Many people consider getting tattoos, but their jobs or lifestyles don't permit having a grand artistic statement on their bodies. Being able to easily hide a tattoo may also be essential in avoiding awkward conversations with disapproving parents who might be a little old-fashioned. There are lots of nooks and crannies on your body where you can get a tiny bit of ink without making too big of a declaration. Many celebs like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and Katy Perry are popularizing this trend by getting small designs in discreet areas.

A few of these clever places to get a tattoo may come as a surprise. Easily hidden tattoos are cute and still allow you to show off your style in a subtle, unique way. For those of us who aren’t quite Yakuza material, the best spots for secret tattoos allow for covert self-expression.

Along Your Ribcage

A post shared by @tattoonailsdiary on

This location may be one of the most painful places to get inked, but it usually leads to stunning results. The reason why it hurts so much is that the area typically has zero fat and muscle; fat provides a barrier to the needle. But this tattoo is very easy to hide with clothing.

The Underboob

A post shared by badgalriri (@badgalriri) on

This kind of tattoo has gained a lot of popularity recently thanks to Riri’s awesome Egyptian underboob tattoo. It can be easily hidden in the office, but maybe reconsider if you don't want it to be visible at the beach.

The Inside Of Your Lip

A post shared by Nikol Radielović ( on

This is one place that nobody will see unless you decide to show it off. One potential upside, or downside depending on how you look at it, is that the tattoo isn’t permanent. The tissue on the inside of your mouth regenerates faster than skin elsewhere on your body. Some lip tattoos may last only a few months, with the maximum duration being about a year.
