The best accessory for anyone is a small, meaningful, well-placed tattoo. Sure, arm sleeves and giant back pieces look cool and make quite a statement, but a teeny tiny tattoo can be both tasteful and sexy without causing a stir. And even better? They can be covered up as needed, which is a perk for someone who is perhaps simply not quite ready to let the world know that she's taken a ride on the wild side. On the other hand, veterans of the inked are sure to appreciate a well-placed subtle and sexy tiny tattoo as well. They're a win-win.

So what's the perfect small tattoo? A rose on the foot? Or something deeper with more meaning? We moms are especially fond of the itty-bitty tat since it represents our babies so well. We also like something that will emphasize our favorite body parts, like behind the ear, the shoulder blade, or maybe a small flourish on our finger. Truth be told, there is no right answer. All folks will be able to find the perfect tiny tattoo that suits their style, whether that includes color, minimalist lines, or dotwork.

Considering taking the plunge? There are so many beautiful options to choose from. And to help with the big decision, we found some of the most adorable tiny tattoo designs to inspire the perfect new piece of discreet, sexy ink. From stars and sound waves to crosses and tiny footprints, these lovely tattoos are perfect for the mama who maybe is just starting to find her inner rebel, or for the people who just want a tiny new piece of art on their beautiful bods.

Check out the 50 little tattoos here and get inspired! On that note, why just stop at one tiny tattoo? Their size makes them perfect to get two, three, or more done. No one will ever notice -- unless we want them to!
