo is and offering answers to all of your minimalist tattoo related questions.

What Is A Minimal Tattoo

A minimal tattoo is a small colored or black and grey tattoo, which features a minimalist composition without shadows and only one color tone.

Often confused with one line tattoos, the design of minimal tattoos is far more complex and incorporates multiple elements of compostion, like a minimalist portrait tattoo or a minimalist flower tattoo.

If you are interested in a more subtle aesthetic, or a tattoo that can be covered up at work or school with ease, a minimal tattoo might just be for you.

One of our favorite minimal tattoo artist is Ahmet Cambaz, based in Istanbul and we totally recommend you to take a look at his work in order to familiarize with this tattoo trend.

Minimal Tattoo Trend

Minimal tattoos are getting popular these days and a reason might be that minimalism and tattoos are both forms of art.

When a talented artist puts them together there is born beauty. The purest form of beauty. The simple beauty. That undeniable beauty that each person seeks.

And what a better way to express who you are and what defines you, your culture and your thoughts than a beautiful minimal tattoo.

What are the Most Popular Types of Minimal Tattoos?

Are you interested in getting your own minimal tattoo but don’t know what to choose as a subject?

No problem! With the minimal tattoo trend in full swing, there are a number of subjects to choose from.

Here are some of the most popular.


It has become very popular to get the simple silhouette of your favorite animal as a way to show your love and appreciation for the animal kingdom.

This is a great idea for a minimal tattoo as it is simple yet very recognizable and easily interpreted.

Geometric Shapes

Believe it or not, there are a number of meanings associated with different shapes.

Due to such a variety of different meanings, geometric shapes make wonderful minimal tattoos.

You can say a lot by saying very little with a geometric shape tattoo.


As a more classic form of minimal tattoo, arrows have long been a favorite when it comes to minimalist tattoos.

If you’d like to get this classic minimal tattoo style for yourself, make sure to do your research.

There is an array of different meanings associated with arrows depending on how many arrows are present in your tattoo.

How Much Do Minimal Tattoos Cost?

Like any tattoo, there are a number of factors that should be considered when predicting what your minimal tattoo will cost.

How much your minimal tattoo will cost is based on things like your tattoo artist’s experience, the size of the minimal tattoo, and the placement on your body for example.

With that being said, you can almost always expect to pay less for a minimal tattoo than other styles such as watercolor tattoos due to the lack of color.

How Long Do Minimal Tattoos Take To Heal

Considering the fact that the skin tissue damage is smaller, the minimal tattoos heal faster than the regular ones, around 2 weeks. Nevertheless, you should avoid the sun exposure at least 1 month after tattooing.

In order, to speed up the healing process, we strongly advise you to use the best aftercare tattoo products and be patient!
