List Rules Vote up the celebrities with the best minimalist ink.

Celebrities love getting permanent ink, and one A-lister trend involves minimalist tattoos. There are so many stars with tiny tattoos that it’s hard to keep track of them all. Everyone from the Jenner sisters, to Zayn Malik, to Bella Haddid are heading to the parlor, but they aren't leaving with sleeve tattoos. Unless you are looking really closely, you might not even see their new ink.

Minimalist tattoos are all the rage. And shops, like NYC's Bang bang that specialize in small, detailed designs, are blowing up. Some of the tiny celeb tats have intimate meanings, while others are just for fun.

When Zayn Malik got a simple and stylish "Love" scrawled across his knuckles, it sparked rumors of an engagement to his then girlfriend Gigi Hadid. The couple is no longer together, but the tattoo remains undeniably cool.

Not long after walking in her first Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, model Bella Hadid got tiny angel wings inked on her ankles by JonBoy. While the tattoo seems to honor Hadid's first VS Show, some speculate she could also be flying free from her breakup with The Weeknd.

Keke Palmer shared the ironic story behind this effortless forearm tattoo on IG. She didn't remain in a relationship with the guy who inspired the quote, but the ink is still important to her.
