Thin, delicate, monochrome tattoos are all the rage at the moment, and celebrities ranging from Miley Cyrus to Zoe Kravitz are rushing to opt for these dainty designs...

Vanessa Hudgens

Chrissy Teigen
In January of 2021, Chrissy Teigen revealed a new tattoo placed along her spine. The 35-year-old has the words ‘Ooh Laa’ traced down her back, a reference to a song by her husband John Legend.

Legend tweeted a video of Teigen getting inked, writing: "Chrissy inspired this song. This song inspired Chrissy’s new tattoo."

This isn't Teigen’s first tattoo – last year she and Legend got matching inks to honour the baby son they lost pre-term, with the word 'Jack’ on their arms.

Kylie Jenner
Blink and you'll miss Kylie Jenner’s arm tattoo – it’s a small heart in red ink that she reportedly got to celebrate her 18th birthday. The 23-year-old has nine known tattoos, most of which are tucked away from public view.

"I like that she has a theme," tattoo artist Bang Bang said of Jenner's ink. "I love that Kylie has a direction and she knows what she wants. I like that her style is little red tattoos. I don't think I've ever met a person that has a bunch of little red tattoos, so I like that it's unique."
