Recently, Carrie shared a photo on Instagram of a delicate new tattoo that she got while on vacation. The design features a delicate flower, symbolizing positivity and moving forward.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at Carrie’s new tattoo and explore other delicate designs that can provide inspiration for anyone considering getting inked. Whether you’re a fan of minimalist designs or intricate patterns, this list is sure to have something that catches your eye.
“From the beach to the tattoo parlor, Destin didn’t know what hit it!” Underwood wrote of her Florida vacation with her three closest friends. Each got a tattoo to commemorate the trip. Underwood got a daisy flower design.
A Closer Look
Here’s a closeup of the tattoo, and you can see that Underwood went for muted colors and fine lines. The overall look is understated and delicate. If you like this design, we’ve got dozens more like it to share with you for your own ink inspiration.
As with Underwood’s design, this one of a sleeping fox is very cute and has a light touch. A stippling effect has been employed to give the design its shape and gorgeous texture.
Small flower tattoos are very popular, and as you saw on one of Underwood’s friends, simple black ink is very attractive. Go small and fine to recreate the look.
This poppy tattoo is similar in shape and size to Underwood’s. However, it is done in black and grey ink instead of color. It can really pay off sticking to this scheme, but if your heart is screaming for color, you can go more toward Underwood’s direction.
A Lovely Lotus
Dots and fine lines have been put to work in this delicate lotus tattoo. If you want to go more abstract than Underwood, something similar could be perfect for you.
No Black Ink
One simple way to make a tattoo read as light and delicate is to avoid black ink altogether. Without it, tattoos feel lighter and brighter, and more improvisational.
How cute is this little hummingbird? We’re in love with this tiny wonder, and we imagine many of you will also be.
Look to the sky for other natural beauties that will inspire you. This darling and light moon made of floral shapes is so charming.

We are deeply in love with the color combination of teal and orange in this design. It tells a story without being loud about it. It appears organic in shape but also reads as abstract. So pretty!
This is the first lemon tattoo on the list, but it won’t be the last. If you’d like a slice of life, go with your favorite fruit. We think this would also look fantastic in a placement similar to Underwood’s design.

Pretty as a Picture
As with Underwood, we’ve got another daisy forearm tattoo to share with you. It is placed in a light grey frame which helps give it definition while also looking otherworldly. Bravo!
From the Sea
It would have been very on-theme if Underwood had gotten a seashell or a fish while she was at the beach. If that appeals to you, shells make some of the most meditative and cool tattoos.
Crowning the Shoulder
We love this floral design that swoops over and crowns the shoulder. Isn’t it breathtaking? Deep violet, pinks, and reds all work in harmony here.
A word of caution: hand tattoos are the quickest to fade. This is especially true for your palms as tattoos on them tend to completely fade away in just a couple of years. If you are going to go with something as delicate as this bee or Underwood’s flower, you might want to consider a different placement.
What a haunting design of peony flowers spilling out of diamond shapes. The line-work is just so delicate and refined. For the most elegant design, consider something similar.

Ornamental tattoos bring so much beauty to any area of the body. This one takes on a bracelet quality thanks to its placement near the wrist. Go as big or small as you like with something like this.
