The Tiny New Tattoo Trend You’re About To See Everywhere

But you’ll have to look very closely…

Ever since Bella Hadid got inked with two teeny tiny wings on each ankle, the trend for miniature tattoos has soared (excuse the pun).

Cara Delevingne was one of the first celebrities to tap the trend, by way of a tiny diamond helix tattoo.
