Superstar Katy Perry has a brand new tattoo! She got a small design on her finger to commemorate her Las Vegas residency Play. The singer shared images of the cute tattoo on her Instagram account, and shared some of her excitement about it.
“You guys know what it is? I bet you can’t guess what I’m getting right now,” Perry said in the video before revealing her new ink. “But I am getting my tour tattooed, it’s a tradition.”
“8 more #PLAY shows left so it’s tour tattoo time!!!” she also shared.
In a follow up post, Perry showed off a small mushroom tattoo that resembles imagery used as part of her residency. Her Vegas run will come to an end on November 4. Let’s take a look at the whimsical design and other finger tattoos like it.

How about that cartoonish little mushroom? We think it is darling. We would be pleased as punch to have something this cute to show off.
Eye of Horus
This is a teeny tiny design on the inside of a middle finger. It took some serious skill and probably breath-holding on the part of the artist. The Eye of Horus is an ancient symbol that can be found in the pyramids of Egypt. What a mysterious looking little tatt.
The Crescent Moon
Sometimes only a moon will do. This crescent moon design is crisp and clean and looks fantastic.
She’s a Lady
This ladybug looks life-size and has been shaded and colored beautifully. Ladybugs have long been considered a sign of good luck and with one tattooed on you, you’ll bring good fortune wherever you go.
Fan the Flames
Spicy! This mini flame brings the fire. This design seems to be warning others not to get burned.
A Gentle Reminder
This pretty little bow looks properly dainty on a digit. We don’t know if this person just likes bows or if this design is supposed to serve as a reminder of something. Either way, we won’t be forgetting this cutie any time soon.
The infinity symbol, of course, means forever. You’ll see a lot of infinity symbol finger designs on ring fingers as some couples get them to symbolize the hope that their love lasts a lifetime. However, this person got this stick and poke symbol on their middle finger. They must be forever flipping people off?
This arrow finger example is very well done with clean, fine lines. Perhaps this person is a hunter, or maybe they thought it would be cooler than wearing a ring. Either way, this is a great idea.
A Full House
Hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs are all symbols from a deck of playing cards. These finger designs would be excellent for a cardshark.
Don’t Put a Ring on It
While infinity symbols are common among couples, there not the only way to show your love. This couple got a north star and a compass to symbolize how they fit together. These sweet little tatts are a great alternative to rings. If they were lost without each other before, they know the way home now.
While the meaning of “om” differs from person to person, it most often has a religious or spiritual meaning behind it. And as the above picture shows, it’s the perfect tiny design if you’re looking to add some art to your hand.
Are you looking just to add some design to your digits? These tiny lotus flower designs just might be what you’re looking for. Lotus flowers also hold a special meaning, “purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration, and rebirth.”
I Can’t Stop Smiling
This unique design is sure to keep a smile on your face and on the faces of others. If not that, it’s sure to remind you to do so.
A Touch of Pride
Here’s a cheerful and prideful example that would be a great fit for any LGBTQ+ person or an ally. The artist did an excellent job sizing the design for a finger and the colors each shine despite being so very small.
“Lavender flowers represent love & calmness,” the person who shared this image writes. “Purple is the color of the crown chakra, which is the energy center associated with spiritual connectivity.” Sounds good to us!
Here’s another example of a micro design. This time, we find a black rose that looks moody and dramatic. Get something different for each finger to express even more!
Mix & Match
These fingers look magical and vaguely witchy which might appeal to you. Classic imagery paired with abstract finger designs look so great next to one another.
Expressing your passions through art is always a smart idea for finger tattoos and any ink in general. We find a baker who loves to cook and has decided to use a chef’s hat to express that love.
For obvious reasons, the middle finger is the most popular one to get tattooed. We find an abstract splash of a design on this middle digit.
The inside of finger tattoos are hugely popular today. We find some crisp numbers in this example. Many refer to this placement as a peekaboo tattoo.
Nautical motifs are popular for any ink so it should come as no surprise that they are popular for finger tattoos as well. Anchors symbolize steadfastness along with strength, faith, and hope.
Falling for Floral
We have seen several examples of floral designs on this list but these delicate flowers really spoke to us. A word of caution: tattoos that are this light tend to fade quickly on the fingers.
The Right Direction
We find an arrow symbol in this finger tattoo that seems to be pointing the way. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel for your design. Keep it simple for a straightforward feel.
We love when tattoo artists forgo the standard black line and instead use color to create the shape. It’s a more impressionist look that is the definition of subtlety. Bravo!
As we’ve seen, Katy Perry’s new finger tattoo is more than just a fashion statement – it’s an expression of her unique personality and style. Whether you’re planning to get your own finger tattoo or simply appreciate the artistry involved, remember that each piece of ink tells a story. Happy tattooing!
For even more celebrity ink, keep reading. Chrissy Teigen also has some finger tattoos. Check those out and more like it.
Chrissy Teigan’s Finger Dots Tattoos Are So Cute!
“Please don’t tell me this means something in morse code, I just like dots,” the model captioned the photo on Instagram. Fans responded overwhelmingly in favor of the new tattoos. We must admit, we think it looks so unique and fun. Let’s see what else is out there, shall we?
