Human fingers have many uses - from picking your nose to flipping the bird and pointing at your favorite doughnuts in a coffee shop; when it comes to everyday life, these appendixes are truly invaluable. Now, if there would only be a way to adorn their sausage-like shapes with some body art... Enter finger tattoos! What has started with Cara Delevigne's tiny lion is now a number one cool tattoo trend, popular among celebrities and common folk alike.

Though it might seem that the small area on your fingers might leave less room for imagination, it actually works the other way around. Smaller space means more unique tattoos! In this tattoo gallery compiled by Bored Panda, you'll be sure to find unicorns, abstract designs, and intricate flower ornaments - everything can be squeezed on your ten (or in some cases a few less or a few more) digits.

Now, if you need to be inspired for picking your next small tattoo design, use one of your digits to scroll down and check our glorious compilation. As per usual - don't forget to tell us which one of these finger tattoo ideas you've liked the most!

Does anyone know if there is meant to be a meaning behind the line tattoos. I have seen a few and I personally don’t get it.

The tattoo looks nice but white ink is notorious for fading pretty quickly.

What is meant to be on the middle finger? And is that supposed to be a spray can nib on the pinky?
