A lot of people don’t like tattoos because they think they’re aggressive and distasteful. But not every tattooed person is covered in dragons and flames. While I’m not about to judge anyone for their choice in how to decorate their own body, I understand why some people seem to generalize all tattoos as “bad,” just because they don’t see the more delicate versions of ink.

Well, that stops today! Here are 31 totally petite tats that’ll change how you see the art entirely:

1. An olive branch as delicate as the sentiment.