Mandala Inspired Dream
We think these finger tattoos might be a touch too busy for Chrissy, but we love how dainty and decorative the mandala design looks here. We imagine this tattoo was completed using a stick and poke application which involves manual tattooing with a needle and no machine. You can get much sharper lines this way, though it is time-consuming. This is very reminiscent of Mehndi.
Cute Micro Tattoos
How good are these little micro tattoos? We find an Aries symbol, snake, eye, and other shapes including the little dots near the fingernails just like Chrissy Teigen chose. Again, these were likely applied using a stick and poke method. What fun!
Feeling the Floral
How good are these little vine and flower tattoos? Look to the botanic world for inspiration is always a smart idea. These delicate designs have been so sharply applied. Take a look at one of the shaded leaves and you will see a ton of teeny-tiny dots. How remarkable!
Break a Tiny Heart
Here’s another finger tattoo idea we really love. This person has gone very minimal here choosing a heart symbol in simple, black ink. It’s is so so small which makes it feel perfect. Any super tiny shapes like these would work great if you find the right tattoo artist to collaborate with.
Dots and Dashes
The artist responsible for this tattoo confirmed that it was the result of being “handpoked” which is simply another term for stick and poke. It shows as these lines and little dots are just so fine and neat. We love the way the lines mimic jewelry. Jewelry you don’t have to take off!
Waves on Waves
Take a look at this person’s fingers on the hand closest to their chest in this shot. We love the hypnotic wave design that’s a considerable amount more coverage than many others on this list. However, if you have bold taste, it could be the perfect sort of design for you!
Fit for a Cookbook Author?
What do you think Chrissy would think of these kitchen tools micro tattoos? We feel like a cookbook author such as herself would approve. Expressing who you are is what tattoos are for! Get personal with it and you will not regret it!

Dots and Abstract Shapes
A series of dots and crosses dot the real estate on these fingers. We think something similar to this would be perfect for someone who wanted more than just the tiny little dots, but not much more! We think this is really cute!
Flowers on Repeat
Wow! These flowers that repeat on each finger are really fun. We like the placement near the finger nails. We realize that it might be “too much” for some but for a lover of flowers who want to express their love, something similar would be perfect.
We find vaguely geometric designs that look so fashionable and interesting. We love the juxtaposition of these lines with the circular shapes on the three fingers in the middle of the pack.
Check out these dangly little designs that remind us of crystals hanging from a chandelier. The lines are so thin making them appear even more special.
Everyday objects as subject for tattoos has emerged as a really fun tattoo trend in recent years. A spring, match, fingernail clippers, and a spring make a debut in these finger tattoos. We love how seemingly random they are, just like life.
Simplest Line Tattoo
What do you think of this very thin ring formed by a very fine line? Would you like something this simple? We think it is fun and a great way to get started on a finger tattoo journey. It’s stunning in its solidarity and simplicity.
Stick to the Dots
For those of you who think Chrissy took it too far with her dots, how about these even more scaled-back finger dots? We think these dot tattoos could be a compromise for those who are intrigued but do not want to go all in.
Feeling Those Phases
We dig this double decker finger tattoo design. More intricate shapes are found near the fingertips while the moon in its stages are found on top. Too much or just right?
Not many are bold enough to go with color on the fingers. It should also be noted that stick and poke tattoos have more of a tendency to fade over time. Thus, colorful ink will not stay as vibrant for as long. However, this green botanical element looks gorgeous now.
The Smallest Key You’ve Ever Seen
Wow! Have you ever seen a tattoo so small look so neat? We can see notches in the key as well as other design features despite it being no bigger than a needle. We are very much into this idea.
Meaningful tattoos are the name of the game and these symbols mean something to the person who has handpicked them for these finger tattoos. They all are composed of lines the same width which makes the overall design look uniform and neat.
We doubt many people are attracted to getting something like “SELF MADE” tattooed across their fingers in huge letters, but what about these very neat and petite typeface letters? We think these tattoos look very pleasant.
Between the Fingers
We are not entirely sure where we stand when it comes to tattoos on the inside or between the fingers. It’s emerged as a trend in recent years. If you like the idea, tattooing in this location will offer a more subtle tattoo, almost a peek-a-boo.
A Different Take
We feel this glittery glam star moment. Repeating the star design is fun and still remains pretty abstract while still being evocative of stars or sparkles.
Black & White
Here’s a mandala-inspired tattoo design that you will encounter often when looking at people’s finger tattoos. What is unique is the white ink that has been applied here. White ink tattoos have become extremely popular even though they do not hold up well and fade relatively fast. It looks great as a highlight here.
Subtlest Finger Tattoos
Now that we showed you the possibilities that white ink can open up for finger tattoos, we want to share a couple of examples of just white ink. These tattoos are the subtlest way possible to get you some ink on your digits.
White ink will fade over time becoming virtually invisible for most within a year or two. That could appeal to you though! We think they are a super fun way for folks to express themselves without being saddled with the knowledge that they will leave an immortal mark.
There you go! We hope Chrissy Teigen and these finger tattoos inspired you to come up with your own designs. Collaborate with an artist you trust and talk to them the possibilities of a stick and poke design for those really sharp shapes and lines.
