From full sleeves to micro pieces, there are a wide range of options when it comes to the size, location, and style of your tattoo choice. Though getting inked has risen and popularity and doesn't quite carry the stigma it used to in your grandparents' day, some people are still hesitant to get anything that could attract too much attention. Luckily, there are plenty of finger tattoos that'll inspire you to follow the new trend that can be as subtle or as bold as you'd like.
Even more interesting, the location on the finger is just as varied as the ink work itself. You've probably seen people with a mustache tat on the inside of their index finger that they cleverly use to make a mini 'stache abover their lip. But since finger tattoos have become more mainstream, people have taken to making full use of the entire canvas of the finger. From dot work to geometric designs, there truly are endless options when it comes to how and where you get inked on your digits.
So if you're looking for some inspiration or are just a little curious, check out these finger tattoos from Instagram that are sure to spark some creativity for your own piece.
